As a mom of three kids, I love wearing flats. They are easy to throw on, run in and they still manage to look chic. However, ballet flats can get a little boring after awhile. This summer, try kicking things up a notch with a d’orsay flat style, which leaves a cut-out in the middle of the shoe with coverage in the front and back. The d’orsay style looks great with anything from shorts to capris and comes in so many fun colors this summer that it’s a must-have for your shoe closet.
