Shopping: [Flats]

Thursday, April 9, 2015

Even at 5'10", I love to wear a good heel/wedge (benefits of having a 6'6" husband, he's still always taller). :) But lately, between keeping up with the fam and/or lugging around toddler+baby, plus my casual work atmosphere, I'm becoming a much bigger fan of my flats. I still want to keep it fun and fashionable, so I'm thinking I need to add to my collection in celebration of spring/summer!!
I'm not prejudiced and love a good deal, a Target or Old Navy shoe, but I also want to start investing in better, classic pieces (that will last more than a season) since I tend to really wear them, so quality is important. Last year, I bought my first pair of Tory Burch flats, the Reva (on a great sale, of course); however, due to some bigger-pregnant feet, I didn't get much use last year; so I am looking forward to breaking them out again soon. 
Otherwise, I'm currently looking for a good black and/or animal print flat for my go-to uniform. Between some fun-money burning a hole in my pocket and my upcoming birthday, here are a few I'm considering..

I was hoping this pair would be a winner for the current trend, but after trying on in store, I didn't find the fit too great.

Where is your go-to for shoe shopping?
Any great brands you've had success with (price/style/comfort/quality)?

  1. I have some Tory burch Reva flats and while they were comfy enough when I worked in an office I don't find them great for all day walking. Such a shame! I love the look of those ballet flats! I'm a huge fan of flats and rarely wear heels anymore! I like the soludos flat espadrilles and just got a pair of slip on sneakers that I want to wear around the house and see if they are really comfortable!

    1. Yeah, my Revas definitely need broke in a bit. Slip on sneakers are the other thing I'd like to get, but I have 'big' feet so I'm afraid they'll make my feet look even bigger. I know, like it matters. :) I'm mostly about comfort these days. I'll have to check out those Soludos.

  2. I'm 5'9 and just started wearing flats last year! I need a Tory Birch pair! My favorite "fancy" ones are AGL. Nordstrom carries the brand. The are outrageously expensive, but somewhat doable on sale (I snagged them when Nordies did some price matching). I can't say enough about those shoes!

    1. Sign up for emails with TB, they have friends and family sales every once in a while, I think I got mine 25% off. I'll have to check out AGL, not familiar with them (and find them on major sale of course. :)

  3. I LOVE me a good flat. I have some TOMS ballet flats that I love and pretty much wear everyday to work. They hurt a little at first (rubbed on my heel) but they broke in fast. I recently got some flats at Payless (of all places, I almost never shop there) on a good deal that I've been loving as well. But I heard Old Navy has some cute ones so I might try to check them out soon too!

    1. Definitely can't go wrong with TOMS, I wear the pairs I have all the time and find them great for lots of walking too!! Yes, I'm thinking I need to do some 'real' shopping this weekend (instead of all online). :)
