When choosing shoes I always opt for a pair of heeled boots. I'm not much of a sandal wearer (although I'm in the process of changing that) and flats, to me, are for lazy/sick days.
I had a nasty cold -congestion and all- so I opted for the first pair of flats I could slip my feet into. This particular pair, wasn't my favorite for this outfit, but when you are sick nothing matters but comfort, right?
On the other hand, this shawl was the perfect choice for such day; I'll wear it any time: sick, lazy or well.
