Okay, never mind that there’s snow up to my knees out there on the streets of NYC right now. After the second biggest blizzard to hit the city this weekend, I foresee snow boots in my future, but as soon as it all melts—or like I wore today after I got inside and stripped off my snow boots—gals like me are going to be living in this shoe trend.

The new shoe style you will want is not only a comfy alternative to your heels and even your flats, but they’re more flattering and polish any outfit. Some may call them “grandma heels,” but they’re more affectionately known as low block heels.

While I admire the cutesy fashion girls a la Taylor Swift who can rock a flat, it’s just not me. On the other spectrum, I can’t wear stilettos in my lifestyle and job. These heels are practical, but are a fun way to elevate even a casual pair of girlfriend jeans. Speaking of which, I can’t believe I actually bought a pair of Levi’s 501’s, which I owned maybe 20 years ago. What comes around, goes around in fashion, so if you can’t go shopping in your mom or grandma’s closet, you’re going to love some of these picks below.

photos by Josh Boccheciamp & Brendan Pike shot at Sandals Grande St. Lucian

As if staying at the Sandals Regency Le Toc resort for a few days last month wasn’t paradise enough, our video shoot took us to stay a few miles away on St. Lucia at the sister resort, Sandals Grande St. Lucian. It was like double the paradise.

The first resort was incredibly romantic, quiet, charming and we were treated like royalty. I would recommend it to anyone that doesn’t normally opt to stay at all-inclusive resorts and wants an intimate, unique experience.

This resort, however, was like it’s name, grand(e). It seemed opulent and endless. To get to their new award-winning (and this blogger-approved!) Indian restaurant, Bombay, I had to actually stop and ask for directions on my way—twice. Aside from its impressive size and delicious food, the highlights of the resort for me was definitely the beach itself. The water sports, like paddle boarding and even lying in a hammock in the ocean were my favorite parts, not to mention the romantic dinner they set up on the beach for us for the shoot, and then the hubby and I actually got to enjoy after the shot. Okay, it’s super cheesy, but c’mon, how amazing is that?

If I were to return to the island (which I hope to do; and for pleasure and not just for work), I would probably stay at Le Toc and hop on one of the included shuttles during the days to enjoy the beach and pool here. I guess it helped that I stayed in the room we shot some of the promos in at Le Toc, which was the “Water’s Edge Two-Story One Bedroom Butler Suite,” which made us feel like celebs…though having cameras following us, while we were impeccably styled the entire time we stayed at both resorts probably helped too.
