I know you’ve heard me say this before but heels and kids, don’t always mix. Flats, however, are an essential part of every busy mom’s wardrobe. This season the ballet flat gets a major makeover, better known as the D’Orsay flat. The D’Orsay flat is similar to a ballet flat but the middle section of the shoe is cut-out and makes for a very sexy and sassy shoe that can go with anything from boyfriend jeans and a tee to a mini skirt and a blazer. There are so many variations of the D’Orsay flat that you can’t really go wrong with any of the current styles but for extra style, try a pair with an ankle strap or a metallic color blocked style.
