A MOM Fashion DON'T.

Running shorts worn with anything other than sneakers or flip flops.

Unless you’re planning on making a guest appearance on Gossip Girl or 90210… stay away from heels/booties/flats or anything other than a standard pair of running sneakers of flip flops.

Easy, peasy.

    I agree entirely. Unless you’re inside your house trying to break in a new pair of shoes before the weekend. (then it’s forgivable)

    Also – those pink and black spectator heels are stunning!

    oh no! i can just see a mom stuck in the 80’s vacuuming the house in running shorts and pumps. IMO, flip flops aren’t even acceptable. either wear them with sneakers or don’t wear them at all!

    I blame Sex & The City! they had an episode with Carrie wearing track shorts and red high stillettos…

    Unless you are Carrie Bradshaw…it just doesn’t owrk! (come to think of it, it didn’t work for Carrie either!)

    LOL! Love this post, Audrey! 🙂 I would like to say that I have never had the fortune (or misfortune!) of seeing anyone wear heels with shorts…but I’ve seen my MOM do it! I TRIED to tell her it’s a no-no, but she just won’t listen. To make things worse, they were WEDGE sandal type shoes…and she wore SOCKS! Bwahahahaha!! Sorry, Mom! I hope you’re not reading this!!! 😉
