As I have mentioned on my blog before, since the car accident I was involved in a few weeks ago, I've found it hard to wear heels. This is a blow for me, as I love my heels! But the backache I get from them makes it not worth the stylish looks, sad to say. So this has made me look at flat shoe alternatives-I posted about some really cute flat boots the other week and I've obviously been rocking my Koah strappy flats when the sun's been out.
But one gaping hole in my shoe collection deserves to be filled by a ballet flat. This humble pump, beloved of Kate Moss and pretty much the best shoe-option to fully complement a skinny jean is not only comfortable but also completely chic. Taking notes from the Catwalks of SS11, balletic influences were everywhere, from tutu skirts and wrap cardigans to the stalwart of the trend-the ballet-styled shoe. And what better way to dip a toe into this trend than to choose a classic and stylish piece of footwear.
Prints and quirky details make the basic ballet pump come alive. Animal prints, block colours, studs and chains will make your shoes the focus of your look and breathe life into simple shapes, making clean cuts more directional.

All these gorgeous pumps, and many more, can be found over on Spartoo! What's your take on the humble pump? Do you wear them?

So sorry to hear about your accident.... Ballet flats are great, really chic - even better if they are embellished in some way. By the by, I don't know where you are in the UK, but I always go to Bang Bang Clothing Exchange in London whenever I'm there, pretty good swapshop! xx

I love the pattern on that last pair of Bloch pumps, it's so delicate and lovely.

And I'm sorry about your accident, I hope you're back in heels and feeling better soon! x

I basically live in pumps. I only ever really wear flat shoes & have got a rather large (ok, huge) collection! It's shameful actually, how many pairs of shoes I've got :/

However, I don't have any like that first pair & man do I want them! They are TOO cute :)

Thanks for your comment btw. Made me laugh that you asked if it was OPI.. Was actually an E.L.F colour (Mod Mauve £1.50), that I didn't really like once on, so put a load of silver glitter over the top. I think the glitter was Eyeko Disco Polish.. I wasn't sure if I was keen on that look, but it got lots of comments from people! And I like it more now you've asked it if was OPI!
