Congrats to Carrie who is eyeing some ballet flats!

Post title runner-up: The One Where I Have a Midlife Shoe Crisis in Front of My Elderly Garage Door (I thought it was too wordy.)

shoemint 2

I don’t know why but I’ve had the urge to dress a bit edgier recently. It’s not so much about following a trend but has everything to do with the desire to try something different. It all started with a new pair of black jeggings. Once I discovered how comfortable and versatile they are, I’ve been wanting to wear them every day. (Luckily, our summer has been relatively mild. I’m one of those people who chills easily at the slightest breeze and in air-conditioned spaces so wearing jeans midsummer is completely reasonable to me.)

My only problem was that I didn’t own a pair of shoes that looked right with black jeans. I have mostly nude and saddle leather sandals for summer. I’m short and one trick I’ve learned to appear taller is to match my shoes to my bare legs / pants. That way my feet, ankles and legs are one continuous line of color which gives the illusion of longer legs. I needed black kicks!

That’s where ShoeMint comes in. The free, members-only website stays on top of what’s hot in the shoe arena so busy moms like me don’t have to. Inventory is updated monthly based on current trends. Whether you’re in need of something classic or runway-esque, you’re guaranteed to find high-end, high quality options. Refined materials – such as leather and suede – abound and shipping & returns are always free.

shoemint 5

I found the perfect black ankle boot for summer. It’s the Dahlia and it’s part of the exclusive collection designed by ShoeMint’s co-founders, Rachel Bilson & Nicole Chavez. The perforated suede allows for plenty of ventilation and gives the boot a sexy peekaboo vibe. Gold buckles round out the edgy look. A modest 2″ heel is enough to give my (lack of) height a boost but easily walkable. I have never in my life owned such provocative shoes. They are surprisingly comfortable and I genuinely LOVE them. Who knew switching up your footwear midlife could be so fun?!

shoemint 3

Another little trick I’ve learned to appear taller is to show some skin up top. (Not to be confused with going topless.) It doesn’t have to be a cleavage fest. Although, if you have it by all means flaunt it and I hate you. Just kidding – about the hate part not the flaunt part. For me, bare shoulders and a swooping neckline do the trick. I’m particularly fond of sleeveless tops with racerback detailing. Pulling my hair up into a high ponytail puts my shoulders front and center and keeps me cool, too.

shoemint 4

I also find it helpful to draw the eye up with a brightly colored / patterned top and an interesting necklace. I prefer flowy, loose-fitting tops that fall below my natural waistline. Ironically, the wood bead necklace I’m wearing here was a purchase from our current home’s estate sale.

In summary, I’m the Jon Stewart of DIY blogs. If you met me in real life, a warranted reaction would be “I thought you’d be taller.” In case you missed ‘em, my tricks for dressing taller:

*Wear shoes similar in color to your bare legs / pants. This creates the illusion of longer legs.

*Get a boost with a little heel action. An additional one or two inches can make all the difference.

*Show some skin up top. (But keep your shirt on, folks.) Bare shoulders or a low-slung neckline visually lengthen short torsos and necks.

*Draw the eye up with interesting colors, patterns and / or jewelry. Keep your bottom half mostly solid in color then add a fun top and necklace to draw attention to your upper half.

And just like that you’re 6′ tall! Haha.

I’m short too and I love your advice for dressing taller! DR. SCHOLL’S THE ALANA sandals would def help me out! I’m also crushing on the red MELISSA JEAN X JASON WU III FLAT… they look like a cross between crocs and those old school jelly shoes, comfortable but unlike crocs and jelly shoes they look chic.

I love the Analeigh!

reply )

09.July.2014

I’ve grown to embrace my 5’4″ (well, almost) frame. I used to wear heals more often, but I stick mostly to flats now. I definitely agree that a nude sandal with shorts or skirt help elongate, but I usually just wear what I feel best in, and I love for my feet to breathe. You look fab (as always) in your black jeggings and booties! Try them with a flat, and I bet you’ll look and feel just as stylish.

reply )

09.July.2014

So hard to choose! I love the Blaire sandal

reply )

09.July.2014

Loving the Alexandra boot (they have fall weekends written all over them) and the Yosi Samra perforated smoking slippers for summer-into-fall work shoes. Can you tell I’m looking forward to cooler weather?

reply )

09.July.2014

ANALEIGH flat, strappy sandals that don’t go between my toes! I’ve been searching for these for a couple years.

I love everything about your outfit. It makes me so happy to see other SAHMs that haven’t given up in the style department.

reply )

09.July.2014

I’m loving the ankle boots you’ve got on. I’ve always perused ShoeMint but never pulled the trigger. It might be time.

It would have to be the Stacey or the Kayra, but I love shoes that are comfy, I can walk in, and are big enough for my feet!

reply )

09.July.2014

I would also love to know the link for your top! So cute!

reply )

replied on July 9th, 2014

What’s the brand? I’ve really been loving a lot of the clothing from Kohl’s recently!

reply )

09.July.2014

Great Look! And yes, one gets the impression you are TALL…..how tall/or should I say short are you actually? I’m 5’2″ and I don’t recall ever looking quite as tall as you do in this picture. I am going to try some of your tips though! Thanks.

reply )

replied on July 9th, 2014

5’4″…on a good day…with shoes on ;)

reply )

replied on July 9th, 2014

5’4″….well that explains it….you ARE TALL…..anyone taller than me seems really tall to me. I would love to have those 2 extra inches…..would probably save me a ton of money on alterations!
LOL Thanks!

I also am a short gal, and I love the shoes you have on. What a clever idea to use a mesh-type fabric on shoes. I thought the Kesha was cute to0 – a 3 3/4-inch heel!! I’d feel like a WNBA player in shoes that high. :)

I agree (being that I am 5-foot-nuthin’) that 5’4″ is tall, ha! I am still blown away that the Tracy Anderson DVD’s helped your body so much…I started 3 weeks ago because you blogged about them. I have never felt more confident or stronger!!! I’d love a new pair of hottie-shoes to go with my new “little, but mean” confidence!!!

I love this outfit as well! It’s amazing how different the shirt looks on their silly/awkward manikin and how much better it looks on you. I wouldn’t have recognized it.
I signed up for shoemint. I really like the Rhiannon boots. I had fun filling out their style quiz as well. I wonder if I can fill it out again in the future if my style starts to change?

First of all, THANK YOU from a short person! Also, another HUGE THANK YOU because I’ve been reading some mommy bloggers who are slut shaming women under the guise of having a “style” post. I really love the way you share your style without telling other people what to do with their own style. Love it love it. Thank you :)

reply )

09.July.2014

At 5′ 0″ I long ago gave up hope of “dressing tall”, instead I dress to make sure I’m not mistaken for a teenager (this actually happens a lot although I’m nearly 30)! My clothes are all quite figure-hugging and I’ve embraced low heels. Nothing will ever make me choose to suffer wearing a heel more than 2 inches high.

10.July.2014

Great tips for us shorties…………..BTW you are no where near midlife…..way to young!

reply )

Love the Karina, Bobbie, and Nigel flats–they’d be great for work from spring through fall…and I always love a good ballet flat or smoking slipper. The Matiko May sandal, though? So cute! Not for work, sadly…
Okay, I’d try the Kaylin, or your boots, the Dahlia.

I really need to be a bit more decisive. Maybe next time.

reply )

10.July.2014

10.July.2014

I really like the leopard print classic pump. I have no dressing/looking taller hints, since I’m already tall (5’10.5″) I try not to draw attention to the fact I’m usually the tallest one on the room with flats haha. Good thing my husband is 6’4″ so I can still wear some big heels :)

I am in the market for a silver/pewter ballet flat. I would totally pick the Yosi Samra Crackled Metallic Ballet Flat. I have the opposite problem as you. I am tall and feel like when I wear heels it makes me tower over people. I prefer flats.

When I went to purchase a pair of shoes on this website, I noticed that buy signing up as a “member” you agree to their Terms of Service stating that every month after your first purchase they will charge your credit card a $29.99 “membership fee” every month. Very cute shoes, but that’s a little shady for my taste. Glad I saw it before I completed my purchase.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention!

I contacted the peeps at ShoeMint about this since I wasn’t aware of any membership fee. Here’s the reply I received:

Basically, when you make your first purchase, you will be scheduled to get charged a flat fee every month. But there is never any obligation to buy, so you can go into your account and choose to “skip the month” before the 5th of every month, free of charge. Even if you forget to skip the month, the charge will be credited to your account for your next purchase. If you only want to make a one time purchase, you can just cancel your membership after the first purchase.

I hope that helps! And THANK YOU for reading the Terms of Service and commenting.

What a great giveaway! I am such a shoe fiend…I am currently lusting over the zandra, faith, the classic pump, the karina, the dahlia, the jillian, the simone, the rhiannon…but the phoebe, the melissa virtue/jason wu smoking slipper might be my favs!

It’s a toss-up between your Dahlias and the Simones….love them both! And I scrolled through to see if you included a link/brand for those jeggings but I don’t see one. I’m always on the hunt for the perfect pair, and yours look amazing! Do you have a source for those??

I’m really digging the Alana wedge. Cute for spring, summer, or fall.

Great tips! I’m super tiny and I definitely am going to use some of these tips. I visited shoe mint and my favorite shoe is Trista, in black. That golden plate in the heel is such a plus!

You look great!! Your arms are really the star.
Also, I love the Melissa Boho Heel. I like when the foot is enclosed, but not quite.

I’m loving the karina flats and the kody oxfords. But I’m sure I could find many more that should live at my house.
Also, thanks for the dressing tall tips. I’m barely 5 feet tall but I just can’t wear heels all the time.

Thanks for thet chance to win! While I liked the shoes recommended to me, I keep coming back to your Dhalias! Love the shoes *you*have on! I adore ankle boots,& perforated ones are genius for summertime. Sorry, I have no advice on how to appear taller.Personally, I’ve always been “the tall girl” since as early as I can remember. I was teased about it during grade school& M.S.,& as a result, equated being feminine with being petite for YEARS! By the end of H.S., I embraced my height,&eventually wore any shoe, no matter the heal. Even if I was taller than men at times!=^_^*=

matiko ursina wedge – I desperately need a casual, comfy black sandal and this one fits the bill.

Loving the new tank top you showed off in your recent post. Mine arrived today and i’m just wondering how many wanna-be look-alikes you now have roaming out there?! :) At first was wondering about how you deal with the bra with the sheer back, but a nude racer back did the trick fairly well.
