So its Monday again, happens about every seven days or so. What makes Mondays even worse now is that its dark out and its cold outside the bed…grrrrrr. So needless to say its time to do a Monday moaning.
If you cannot walk in high heels, perhaps you should practice or not wear them? Do these people realize that aren’t walking pretty? We have all seen them – tipping forward a bit with knees slightly bent or the ones who are semi-balancing themselves with their arms stretched out. Or even better, the tiniest of steps trying to click-clack their way somewhere…or the ones that take 7 minutes to walk down a flight of stairs.

It’s painful to watch but perhaps you should practice a bit? Trust me, people notice! For instance, if I can’t trot in my shoes, I am not wearing them…what if you need to catch up with someone or need to run for your life? Also, my house has the perfect runway hallway to practice from door to door…or while you are still in the store. Don’t be embarrassed – EVERYONE’S DOING IT!
Some star tips:
Start small. If you’ve never walked in high heels before, don’t start out learning with 5 inch stilettos – that’s a recipe for pain and maybe even injury! Try something smaller, like a 2 inch heel or wedge to get used to the feeling. You can always work your way up to your most killer heels.
Walk heel to toe, not toe to heel. While it might be tempting to put your whole foot down at once, don’t do it – it makes your walk look strange when you’re wearing high shoes. Instead, put your heel down first, followed by your toe. This will give you more balance and make your stride look more natural.
Alright, Happy Mondaying to all! I leave you with these parting beauties (orange for Halloween fun):
