Flats for the Office

Good day, fashionable friends!

Most of you get up every morning, don your work-wear essentials, and step out the door to face the day in some version of an office environment. What’s the best thing about working in an office? You guessed it – dressing up a bit.

I often think about my office wardrobe and picture my well pressed pencil skirt paired with a nice nude pump. Sometimes I consider my wide-leg trousers and swoon over the mental image of them accompanied by an adorable platform. Recently though I’ve taken a keen interest in French fashion and I’ve noticed a surprising trend – flats. French women seem to pair flats with everything and it always looks FABULOUS!

Being “vertically challenged”, flats used to give me a great deal of anxiety. I always felt like the executives of my professional halls towered over me; however, inspired by the French, I have recently overcome my fear of being a bit stumpy and I’ve never been happier!

So, friends, let’s take a cue from those fabulous French ladies and appreciate the versatile, stylish flat.

Fashionably yours,
