A few years ago, I started getting cramps in my feet every few days. I figured it was a result of wearing ridiculously high pumps to work. I was willing to suffer for fashion until I found that the cramps were waking me up in the middle of the night. While I wasn't ready to give up on the addition four inches of height that my heels provided, I did decide to wear a pair of flats every so often. The good news is that designers are creating flats with so much character and charm that they really can add something sweet to an outfit. And as a girl who took ballet for most of her life, I have to say that there's something special about throwing on a pair of ballet flats that takes me back to my dancing days.
Here are a few pairs that I am loving...
I love the blush tone and the sweet little diamond bows!
I love this two-toned pair. They feel very Chanel without the hefty price tag!
I love ankle straps on any shoes, but on ballet flats, I find them pure perfection.
Again, I am drawn to the ankle strap flat.
The color combo of apple green and navy is just adorable. These would add the perfect pop of color to jeans and a white tee.
This pair covers two trends in one - ballet flats and animal prints!
This would be my big splurge pair. I love the belt details. The handbag that matches these is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!
I think Jane will love all of these when she gets to be a big girl, but for now, she seems pretty happy in her ballet flat tights!
