The Heart Beats Happy When It Has A Place

Wore this to a birthday dinner date with Chris :)

I've never been a stiletto kinda gal. If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you'd notice that most of my heels are either wedges or stacked and chunky. I can't handle the skinny heel of Louboutins, Blahniks, and alike. They just look so painful to me. So I had some reservations before I purchased these booties. They're heavily discounted and they looked amazing in pictures, but I was worried about the heel shape. I made the purchase anyway and I was extremely surprised at how comfortable, sturdy, and... comfortable! they were. I can jog, skip and do a somersault in them. Ok, maybe not the last one (yet) but you get the picture ;)


Have a great weekend, peeps! (o^_^o)

You dressed these booties up so nicely! & I agree, I'll wear a stiletto heel occasionally but I love a good stacked heel or wedge.

Kristy, I'm so glad you decided to get those booties. I've loved them with every outfit pairing so far, but I think this may be one of my faves. I LOVE that tiered two tone skirt! Fabulous. I still hate the fact that we do not have an H&M here. Urgh!!

Hope you have a great weekend, too!

xx Love & Aloha

Some shoes can be so surprising in terms of comfort like that! I have a pair that look so uncomfortable yet totally aren't. I love how the skirt is layered like that... black & brown isn't usually a combination I'm drawn too but I really like it here.

Yes! Being able to jog in a pair of heels is SO important to the purchasing process :) Love the pop of red with this outfit!

I feel so much better in thick heels and wedges. Also I'm so terrify to break those or worse be in pain all day. I'm in love with that skirt. It's such a pretty thing to layer.

Love love the lace top with the rich brown in the skirt. Such a warm look, especially with the red clutch.

I'm not a heel person at all, but it's nice to live vicariously through all you girls that can rock a gorgeous heel!

hi kristy,

i'm more into wedge/chunky heels too!

the bag i have in the 5th picture is from dooney bourke called the editor's tote in black. i got it maybe 2 years ago and it still looks new! i used it for school, but the strap is kind of thin so i don't use it often anymore. you can find it here:

Love the gold edges on the clutch! The problem I have with clutches in those shapes is that after I put everything in (wallet, keys, phone, etc.), it ends up looking so lumpy!
