My dearest fashionistas- how many of you have, despite your best judgment, walked proudly into work wearing your newest 5-inch heels, just to hobble and limp out to the parking lot at 5 o'clock? Well, turn that frown upside down, because after this post, I guarantee you will be able to both look good & feel good!

Here's my approach. It's quite simple, but often overlooked. My routine is usually to put on a "spare pair" of sorts right when I leave the house, whether they manifest in the form of kitten heels, oxfords, low wedges, or some trusty, closed-toe flats. I've found that I absolutely DO NOT enjoy driving in any type of heels over 2 inches. The heels end up rubbing against my car mat and sometimes, if I'm not careful, they have even gotten scuffed! (Ok, and it's also uncomfortable) Yes, I have definitely learned these things the hard way. So, I like to wear my spare pairs whilst driving both to/ from work. Sometimes, I will even wear them all the way until I get to my office building because I have to walk about a block to/from the parking lot. Typically I will change into my heels when I go to court or have to interact with people out of the office. Otherwise, I will be in my spare pairs in the office. Seems simple right?
We fashionistas gotta feel good, but equally as important, look good, right? ;)
Here are some of my current spare pair pairings at the moment, both for work and play.

I promise my next post will be a style post for sure! I haven't had a photographer for awhile and I am not too familiar with the settings on my camera to take quality photos using my tripod. In the meantime, follow me on Instagram: @theShopaholic247 where I post little quickie OOTDs.
How do you deal with tired feet? Do you have a spare pair handy?
