Playing dress up with flats

labels identified dressing up flats

Today’s challenge question…

Can flats look as dressy as heels?

First, I debated whether my outfit was too sexy for work – a tight skirt and a shirt?
Briefly I thought…who cares?...and then I realized, Oh – maybe my boss.

But I tucked my shirt in anyway, belted it with some color, and then came to my senses and decided to trade in my heels for flats.



The problem is that I have this constant proportion rule in my head that tells me if I wear a tight pencil-type skirt, I need to wear some type of heel with it.

However, I’m six feet tall, and sometimes, every once in a while, I don’t like to be taller than everyone else in my office (except for the guy who is 6’8”, but honestly, who is taller than that guy? And really, it I was, I’d probably be cashing in on some basketball or volleyball team and have at least one Olympic gold medal hanging on the corkboard in my bedroom [see, I AM a winner!], and I’d tell you all that the weather is JUST FINE up here in Championland, thanks for asking.)

Anyway, I decided to keep the flats.
I don’t love it, but I guess it works.

  1. the last 2 years i've been LIVING in flats - when i discovered i can wear shoes that don't require ANY skill at all - i was sold - i couldn't believe it took me so long (i use to live in heels!)

  2. I think they can work. This outfit is super cute. Also, I recognize that Express top, and it is nowhere near the kind of cleavage I saw online that turned me off it. It's super cute!
