Working with clothes, shoes and accessories all day is literally my dream job. There's just one little "adjustment" that I'm still getting used to. I went from sitting in a cubicle at an office, to standing up and moving around all day. I like having an active job, and I'll likely lose a little weight, for which I'm grateful. But... I've had to give up my high heels...
So, my newest challenge is styling outfits that look cute with flat shoes. (And, for that matter, finding cute flats, since the bulk of my shoe wardrobe is heels.) Yesterday, I wore my riding boots - today, I'm wearing some basic ballet flats. But my latest shoe obsession is lace-up oxfords. I recently scored a pair of vintage Bally of Switzerland snakeskin oxfords at Goodwill, and I'm still figuring out the perfect outfit combination to wear them.
$295.00 at ShopBop. Snakeskin embossed leather oxfords, $100.00 at H&M. Balenciaga purple lace-up oxfords, $450.00 at Yoox. "Blazon of Glory" studded oxfords, $65.00 at ModCloth.
Any more style ideas for cute flats? I definitely need more in my wardrobe, and I'm happy for any advice to keep my feet looking fashionable and staying in good shape!
