Flats and Dresses

I used to be a heels only girl. I always loved flats on other people, just not on shorty little me. But ever since I got my first Tory Burch Reva's, I've realized that flats can be just as cute as heels. I still wear heels about 90% of the time but some outfits just call for the cute flats. I think dresses and flats are particularly hard to pull off, especially for short girls like myself. Although Lauren Conrad isn't short, I do love this outfit. I think she pulled the dress with flats combo off very well.


The key is to keep the dress fairly short so that your legs look longer but at the same time keeping the outfit classy and not trashy. The belt and the clutch are the perfect accessories to keep it looking simple and cute.

Here she is in the same sandals with the same kind of unfussy, simple look. After seeing this I want a high waisted red skirt. Too cute.

Since this post is all about Lauren Conrad, I went to check out her fall collection and this dress that I was looking for, is still not on there. Does she hoard all the good designs for herself of what?

  2. Sorry I made that last comment and posted before it was finished. I was looking for that dress too and it looks Halo but all the sites said it was her line... I think it's Halo...

  3. I like the look of high-waisted skirts too but I don't know if I can pull it off because I'm no-waisted. Hmm. I don't like looking like a sausage.

  4. I am going to find and purchase one of those high waisted skirts immediately. I love it!

    For some reason this is the first time I've seen that skirt on and not just laid out for a shoot.

  6. Ooh, I love that red skirt too. <3

    That's funny, I was looking for a black dress similar to that one a few months ago. It's such a classic and flattering shape.

  7. It took me a long time to get into flats (I'm 5'3") but now I love them! Like you said, though, it has to be with something short (or long, nothing mid-length) or they cut me up.

    Love the high-waisted skirt too :)

  8. I'm 5'4 and I am definitely a high heels girl, but I do love stylish flat sandals for the summer. Love the way they are paired with these outfits. I adore the look with long summer dresses too. I've got a few pair of Tory Burch Sandals that I love to rock.

    And I do own one pair of ballerina style flats, my Black Chanel quilted flats with the big white C's. Love them!

  9. amyerin- now that you mention it, it really does look like a black halo dress! That's silly that all the sites say it's her line.

    lrb - give high waisted skirts a try! you might like it. I have a black one that I adore. They are a lot more flattering than you would think.

    Kate - do you know what brand it is? if you get it, let me know! :)

  11. Guilty - I hear ya, it took me forever to warm up to flats. it's funny that you mention how tall you are as I always imagined you taller. Taller than me anyhow but seems like we are about the same size.

    lizy - i love the long summer dresses but I dont' think I can pull it off with flats. They are always way too long for me!

    I think I know which Chanels you are talking about. I adore those! love!!
