10 ways: Black heels

Black heels are an absolute staple in every girl’s wardrobe.
But here in London, I realize that there’s an “impracticality” attached to any shoe above the one inch height. I know they’re not great for walking around for miles, but these Kendall +Kylie black shoes are incredibly comfortable and you can wear it with practically anything.

My inspiration came from a visit. Our friend came over one day and saw the black heels on my shoe rack. She went on to rant for over an hour about how she can never walk in them, and even if she could she wouldn’t have anything to wear with such “trendy” shoes.

“I only buy shoes that match everything. I’m practical.”

A light bulb went off in my head.  I said, “You know what, I can come up with 10 ways to wear these shoes.”

So, here we are.

The single earring style has always been my go-to for a quick, fun look. I usually buy dramatic earrings, and just wear one for the effect, this way if I lose one I still have one. 😉

Earring: Asos

Sunnies: Perverse Sunglasses

LOOK 3- to lunch

High-waisted skirts and a crop top can accentuate and lengthen legs.

Any outfit that is completely machine-washable is my coffee outfit; I am horribly clumsy with drinks. 😉

Bracelet: Alex & Ani
