Things Every Girl Needs: The perfect ballet flat

Today's guest blogger for the Things Every Girl Needs series is the lovely, newly-engaged Julie from the blog Love, Julie.  She's one of my newest blog friends and I'm so excited she's here to post about an item that I strongly agree to be a necessity year round: ballet flats


Flats are pretty much my go-to shoes for most months of the year. I think they are prefect for picnics, baseball games, parties at the pool or dinner with friends. They are also good for those occasions when you just aren't sure how formal people will be dressed and you don't want to look out of place in heels or totally under dressed in flip flops. So pretty much, I end up wearing them everywhere!

Another thing to love about flats is that there are so many different styles, colors, and patterns, you could never get tired of them all. Here are a few basics I think every girl should have:

Black Flats:  You need a pair of solid, black flats for wearing with anything from jeans to a little black dress. I love the bow on this Steven Madden pair.
Classic Flats: These ballerina flats from H&M are just perfect don't you think? They would look good with anything from jeans to a light summery skirt.
Fancy, Fun Flats: These are perfect for that outfit you really like but keep thinking, this needs a little something to spice it up. For go with something sparkly and fun like these Tory Burch Flats

Light, Girly Flats:  I have had these Sundance Ballet Flats on my dream wish list for a while now and I just love the way they look so soft and breezy.

Thanks so much, Julie!  I LOVE those Sundance flats - they're perfect!  
If you'd like to submit a post for this series, I officially have no more bloggers lined up so please send me a note and I'll get you on the calendar.  Happy Thursday!


  1. I have a serious addiction to my Gap city flats. I think I want gold next.

  2. o! i love the h&m pair! v cute :) flats are my fave. xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  3. I have a collection too! They really do go with everything; jeans to dresses. And I'd much rather spend all day in a pair of ballet flats than heels. :)

  4. Oh no! I only have two out of the four. Better get to shopping!

  7. Flats are my favorite! I love heels, but they're just not practical very often.

  8. Flats are a daily staple for me! Love these choices!

  9. I don't know what I would do with myself if I didn't have my flats! I would probably cry every night from pain from my heels (c: Those Tory Burch flats are on my lust list...and at that price I'm pretty sure that is as far as they are gonna get, but *GORGEOUS* all the same!

  10. I'm a cronic high heel girl (I literally am ALWAYS in heels!), but I might have to give into those Tory flats!

  11. Ballet flats are a girl's best friend, especially after a long night of dancing in a pair of gorgeous three inch heels. Great post, Julie!

    Nice to meet you, Haley.
