…a post inspired by tired feet!
(and especially before winter hits us with a vengeance!)
Over the past few weeks, the sunshiny weather is Cape Town has seen quite a few events & activations that I’ve worked on & attended, outdoors.
With each of these, outdoors being key and on-my-feet being top of mind, I’ve asked myself the question most of us ask, hours before heading out the front door – “What am I going to wear?!!!!!”
So after leaving a pile of clothing on the bed, which somewhat resembled a snow capped mountain, I found ensembles best suited to the occasions. Yay! Success! No…not quite…what about shoes?!!!
Heels in every color & style stared at me – I could hear a little voice “say pick me, pick me” & another voice saying, “oh we will never survive the day in those!”. Hearing those voices is a topic for another day 😄 So glorious heels were not an option with the surfaces & the amount of walking to be done. Sorry Loubie baby!
Then I spotted my sneakers – it was a sigh of relief! Nike Airmax or Adidas ZX Flux are always an option. Dress up or down, they make a statement – they are trendy, comfy & look awesome! These would definitely do for a few of the more casual events but there were two that I’d need to rethink.
Just when I was ready to give up, I noticed a box peeking out from the bottom of the pile. Flats – no I couldn’t, or maybe I could?! They were percent! Fashion & comfort – now that’s a win! It was that voice again, “we love her” said my feet…if it wasn’t them then we may have a little problem 😆
Until next time, consider those flats for your next big event & you may gain the love of those tired feet forever! If that doesn’t help, remember Coco Chanel’s words “Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”
