Flats love

Madewell's sidewalk skimmers are all adorable, but the polka dots have stolen my heart. How adorable are they? Would love to wear them to the playground and brunches in the West Village this spring.

Rachel said...

oh, I love the sidewalk skimmer! I tend to have a thing for stripes though :)

Emily said...

Very cute. Although for something I plan on wearing everyday, and probably wearing into the ground, I'll be finding a more cost friendly version.

Jenn @ PSP said...

Yes please. I'll take both/all.

I have the second pair and I can't wait to wear them this spring and feel all French:) They are so adorable, aren't they? Have a great one, Joanna. xo

Ooo I love the cheetah print ones. I have a few flats but they make me feel even shorter when I wear them. Lol.

Madewell continues to make the world a lovelier place with their oh so lively design. I love these flats. Did you see the design they did for keds. Be still my beating, needing heart.

I think I'm partial to the leopard print. I saw a similar Tory Burch pair last week. I love Madewell, I'll have to stop by their site soon to see what else is new. Thanks for sharing!

Oooh I need some leopard ones and red ones. I love my blue ones that are the same color as my jeans; they make my legs look longer like nude shoes with skirts/dresses!

I thought j crews flats had me at hello...but these...these take the cake! Tres chic!

Becca said...

I have the top ones and literally have to stop myself from wearing them every day. I also like that the fur (hair? ew, I feel like hair sounds creepy) stays put as opposed to looking baldish.

I love flats. As sexy as heels are, flats are far more practical. They really don't get as much praise as they should.

Katie said...

Love these! Especially those leopard print ones! They'd be the perfect shopping splurge during my clothing hiatus for lent.

ps. Jo those polka dots are dying for a red striped shirt to be paired with!

Brittany Messner said...

Cute! I have a major obsession with ballet flats! One's with pointed toes are the best! I would definitely wear either of these with a pretty dress and jacket ;) xx -b.

Lori from a Family's Life said...

Joanna I really wish you would disclose posts that contain products you receive compensation for, including affiliate links (as in the above post). It diminishes my trust in your recommendations and, at least for me, raises ethical issues. I am not positive, but I also think failing to do so is against the law. I understand you need to make money, but please do so with the knowledge of your readers (beyond a vague blurb in the bottom corner of your blog).

stephanie said...

i currently have the leopard ones on my feet. love them!

Dear Miss Anonymous,

I am quite sure that Joanna does not receive compensation for reccs she makes, and if she does, the disclosure she has on the side is well more than enough. It's exactly what the Better Business bureau recommends for stores to have in sight of the cash register regarding their policies.

Does anyone know if the Madwell skimmers are true to size? I'm hesitant to order them online without someone vouching for that they fit properly!

Mabel and Zora said...

Cute shoes!

Lorena said...

love polka dots in that flats!

Jolie Goodnight said...

What I love about polka dotted flats is that they go with everything (even other patterns.) They function like a neutral, but with more pzazz!

little sarah said...

They ARE cute.. but I can't wear flats! I have wide feet and they look silly in flats and they don't ever feel comfortabl. They either slip off my feet too easily.. or are too tight!

alissa b said...

I love the motion of the Muybridge animation. It's lovely and the woman is playful and beautiful in it. I'd love that print.

Allie said...

they are both so adorable! i'm more partial to the leopard but that's because I've been wanting leopard print flats for months now! These look so cute and comfy that I think they would be functional for almost any activity and go with any outfit!

hello, Friday said...

Very cute!

Sammi said...

I am a flatty's fan. I adore those polka dot ones. My favourite ones were black ones with white skulls on, though I wore those out years ago. My current favourites are a beautiful floral pair I bought in Fuerteventura in a store called Blanco for 11€

Sunshine said...

Those are adorable!

I am sort of growing fond of leopard print. It may only be because it's been stuffed down my throat for several years now.

Polka dots never go out of style! I have a black/white high heel pair that I always match with jeans :)

kaela said...

Pretty flats. It's about I go shopping for new ones. I've nearly worn a whole in the ones I'm wearing now, since they're so comfy.

Hmmm.. I thought they were cute initially, but as with J Crew when the origin says "import" it typically means made in China. The J Crew flats are usually made in Italy and say so. Personally, I find the quality much higher if made in Italy!

Meg at This Weekend Life said...

Those are cute, but have you seen the ballet flats from Tom's? They have a leopard print pair. The ones I bought are more of a classic style, burlap with a black toe and heel. I love how they look, they're super comfy, plus I feel all warm and gooey considering their whole One for One premise. They fit a little on the large side, though, FYI.
