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.
