H is for... High Heels

High heels.  

I wish I could love you. Strike that. 

I do love you. 

I just don't love the way you make me stumble around like a drunk person even when I'm stone cold sober. 

I love the way you make me look (aside from the stumbling and tottering around), and I love how cute a pair of you can be. 

I do not love how I can never fully get used to walking in you. 

I do not love that Joe makes fun of me when we are out and I'm wearing you and tottering like a toddler. 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up on you just yet. 

I do love my modest heels from Cole Haan that I can actually walk in with poise and grace, I just wish all of you were like that pair. 

Being a young professional I know it's not necessarily appropriate for me to wear sneakers every day, even though I would love to! And yes, I can wear flats and be dressy, but there's still something about you. 

While you often make me feel like a klutz, I still aspire to one day be able to wear you without having to slow step or damn near trip over my own feet! 

**This post is for the April A to Z Challenge!


  1. Heels are impressive in more ways than one.

  2. Hi! I'm visiting from AtoZ and saw via Damyanti's blog ( that your H is also for High Heels, which is mine too :)

    I wish I could strut around in 5-in heels but I can only bear them for an hour and that's it. Good luck for April!

  3. I love heels. I do totter and stumble if I get very much above 2 inches, though.

    I would love to be one of those ladies who walk and run and do all sorts of things in heels. But I think I need more practice first...
