Shopping Guide: 10 Pairs Of Perfect Spring Flats

Is that the chirping of birds I hear? Oh, it is, and you know what that means — spring has sprung, babes. I’m going bare-legged today, and it couldn’t possibly feel any better … not like we had a long winter, or a winter at all, actually. Like many people with a neurotic personality complex, I am terrified of this global warming stuff (despite knowing next to nothing about it scientifically) and the distinct possibility of a hell-blazing summer, but it’s soooooo nice out I’m going to worry myself sick over it later. Yay!

Anyway, one of the best things about the temperature rising is not having to wear thick socks and leather boots. I love me some ankle freedom, but being the public transportation-using city slicker that I am, I tend to save my sandals for weekends in Connecticut or all of those tropical vacations I go on. I can’t stand grimy soles, my toes being stepped on, et al, so it’s all flat shoes from here on out. Whether they’re ballet flats, smoking slippers, or some hip Oxfords, check out these 10 pairs of perfect flats at a range of prices, regardless of whether you’re a pavement-pounding urbanite or a laid-back country girl.

I hate wearing sunscreen, which is particularly unfortunate when you consider that I have the whitest, most translucent, most easily burnt skin this side of hole in the ozone layer. I rarely sunbathe, given that as a mole creature I shrivel when exposed to sunlight, but I will admit to a few incidents when I was in high school that involved careless “tanning” with Italian friends whose skin bronzed to perfection in the rays. I basked enviously that afternoon, confident that I, too, would grow tan if I followed their lead. Wrong. So wrong. I’ll spare you the details, but I was vivid, unmistakable scarlet by nightfall, and I still have residual freckles from the incident. It’s a wonderful recipe for skin cancer, which I sincerely hope I do not get. Keep reading »
