It is not often that you will catch me wearing flats. I am – and have been since about age 12 – a high-heels-wearer. It’s innate…possibly even coded in my genes! On occasion, though, I too will dabble in flats-wearing.
Example #1 (actually, it’s probably the ONLY example I have!!):
There are only two types of occasions that have required flats-wearing in my life:
1) During and after pregnancy (swollen feet are no match for ANY pair of high-heels!!).
2) Days when I have to run around campus, walk from building to building, or walk a long distance with bags in tow (e.g. at the ariport).
For those occasions, or when I simply cannot bear the thought of balancing the majority of my weight on the balls of your heels for more than 5 seconds (trust me though, this is rarely the case for me), I recommend the following flats:
1. The Tory Burch ‘Reva’ Ballerina Flat – Of course!! Made with a soft buttery leather, these flats are a bit uncomfortable at first; once you break in the leather though, they are quite comfy! The gold medallion adds a bit of accessorizing without it being too obnoxiously ‘bling’, in my opinion. I also like that it comes in a variety of colors! One for each outfit you say? Why not, I say!! 😉

2. If I am wearing heels to work, to the airport, or any other place really, I make sure to keep a pair of flats in my bag. Flats creators have innovated the most amazing types of flats recently…the folding flat! There are two types that I would recommend:
-The Tieks, by Gavrieli Foldable Flat. Created by a Stanford Alum (Go Cardinal!!), these flats come in about 47 different colors and styles. They come with a cute, drawstring bag for storage. Although I would probably default to a black foldable flat (especially if your base wardrobe color tends to be black), I would not shy away from this copper, textured flat, as it is also a great neutral option:

Great post, Bertha! Good to see you online, since I rarely see you on campus. I am loving your blog, even though I’m decidedly un-stylish. I’ve bookmarked you on my blog so I can keep up with you. Best of luck! Hugs to your little boys!
