Look, I'm wearing flats

Between all the heels, boots and booties I've been wearing recently, I seemed to have forgotten that smart flats, ie Brogues, exist, and more importantly, how comfortable they are on your feet. And I thought it was about time to get some comfortable, yet stylish shoes, especially in time for Fashion Week! I refuse to run in heels on the cobbled floors of Covent Garden more than I have to.


I love these black, velvetish brogues I got from Mel, a sister company of Melissa, so they still smell as amazing as other Melissa shoes.I have been guilty of taking off the shoes and asking friends and family to smell them. They're such a lightweight shoe, but still quite durable that they keep my feet warm and can handle some rain in this weather. And, as they're black, they really go with most of my wardrobe. I can't wait to pair the shoes with cute summery dresses as soon as it gets warmer. I also wore them all day yesterday, and anyone who follows me on Twitter, would know how long my day was yesterday. It was the first time I was wearing them properly and the shoes were on my feet for about 11 hours non stop. Not only were they super comfortable throughout, they didn't cause any blisters or even a scratch. They were that comfortable. And they still smelt great at the end of the day. 


I paired the shoes with A Wear jeans and a Topshop jumper, which, since stealing from Susie, I've become slightly obsessed with. I have to control myself from wearing it on a daily basis.


Are you a brogues person?

P.S. Fashion Week starts tomorrow. Eeeeep. I'm not sure how much of it I'll be posting onto the blog, but be sure to follow my updates on Facebook and Twitter.

I'm not a fan of flats, tbh. Oh, and if you take your shoes off in front of Somerset House or in the middle of Covent Garden and ask me to smell them, I am going to turn around, walk away and pretend not to know you, okay?!

I am definitely a fan of flats, because I have to travel a lot for work and find it unconfortable to do this in heels!
Like the ones you are wearing, I recently bought a similar pair

Dressing Up For Me said...

I missed wearing flats, unfortunately the cold weather right now doesn´t allow me to wear one.

Love this gray ensemble of yours, Sherin! :)

Oh, I am most definitely a fan of brogues and flats.
For my classes, I usually lug around a ton of books and there's just no way to walk graceful in high heels with a backpack weighing you down!
Also, our campus is huge and walking from the train to the actual lectures halls takes more than fifteen minutes!

I definitely have to pick up a couple of brogues and loafers for spring. I saw some amazing mustard ones just recently!

I love brogues, honestly they're the only shoes I wear to school these days considering my classes on Mondays and Wednesdays are like a mile apart haha. Have fun at fashion week!

It's funny because people actually comment when I don't wear heels to work! they look so cute on you! i usually tend to wear them on days I know I'll be running around a lot!

Not Just A Pretty Dress said...

I love brogue because they perfect to give a twist to girlie looks and to channel the tomboy trend. Your are really lovely and I like the fact that they look 'light' as the issue with brogues is that they may look massive on the feet...Looking forward to your posts from LFW!

Kimberlee said...

I'm definitely with you, I wore flats all for NYFW because I just couldn't do heels all day. Especially since I got mostly standing at the shows ;(

Every girl needs a good pair of flats in their life :) I like yours, and the outfit, too :)
