Fab Functional Flats

Top - SheInside, Pants - Lonny's, Flats - Le Bunny Bleu, Handbag - Ily Couture, Jacket - Jessica Simpson (On sale for $35.99), Nail Polish - Nicole by OPI "I Lilac Gumdrops"

As someone who has spent the large majority of my adult life swearing off flats (which, lets face it, on frumpy days feel more like "fats"), I've finally crossed the function over fashion threshold. Sure, I'll always prefer the extra inches a fab pair of heels provides, but a summer sans fabulous flats sounds positively awful, which is why I've been trying to incorporate more and more into my wardrobe. From beach bound outings to day trip adventures, there's no denying the spontaneity a pair of flats can offer. Below are some of my favorites. Which pair are you currently crushing on?







Below are some of my favorite flats currently available online. Click the picture to shop your favorite pair!


Don't forget to enter my two giveaways here and here. I will be picking multiple winners later today.

  12. I always carry flats.
    in case I have to run from the cops
    but I always have heels handy too in case
    I have to give and impromptu lapdance.

  18. I have a girlfriend who doesn't wear heels at all (her husband is shorter than her and has a mild Napoleon Complex), and I feel like she is closing out a whole world of possibilities. I for one though, basically live in heels, and am yet to find a pair of flats that truly speaks to me.
    Love your big ol' bag!

  33. I cant say enough good things about flats! As much as I love wearing a heel, I just feel so much more comfortable in flats! I feel like my mood even changes- if that makes sense? haha :) I think a great flat can work just as well as a heel, you just have to find the right one! I love the ones you are wearing. I think they perfectly compliment your outfit! I go for nude or bright colors to add a little spice to an outfit!

  57. I LOVE flats! They're my choice of shoe because I do walk quite a lot. But heels are always nice for quick trips and going out. I love the red and black&white striped flats you featured. So nautical!

    Btw. Where is your ring from? It's adorable!


    P.S. Thank you for visiting our blog!

  58. I don't think I'll ever feel weird about wearing flats. Though I love heels, flats are just sooo much more practical for navigating my life, especially since I'm always on foot. I love all your picks - they're so cute, especially the eyelash flats!

  59. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. This is the funnest post! I loved seeing the celebrity pics, you didn't pick just celebrities in flats... they are actually in cute outfits too! Which for me, inspires me a lot more. I know just what you mean about flats being "fats" on some days and I have to say... if I'm wearing pants that are flattering I'm good to sport some flats... don't you think it helps so much?

    I'm so excited to go check out the site where your own are from, they are so adorable and I've never even seen "Le Bunny Bleu". Let's keep in touch... I am excited to poke around some more. I love what I see so far, it's so fun finding blogs that offer up content that is relevant and just fun to read.
