Style: Ballerina

The "Olga" ballerina in nappa leather, by Chloé.

Arguably flats are one of the most classic accessories a lady could ever own. They are the ideal for so many occasions and a personal closet favorite. A good pair of fitted leather flats can last for quite a number of years, if taken care of, and serve a number of purposes and different looks: the perfect finish to your skinny jean look, a simple statement with a fluttery Summer dress, a sweet addition with great little shorts, and of course, amazing with a delicate long skirt and other such pieces, as you see above... my very favorite pair of plain black flats are nearly worn out, but I admit that I am looking forward to purchasing a pair of two-tone Bloch flats very soon as a replacement. What do you like to wear with flats?

  1. Being a retired ballerina=(, this style speaks to me. Simple, elegant, so beautiful when it moves, and classic. Love this. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Beautiful collection to introduce flats, I think with flats something definitely classic and demure, an outfit that doesn't speak too loudly!

  3. I too look forward to purchasing Bloch flats very soon :) which I will wear with pretty much any outfit in my wardrobe when I want my feet to be their most comfortable :)

    Such a beautiful post

  4. I just found myself RACING to the bottom of the post to see whose show it was...of course, Chloe. AMAZING! I adore ballerina style. The chignons are to die for! Have a lovely weekend, Sarah!!

  5. Hi Sarah - oh these are just gorgeous. I find myself inexplicably drawn to all things ballet - but when ballet and high fashion collide - Oh thank you Chloe! So simple and classic. Lou x

  6. Love the Chloe ballet flats. Love to be able to wear the white fitted dress.
    Gorgeous as usual, Sarah.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. The Beauty File: too funny! Chloé is such a favorite...

  8. So beautiful and so chic! I would love to wear nearly all of these dresses!

  9. Oh the pictures you have included are just perfect!

    I wear my ballet flats with skinny legs and knee length summer dresses.
