One of my fave trends hands down....all the way down to my grateful feet is the smoking slipper. This fabulous footwear has been making shoe shopping fun again. For years, I was a heels-uber-alles kinda girl, but no longer - and really, there aren't many occasions in life when flats aren't perfectly fine. But not just any flats. Cute isn't optional. Neither is quality. Charles Philip Shanghai makes these by hand, padding the sole and lining the interior for comfort. I also love the gold finish because that means there's not much in the closet they won't go with. Here, I paired them with some breezy wide-leg pants in a cotton stripe - 'cuz stripes and prints just look so cute & cheery with touches of brights, neons & metallics.
