Everyday Rx // Ballet Flats

I know. You’re thinking… “You DON’T wear flats on the blog!”  See, this is EXACTLY why I’m doing an Everyday Rx.  I actually wear flats quite a bit, especially at work or when I’m running around with the little guy.

As with my other obsessions, I have quite a variety of flats.  They suit me for different occasions… kind of like jeans.  Awhile back, I wanted to minimize my wardrobe and have only 2 pairs of jeans.  IMPOSSIBLE to do for myself.  Anyhow, I digress…  These are the brands of flats that I have used, own, and adore.

Repetto // These have always been my standard go-to flats.  I have them in black and brown exotic and even have ankle boots.  They feel like you’re wearing nothing – the leather is extremely thin and so is the sole. They don’t have any support, so you may need to add an insert if that’s a thing for you.  However, I just love them… probably because they’re French and the French look good in everything!  They even make your feet look pretty in flats. That sounds like a weird thing to say, but I have very wide feet.  I avoided flats for the longest time because they were very unflattering to my wide feet and made them look kind of like duck feet. {Not that I don’t like ducks and their feet… I just don’t want duck feet.}

Repetto Picks:

MIU MIU // Now when you think of jeweled flats, MIU MIU should be the ones that pop into your head.  Have you heard my princess shoes story? Well, THESE cap toe jeweled flats are what I wore to work when a doctor asked me if I had princess shoes on.  I guess in hindsight, can you blame him?  These are the most bedazzled and jeweled flats that I’ve ever seen!  I also have a pair of green jeweled flats.  In reality, they are beautiful but not the practical {for work in the hospital}.  And the elasticized back tend to rub my heels.  But oh, how I LOVE these flats.

Other bejeweled ballet flats:

Ann Taylor // I love these Skylar flats!  Besides being comfortable, they do make quite an impression with the gold cap toe and heel {last seen HERE and HERE}.  The metal detail elevates them and make them my dressy but professional flats!

Ann Taylor Picks:  BTW, Ann Taylor is having 50% off Full Price shoes!  No code needed!

I LOVE these foldaway flats…

Yosi Samara // I have the studded T-strap ballet flats.  They are the perfect mix of feminine and edge.  And it goes without saying that they are SO COMFY!!

Yosi Samra Picks:

Tieks //  I’ve been wearing my fuschia flats NON-STOP lately!  They are a thicker leather but so soft and extremely comfy.  And I like the signature turquoise soles.  Additionally, the split sole make them so easy to walk in but ALSO fold in half.
