wear what works for you {ballet flats}.

as previously mentioned i love ballet flats. i rarely wear heels- and when i do they are usually under 3 inches (if that) and only stay on my feet for a few hours. i cannot bring myself to wear tennis shoes outside of the gym (which drives h nuts when he wants to walk for miles). i am the most comfortable in ballet flats and i wear them year round. 

here are my budget-friendly picks for spring in two of my favorite trends: nudes and nautical...

  36. I LOVE ballet flats! I have a pair of white and silver Lanvins that I've worn for about three years straight, and I adore them. Definitely loving our heatwave -- I was actually able to wear a pair of ballet flats today instead of the usual boots!

  40. I am a huge fan of ballet flats! Actually, last year one of my resolutions was to learn how to walk in heels. Seeing as that never really panned out... it's flats for me!

  43. I need all of these!! I wear ballet flats almost every day and am always looking for new pairs! I love heels but I am on my feet all day so it isnt really a good idea for me to wear them at work.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Okay, #1 - HOW DO YOU HAVE 46 COMMENTS? You are a blogging fiend. #2 - Love the blue stripe. I find myself wearing more and more flats. Apparently, when you work out a lot, wearing high heels is impossible. Not only does it make your workout worse, but the day after a workout, you cant hardly stand. I tell ya. :)
