Fashion Week Flats!

17th September 2015

IMG_7199Want to hear two words that don’t normally go together: Fashion Week Flats (well, that’s technically three words but whatever you get the point).IMG_7397

   IMG_7317 There’s an unspoken rule that you’re supposed to pull out your best fashion foot forward for Fashion “month”, and by best foot forward, the – whoever, they are – mean heels. Hey I can do heels everyday – everyday where I walk to work in them, sit in my desk in them, walk to lunch in them and walk home or even to dinner in them … but I can’t really do 8 days straight 7 days straight of 7 inch heels where I have to track a few blocks from the subway to my shows, stand during presentations, walk from neighborhood to neighborhood for meetings and mix and mingle whilst standing straight without my feet becoming a flight risk… If you can, you’re awesome – more awesome than me, but until I get that super power or whatever magic potion that allows me to do it, I have to give my feet a break every so often.IMG_7179

Enter fun Brazilian-designed flats – as Bananas as it sounds, I averaged about two looks a day for NYFW (I know, I have a problem). Somedays, I would have two shows that warranted different styles or two very different moods that resulted in an impromptu outfit change. Anyway, I made sure I went into the week with 15ish outfits, knowing I would probably wear closer to 13 – I KNOW, I’m insane – don’t judge me! Anyways, Today I’m sharing TWO of the Color Me Casual looks I wore for meetings, presentations, errands and other fashion week fun all while giving my toesies a much needed break!

IMG_7382IMG_7406For my first look I went with something a little bit edgier for morning meetings and a presentation or two. Presentations differ from Fashion Shows, because you’re standing, walking around and watching the models – meaning there are no chairs and the perfect time to test out some flats – yay! I’m so so so so so so SO obsessed with leather right now so I combined a little green leather bag with the best leather skirt like ever – complete with POCKETS yay (I’m literally SO OBSESSED). I took one of my favorite summer off the shoulder tops but made it transitional (and office appropriate) by layering it under a black tuxedo vest. The star of this outfit is the fun red lace up flats – totally on trend right now and crazy comfy if you have to be on your feet all day. If you’re toes are a little chubby (guilty) try ordering a size up to ensure you can fit into these pointed tips, oh and try double knotting your bows to keep them in place all day!IMG_7364

IMG_7165Flash forward to a few days later… So I know its practically Fall, but all this spring collection excitement has got me seriously excited for florals and pastels – is it too early? Hoping that fall pastels will be another serious trend this year (spoiler alert, they will) with this next look, by pairing a white seventies blouse with a fun floral skirt! I added elements of blue in my bag and sunnies to bring another element to the look and topped it off with the cutest floral shoes that are not only crazy comfortable BUT ALSO rain resistant – LIKE WHAT. This look was perfect to change into after morning shows (and rain, ugh) for a few meetings, lunch and errands before slipping into a third (yes, third) look of the day.IMG_7285IMG_7227

    Cute looks! You have such a fun style!

    I agree with you- heels are great, but to wear them without break for that long would have me crawling from show to show…and that’s not a good look. :) Flats can be fierce too!!

    I love both of these outfits they are so lovely, I too can wear heels for about 6 hours comfortably, after that I just want to be bare foot for the rest of the day haha, but since that isn’t socially acceptable flats usually do the trick !
