Put your best foot forward!

They say it’s important to always put your best foot forward.

I couldn’t agree more.

It’s important to always do the best that you can do. To lead from your heart, from compassion, and from honesty and authenticity. To make a good impression by being the best version of yourself possible.

But you know what also can be important? Actually putting your best foot forward by wearing good shoes.

They say you can judge  a person by their shoes. Whether you know it or not, people look at your feet. And what they see determines a host of things. We’ve all seen that women wearing 6 inch heels who can barely walk and just thought “WHAT IS SHE THINKING!?!” (Come on, you know you’ve done that…) And socks with sandals? That’s a frightening site from tourists in the Florida wintertime.

But we also, literally, need to walk miles in our shoes. And I definitely don’t want to try walking a mile in someone ELSE’S shoes if they look ugly and uncomfortable. I get blisters from marathons, not from my shoes. But I *do* believe that it’s good for our feet to look cute. Because wearing fashionable shoes just makes me smile. You see your feet every day, why not look down and get an instant pick-me-up in the form of cute shoes?

And, thus, I have fallen in love with Juil shoes.  You may have read previously that I am now a Juil ambassador. And I’m completely obsessed. Especially with their new ballet flats!!! Ballet flats are perfect for the busy yogi-woman and runner on the go! Comfortable, practical, and CUTE!!!

Check them out:

Here’s what the earthing dots at the bottom of the shoe look like:HawaFlatBottom

What’s with the dots? What is earthing? Check out my earlier blog post on the topic here.

You know you want another view of these shoes!!!

Juil Hawa Ballet Flats Black

I’m obsessed! They are so comfortable I feel like I am barefoot, and yet they are sturdy enough to withstand hours of fast walking on the streets of Manhattan! Trust me, I’ve tried!

These shoes are made for walking! And exploring, dancing, and just generally living life to the fullest!

I’m in love!

Here I’ve paired them with a sweatshirt cardigan “glad rag wrap” from NESH NYC and their amazing peek-a-boo leggings! 🙂

    I use to be one of those women that shoved her feet in crazy tall heels. Now that I stopped my feet love me and they look pretty too. 🙂 I think we should be kind to our feet. I don’t currently own Juil shoes {the ones you’re wearing are beautiful}, but i believe I need to change that after reading your blog. P. s. Thank you for the discount code!
