In the age-old debate of heels vs. flats, I am most definitely a flats girl for everyday wear. Heels impart glamour and sassy attitude on the wearer; slip the right pair on and a woman suddenly feels taller, more powerful, alluring, as if she can conquer the world. But even when heels make you feel your most powerful, there's something anti-feminist about them too. They can reduce you to a hobbling mess if worn for too long. You find yourself strategizing how far you'll have to walk and when you can sit down and plan your social schedule around it.
I'm usually very good about putting my shoes back into their boxes after I wear them, but lately my ballet flats and flat sandals have been worn so much that I don't even bother anymore. They're dressy enough for long days at work that stretch into long evenings out on the town. After all, when summer finally arrives in Vancouver, I want to be the adventurous girl who's up for anything, not the girl who has to say no because it's too far to walk.
Which do you prefer to wear more, heels or flats? Does your preference change with the seasons?
