RAGBRAI Heels Update

I am going to do it.  With the help of my husband and one of my teammates I will be wearing heels for one day on RAGBRAI.  They are packed in my bag and in about 3 hours they will be on there way to Sioux Center Iowa to be part of the largest bicycle touring ride in the world.  471 miles and 48 of those miles you find these shoes on my feet.
Since the cage on my pedals are going to be hard on my heels I had to find a pair of heels that would not only work on my pedals but not cost me too much.  I found this Michael Antonio Pump for only $20.  This pump has a 4 1/2 inch heel with a 3/4 inch hidden platform.   A very sexy looking heel at a very economical price.
I will be wearing these pumps on day 6 of RAGBRAI riding from Cedar Rapids to Anamosa.  This is the shortest day and the reason I picked this day to wear these pumps.  You might even see them at the SuperSize Seven concert Friday night in Anamosa.

Red White & Blue 4th

Knowing that the 4th was going to involve a lot of walking on a hot day I wanted to look good, stay cool, and of course wear my high heels.  I found this wedge by Fahrenheit that was perfect for my 4th outfit.  The Mila Wedge by Fahrenheit was perfect for me.  It has a 4 3/4 inch heel with a 1 3/4 inch platform making it a  very comfortable shoe to walk in with a stylish high heel.
This wedge also comes in Blue (which I could have also used on the 4th) and Orange.

I paired my red and white candy striped wedge with a white sateen skirt by Jones New York
a red tank by Anne Klein
and I was all set for my Patriotic 4th of July outing.
