    Easy-to-Wear Slinckback Heels

    Slingback pumps are an excellent choice for working women who want comfortable heels.  Low to medium heels offer extra comfort while leaving the back of the foot visible and free of blisters.  A pair of chic slingbacks look great with just about anything from trousers and skirts to jeans.  Below are walkable slingbacks (from left to right, top to bottom).  The Missoni pumps are not to be missed ~ now available at more than 50% off at $200 $488!

    Got Solemates?

    Do you own or maybe you’ve heard of the High Heeler heel protectors by Solemates?  They recently became my wardrobe essential.

    heel caps

    In the past, I unwillingly chose not to wear a few pairs of my favorite heels (expensive ones) in fear of ruining them from general wear & tear.  I hesitated even more after attending an outdoor wedding a couple years back where I ruined a good pair of suede pumps from walking around in a grassy field.  By the end, the heels were such a mess, covered in dirt where my heels sunk into the soil. Sound familiar?

    While searching for ways to protect shoes from outdoor abuse, I came across this site called The Solemates.  It’s a simple yet best solution to all my ‘heel’ problems!  These heel protectors (covers or caps) offered by Solemates serve two main purposes ~ prevention (from falling/sinking) & protection (from damages).

    Which means no more getting stuck in cement grooves, falling into small cracks or sinking into grass.  I’m putting all my weight down and was able to stand firmly on grass (above) without sinking in.

    There are 4 colors in clear, black, silver and gold.  I recommend getting at least the clear & black colors.  I use the black ones on black pairs and clear ones on all my other colored heels.  Just put them on wherever you go from the office to your favorite dinner spot ~ give your coveted shoes added longevity!  I love the look of the black pair on black pumps.

    Available in 3 sizes.  Each fits snug and comfortably while adding a bit of stability as well.  Here are ways to benefit from the heel covers:

    • Prevents high heels from sinking into grass
    • Prevents damage to antique floors and woven carpets
    • Protects on cobblestones, bricks, grates and wooden decks
    • Preserve shoes
    • Perfect for weddings, outdoor events and everyday use including work
    • Reusable

    Aside from heel protectors, Solemates also offer other products such as foot & heel cushions, anti-skid pads,.. etc.  There are also these SOS kits as well, Wedding Rescue Kit & Shoe Rescue Kit ~ they include all the nitty gritty essentials for weddings & unexpected emergencies.  I would have been much better prepared for the wedding if I had this kit back then.

    I hope these Solemates products will be as useful to you as they have been for me.  You can buy them directly from the site or other retailers like Nordstrom or David’s Bridal.

    Sporty-Chic

    women's slip on sneakers

    It is no longer a requirement to wear dressy shoes with your trousers.  That does not mean you shouldn’t wear a pair of sleek pumps, but just feel free to switch things up from time to time with unexpected kicks such as these canvas slip-ons (also available here).  Luxe python-print updates a casual canvas shoe as a great alternative to typical sneakers.  An easy slip-on style is also perfect for airport security lines.  Wear it with a stripe tee and summery jeans.
