RUNNING IN HEELS

1 Posted by - May 1, 2015 - FASHION

We’re an all-women team and while we share the same work ethic and commitment, we each have a very different personal style. But even on that front, we do have something in common: We love heels! We’re also pretty good at running in them. So step into our shoes.

First up, Jenna McArthur, workaholic and a dress-me-up-rather-than-down kind of girl.

First thing you do when you arrive at the office? I drink coffee. Nothing can be done without a flat white to start the morning.

Heels make me … Confident. When I step into a pair, it’s like putting on my armor. I feel empowered, ready to take on the day and when all else fails, they’re an instant pick-me-up!

My style is… Minimalist, polished, feminine.

These heels have my heart. I wear a lot of denim and camel and the tangerine really pops against these hues. Plus the pointed toes are perfect and make them work chic. The suede is sophisticated and the midi-heel is perfectly on trend.

First thing you do when you get to the office? I’m usually first to arrive and have about 30 minutes before the rest of the team arrives. That’s when I update my to-do lists and check my email and social media while listening to my favourite tunes, cup of tea and chocolate snack in hand.

Heels make me… Feel empowered, like the best version of myself.

My style is… Feminine, contemporary, elegant.

I’ve been searching for the perfect mule ever since spotting a streetstyle photo of Polish model Anja Rubik in a pair at Milan Fashion Week last year. Although hers was black, I love the nude shade of this pair. It’s very versatile, easy to wear with virtually any outfit, winter or summer. The heel and soft leather are incredibly comfortable too – perfect for someone like me who literally runs in heels every day of the week.

Jacqui McArthur, mom of two, runs in heels and can often be heard singing to herself while going about her day.

First thing you do when you get to the office? The voice notes in our team’s Whatsapp group starts before 8am. We do love a voice note at Jenna McArthur PR and use them to outline the day’s plan. They help me to shift gear from mommy mode to PR mode so I’m ready for the day ahead by the time I reach the office. With a little help from the downstairs coffee shop.

Heels make me… feel feminine and sexy. In the words of Manolo Blahnik, ‘You put high heels on and you change.’ My sentiments exactly.

My style is… Borrowed from the boys but not without a feminine touch.

I had to fight Jenna for this pair. We both loved the versatile design and chic snakeskin print. I teamed them with a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans and a tailored coat. These heels, combined with a strong, tailored coat, mean business.

    I love all of these – may the ripped jeans and heels combo never die – but Shalagh’s is just so cute! I generally hate mini skirts, but hers is so pretty, of all the pairs here, the heels she’s wearing are the pair I would be most likely to buy.
