Getting caught barefoot in the rain on the streets of San Francisco is something I hope to never experience again. Yes, this incident occurred a few years ago when I insisted on wearing my favorite silver Prada pumps to a charity event in the City – because you know, no other shoe would have done. Parking was a bear on this particular afternoon, so not only did I have to walk up and down Powell Street in killer heels; the skies opened up, dumping rain and cold all over the streets of the city. When I could not take one more step, off came the heels and I was left walking the city streets barefoot. Later that evening, while aggressively scrubbing the grime and dirt of the city off my feet, I got to thinking there had to be a better way.
Then I remembered, back in my 20’s when I would travel to NYC as a retail buyer for Nordstrom Inc., I always carried a pair of flat shoes in my large tote bag as I ran from appointment to appointment all over the Garment District. I’d run in my flats, then pop on my heels for each appointment in true City Girl Style. After a bit of research on Amazon, I found my solution to cab-to-curb heels in Sidekicks, foldable flats. Available in every color under the sun, I went with black – it works with anything. Fold ’em up in their compact bag and pop them in your clutch. And never be caught walking home or around the city in pain, ever again!
In addition to Sidekicks, I’ve got a solution to keeping your pants up (especially those low rise jeans), a place to stash your phone, key and Peets coffee card while out on a run or walk, how to keep your boots standing up tall in your closet this fall, and a chic reason to get out of your yoga pants for BTS. Looking for more more closet solutions, pop on over to my Friday Favorites on Facebook, where I shared this weeks favorites in a live (shortened) video, all from my own closet, on my Facebook Page (HERE).
