My biggest piece of advice to those who visit New York: WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES.

I’m all about impractical shoes that really help make your look stand out (like in this post). Trust me, I am. Let’s look at this outfit, for example.

I could have easily put on these shoes to make the outfit more “blog worthy”. Right? I want to be realistic though – especially when it comes to what I actually wear on weekdays. I chose to pair this look with my new kicks to show just how easily you can switch up a look based on the shoes you wear.

Like I mentioned before, I usually would wear a different shoe – especially when I’m at work (I have three pairs of these shoes under my desk). When I’m commuting to and from my office, I like to wear flats, so when I have to start weavin’ and bobbin’ through tourists, I can do it quickly. This particular pair is perfect for just that. They give you such support while walking, it’s almost like you’re walking with sponges under your feet! I also love that they have the resemblance of this pair, but are a little less expensive! That’s a win in my book.

    Literally, the streets of New York MURDER my feet. I feel like I’m constantly wearing band-aids, trying to break new shoes in, haha. Those look like they’re up to the task, however! Love the look.
