Shoe Diaries: Red Flats

I have never been a big fan of flats but as my feet age and my kids become faster I have started to seek out some comfortable, yet stylish, flats.  And when I saw these red flats at Winners I knew they would be a perfect addition to my new, more practical shoe wardrobe.  Sure they were only $49, but thats not what sold me.  They are super comfortable, I love the pointed toe and they are that perfect shade of candy apple red.

I got these at Winners and you all know what that means – sorry.  But I found a similar pair at TopShop (only $58).

As I add to my shoe collection, my goal is to pick shoes that will work with the majority of my daily wardrobe. And the red flats do not disappoint, they are super versatile, not to mention a classic.  I have included a few styling options below to show how versatile they really are.

Casual Nautical: First up is what I am calling casual nautical.  This is such a classic, preppy look.  And this look really lets the red shoe shine.  I am in love with this bag as well.  It’s definitely a more trendy piece but will work with so many outfits this spring/summer. Items linked below.  And all are available to shop online with free shipping and returns (with a min spend) with the exception of Nordstrom.  In Canada its typically cheaper to buy instore.

Shades of Pink: With a red shoe, I am always wary of wearing too much colour.  Too much colour can appear a little costumey.  And wearing red with red can be a little too matchy.  This is why I love wearing shades of pink with red.

Side note: I also love to throw on a blazer with a pair of denim cut offs to give me a little more coverage.

Linen Shirt Dress: I am in love with this dress.  The lightweight linen fabric and fuss free tailoring makes it perfect for the beach but you could totally dress it up for the office with a pair of heels.  You are more likely to find me at the beach or park so that is the look I have included.
