To be completely honest with you, I only own about three pairs of flat shoes, which is a tiny amount in comparison to the 25 pairs of boots, pumps, and wedges that I own all of which have at least some kind of heel. I blame this on two things: 1)my mother and 2)Pinterest. My mom has worn heels for most of her life. She probably owns less flat shoes than I do. And Pinterest, well, I can't find the image again {and I forgot to pin it!} but it showed a girl from behind, one picture in flats and another identical picture but with heels. Huge difference. I'm pretty sure the heels made her look like she lost about 5-10 pounds. I think that was the true beginning of my heel obsession.

That being said, this was defintitely a style bust for me. Thanks to Katie I was renewed with my love for flats and their comfort. But the point we wanted to prove for this style buster is that wearing flats doesn't make your outfit any less fancy. You can still be dressed up and wear flats.

Don't forget to check out Katie's post about flats and link up in the comment if you love flats, too. And if you want to participate in the rest of the style busters we have left, you can see the schedule here.

Happy Friday Eve!


  1. It's funny because flats are so cute, but I find myself wearing boots, heals more... like flats make my feet look long... but flat boots or sandels don't... They are a great pair with that dress. Very cute!

    you still have the fancy going on in these flats, girl! and trust me, heels can make a difference but i feel like it's a sacrifice between if i can even walk for beauty or go for the gold and comfort. comfort always wins in my book!

  3. I love that s.k.i.r.t you're wearing. It is really cute!

  4. Oh! I agree at about the long feet! I try to be really careful and not pick flats that eccentuate the length! Haha. I'm all about the boots! :)

  5. Definitely! I try to wear flats whenever I have to walk very far or walk quickly! They are lifesavers. I've even been known to wear my heels to work and change for running errands at lunch, just for the comfort. But I also usually try to buy heels that don't hurt my feet because it's tough on a girl wearing them all day long! Haha.

  6. Thanks! Francesca's never lets me down. :)
