Designer or Deal ankle strap kitten heels

Designer or Deal: Designer kitten heels / deal kitten heals (built in arch support!) /

There are so many good shoe trends this spring/summer season! One of these trends is the return of the kitten heel. Before you knock it, this is a much more comfortable heel height for walking. Your feet, hips and lower back will appreciate the lower heel height. So, there’s that!

One of the big trends right now is a pointed toe, kitten heel and ankle strap; all together. Several designers have a version of this shoe style, but I prefer the chic and simple version pictured above. If you love this look too, and want to lower your foot pain, this might be a great shoe for you!

If you are designer all the way, here is the designer version for you! If you prefer to keep your money in the bank, and you enjoy some arch support, this version is calling your name. That being said, this designer version is more of a mid-priced shoe and won’t completely break the bank. So, it’s up to you!

Here are a few lower heel height shoes for the spring/summer season to keep your heel height low:

What do you think of this understated shoe trend?

New York City Fire Museum

The official museum for the New York Fire Department is a cute little museum tucked away in SOHO and jam packed with firefighting history. I am so happy we found this museum!

The museum is a multi-story historical time capsule filled with everything from historical events dating back to the beginning of our country, to artifacts spanning centuries of firefighting in New York. There is even a room dedicated to 9-11, which brought tears to my eyes.

In addition to artifacts, there are educational timelines and videos which show events from colonial times as well as more modern catastrophes. We really enjoyed walking through the different floors and exhibits as well as sitting down and watching videos which detailed historical events.

One of the displays which really caught my eyes were these fire grenades. Some of them are made from beautiful glass and they look like fancy perfume bottles! I am stunned that they made such pretty glass bottles which are meant to be thrown into a fire and break in order to help extinguish flames. I feel like if one of these was in my home in the 1800’s I would be half asleep one day and accidently dab it on my skin thinking it was my perfume. haha

The New York City Fire Museum is located at 278 Spring Street in New York, and it is something you should definitely add to your itinerary next time you visit the big apple. There is also a section for kids, so this is an activity the whole family can enjoy. We really enjoyed it!
