The kind folks at Everlane sent me a pair of their newest shoes to try out, the “Day Glove” flats. They’re available starting today, and in several colors. I like the look of ballet flats but often don’t find them comfortable or secure on my feet. These are both. There’s a surprising amount of padding in the sole, and the leather really is glove-soft. I think they have a very Audrey-esque vibe. While these flats wouldn’t be supportive enough for for me for travel shoes, they are great for a day of walking dogs and running errands. They run true to size. They’re a true black; the leather is smooth and a little glossy.
I’ve also been eyeing these Editor Slingback Flats, which have a polished look sans heels. Slingbacks are a nice alternative to mules: still a more open look but with the added stability of a back strap. These would look great with pants or skirts.
A Dietary Reset…
I’ve been feeling constantly “nosh-y” lately and have fallen into some bad snacking habits. So I’m putting myself back on a low-carb regime, which usually seems to curb the worst of it. I’ve always had a tendency to gain weight easily, and carbs just seem to make me hungrier. I’ve been up a couple of pounds over my preferred range for the last year or so, and would love to get back in my comfort zone.
One thing I have come to terms with is that I will never be angular and willowy, no matter how much weight I lose. So I’ve quit setting unrealistic goals for myself. I aim to maintain my weight in a range that’s healthy and achievable without draconian measures. I want to be able to enjoy life, and that includes good food.
So that’s how I’m kicking off my week…how about you?
