I wish I was a little bit taller.... I bought these shoes. I always have a hint of doubt when buying shoes online. I have short wide little feet (my mom affectionately calls them Freddy Flintstone feet- thanks for the complex ma).
Anywho, despite my odd shaped feet I.LOVE.SHOES. all kinds of shoes. 
Tall ones 
skinny ones 
flat ones 
comfy ones
Narrow ones
 memory gel 
No discriminating here. 
So it shouldn't come as a shock I get subscription emails from all the shoe sites despite my apprehensiveness. (Sole society, shoedazzle, justfab to name a few.) And I'm a sucker for a sale. Enter shoemint and 50% off plus 20% off first purchase. I always browse the sales but I didn't bite the bullet until now.
As my feet are short and stout so am I....
Maxi dresses and skirts are my favorite summer staple. They're just so effortlessly chic. It suddenly became so clear to me I needed these shoes in my life. They scream summer boho and are the perfect neutral. 
When they came in I was apprehensive at first. 
And I'm not great in flats never mind adding height. But as I broke them in around the house (final sale- no turning back!) I was surprisingly comfortable. They didn't make my feet ache like other heels and the chunkier heel + platform made for a {sort of} stability. They're slightly long for my foot but the ankle strap keeps me feeling secure. The only real issue i had was with stairs but that's not new for me. I'm generally a baby steps kinda girl. 
I cannot wait for the weather to stay warm so I can wear these a million and one ways. =]

P.s. does anyone else remember this song? I couldn't stop singing the hook as I meandered around the house in these beauties. It resonates with me....
