Gumshoeing for Flats


I know this is nearly sacrilege to say, but although I love the look of heels, and understand their place in the world of fashion, I deeply hate wearing them. Now the ugly truth is out.

Thus, I'm always on the lookout for cute flats. This weekend I hit the jackpot:


Alice + Olivia for Payless is not a new thing, but I'd never checked out the line myself. I ducked into a Payless this past weekend and fell in love with this pair. I already have an outfit lined up: basic white tank, gray high-waisted shorts, these shoes, and a long gold necklace. I think they will be wardrobe chameleons, either pairing them with a cute, dressier sundress or putting a little polish on a casual look. 

Lela Rose and Christian Siriano are also collaborating with Payless, so if you haven't been by in a while, it might be worth a stop. I loved the print on this pair of slingbacks by Lela Rose:


If I wore heels, they'd be mine! But, of course, I don't. You probably do, though. And they're worth a peek.
