High heels make a gal feel great

This morning I was catching up my reading – it could consume my entire day if I let it – and took a much needed detour from work related topics to something FUN.  Jo-Lynne’s post about end of summer / fall fashion got me thinking about how much I like to wear high heels, but don’t.  As a “work from home / stay at home / work for myself at the office outside the home” mom my wardrobe is *VERY* casual.  I have three main modes of dress – meeting clients, casual work, and cat vomit.  I tend to hover around casual work, which means a nearly stain free tee, capri jeans, and flip flops.  You don’t even want to know what the cat vomit days look like…

After reading Jo-Lynne’s post, and thinking back to the times I’ve met her in person – she always looks amazing.  She has one more kid than I do, and seems much more put together in home and fashion than I am.  After thinking about it, I realized I need to wear high heels more.  Casually.  Usually heels are reserved for the meeting client days, because besides being professional, they make me feel more ‘grown up’ as if being nearly 40 didn’t already.  I’m getting better with makeup, but not my hair (the fact that it falls out in huge nasty clumps isn’t exactly inspiring to take the time to style it).

So if I can add this one little thing – wearing heels on a casual basis – to my life it may just give me a bit of a confidence boost.  Maybe it’s the small simple things in life that make all the difference…
