Fear of falling?

"I have this fear of falling in front of large groups of people. That's why I tend not to wear heels. "

Taylor Swift 


I've got to say I can sympathise with Taylor on the falling in heels fear, being uncoordinated can easily cause that.
 Recently I have become more interested in stocking up on the trusty flat.
Part fear (I guess), part comfort, and partly because I've been seeing great tumblr
posts of flat wearers like Taylor Swift and Olivia Palermo.

Ellen and I went to a shoe importer sale and came back with a mini haul (all flats)
and today I wore these crème Oxfords with a Taylor Swift inspired outfit.
Luckily there was still some light in the paddock near our house,
 so Ellen quickly snapped some nice photos of the outfit.

bag, tail, glasses - thrift stores
dress - Valley Girl
cardigan - Cotton On
shoes - Clarks

I've actually worn this same outfit a couple of times this week to various things 
when I couldn't think of anything else to wear.
It's been great for the different events and weather changes that frequent Auckland.
I think I'm falling for the flat again (but I'm still a sucker for a good heel, at least for now)

  31. While I love a good stilettos, sometimes a flat just feels more appropriate! (Like in the middle of winter when I'm walking into the office from the icy parking lot!)

    Love the outfit!
