{Fashion Monday} Embrace the Heels

Embrace the heels! Hmmm, really? Yes really and why because heels adds to your already existing sexiness. But not all of us like wearing heels so how can one learn to embrace the heels? Well simples, just wear block heels and you’re sorted. Honestly that’s it, because most of us think heels, stilettos to be exact are the only slim death contraptions that some man designed to screw us over.

No! those are not the only heels that can (1) stand out (2) make your look even more sexy and (3) the only ones that can be considered as heels.

 

Embrace the heels

When I was at university, a little over 3 years ago now, I never wore anything less than 4 inch heels when going out. I love(d) my heels and I wasn’t going to compromise. Fast forward to today and I feel like my death contraptions are plotting to kill me because even the thought of wearing heels make me mentally tired so I stopped wearing them. That’s until my mum reminded me stilettos heels are not the only heels one can wear. I went home, check my closet and found I have a few block heels that I never even worn.


Embrace the Heels. 

There is no time like the present to start something new, so yesterday I decided to go to Swindon for church and thought what better way to start retraining myself to embrace the heels than to wear them to church and then to lunch/shopping in Oxford with my sister. I won’t lie and say they didn’t start to hurt after 4 hours because they did but if I think about it, I spent over 4 hours wearing heels. That’s an achievement on its own and I am glad I have started to slowly embrace the heels and hope to continue.

I paired my block heels with ripped jeans and simple top and had minimal jewellery as it’s summer and I don’t like to overdo it.

Ladies, how do you feel about wearing heels? Are you up to try and embrace the heels? When was the last time you wore heels?

    I loved heels when I was in my 20’s. Now, I like comfy shoes 🙂

    • I am in my late 20’s and loving it even more

  • I have been clearing my wardrobe today and packed up a few stilettoes that I don’t enjoy wearing anymore. I love to wear heels and never thought about block heels before so will have to investigate. I have been looking for an excuse to go shopping for a while 🙂

    • Ask and you shall be answered lol, enjoy your shopping

  • Block heels were the best invention! They’re so much more comfortable and way easier to walk in 🙂

    • So true, they are my new besties

  • I love heels so much, block heels especially, but I can’t wear them any more (doctors orders) I still love window shopping for them though 🙂 x

    • Awww bless you hun, but you’ve got to obey the doctor 🙂

  • I love the look of heels but I never wear them – so used to flats and I am super tall as it is!

    • Aah bless, you’re never too tall for heels lol

  • Robin Rue

    I have not been much of a heels person even when I was younger. These look so cute though! If only I could convince myself.

    • Awww bless, I think you should start small then work your way up lol

  • Eeek I don’t think you are ever going to convince me. Every pair I have ever put on have been excruciating within a few steps – like bleeding feet painful. I can’t walk in them, I fall over, I feel self-conscious. I really hate even a slight heel! I think the last time I wore a pair was bout 8 years ago before I was married and they were off my feet within minutes of getting where I was going! Some do look very pretty, but they’re just too painful for me!

    • Awww bless you Hun, I won’t even try to convince you lol if it is as painful as you say

  • I absolutely love high heels, but find as I have got older they just cripple me 🙁 I have to stick to my flats for now x

  • I hated heels for years because I found them so uncomfortable. Then I had to buy a pair for a formal event and bought a pair that was actually comfortable! I really didn’t realize that some are SIGNIFICANTLY more comfortable than others. I still only wear them for formal occasions but it was a really eye opening revelation.

    • I was like that too before where I thought they were all painful until I tried wedges and blocked heels and I realised I could still rock the heels

  • Girl something comfortable is great nothing too high:). If it is dancing or walking heck no, I like to enjoy those momentos. NO pain no gain is gone.hehe

  • Girl, I like wearing heels now and then to looks sexy. But if I am going to have a long walk or a bit of dancing I will wear something comfortable cause I love to walk and dance and I do overdo both. a nice comfortable high shoes does wonders.

    • oh i am with you on that, I am all about comfort and if my heels are not comfortable then no use wearing them but block heels are comfortable for me.

  • Oh gosh, the closest thing I get to wearing heels is when I wear my 4-inch high wedged sandals. I can’t stand for hours on heels as I get backaches and leg aches after. Good luck on your retraining.

    • Thank you, any heels you wear that makes you happy is enough

  • Nicole Escat

    I love wearing heels, the highest that I have is 5-inches heels. I think it is so important to choose comfortable heels.

    • I couldn’t agree more, it’s best to wear comfortable heels

  • Wow! Those heels are HIGH! I’m not sure I could walk in those.

    • Hahaha, with patience and practice you can Hun

  • I used to love wearing heels then I had kids…lol When I fell pregnant I became so comfortable in flats that now I have no idea how to walk in heels again. Need to practice at home.

    • I become comfortable at my point with flats that it took some time before I got back into heels

  • Love this – I am heels crazy but I just can’t keep up with the kids and wear them so I tend to stick to flats 🙁

    • Yeah it’s easier to wear flats where kids are involved

  • I used to wear heels on a regular basis, I would have felt lost without them. But now as I get older and I don’t work outside of the home, I rarely wear them anymore. It is hard to get back in the saddle once you’ve not worn them for awhile!

    • It is so hard to get back wearing heels after a while hence why I started with medium size then moved to block heels

  • Honestly, I’m the world’s laziest dresser, but sometimes the feeling when I slip on a pair of heels makes me reconsider my stance… Also, they say women in business often feel more confident in heels. Despite the bunions…

    • Aaah the bunions are something else lol

  • I love heels! I recently walked 7 hours in a pair of 6 inch heels because I thought I could handle it. Lol, I definitely couldn’t.

    • 😂😂😂😂 feeling your pain girl, so far 4-5 is my longest then back to flats

  • Helen Clark

    I love heels and have an embarrassing large collection of them in my wardrobe. Since hip surgery I can’t wear them any more though *sobs*

    • Awww bless you, what a shame

  • I only ever wear heels if I’m going to a wedding and about mid-way through I just take them off LOL But I do agree that heels have that classiness to them to change any look into something with a little more pizzazz. Even if you’re wearing jeans and a tee with a necklace, you can dress it up with some heels and you have a really nice outfit together!

    • So true, you can definitely dress use some jeans and tee with a nice pair of heels

  • Kathy

    I actually don’t wear heels. I do love them though, I just don’t wear them. I’m not very good at walking around in them haha. I need to practice more with them.

  • I have always loved the way I feel in a nice pair of heels but unfortunately they have gotten harder and harder for me to walk in. I just can’t seem to keep my balance but on those days when I can, I love rocking a high heeled boot.

    • I love a nice pair of heels

  • Some of these heels are gorgeous, but I just can’t walk in them haha

  • I very rarely wear heels these days, sometimes I’ll wear them for a night out but I soon regret it 😉 I’d rather stylish comfort than aching feet these days!

    • I know the feeling hence why I wear block heels that other painful heels

  • I very rarely wear heels, my co-ordination isn’t good enough! But when I do it has to be a good chunky block heel like these 🙂

    • Chunky block heels are my saviours right now

  • I love heels and they love me! I get a real wiggle on when I wear them!

    • I can definitely understand and relate

  • I used to wear heels all the time and then I broke my leg badly 6 years ago (not a heel related incident) it’s still dodgy to this day so I get really scared about them, even though I love the look of them and own so many pairs! I do wear wedges quite a lot though and own some lovely pairs as I feel more secure in them xx

    • Oh my goodness, sorry to heel that and glad you sticking to wedges. I wouldn’t risk it either

  • I used to love heels, but since having the kiddies, i’m more of a ballerina pump kind of woman or my cons hehe!
    Maybe I will try them out again soon 🙂

    • With kids it’s not always easy to embrace the heels but a date night or special event might call for some

  • I would love the embrace the heels, but pregnancy is slowing me down. It’s bare feet for me at the moment.

    • Awe bless you, it’s better to during pregnancy I think

  • Nikki Wayne

    I like wearing heels and I find high-heeled wedges comfortable and stylish too! A good pair of heels is a must-have!

    • A good pair is a must indeed

  • Elizabeth O.

    I don’t wear heels often, but I do love wearing them whenever I can. It’s good to have a couple of pairs in case you’re in the mood to wear heels. Good job on embracing the heels, girl!

    • Thanks Elizabeth and I agree, it’s nice to have a couple around for when you feeling it

  • Dee

    I am totally in love with the idea of a straight leg jean and some sexy heels. I just can’t wear heels like I use to, but you can turn some major heads if you have a confident walk with it.

    • That you can do Dee, I am loving wearing heels again and turning heads is becoming fun once again

  • I cannot wear stilettos. My ankles are too weak to support my body. It’s sad because I need the height being only five feet tall. However, I can wear some block heels. I hope these are ones I can wear!

    • You should definitely wear the block heels then if you like high heels but not sure what to wear

  • I do believe the confidence that heels can bring but I am not into it until now. I love looking at them but seems they don’t want me to wear them. Haha. I am more in wedges. 🙂

    • I think if wedges are your thing then stick to them and love them even more

  • There can definitely be a trade off between style and comfort when you go with heels. I like those block heels! Definitely a good alternative to stilettos.

    • Thanks Liz and so true they can be a happy medium

  • I am so bad with wearing heels they have to be super chunky for me and generally look more like boots, and even then I can’t wear them for long periods x

    • I used to be bad at them but I am getting back my strides

  • Honestly, this post couldnt have come at a better time!
    I LOVE block heels, and am desperately trying to find some suitable for my wedding shoes! ^_^

    • I am glad to have made the perfect timing, good luck finding some lovely heels and enjoy the wedding

  • It really depends where I’m going, but I do wear heels with my jeans sometimes. I like the way the make my legs look and how they add something extra special to my outfit. I’m loving those booties you selected.

    • Thanks Cindy and yes I love the extra hmmf heels add to an outfit

  • I love how thick those heels are!!! The purses are super cute but I am in love with those shades!! I love how summer time has allowed me to justify having so many different pairs of sunglasses, though my husband may not agree with me.

    • 😂😂😂 I think you can never have too many lol
      Thanks

  • Gone are the days of me wesring heels, much more comfy and practical is some nice dolly shoes x

    • That is true, I am building a collection of comfy flats but embracing the heels as well

  • Well done girl – four hours is pretty good going haha! I used to be able to party all night in heels but now I think I’m just too old for it haha!

    • Thanks Sam, I know the feeling I do feel old partying and wearing heels at night lol but now I am back at wearing heels partying maybe not yet

  • I love heels and wear them everyday, block heels and platforms are pretty comfortable. I like the bag in the picture.

    • Thanks Ana and yes block heels are comfortable

  • Yesterday. I wear heels almost every time I go out.

  • Before I had my little two I always wore heels and had hundreds of pairs. I have found now that I am a mum and running around after little ones I just never wear them and find it hard to walk in them now, I do love them though so I am hoping when my children are older I can wear them again x

    • That’s tends to happen a lot and it’s a naturally progression my dear. Keep them for date nights out

  • I am SO SUCKY at heels but I try ’em anyway, cause they give me a little extra sass (and height, which I am in severe need of!

    Milly | Mini Adventures

    • 😂😂😂 don’t we all want some more sass 😊

  • Before I had children I lived in heels and had trouble wearing them all da and night. Now I just don’t get the chance to wear them and my feet are not used to it anymore.

    • I think once you give them up its harder to go back into them that when you’re first trying them out

  • Heels always look great, but as a guy I don’t know how anyone can walk in them!

    • 😂😂😂 with great difficulty but with a passion for them

  • I am like an elephant on rollerskates in heels, I just cannot walk in them x

    • 😂😂😂 Rachel I try picturing that and it just made me chuckle I am sure you can manage some heels lol

  • I am so bad in heels, but I can rock a wedge heel, thank heavens.

  • I don’t usually wear heels that often but when I do I love to wear wedges or block heels as they much easier to walk in.

    • I know right, block heels and wedges are easier to walk in

  • I love heels, but wear wedges the most as I always seem to fall over in kitten heels!

    • Aww bless, I love wedges too but they always seem to be too high for me compared to block heels

  • I love heels, block, platform, stilettos. I feel I need a heel for everything, from the car to the chair heels aka sitting pretty, dancing shoes etc LOL but block heels are a God send x

    • Hahahaha, I love that. Heels for everything
      Block heels are God sent indeed

  • I love heels but sadly they dont love me lol. I walk like bambi in them so usually i end up wearing flats when i go out. 🙂

    • 😂😂😂 girl you cracked me up. I remember bambi lol I was like that too but wearing block heels is helping change that
