Fun flats for fall and alliterations all around...

Happy Monday and even happier Monday to those of us not currently in the office (I can never say that so let me have my moment.) The wedding this weekend was...interesting. Think North Carolina mountains, lots of "hippies" and moonshine. You get the picture.
I'm currently at my sister's house with B and the pups recovering. I'll be back to normal blogging on Wednesday, but until then I compiled a little list of shoes that I'm wanting for the fall. My foot is still "injured" so I'm sticking to flats under $100, of course.
Purple is an easy neutral and the patent leather on these ups the ante on the cute factor.
Tee Dee in Patent Purple $69
via Chinese Laundry
Simple, basic, classic and so chic with skinny jeans.
Mia Hepburn $70
via Piperlime
This is not your average flat but I'm willing to bet the "cracked pewter" look is super easy to wear.
Seychelles Boy Short $80
via Piperlime
These look really comfy and the ankle wrap is perfect for skirts and dresses.
Leather ankle wrap skimmer $48
via UO
I love you sea foam and I want you as a shoe.
Kimchi blue suede ballet flat $34
via UO
Perfect fall shoe in a cheeky houndstooth print.
Multi-colored bow houndstooth ballet flat $45
via Gap
I'm lying low for the next couple of days but I'll be sure to respond to e-mails and comments as soon as I can. Until then, don't forget to enter the latest giveaway here. I'll be choosing a winner Wednesday morning (7/29) instead of Tuesday night b/c B and I will be traveling home.
I miss you bloggie friends!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

loving the sea foam flats! yummy!

christina said...

I don't have any purple ones yet...I may just need those. And the ankle wraps are super cute!

drollgirl said...

well i hope you had fun at the wedding! weddings are so strange. i have yet to go to a wedding where i can have a drink. GO FIGURE. clearly i need a different family or more friends to get married to enjoy THAT part of weddings! :)

and love your shoe choices. i pretty much stick with flats with my gimpy ankle, and it is just easier and more comfortable. maybe someday we can do wedges or heels again! :0

hope all is well! :)

Magchunk said...

Those seafoam suede ones are too cute. I think Ryan would get mad at me though if I actually bought them... I've been doing a lot of flats-buying-but-not-wearing lately :) Too lazy to break any of them in!

Hanako66 said...

they are all cute, but I really love the first and third pairs!!!!

have a safe trip home!

Rachel said...

I love flats. In a ridiculous way. And I really love those seafoam flats!!

Southern Aspirations said...

LOVE the top pair, especially!

Anna said...

Great picks! Love those leather ankle wraps, too :)

xo

The Haute-Shopper said...

Oooh, these are gorgeous. I love the first and last pair especially. I collect flats like a crazy person -I've started being lazy and relying on cute ones to pep up my outfit, but I've given up trying to walk around town in heels all day.

Kristen Sara said...

The purple flats are my fave... mostly because they're purple. Safe travels!

Gabbi said...

Wedding sounds like fun and the shoes are so cute! I love a good flat and those Seychelles look comfy... really like the two different colors.

The Professional Bridesmaid said...

I'm in love with the first pair! Probably b/c they're purple. So cute.

Gabby said...

Moonshine always makes a weekend interesting! :) That first pair are my fave...adding them to the wish list now.

Iva said...

Enjoy the time with your family!

Piper Jacquelyn said...

Love the leather ankle wraps & the houndstooth pair. And moonshine, huh? Definitely sounds interesting!!

Yansy said...

I love flats, Tory Burch are my favorite. The Kimchi blue are also fabulous. I hope you are having a nice and relaxing day!

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

They are all GORGEOUS!!! How could you pick just one?:) The Leather ankle wrap just may be my favorite? Also loving the houndstooth flats!!! They are all way cute!

nicole addison said...

ohh i love the houndstooth ones. soo cute!

Anne @ The City Sage said...

UO strikes again! I love all the shoes they have---they really have cornered the market on unique, affordable flats. Great finds!

Sam said...

Oh! So sorry to hear that foot is still injured! It's very difficult when you are an active person and something like that prevents you from bouncing around as usual. Poor foot. Healing thoughts for foot! I love the top purple pumps BTW - very Audrey Hepburnesque!

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

loooooooove 2 - 4! lol

Diana said...

i'll take them all! but seriously, thanks for the links! it *is* hard to find cute flats that won't make your feet smell or fall apart under $100

Callie Grayson said...

moonshine! hmmm fun until the second jar!

those purple flats are rocking and the ankle wrap is really rocking!!!

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Thanks Christina, another reason that we don't have to spend lots of $$$ to look comfy & chic! My fave is that 'Leather ankle wrap skimmer'

xo*

LiLu said...

That first purple shoes!!! I just fell in lurrrrve

Kotori said...

Moonshine? Well, you're definitely going to have to blog more details on this one my friend! Glad you're getting a few days off... enjoy your time!

Oh, and great list of shoes!

PS~Erin said...

Nice selection there!

Enjoy your time off!!

Kristin said...

The Seychelles want to be mine!

Jillian said...

Love love love the purple flats. I can't wait for fall. Fall style in general is so much cuter than summer, in my opinion.

Being Brazen said...

I adore the patent purple pumps..

TheDecoDetective said...

It does sound like a slightly weird wedding!
Btw, what's the deal with ankle wrap sandals? I recently saw some that went all the way up to the knee. Not just ribbons, but actual wrapping. I thought the idea with sandals was to have something to wear when the weather's too hot for shoes??

Lily G. said...

Cute! I love ballet flats!

ana b. said...

What happened to your foot, love?! Did you do RICE? I like those flats with the ankle tie. I must get myself some like it for summer.

Mod Podge Amy said...

LOVe those purple ones!! Thanks for posting this - it's awesome :D

captivate me. said...

ha ha, "interesting" weddings always have the best stories :-) Glad you enjoyed your monday off! Loving those sea-foam suede flats . . .

indigotangerine said...

Sorry your foot still has you down. It gets old after awhile.
