Hello hello! Welcome back. It’s been awhile since last week’s big announcement on the blog (see below for more)! I’ve been busy with work and traveling every weekend to see friends and family (big shout out to my pops – it’s his 60th birthday today! Happy birthday dad!).

I get asked all the time – how do you wear heels everyday? 1.) I’m a former ballerina so I’m used to putting my little tootsies through some serious stress! And 2.) I wear comfortable heels! Or, at least alternate between sky-high stilettos in the AM to somewhat comfortable heels in the PM.

Comfortable heels? Yep. They exist. Trust me. The most important factor when shopping for a pair of “comfortable heels” is to look for a thick, blocky heel, like this pair from Sam Edelman. A thick heel will give your ankles more support while still providing height. Think less wobbling and more power walking. Plus, they rock and make your legs look way longer! For someone petite like me, that’s super important!

Lastly, consider the narrowness at the toe when searching for comfort. Solution you ask? An open-toed heel to give your little toes room to breathe.

Wear this pair with a sharp blazer or with boyfriend jeans on the weekends. You can also wear them as styled here… with a black crop top layered over a button down and mini skirt!
