Even while working in retail and standing for many hours each day, I have worn high heels for most of my adult life.
Last month I began to experience aching legs at bedtime, making it very difficult to fall asleep. As we age, our circulatory system, muscles, and even our skeletal structure changes. The soles of our feet at the ball start to become thinner. Our gait and balance will also start to change over time. All these things combine to make heels and the results of wearing them very unpleasant.
I still want to slip into a pair of heels as I am getting dressed, but my body now reminds me that I need to honor this stage of life by not wearing heels so often. This change requires a few wardrobe tweaks. Heels make everything I wear look better because they give me the leg lengthening effect I need to balance with my upper body. I will wear some of my more comfortable heels occasionally in the evenings, but flats and low wedges are becoming my regular daytime shoes. Keep visiting this blog site as I work out all these details and share what I learn with you.
An upscale boutique located inside the resort is named Cloth. I almost always take a walk through to see what is new.
After dining, shopping and taking a walk through the magnificent old building, we stopped for a rest in the Great Hall.
My look for this day included a white linen jacket by Calvin Klein via Stein Mart last year with the scarf I purchased at Celeste’s in Blowing Rock after looking for a square silk scarf for three months last summer. (The silk scarf was the $256 inspiration for all the scarves I now offer on my shopping site here.) The black tank top and pants are from Chico’s last year. The bag is from Express. My necklace is by French Kande here. The shoes are by Nine West from last year.
Keep in mind that pointed toes elongate the leg and look more dressed up than shoes with rounded toes.
