Four Favorite Finds

I discovered a miracle in a Nashville hotel, the most genius invention for any gal’s feet, I had to share.  I’ve been carrying these around in my purse for weeks now.  J’adore does not begin to describe.  Have you spied these?  Foldable ballet flats that fit in a pouch. 

I’m a shorty, so I’m always putting on heels when I travel or go out and about.  These little flats have saved my feet time and again, like on airplanes or at last night’s school auction.  You can pick them up for $15 in different colors here.  I’ve even started wearing them around the house instead of my typical bare feet, and to hide my chipping toenail polish.  Stylish.  Metallic.  Genius!
