I’ve been in the market for a new pair of flats for a few seasons now. The climate I live in luckily allows me to wear sandals most of the year, and boots the rest of the year. But this fall this pair of cobalt suede flats from J. Crew caught my eye. The bold color, the classic shape and the quality that comes with all things J. Crew made me crave them. Luckily my mother was with me when we first spotted them in the store, but it was a few weeks before a pair in my size became available. Now that the crisper weather is finally here, I was able to take them on a test run on a trip to Tulsa this week. I took a risk and mixed the blue suede with denim with faux leather leggings and a sparkly necklace. I surprisingly struggled to find something that matched the flats that wouldn’t wrinkle too much in the car. The scarf saved me, but cobalt earrings are a must for this hue of shoe. My hunt for the perfect pair has begun!
