You Want to be Comfortable and Cute? Fine, Heres How to Do it.

Thought flat shoes couldn’t make a stylish statement? (Ok, if you had asked me this 3 years ago I would have said, “of course they can’t!”) Here’s proof that you’re wrong…and I was too! Your standard slip-on tennis shoes should be a thing of the past. Sparkles are no longer just for special occasions. You can pair your most casual jean overalls with a ponytail and these two-toned sparkly shoes and be ready for all your adventures whether you’re simply buying groceries or hanging out with friends.

There are three main characteristics that make a shoe stand out: color, print design (pattern, etc), and architecture (i.e. high heel).  These slip-on flats add color, shape, and touch of funk with a simple yet effective cloth design.

If you can’t have your uncomfortable skyscraper heel architecture, you better have the color and sparkle to make up for it!  These pink flats would definitely garner Elle Woods’ approval!

Although for many years I thought that sneakers should only be worn for exercise, these city printed Dolce & Gabbana sneakers are too cool to be limited to so few occasions.

And no, it’s not a coincidence that three of the five designs involve sparkles.  This one made it to the list because it combines sparkles, comfort, and best of all, ombre!  Once again we see that the ombre trend has no limitations.  From your hair to your shoes, let the color-changing flow freely!

It’s all about Ombre

For the past couple months I’ve been wrestling with the idea of getting an ombre look for my hair.  I was thinking my natural brown hair into blonde at the bottom.  If you don’t know what ombre is, take a look:

But I think Drew Barrymore shows it best:

Last but not least we have the lovely and alluring Olivia Wilde.  Her ombre hair is a bit more harsh and more drastic than the two featured above.  Personally I like when the ombre is subtle and natural looking. After all, the key to making yourself look beautiful, is doing it in a way that people don’t know you did it.  You want to hide the process and make the end result look as effortless as possible.

If I wasn’t so attracted to my natural hair color, I’d be quick to make an ombre look.  But for this decision, I’m taking me time.  Have you ever tried ombre? Was it a yay or nay? Share in the comments below!
