These five pairs of fabulous flats are anything but lowbrow

Friday, October 10, 2014   |   5 comments

So much has happened since my last post, which was - somehow! - almost eight months ago. In that time, Himself and I finally got around to organising our wedding and getting hitched, and then just as we were getting settled back at home after our honeymoon, Boris passed away.

That properly knocked us sideways, and has kept me sad for a very long time.

But this post isn't about any of those things.

This post is about me trying to regain my blogging mojo through the medium of walkable-innable shoes.

Flats are enjoying a full-on revival in fashion circles at the moment. I mean, when even heel honchos Manolo Blahnik and Victoria Beckham have deigned to get in on the flat act, you know it's serious.

This is wonderful news for the flats lovers amongst us who choose them for reasons of either comfort (I've a freakishly high pain threshold but just cannot be arsed with discomfort) or stability (I feel worringly unsteady in heels) because suddenly this season, gorgeous versions are EVERYWHERE.

My credit card is quaking in its (flat, obvs) boots.

Winklepicker style toes are on point for a chic workwear look (and running for the bus without snotting yourself) while luxe slipper style loafers are an edgier alternative to ballet pumps, which now feel woefully out of date.

Here are five pairs that I wouldn't kick out of my wardrobe for eating crisps...

ONE // Russell & Bromley "Tantrum" dress flats, £225

TWO // Carvela "Lyric" nude flat slippers, £49

THREE // Carvela "Lavish" gold glitter ballerinas, £69

FOUR // Primark glitter accented tassel loafers, £14 (terrible stock photography from Primark - I have these and they are beaut in real life!)

FIVE // Charlotte Olympia Kitty embroidered velvet slippers, £365

Psst - I'll be updating this dedicated Pinterest board with ALL OF THE FLATS as I find them. Be sure to follow along!

    Ah thank you (on all counts.) It's good to be back :)

    I agonised for so long over what to write about after such a protracted absence that I was in danger of never hitting "publish" again. So, shoes!

    Welcome back! Great picks. I usually prefer flats for they are really so comfy to wear and I can really wear them all day long without an aching feet.
