Grandma that I am, I wear flats all the time. You might think that at 5’1”, I would be self-conscious about my petite stature, but I’m not. I’m short and there is nothing wrong with that. I do not need to compensate by wearing heels. I enjoy wearing heeled shoes occasionally, just for fun, but flats are my go-to, running-around shoes. And that’s why I was so tickled by this funny tidbit from the February 2013 issue of O magazine:
“Spring fashion is shaping up to be a stiletto-free zone. No longer will you stand at a cocktail party praying for the sweet release of death. Embrace your ballet slippers, my friend—the flat will set you free!”
Happy weekend, friends! I hope it’s a good one for all of you. And definitely wear your flats—if not your ballet slippers, then your flat boots for a nice long winter walk.
