Yes, Please: Flats

There’s a lot of things I never thought I’d say since I started blogging. One being, ‘I like those overalls’ and two ‘oh, just dye the ends of my hair’ but one thing that I never ever thought I’d say is yes, please to flat shoes. This coming from a girl who has worn heels since I was allowed to. (I’m looking at you, 1999 platform flip flops.) But with days spent in the shop or on the road, I look a lot to flats to help me get through the day. (Wedges are a great alternative too for heels. But that’s another post.) 
When I was searching for a solid everyday pair, I decided on a d’Orsay style. It’s classic and adds a bit of tailor or structure to any outfit. For me when I wear flats there is always a disconnect for me to feel put together. But I’ve realized that you’ve just got to find the right flat. Pointed toe flats help bring a tailored look, while a colorful pair with bring a nice pop to any outfit. And of course you can’t go wrong with a classic ballet flat. (The Yosi Samara ones I linked above are similar to the pair I took to Europe with me last spring and basically wore them out because they were so comfortable.)

Oh and yes of course I linked a pair of  dog flats because….why the hell not? Am I a full grown woman with a love for animal themed clothing? Yes, yes I am.

What about you? Your thoughts on flats — love them, hate them or a not-so-evil necessity?

    yes to flats. have you tried tieks? they’re a pretty penny so i have not pulled the trigger… yet. in the meantime, i’ve been wearing these at $20/pop. they are so comfortable, i have forsaken all other shoes in favor of them.

    I struggle feeling polished with flats, still trying to find the right balance but I really like the extra elastic on the Yosi Samra Samara (say that 3x fast), they just might work. Wedges are a savior cause heels are for occasions in my life, i just can’t on the everyday.

    I’m 5’9″ and live in Boston where owning a car is impossible, so I end up walking several miles each day. I keep some nice heels for special occasions, but I pretty much live in flats!

    I think I may be in love with all of these. Flats are life for a teacher. I can do heels once or twice a week, but that’s it.

    Yes to the doggy ones! In general, I’m quite a flat fan, have so many pairs and even though my imaginary self is always in stilettos, my reality is mostly in heels just because it’s way more comfortable

    True story- I pitched a fit when my mom insisted that I wear heals to my junior cotillion dance. Flats only for this kid. 🙂 Skinnies and flats (with a nice button up) are more or less my uniform nowadays- I love love love this roundup! JCrew also tends to have really amazing (albeit a bit pricey) flats. Really fun colors and patterns, and the quality is decent. I have been debating about those Yosi Samra flats- if they are as comfortable as promised I may need to give them a whirl.

  20. I’m all about the pointed toe/d’orsay style. I think classic ballet flats look too basic on me. I need a bit more structure and something interesting! I picked up a pair of tan perforated d’Orsay flats from gap and I am obsessed with them!

    I love flats (and heels) and in particular Pretty Ballerina’s ballerinas, as they come in size 42/huge. Chloe and MBMJ’s flats have always been on my wishlist, but they are simply too small for me. Buhu! I’d love a good pair of D’Orsay flats, though, so if a suitable pair come my way I’ll snap them up immediately. The cutout and pointy toe make them so chic.
