The sun has finally decided to show its face and I could not be happier about it. I mean look at that girl jumping in the streets. Now that is happy. Plus I got to give my new dress a spin since I could get away with bare legs. So I’ve discovered a new love for flats lately. Is this 30? Probably. But I read some sage advice on Cupcakes and Cashmere about when to wear heels and when to wear flats, according to French women and loved the idea. On her post a reader said that they (the French) wear flats when a skirt is above the knee and heels when it is below the knee. I’ve decided to try this look out lately and actually really like this rule. In fact, I’d been eyeing a pair of d’Orsay flats because they have the structure I love of a heel but they are easier to wear everyday and throughout the day, especially long days at the shop. They were a bit of a splurge but I’ve worn them so many times since purchasing them last month that I’ve never looked back. (I linked a similar option below, too!) Of course, I’ll never be able to leave a heel behind but the option of a flat these days is looking better and better. Hashtag things I never thought I’d say.
