Wardrobe Staple: The Nude Flat

No matter what time of year it is the nude flat is a wardrobe staple.  I recently slid into my trusty pair only to find them too small.  What?! I had to find a new pair and in fact, saw a seriously cute set on a girl walking down the street one day in downtown DC.  I asked her who made them and wasn't surprised to hear it was Sam Edelman.  I quickly logged onto Shopbop and picked up my own new pair.  They are super soft, with a bit of cushion and a classic ballerina flat.  I adore them.

I cannot wait to pair these Michael Kors Daisy Moccasins with not just jeans but other types of denim like white, black, gray and even a pair of chinos.  They'll look cute with a stripe dress too.  You can find more ways to wear them here.
