Shoe Appropriateness Judging: Do You Do It?

Sometimes I think maybe my footwear is a little too dressy for whatever occasion in which I happen to be partaking.

I really get self-conscious about it. Like, are people staring at me thinking "those shoes are just so inappropriate for this town/event/terrain"? I swear they are. I can hear their thoughts.

And they have a point. Because more often than not, high heels - as gorgeous and visually leg-elongating as they are - have me walking a little too slow at the mall beside my friends (in their ballet flats), or cause me to be annoyingly precarious over sewer grates on any given city sidewalk when I'm out for dinner or window shopping.

And don't even get me started on how much they hurt my feet.

But then I see Beyonce on her yacht with her baby girl in her arms and I think: yeah....maybe I'm more reasonable than I give myself credit for.

I am rarely wearing appropriate footwear and I don't care what anyone thinks. I love my heels.
