Maybe it's because I'm a mom, or because I work from home, but I find myself reaching for flat shoes more often than not these days. I'm starting to rethink the pieces I want to invest in, rather than the sexy stiletto I wear a few times a year - I'm now planning to buy high quality flat shoes that I can really get my money's worth out of.
