Fall Flats

I live in flats in the fall (and every season, really), and each year I'm on the lookout for a new pair of black patent flats. I always go for patent because I think it looks nicer with tights than regular leather and the perfect pair of flats must have a little visual interest at the toe while still being plain enough to be versatile. The Emery flats from J.Crew Factory fit the bill. A bow at the toe? Just the detail I was looking for. Plus, they come in nude... and a girl can never have too many nude flats. Or blue flats... or coral flats...


  1. These flats are all so terrific, but I am having a terrible time deciding which color to get. I've eliminated the black, but that's as far as I've gotten. (Found your blog by doing a Google search of the flats!)
