Now, I love flats and flip-flops as much as the next girl and tend to wear them a lot in the summer to the park, zoo, etc., but they tend to make my already short (5'4") frame appear even shorter and bulkier. The simple fix, add a heel. Almost every outfit I put on suddenly looks better in a heel or wedge then it does in a flat. Want to look longer and leaner? Make a heal your new best friend :)
I also decided to enter Chippmuck.com's Expert Shopper Contest again with this outfit. I came in 7th last time and the top five won. Help me make the top five this time by loving my look here. You can vote each day too. I seriously appreciate it ladies!
It's crazy how adding a heel instantly lengthens and slims my figure. Like I said above, I love sandals, but I'm wearing this with heels for a lunch date with a girl friend. This look was inspired by Tara, I loved the mix of print and texture in her look so decided to give it a try here, and am loving the result. Here are some more pictures of this outfit:
