I love a good heel, particularly a pointed-toe high heel (can you tell?). But one of my secrets to hitting my mid-week stride (and the reason why I’m almost always carrying a big bag) is that I carry the perfect flat for every heel – interchangeable shoes for when I’ll be running around more than usual.
These go-to pairings make it easy for me to run out the door (literally) without compromising my feet. And the goal is to always know that regardless of the outfit, the flat pairing will always work as a replacement for the heel: feminine, polished and professional. I love the pair I’m wearing (found at Nordstrom!) because it’ll work as a stand-in for my black pumps, brown pumps or navy pumps. And as always, versatility wins.
Here are some go-to pairings:
- The classic black pumps (my favorite options at every price: under $150, under $300, $500 or over) + a feminine ballet flat (like here and here)
- Fall’s deep chestnut hue (like here and here) + a loafer (like this one or a mule version here)
- The new nude aka blush suede pumps (save on this version or splurge on this version) + a flexible sole flat (like this one or this one)
PS: These wool ankle pants are perfect for travel + work – they’re comfy like lounge pants (with an elastic waistband) but still look tailored and polished.
Thank you Nordstrom for partnering with me on this post!
