The Flats Thing

Thursday, February 23, 2012


Loves, do you wear flats? They are my ultimate go-to-shoes! What I love about them is that you can wear them with a pair of jeans or a fancy dress and look super adorable and feel comfortable. My friend, Lilly says that the reason she sticks with ballerina flats (which she has a full closet of) and stays away from heels is because it's better to look snazzy wearing simple flats than in pain and all over the place in heels. I've always admired girls who can rock the high heel look but sadly I look like Olive from Popeye while wearing them. How about you? What’s your shoe of choice? Where do you buy flats? xo

P.S: I just got myself this polka dot pair and I can't wait to wear it.
P.P.S: Also, snazzy loafers and cool sneakers.

I was JUST thinking about flats. I love my TOMS but I adore my Sperry boat shoes. They kept my feet happy and healthy during my Disneyland trip. I also LOVE flat boots. Love them.

Simply stunning. Love.

Stephanie said...

Ballet flats are definitely a go-to shoe for me, though I do enjoy a 4" heel once in awhile! (Today for instance!)

OOH how I love flats! I have a favorite pair that are the same color as my jeans so it makes my legs look longer like nude shoes with dresses.

I need some leopard ones and red ones BAD!

Alexa said...

I wear them ALL of the time. It's ridiculous! But they are amazing!

Tish said...

I'm loving the zigzag photo of the gal with red flats. Ooo la la!

I prefer heels (boots really) because my foot feels more supported, but I do wear flats pretty often. I'm wearing some today actually! I also really like my oxfords when I want to be flat on the ground :)

oh Diana, you make me laugh.
I adore flats and I am so thrilled that h&m have tons of colors to choose from this year. So my closet is full of them.
I too love the look of a heel but I am 6ft tall and so as not to tower over everyone in heels...flats it is

I wish I could wear flats!

Diana Mieczan said...

Amy, I'm 5.10:) Btw: such a good reminder. I have to check out h&m for a cute colourful pair of flats.

Diana Mieczan said...

She looks super snazzy, doesn't she, Tish? And Alexa, I totally agree.

Diana Mieczan said...

HiLLjO, what a good idea! I need to get a pair in the colour of my favourite jeans. Thanks

Christianna said...

I love flats! But recently I've been into wearing oxfords, they are great cause they are like the flats that won't fall off! It's hard to keep flats on when your running around a lot.

Diana said...

I Love, love the polka dot pair you bought! Also the orange and pink pair in the post, how fun! I am def a flats girl, whether its to dress up or to take a walk in the park!

PS I tagged you in my 11 questions post! xoxo

holtkamp said...

i love the flat you just got! i always wear flat despite the fact i'm so short :)

Natalie said...

I used to not like flats, but in the past few years they have become my"go-to" shoe as well, especially now that i've found some comfy ones witgh lots of cushioning and support!

laurenjeanallece said...

I am definitely a flats gal! Wintertime in Portland means rain, which means boot (which I kick up with a little wedge heel - woah, gettin' crazy!), but come spring/summer I'm back in flats! I have two pairs of pointy-toes (cognac & black) from Target years ago and they are my favorites! Dress 'em up or down, they are perfect!

Relydesign said...

Great style ..I especially love the second picture :D

I am definitely not a flat wearer. I have a short achilles heel which makes it uncomfortable to wear them. Not to mention my husband is 6'9" tall, so heels seem like a must.

Sandy a la Mode said...

i looove wearing flats! currently looking for a floral pair!!

Ann On and On... said...

I do love flats. I think there is a level of sophistication and cuteness to them. I'm not sure they always flatter me, but sometimes I just don't care. (Or at least I tell myself that) Love the second to last photo...and the bike photo!

mytravelboots said...

I love flats. They are the perfect traveling shoe!

FourJedis said...

Love, love, love the pinkies in photo #2!

Amber said...

Im wearing flats now. Go me!

Stop by and enter my Vedette giveaway!

LyddieGal said...

I don't look good in flats at all! I'm pretty sure only tall skinny girls can rock em.

Diana Mieczan said...

Glad you like them, Di! I can't wait to wear them:) Thank you for tagging me. I'm off to check it out.

Diana Mieczan said...

Oh Lauren, I LOVE the pointy-toes:) And Emily, oh my, I thought that I was tall.

TheChambrayCountess said...

I am almost 6ft tall and still love to wear heels out on the town, but I think flats for day make me look less imposing :) I have taupe brogues that go with almost everything and ballet flats that go with almost everything, too, so I always have a comfy footwear option.
Love the AtlanticPacific pic, btw!

Eliza Jane said...

I adore flats. Especially brightly coloured ones! xx

Patricia Villamil said...

Flats are my go to shoes, always! I have never been a pumps girl! unless it really requires it. I love the combo on pictures 2 and 3. I can't wait to wear them again very soon, although Winter has been on the mild side. Today the temps. reached 70 degrees and I wore my black ones!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

Lady Grey said...
