After a brief text-versation with another shoe-loving Style Darling, I was reminded that it’s been waaaay too long since I’ve last visited Nine West. It hurts a little to see all the stylish, new spring designs since I’m restricted from spending money on anything that isn’t a necessity. As some of you may already know, I’ve recently started a new full-time writing job (clicky!) in Brooklyn & that requires a financial investment in commuting from Long Island.
In doing so, I’ve reunited with my flats on a more full-time basis, which makes all my other work-friendly high heels a little jealous. However, as I trek on & off train & subway platforms, I have to think about function before fashion. Then again, when it comes to comfortable ballet flats that meet my style needs, that’s not really an issue, especially when there are so many beautiful creations for sale right now @Nine West.
I was super excited to find the Berhta flats ($27.60) in multi grey synthetic, especially because they’re in a black & white animal print- always a must-have if you ask me! This style of flat is also available in different colors of leather, textures, sparkling hues, & other prints, but these are the only pair that have been marked down from their original $69.00 price tag!
I love that these flats are perfect to wear as a contrasting pattern to a belted polka-dotted dress for the weekend, with a cardigan & jeans for running errands during the day, or with a brightly colored blouse & a-line skirt outfit for the office. They’re a subtle way to add some dimension to your look if you wanna stay chic & minimal. This pattern is also fabulous with bold, eye-catching colors like marigold, cobalt, & kelly green- which are all hot for this coming spring!
