Flats

I've gotten numerous comments on my outfit posts about the variety of flats I own. When I did 30 for 30 and picked 3 different pairs (that you no doubt got sick of seeing), I got even more comments and a couple of requests to show some of my flats - so here you go. (I thought pictures of every single pair would be boring, so this is more of an overview of some favorites.)
I keep mostly flats in this shoe organizer that hangs in the closet. This isn't all of them, but it's the bulk of them.
My Tory Burch Revas are my hands down favorites. Love them, am obsessed with them, have absolutely no doubt I'll buy tons more. I've had both of these for over 2 years and they've been worn A LOT and are both absolutely fine. Completely worth the money.
These are all from Gap. The red patent d'orsays and the leopard prints you probably remember from 30 for 30. 
Blue Express lace up flats, BCBG gray rosettes (also from 30 for 30), and pink studded Steve Maddens. Clearly this is a type of shoe I like to have a little fun with. Why not, right?

Ballet flats probably rival heels for my most pairs in my shoe collection. Not surprising considering how much wear you can get out of them. Of course now that it's hot out, I've broken out the flat sandals - but that would be a different post :)

What kind of shoes do you wear the most?

I have a lot of flats but I like to mix them up with wedges!

Love the pink Maddens! Too cute.

While I love flats, I typically stick to heels one on a day to day basis, especially for work. I'm short and need the extra height. And I like what they do for my legs. But on weekends, you'll often see me kicking around in a pair of black ballet flats. I think I might invest in a TB pair this summer.

I love flats, but apparently I am very picky when actually going to purchase! I've looked a lot at the Tory Burch Revas online, but haven't seen them in person yet.. After your glowing recommendation, I'll have to try them!

I love seeing someone else with a big collection of flats! I wear flats the majority of the time because I don't have a car and so walk everywhere, making heels rather impractical for the most part. I so want a pair of Revas...I just need to save up a bit!

Those red print ones are so fun! I have a pair of leopard flats I wear all the time that I love. I also have a pair I painted electric blue that I LOVE. Cute flats are essential!

great collection!!! I love both red ones! Ballet flats are some of my favorite go-to shoes as well. I am pretty tall, so I don't need to wear heels for height. I only wear them for fun. But Ballet flats are really shoes for every day!

well. i hurt my toes pretty bad from wearing high heels yesterday, so it's flats from now on for me!

my absolute faves are a pink and orange woven leather pair from kate spade. they are in danger of falling apart, and i can only wear them when there's zero percent chance of rain (like, 2 days a year) but i LOVE them!

Megan said...

so fun to see these and dang do u have alot of flats!!!

i like my revas too, but i have issues with them staying on the backs of my feets! do u have any tips? or maybe i just have jacked up feet LOL. :-)

i would say of all of my shoes, i wear my moccasins the most. they are just really comfortable!

Isabel said...

i wear alot of ballet flats too. those tory burch boxes are so fun!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I used to wear flats a lot and still wear my Jimmy Choo for H&M flats a lot. I just left a lot in NY and you are reminding me to reclaim them!

Do you think Lanvin flats are worth it?

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Wow you have a lot!!! I switch it up from flats to heels and definitely lots of flips and sandals during the warmer months. I just ordered about 10 new pairs of shoes to try because I need to change things up a bit. Pretty bored of my selection lately :)

What an adorable collection of flats! I love those red patent d'Orsay flats-so divine!

Bonnie said...

I love your shoes. I love creeping on other people's shoes. Is that weird? Not that I care.
While I will always advocate for heels, I will admit that my flats are necessary. Because I am such an active person, sometimes I just need the perrrr-fect pair of flats for a day!

i wear bensimon sneakers or leather boots most days. i find them to be the cutest & most comfortable. i like to wear heels at night, but always regret it. i choose the most uncomfortable pairs! do you find the gap flats to be comfy? i've always wondered about them! xo

Jess said...

love the leopard print! Great way to jazz up a simple outfit :)

Shea said...

I am a flats collector too--they're definitely my go-to shoe. And I think I love your Gap pairs the best, especially the red patent and red print! I want to steal those right from your closet :)

this free bird said...

I'm just not sure you have enough flats. Hmmmm.

I think I need to add a couple pairs to my collection. I only have 2. shhhhhhh

xo,

Kristin said...

I would love to get my hands on that fabulous flats wardrobe of yours. So many gorgeous options!

Torrie said...

Wow... such a variety! Love all of them, but I think the Gap ones are my favorite. I'm still trying to build my shoe collection (honestly, I was a little behind on life- fashion in particular- when I started my blog a year ago), so this helps remind me how much fun I could have with flats. Sandals and boots were my favorite shoes, but flats are becoming a new favorite.

I'd love to see your sandal collection!
