I used to live in heels, because I really needed the extra height 😉 It all became a distant memory when Hunter rocked up… and even more of an impossibility now that we have 2 kids. I spend most days in flats now – predominantly ballet flats and sandals.
The issue with wearing flats is that they then make you look super casual. So if I go to the city in just a tee and shorts and my flats… well.. I reckon I look like the nanny or the maid 😉 For that reason, I tend to go for pretty flats, so at least they make me feel vaguely more dressed up.
I particularly adore my new Chanel leather sandals because they’re uber comfortable, have cute hardware detailing, and they’re made of soft leather and black (ie. I think it makes them seem ‘nicer’ for the city than wearing rubber flip flops). They’re easy to slip on, and a great daily sandal to wear 🙂
