You Choose the Shoes – Week 20

Hello friends,


I hope all is well in your world.  I am slowly but surely getting adjusted to having only one son at home with Malik now away at college.  He seems to be doing well, last week I received a few text messages and 1 phone call!  I can now fully appreciate the “call your mom” statement.


Thank you all for the votes last week, it was a close race but the winner squeaked by and it was the NO Bow Dollhouse beige wedges.



This week you will be choosing between high and low, as in flats versus heels.

Heels vs Flats

These gorgeous heels were actually given to me from fellow blogger, Nout over at SandpaperKisses and when I saw them I was blown away in love!  If you get a chance go over to her place and show her some bloggy love – she is just too adorable!

Not only were these shoes a perfect fit, but the platform in the front made them uber comfortable.  Now they may not seem as comfortable as a their contenders, these well-worn pair of color block flats purchased from CitiTrends.

These ballerina flats are also very comfy, but for only a short period of time.  I need arch support so I find wearing flats for long period of time uncomfortable.  

How about you, can you wear flats without discomfort?

So are you ready to choose?  Which will it be, the flats or…

Hello friends,

you’ve seen this outfit before because it’s one of my favorites but today I am wearing it with a different pair of shoes and I threw on these cheapie sunnies just for fun.

Blues Brothers Sunnies

JCPenney has the best pencil skirts in their Worthington collection and their clearance sales are always on point.  The two tone wedges were purchased as part of the haul.
