Are you a fashion chameleon?

Lately (really since moving to the city) I've noticed that I've become a fashion chameleon of sorts. Well all know that chameleons adapt to their surroundings by changing colors as a way of camouflage. Just as some people use fashion and dress as a way of standing out, a fashion chameleon uses it as a way to fit in. Its more than just adapting to the seasons or even dressing for different occasions. For me, I noticed that I was following others and adapting my style to fit in with different groups I interacted with to the point where I wonder if I even have a definitive style of my own. Perhaps this is normal, and style should be seen as more of a bricolage many different styles. Some of my own style groups can be seen below.

Intern- Definitely an understated chic filled with flat slip on sandals and denim minis.

Class- Class time was definitely about dressing to impress. Filled with labels (or the very least Zara knockoffs).

Work- Lots of trendy pieces like platform sandals while still complying with the dress code.

How to make your shoes more comfortable

Nothing is worse than having a pair of shoes that love but are a pain to wear. Here are some tips to make your shoes more comfortable so you can walk and stand for as long as you want.

  1. For heels that are super high, your weight is obviously forced to ball of your foot. Some padding in the front of the shoes should provide relief.

  2. If there is a little too much room in the back of your shoes, then add a little but of cushion to the heel.
  3. If the back of the shoe is rubbing against your Achilles, add some cushion to the back to raise your heel.
  4. Another trick for heel is to to tape together your two middle toes. This provides a little extra stability on your feet. You can use a bandaid or medical tape.
  5. To prevent blisters from forming use extra protection all over your feet or where you are most prone to blisters. You can find it wherever you find running gear.

Of course lower heels, wedges, and block heels will give you more stability and comfort. Check out some great comfortable shoes for summer time below!
