#over40 Casual Friday look | High Latitude Style | http://www.highlatitudestyle.com
Denim shirt with linen pants, Moschino belt, pearls, Anne Klein nude slingbacks, and Kate Moss for Longchamp bag (all own)

This weekend look features linen pants, a denim push button shirt, and nude slingbacks. I dressed them up with a red MOSHINO belt, a string of pearls, and a Kate Moss for Longchamp bag. The linen pants have a short zipper on the outside side of the leg. I really like hardware to highlight my ankles. The nude heels are similar in color as the linen pants which elongates the legs. I wore this outfit for running errands around town. It is comfy, but looks polished.

How can I say that heels are comfy? I am wearing heels since I was 14. On a Saturday my parents went shopping with us kids to update/replace our fall wardrobes. I picked a pair of 3 inch (7.5cm) high caramel brown wedges. My mom disagreed with them, but my dad liked them. He said that I could have them. My mom brought up that I have to walk 20 minutes from and to the school bus stop every morning and afternoon. The shoes would be a torture and impractical. My dad said that that would be my problem not hers and I would have to deal with it as I would not get another pair this winter. Thus, I got them and never regretted it.

I am very thankful to him for intervening and helping me to get those shoes back then. I learned early on in life the skill to walk in high heels. Even my sport shoes have high heels as I am a ballroom dancer.
