The Staple: Flats



[do action=”rstyle-post-links”]SAVE: MOSSIMO lainey perforated flats  |  ASOS lover boy ballet flats  |  RIVER ISLAND  pink gem stone ballet flats




INVESTMENT: TOD’S classic ballerina flats  |  JENNI KAYNE D’Orsay flat  |  VIVIENNE WESTWOOD melissa divine ballerina flats




SPLURGE: CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA kitty stud flats  |  SAINT LAURENT metallic pointy toe ballet flat  |  VALENTINO rockstud ballerina flats[/do]

I get many questions about what staple pieces one should have in their wardrobe and there’s a handful of items to always have. One of the key items on that list is definitely: flats.

Heels are always a must, but they’re not always the most comfortable. Personally, I like to stick to being comfortable throughout my whole day and I know I can always rely on a pair of flats. Now a days there are so many amazing styles to pick from! I really do think that if you can save up for one GOOD pair of flats now, then your wardrobe/closet will thank you later. I always say that you don’t have to compromise style for comfort, so buy a pretty pair to take you throughout your whole day… they’re perfect for school,  traveling, running errands, and everything else in between.

A few other options:

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the
    easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people
    think about worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

    Those flats are so great. F2 has alot of them and the’re all really nice. I was thinking about getting a pair there, but I left, because I began to doubt. Now I am seeing all those cute ones in your blogpost, I really want to get back and get it!

  20. Mahsa (the Crushworthy) Comment #21

    Great picks–I’m particularly in love with the Valentino flat but in the nude colour. I wrote a blog post recently about mamahood and the inverse relationship with heel height–aka wearing flats instead of heels. You can read about it here

  24. vinyl weights Comment #25

    The fact is quite contrary as the body turns
    towards fats stores as a secondary source of
    energy and starts burning them. Think about your work schedule, do you keep a diary system or
    any to do list. There are about 480 of these items currently on the market.
    On dinner tables they prefer to talk rather than eat.

    Here is my web-site :: vinyl weights

    Ooo those white ASOS strappy ones are actually really cute.
    .. and many a time I have pranced around a sotre in the Valentino’s and walked out saying ‘I can’t justify it’.. though I regret not picking them up when I was in the US (so much more $$ in Australia).

    Flats are so tough more me because I have such big feet and im flat footed, so when it comes to flats I always buy ones with a strap so that my feet dont fall out!

    Just spend a number of minutes freely writing in the heart and then get on while using rest of your day, leaving your unconscious to devour the learning.

    Each professional will generally reap a reward because of their efforts.
    regardless ( Some situations are said easier by writing
    letters, some better by not writing letters but notes.
    Using picture books to teach descriptive writing isn’t only for
    little kids.
