I'm about to confess the silliest thing ever, but first I have to share my bad ass traveling outfit. I'm currently in Sedona for the week and will be attending (and presenting at!) a state wide behavioral health conference. Not only am I happy to be back in northern Arizona, but I'm thrilled that this week my job entails classes on my favorite subjects. I'm a knowledge junkie. It's right up my alley.

My confession: I've always thought I was too fat to wear strappy sandals. I now think it's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard, but my entire life I've been convinced that having straps around or near my ankles would somehow make them look fatter than they already are, or make me look shorter and squatter than normal. Does anyone else identify with this?

Too bad, so sad old Jes... yesterday I fed the Target store all my dollars and purchased two strappy-as-all-get-out pairs (and some dresses too!) and they look GREAT. The (ultra comfy) dress is this guy, and you can purchase these shoes here. I would recommend swapping them out when driving, but wearing them 24/7 otherwise. Also: I know I'm late to the game, but I'm now really into platform wedges. And by really into I mean obsessed with.

Do you have any utterly stupid "don'ts" that you've lived by? Are you gonna toss 'em and say fuck it? Share away!
