Flats are Shoes Too.

I know this is my life in heels and not my life in flats, but let’s get real… certain occasions call for flats. Example? A birthday bbq!

I went shopping specifically to find some flats and knew I’d find something great on sale since all these crazy retailers have their Summer stuff on sale… EVEN THOUGH Summer has barely started. I will never understand that, but that’s a whole different post.

I found these at Chloe and fell in love. They are my idea of a perfect Summer sandal. Soft buttery leather, the perfect shade of tobacco, and super comfortable too. The fact that they were 40% off was all the reason I needed to buy them, plus a similar pair in white.

I’ve really been into this cropped shirt thing and thought I’d give it a try. I had to pair it with these vintage high waisted shorts (culottes? haha) to make sure I didn’t show too much belly. I’m not going for a ’90s Britney Spears bare midriff thing.

Banksy likes my new shoes. He’s checkin’ um out.

I love this ring. I found it in Hong Kong and don’t wear it nearly enough. Its coral enamel wrapped around to hold a coral shaped piece of glass.

    1 cent?! I need to go shopping more… That skirt is so adlbaroe! It doesn’t look like something Wet Seal would have. I love it. I totally feel for the school thing. My posts are so scattered because of school. I need to get back in the groove.

    I love this outfit and the shoes are exactly what flats should be. They’re a lovely leather, a perfect color, and are cute enough that you don’t feel like you’re lacking because they’re not heels.

  • Chloe Aug.03.2010, 9:23 am

    Love everything !!!! superbe !

  • Nadia Simple&Funky Aug.03.2010, 8:28 am

    your title sounds like you fight for flat shoes’ rights haha.
    well, I think these Chloé sandals look just perfect!
    Also totally agree with you on this “summer sale” thing, like all the stuff they put on sale couldn’t be worn before july anyway so…well, good for us!

    And I wish I could find the skirt that I could pair with my cropped t shirts…jeez this is hard, dont wanna show my belly!

  • Shamini Aug.03.2010, 7:12 am

    nice ring!

  • mbt shoes Aug.03.2010, 6:21 am

    You are right that flat are shoes too and they are much more pretty. The color of the shoes which you have wore is really nice and cool too.

  • Jessie P Aug.03.2010, 2:36 am

    Cute! You have long hair!!!!!

  • Healthy In Heels Aug.03.2010, 1:43 am

    You are so adorable! Love the flats, they seem like the kind you can wear over and over again and they just look better and more “authentic” with every wear.

    Also, your mani/pedi is perfect, do you do it yourself?


  • kkist Aug.03.2010, 1:36 am

    I love it! We can’t always wear heels (even though we want to)!

    Also that ring…Please pass it along when you are done with it!

    One last thing….you should be wearing a Kenda Kist Necklace with that black shirt!

  • hiyaluv Aug.03.2010, 1:02 am

  • d Aug.03.2010, 12:04 am

    drool… I’m on a mission now :) For the color on your toes AND those shoes!

    I’ve never understood the sale of that season’s items either, although a friend of mine who’s all about fashion always shops a season ahead… maybe that’s it?

    No matter the reason, it’s super RAD for those of us who don’t and wanna get a DEAL!

  • holly in heels Aug.02.2010, 9:44 pm

    luv luv luv the Chloe sandals–they really are the perfect color and pair so well with your Essie polish! Delish.

    Wendy- I know… It’s time I man up and get that spike ring I’m obsessed with.

    Laura- Haha, totally! I love this color. I’m really into all these new neutrals. :)

  • Karolinka.cy Aug.02.2010, 7:08 pm

    Great flats and you look great!

  • Laura Aug.02.2010, 6:53 pm

    I love those! I wish I could wear strappy sandals like that, but I have the narrowest feet known to mankind and can’t wear stuff like that. I painted my nails (well left hand anyway) minutes before logging on and I painted them with You Don’t Know Jacques! Me and you, we’re like this! Haha.

  • Loulou Aug.02.2010, 5:50 pm

    i really like your sandals, and you look adorable in that outfit!
