Commuter (See Jane Wear)

crewcuts shirt, Theory skirt, Zara flats, Gap jean jacket (via eBay)
Heels are great but you'll never catch me commuting in a pair.  I'm always on the go, which is why I love a good pair of flats--and cute, ankle straps are always an added bonus.  These shoes will be getting lots of use this weekend when I'm entertaining my sister, brother-in-law and adorable/mischievous nephews.  In fact, I feel a trip to the Lego Store/aquarium/Navy Pier coming on, so another flats post might be heading your way come Monday.

(If you're wondering about that Net-a-Porter bag, it's my fancy, lunch/camera/work sack--in addition to my work bag.)

  6. I find some people can make flats look style-less and bland, whilst others just scream chic.. you definitely fall into the latter category :). Great legs helps too! x

  54. Just thought I'd pop over and say hello, and tell you I just LOVE those Zara flats. I'm 100% behind the movement to bring back pointy-toe flats, and the ankle strap adds a sweet detail! Hope you're well - XO!
