spring staple: the neutral flat

sure, spring is all about color…but i want to talk about neutrals for a moment.  a perfect neutral shoe is the unsung hero of a bright wardrobe.  pair it with your boldest color combo, never having to worry whether you have shoes that will work.  or wear them instead of sandals with the simplest of summer outfits – denim cutoffs and a slouchy tee – and instantly add a bit of unexpected chic to the look.

i’ve been hunting for my perfect neutral flat for longer than i care to admit, but i’ve finally found it in bloch london’s arabian ballerina flat in fossil.

after some close comparisons, i can tell you the color is identical to another favorite of mine, etoupe by hermes.  it’s this wonderful, warm, elephant-hued taupe that flatters any skin tone, works with literally any color you could conjure, but doesn’t disappear like a typical nude or tan shoe would.  plus, they’re incredibly comfy, and are lined with pretty pink suede, which makes them feel utterly decadent every time you put them on.  and at $119, these fall quite nicely into the “obtainable luxe” category.

my only tip with bloch:  they run at least a half size small.  i sized up a full size, and it worked out perfectly.  thank goodness for barefoot tess – there’s no way i would have found these pretties in a 42 any other way!  of course, if you’re in the smaller sized shoe world, you can pick them up right here.

beautiful ballets from bloch london

okay, i swear i wasn’t planning for that to be as alliterative as it turned out.  

anyway, when i was in hawaii last month, i stopped by chanel (hey, i was on vacation), where i spied the most lovely new rendition of their classic cap-toed ballet flat.  mirrored silver with patent black details, exclusive to the hawaii store….and sold out in my size.  tragedy!

ever since, i’ve been a little overly obsessed with picking up a chanel flat.  my wallet, however, disagrees.  so i was thrilled to find these new stylish flats from bloch london, all of which average about $150 (rather than the $500+ i’d drop on the chanel version).  

while i love many of their styles, it’s the cap-toe version that first caught my eye, and that fuchsia/black combo is destined for my shoe closet.  but i’m also loving their foldable classic flat – i’ve tried to track something down like this for the longest time, and suddenly i have all of these options at my fingertips!  and that fun tri-color version is going to be the perfect accent to my spring wardrobe – it’s one of those great transitional pieces you can use to accessorize your winter wardrobe into warmer weather.

check out all of the styles (i warn you, tread lightly…not all are as stylish as these) at endless, where you’ll have the added benefit of (near) instant gratification!
