How to Make your Heels Comfortable

How to Make your Heels Comfortable

June 1, 2017

Do you find yourself wearing these cute shoes, but realize after one hour your feet hurt so bad that you wish you didn’t wear them? Or did you buy some shoes and can’t wear them to that day party this weekend because you know your heels are too high, and you don’t feel comfortable walking around looking cute in them? I personally have experienced these situations. To this day, I have a pair of 5 inch heels, still in the box, never worn. And then you think, just a waste of money, smh. But let me help you with some tips for those heel issues.

So there are 5 easy tips to guide you on what kind of shoes to buy when you want to be comfortable.

Heel Placement

1. Speed 98 Bow Stiletto  2. X2B Black Patent Stiletto 3. Adrielle Caged Heeled Sandal

The heel should be placed directly under your the center of your heel. If your heel is too far back, it wont support your weight properly. If the heel is narrow, look for the shoes that have the heel dip down a little it from the top.

Heel thickness

5. Joe Fresh Women’s Suede Block Heel Sandals 4. Aldo Ibania suede heeled sandals  6.Head Over Heels By Dune ‘Missy’ High Sandals

The wider the heel the greater you have stability. Even better if the sole is rounded it helps keep your weight back on the ball of your feet instead of on your toes.

Sole Thickness

7. Jessica Simpson – Willey Women’s Shoes 8.Qupid Patent Platform Stiletto  9.Jessica Simpson Carri Peep Toe Platform Stiletto

High heel shoes are more comfortable when there is a little padding.  Usually platforms, are good for comfort especially on hard surfaces.

Sole Rigidity

10.Calvin Klein Malia Stretch Knit Pull-On Peep Toe Stiletto Booties 11. Free Love Boutique Clora Pumps 12. Marni Round-Toe Rubber Pumps

Try to stay away from shoes with rigid soles made out of wood or hard plastic. Leather and rubber soles move with your feet and help you adjust better to inconsistencies in the ground.

Security

The easier the shoe to slip on and off, the harder it is to walk in them.  The shoes should feel like an extension of your body. A boot or something with straps that goes around the ankle and/or the front of the foot is better.

You can use anyone of these style tips to make your heels more comfortable for you. With these styling tips you can actually enjoy the shoes that you buy. Just remember these style tips when you are buying heels, and you wont waste anymore money. When you’re wearing these kind of shoes, you will not only be comfortable at that party, but you instantly feel confident with every stride you take, knowing you won’t fall or your feet won’t hurt in an hour. Hope this helps my loves, and if there are any other fashion struggles you’re dealing with let me know!

3 Ways to Style a Blazer

May 20, 2017

 

Do you find yourself only wearing a blazer to work? Do you have any issues with styling your blazers? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then it’s a great thing that you stopped by to check out this post! Today’s blog post will provide different style tips for your blazer and also assist you with shopping for other pieces to style with your blazer. Yea, it is nice to wear that blazer to work or to a business meeting, but you don’t have to keep it professional with that blazer every time you wear it. You can dress it down for a casual look to wear grocery shopping or a mall run. Or you can dress it up to go out to a party or a concert or even date night with your boo thang!

The first look is for a “casual lady”. I paired this blazer with a pair of jeans and a tee. Yes a t-shirt!! You can dress a lot of things in your wardrobe by adding a simple t-shirt. This is a plain navy blue blazer. A nice pair of jeans are always good for a casual day. Even if the casual day involves nothing but grocery shopping and running to the cleaners to pick up some things.

With this casual style, you can still feel confident even if you’re just throwing on a tee. I added some slip on flip flops. They’re a settle nude color which gives you a feminine look where you don’t feel completely dressed down. Of course we have to add accessories with this look. Nothing too flashy with this casual style. I added a nice navy blue watch with pairing bracelets that matches the flip flops and t-shirt. The tote is a must! Where ever you are headed on this laid back day , you’re going to need a purse. I know on days like this I’m usuall running errands. So I’m going to have to carry a big enough purse, to tote my things around in. With that being said, this tote is great for a casual day. And last of course I’m going to add a pair of sunglasses. Because it’s Spring the sun is going to be out, and you’ll be prepared with some fashionable shades to wear. Every piece in this look allows you to feel good and stay comfortable. The nude color allows you to feel femine. And when you think you can’t be casual with a blazer… Stay confident and style yourself like this “casual lady”.

This next look is when you might have a hot date. Or maybe you’re just going out with your ladies to a party. Either situation you can add pieces with your blazer to style a night on the town look. Of course I paired this blazer with some metallic shorts. These shorts add “sassy” to this look. And with this nude croptop you’ll be sure to turn some heads. I styled some nude booties with this outfit to show off those legs! The booties are a great shoe to dress this style up.

The acccessories added to this look are key. I paired a big necklace, thick plated bangle, sapphire colored earrings and navy and gold watch. Here I paired another tote bag. In this style you will only be using this purse for stylsh purposes only. You won’t have a lot of items in your bag for the night. But the colors and style of this purse brings the outfit together. So you better work it. Show off those legs and feel modest with the blazer too. Just remember for this style the main focus is to dress the blazer up. And I think this style nails it.

This last style will have everyone at work thinking, “she is looking so chic today”. The great thing about having confidence, is everyone notices it! When you feel fashionable even going to work, it shows that you take the time on your apperance. The blazer is paired with matching blue pants and a bright yellow shirt. You should always add a pop of color when you’re going to work. They say yellow is a happy, positive, and energetic color. Three things you should want to have at work.

Business Chic.

 

It’s Spring so you better rock those spring colors like this canary yellow. And the navy blue and yellow is something most people wouldn’t even think to pair together. But this style works. I found these yellow mules that have a nice comformtable stlye when you’re at work. You dont always have to wear a shoe with a small heel. As you can see the accessories are quite simple. The yellow studded earrings matches the top and mules. And of course the one item that is a must, is the watch. A watch is the perfet accent peice for this style. The wallet is big enough to keep money, ID, and credit cards. A purse isn’t a must to carry to work. This wallet is simple and chic for this style. Now you see you can be chic when dressing for work as well.
And there you have it! Three looks to show how to style a blazer. And seriously this is how I shop. These styles help you to style one specific peice you have in your wardrobe, so you won’t wear that blazer only once. I usually take one piece (in this case the blazer) and utilize it for more than just one occasion. I not only wear it to work, but I can dress it up or dress it down. These styles add a feminity, sass, and happienss to your own life as a confident woman. I am sure these shopping guides will help you replicate your own styles and continue to be the women you are becoming. Until next time stay confident and style that blazer more ways than just once!
