Wedge Shoes / Sandals from Zara

I’m always comfortable wearing flat shoes over heels. However, there are times that I need to wear heels and even wedge shoes to pair with whatever outfit that I will wear for the day of for a particular occasion. Every woman should really have high heeled shoes in her closet. These days, I like to wear wedge shoes for it can add some height on me. Being a flat 5′ tall petite lady, I need to have some height as well and I can only achieve that by wearing shoes with heels or wedge.

Hip and Fashionable Rainboots that are Ready for the Rain

This rainy season is making me crazy! The non-stop rain coupled with floods are keeping me confined at home most of the times. Rainy days are gloomy and sometimes depressing for many but it’s also a great time to stay at the house to rest, read your fave book, sip a warm chocolate or coffee, play Candy Crush, update your blog, sleep, or even think about what to wear the next day.

Some fashionistas are unstoppable even if it’s raining and muddy outside. I believe some are even excited to go out so that they can show off their new coat and fashionable rainboots with different colors and patterns. It’s also practical to wear plastic sandals/shoes and rainboots because they are waterproof and can easily be washed with water. I’m sure you don’t want your pumps or fave shoes drained in flood waters or mud.
