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.)

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

Love those flats! The Shedd aquarium is one of my favorite places and so is Navy Pier.

The blouse is so picnic chic and perfectly paired with the fit and flare skirt!

I have bad knees so can't wear heels easily so its flats all the way! These are gorgeous, I saw them in store and fell in love but, alas, no spare cash! I'll clearly have to live vicariously

This outfit is perfect, something I would totally wear, and like you, I am very much a flats girl! I love my heels, but for the amount I walk downtown I am mostly found in flats! I lovelovelove these Zara ones! Adorable!

Taylor said...

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!
