I Hate Heels

I have nothing really big to share with all of you. I've been pretty tired lately because I just started my new job as "sales support" in Banana Republic. Yesterday, I worked from 8am-5pm mainly working at the cash register. The whole day, I felt like such a frosh. Everyone else who worked at the store knew each other and were making jokes all day, while me and my fellow newbs wandered around doe-eyed, confused and friendless (such a freshman move). During lunch, all the veterans were eating with their friends and we just sat at a newbie table. I'm sure it will get better soon with more practice on the job and after we spend more time with the other associates. At least I hope?
Fake high-low skirt!

So while I was looking through my closet for Banan Republic appropriate outfits, I ended up picking up an outfit that is not Banana Republic at all. I just bought this long maroon skirt from Forever 21. I like how this skirt has a slightly different cut with slits on the side. Also, it's super fun because I can easily create a high-low skirt without buying one! You can't even tell can you! Ok, you can but if I add a belt you wouldn't really be able to. The rest of my outfit is from a year ago *gasp*. My shirt is actually one of those tight short dresses that were so cool last year. That's a cropped leather jacket from H&M that I actually found via Late Afternoon. And my sandal heels are from Lucky Brand that I have never had the opportunity to show you guys!
I think I was pretty clever with this ;)

Last year, I felt like getting super high heels were the best way to get my style to the blogger level. Looking at bloggers like Aimee or Olivia Lopez, I felt so pressured to buy heels (especially super high heels like those Jeffrey Campbells that were so popular this past year). Ultimately, they looked so trendy and fashionable and I thought it was so much because of the heels. But I've discovered that although I did like these heels, heels of this height and heels in general are just not conducive for my lifestyle. Both at school and at home I live in hilly areas and cannot drive, so walking around in 6 in heels is a bit of a challenge. And that is why this year I'm looking for fun and fashionable shoes that are flat (or at the very worst 3 inches) and easy and comfortable to walk in. Sounds like a plan (and a future Daydreaming About Post)!

  4. Over time you will be in with the jokes too! That's what it's like starting somewhere new so I wouldn't stress too much about it. As for the heels - don't feel you have to wear them because other bloggers do, just wear what you like. There's nothing wrong with a pair of flat shoes! :)
