Fashionable and Functional Heels

Fashionable and Functional Heels

Beauty Brite Disclosure

 

We all have those heels; you know the ones that look good but are torturous to wear. I call them my sitting shoes. This doesn’t mean I will give up style just for comfort. Sometimes the search for fashionable and functional heels can feel never-ending until I found Skypro. Now I can have shoes that look and feel good, no matter what I’m doing.

Skypro Wally Funky II

Unless you are a stewardess or work in the airline industry, you may not be familiar with Skypro. I know I wasn’t until I tried their Skypro Wally Funky II. As a leader in the aviation industry, Skypro has been creating fashionable and functional heels, flats, boots and more for 10 years. In celebration of their anniversary, they recently made their shoes more accessible to the general public.

The brand kindly sent me their Wally Funky II to test out. Not only are these heels comfortable and stylish but they are also airport friendly. Manufactured in Portugal, every Skypro shoe features anti-skid and anti-static technology. In other words, you won’t have to worry about slipping, falling or getting “shocked”, especially during the winter.

Additionally, the shoes utilize Ambicork material, which is fully sustainable, lightweight, and resilient. This also helps add more cushioning to the shoes and make them resistant to humidity, mold, and mildew. Speaking of cushioning, my Wally Funky heels feature a microcellular insole designed to be soft, breathable and help absorb ground impact.

In other words, these Skypro heels will not only last a long time, but they also stay stylish and comfortable for years to come.

Styling my fashionable and functional heels

As a shoe lover, I often pick out my shoes and then an outfit to match. I like my shoes to be the focal point of whatever look I’m wearing. When my Skypro heels arrived, I started planning out what outfits would pair perfectly with them.

Since they are fashionable and functional heels, I am able to wear them with dresses, pants, and even jeans. I’ve worn them to a meeting and even to Thanksgiving this year. They were a welcome relief for my poor feet, which decided to swell from standing for way too many hours preparing Thanksgiving dinner. My sister even commented on how much she liked my Skypro heels.

The 2.6-inch heel is the perfect height for comfort and walkability. The rubber sole means I can navigate any sidewalk, flight of stairs, or floor without worrying about slipping or sliding.  And the cushion insole adds comfort to my every step. I can see why they are so popular with those in the airline industry.

I will say they do take some breaking in, like most shoes, especially in the toes. I did get a few blisters the first time I wore them all day. To deal with this, I used a blister blocker stick and/or some athletic tape on my toes the next time I wore them. I find this helps whenever I’m breaking in shoes.

If you’re looking to treat your feet to some fashionable and functional heels, flats, or boots check out Skypro. You can find them for both men and women, in a variety of styles on Amazon, Zappos, Shoes.com and ShoesCentral.

Are You An Over Packer?

Are you an Over Packer?

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I used to travel once a year to Los Angeles to attend the International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS), and each year I always managed to pack more than what I actually needed. I always tell myself, “I may need this.” Spoiler alert, I never do. Because of overweight luggage fees, I’ve always made it a conscious effort to always travel light. I’m talking just my carry on and handbag. Nothing more. Here’s how I do it.

Fitness Gear You Never Knew You Needed

Beauty Brite Disclosure

A few months ago, I returned home from my first press trip for Beauty Brite and was so embarrassed from seeing my pictures that I started doing PiYo, a workout program that combines pilates and yoga! I wanted to slim down and improve my core strength. I love both pilates and yoga and wanted a low impact workout.

Spring Gardening In Stylish Comfort

Spring Gardening in Stylish Comfort - Clarks® Shoes

Spring is here and that means it’s time to dig those gardening supplies out and get to work. It takes a little bit of prep time to clear out the weeds and till winter-settled soil in preparation for planting your favorite fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. My husband and I like to plant tomatoes, a variety of bell peppers, cucumbers (I use these in salads and for pickling), and strawberries (for shortcake desserts and jam, yum). Sometimes we try other stuff like green beans or yellow wax beans, cantaloupe, squash, or different varieties of hot peppers. Whatever tickles our fancy while perusing the local home and garden stores.
