Incomplete

The decision to wear flats vs. heels is certainly a complicated one.  In my heart it's a no brainer - the decision is heels 100% of the time.  But sometimes my feet hurt and the thought of balancing around on 4 inches all day makes me more tired than that 2 hour conference call on my calendar.  Don't get me wrong - there are so many cute flats out there, but whenever I wear them, I feel a bit incomplete. Forget a man! It's my heels that complete me...

Your sweater shows off your big heart perfectly!

Valerie said...

You look great! Your feet with thank you for taking a break on heels...I've heard so many horror stories about the damage heels can cause to your feet..doesn't mean I'm giving mine up but at least taking a break every now and then. :-) And Naturalizer is a great brand- they are so comfy and supportive. Cute outfit!

I feel the exact same way! In fact one of my new favorite quotes is from Victoria Beckham: "I can't concentrate in flats!" haha... I feel the same even though I think flats are super cute. I prefer heels probably 95 percent of the time!

Love your sweater!

Lovely sweater dear!

Love the heart sweater and houndstooth is a lovely pattern, too!

Lauren said...

You are too funny. My decision is almost always flats! I cannot stand running up and down the stairs at work in heels!

Laura @ Chaotic Domestic said...

I love that sweater. I have it in grey/pink. I always wear heels for work, but often choose flats outside of work. I'm really trying to switch it up a bit more! :) I have a lot of wedges/sandals, so there should be more variety when it warms up!

Citrus - Refreshing Fashion said...

this is such a great look that black and blue combo mixed in with that print is FANTASTIC!

Bravoe Runway said...

It's is pretty much 100% for me as well because I have a high arch so flats are murder on my feet. Plus I need the extra height,

Helene said...

ever since I broke my ankle I'm not allowed to wear heels, so flats it is for me!!

Emily {Isnt That Charming} said...

Haha, I feel you, sometimes wearing flats feels weird but they look so cute!
Isn’t That Charming.

TheTinyHeart said...

Even though I'm so petite I almost always wear flats to work...I'd rather be comfy! I usually save my heels for nights out.

Alissa said...

I go back and forth between heels and flats, sometimes I just don't want to deal with heels so I just grab whatever shoes are flats.

I have that sweater and I haven't style it with a skirt, I need to do that! Happy Tuesday!

Sam said...

Love this adorable outfit, the heart sweater is so pretty! I am a flats girl but when love heels for their power of upliftment and sexy attitude!

Ginny said...

Heels vs. flats is hard. I totally prefer heels on myself, but sometimes I wish I'd worn flats at the end of the day. Regardless, this looks cute with flats :)

I love this combination! And now I want to wear my houndstooth dress with a printed sweater!

I love how you styled that fun heart sweater for the office! Sometimes the feet just need a brake. Yo totally pull of flats with your height!!

Agnes Mayer said...

Love the sweater and sometimes you just gotta go with flats. I wear flats most of the time, considering I"m chasing a 4 yr old most of the time.

I used to feel the same way, but the commute walk in heels started to really be terrible...now that I have new commuting shoes, though, I'm eager to get used to heels at work again! This outfit is super cute, even with flats :)

I've been eying those sweaters at Old Navy like crazy! But I'm kind of on a shopping ban so I have to resist.

I totally agree with you re: heels vs. flats. Although for me on weekends it's flats every time :-)

love jenny xoxo said...

you look darling!!!

FutureLint said...

I love this look - so adorably preppy! I feel the same way about heels (but I'm 5'3" and work with teenagers so I need the extra height!)

April said...

I have the same problem! Heels look so much more grown up and lady like but my feet cant always handle them! I have the flattest feet though. You look great! Love this outfit!
(If I wear heels I always have flats in my bag or under a desk to change if my feet are dying!)

Richelle Lynn Garn said...

Such a cute sweater!! I love love love your skirt too. Will you ever have a day where you don't look amazing?

newpetite said...

I always reach out for my flats and heels are only for going out with the 3 year old! You never know when they take off and hobbling behind them in heels is no fun.
You look lovely and I love your sweater!

Omg I love this outfit so much! this sweater is really so cute, and i love your skirt too so much! i followed you on GFC, it would mean a lot if you followed back.

I'm the same way- I'd be in heels all the time if it weren't for the achy feet after a long day (and the slick winter streets!). :)

You look gorgeous here; love the sweater!

I love heels too but for me flats always win. Sometimes I wish they didn't because heels can look so much better (and help my 5'3 shortness) but either way I think this outfit is gorgeous! You look beautiful!

Antonio Topalovic said...

I love your style,nice!

Trenchcoats to Tiaras said...

I know that feeling... I LOVE heels, but I almost never feel the willingness to put them on when I have to walk a couple of miles every day, and when I do...my feet are generally not okay for them again for a while. Still, at least flats can be pretty cute.

I feel the same way about flats, plus I am short (5'4" on a good day) and I'd rather feel tall! But you look great in flats! And I love the patterned skirt with the heart sweater!

Jill J @ Classy with a Kick said...

I debate that EVERY day. I always want heels but then I end up wearing flats. I find that platforms are the best in-between because you get a high heel that feels like a flat!

Love that you added Rex into that : )

I don't know how people that wear heels all day do it. I could never last more than 4 hours...MAX. I can't do flats either though since I find them too flat.

Love the sweater : )

Elana said...

This sweater is so fun! And I wish I could wear heels as much as you do. My clumsiness forces me to be a flats girl 100% of the time haha

geelongfashionista said...

I fully appreciate flats vs heels, and totally agree that heels make me feel better.
I always cringe when I have to wear flats and at the moment they seem to be worn a lot!
Your flats are great and wonderful with your outfit!

Looove that skirt (dress?). I'm a sucker for houndstooth, gets me every time. And I agree, sometimes choosing between heels and flats is a toughy.

I absolutely LOVE the sweater. On the flats - totally feel you. I rarely wear them. While they're maybe more comfy than heels...I do find they hurt sometimes in the arches of my feet. Like there is no support I guess.
