As a 5’0 gal, I have always worn heels – like always. To the point where I have calluses <insert head shake>. Recently, my husband, Chuck, was like, you need to hop on the flats train – he’s worried I’m going to hurt my back and just all around mess up my feet. So I compromised and told him I’d throw in some flats into my shoe game and give my feet a break from heels.

These Gucci flats are ones we purchased back in February/March and they are THE most comfortable flats I own. I can wear them all day at work and I get no blisters (which is a win/win!). Now, given I’m only 5’0, I’ve always felt that flats were a bit of an enemy because I feel frumpy when I wear them. Well, my petite ladies – I’ve figured out how to make them work without feeling like a troll (I know, so bad!).

  1. Pair with Boyfriend Denim. These boyfriend jeans have been my all time favorite – I talk about them in this post and have been wearing them on repeat ever since I purchased them. What I love about them, is they are the perfect length – not too short and not too long – and are easy to pair with some flats and still feel cute. Try it out and let me know what you think!
  2. The Artsy Look. Lately, I’ve been wearing flats with leggings and a long, chill tunic. It certainly dresses up a more relaxed look and is super comfortable. I will be posting this look next week, so stay tuned.
  3. Easy Office Skirt Look. I love the look of flats with a pencil skirt and a white, collared button up shirt. It’s comfortable and easy to walk from meeting to meeting.

What do you pair your flats with?
