Take me to the Ballet…flats!

Well it has been 18 days, 8 hrs, 30 minutes, 45 seconds (and counting) since my last purchase but hey who’s counting LOL! Although I haven’t been physically shopping ,I have still been cyber window shopping to see “what’s out there”. I have come across a few items that I want to purchase once this challenge is over. My husband and I will be going on an anniversary trip in September to Chi Town for a few days. I can’t wait! We love Chicago 🙂 Chicago is a very  pedestrian friendly place (specifically the downtown area) so I know that we will be doing a lot of walking!  For this reason, I would like to purchase another pair of ballet flats (or 2 or 3).

Ballet flats are my favorite type of shoes. Although I own a lot of heels and wedges, they only get utilized during the summer and on special occasions. Ballet flats are my everyday shoes. Here are some awesome flats that I have found during my search.

I love the texture of these burlap flats from the brand Tom’s.  I have never owned a pair but I would definitely splurge on these. I also love the fact that for every pair of shoes the company sells, they send a pair to a child in need. That alone would justify me spending the $79 US on these babies!

Cap toe shoes are also making a statement in today’s footwear. Although I like the look of some cap toe heels, I love the look of cap toe ballet flats much more! They are such a cute little decorative touch to a pair of simple shoes.

I love the textured cap toe featured on this Mandarin ballet flat by the brand Wanted. It almost looks like fish scales. I have also seen a lot of tutorials on YouTube about how to create the cap toe look on a pair of bland shoes with only painter’s tape and a can of metallic spray paint. It’s seems like a simple and inexpensive way to jazz up a pair of older shoes.

These spiked flats by Shoe Republic LA would definitely add some edginess to my wardrobe. I can picture wearing these with some jeans and a T-shirt and a faux leather jacket on a weekend day. These would definitely be the statement piece of the outfit. I think I would rather have them in a darker color though.

And of course I have my eye on a couple of designer brands as well. I don’t currently own any designer flats but if I were to disregard my budget for a minute, I might be persuaded to purchase a pair of  these Eddie Bow flats by Tory Burch. They are so simple but the color is amazing. I could definitely see wearing these throughout the fall and winter months for that simple pop of color. I don’t own a pair of red flats!

Surprise surprise another pair of Tory Burch shoes make the list. These Kaitlin quilted flats have a certain classiness about them. The quilting almost reminds me of a Chanel bag. And I love the gold cap toe.

Well only 14 more days to go in my challenge and I have done quite well so far! I have proven that I can look and not touch ;).

What is your go to style of shoes? Have a ballet flat recommendation? Leave me a comment down below!
