Adorable Flats for Spring at

While it's safe to say that warm weather is here to stay, there are still those days when your toes still get a little nippy in flip-flops. A nice alternative to the uber-comfortable flip-flops is the ballet flat or skimmer. They look just as good with those cute skirts, crops or jeans, but they keep your toes warmer without making your feet sweat. Here are a few of my favorite ballet flats/skimmers from Me Too Early If you love the metallic trend that sweeping the country (again) this season, you'll love these fashionable slingback flats from Me Too. Features include a multi-strap toe box, an elasticized sling to ensure fit, slightly rounded front for comfort and a flat footbed. Available in Gold Marbled Metallic Goat (shown) and Bronze Marbled Metallic Goat; sizes 6-11. Aerosoles Frillie Pepper I like the idea of this feminine flat from Aerosoles in this neutral bone with gold trim. Seriously, what can't you wear it with? This versatile leather flat is buttery soft, with gold scalloped edge and lacing detai. Faux suede sock lining and extra-cushioned insole for added comfort. Ultra-flexible two-piece rubber sole with covered 1/2" heel. Available in Bone Combo (shown), Black Combo, Dark Orange Combo and Light Green Combo; sizes 5-12. Bronx Ulli 63718 Want something a little funky and retro? Try these two-piece flats from Bronx. The round toe is covered with woven leather on the sides, while the heel cup has an ankle strap to hold your foot in place. Available in this neutral Black/Terra Vernice/Wind (shown) in sizes 6-11. Coloriffics Pretty Another metallic flat, this one is a more dressier silver version by Coloriffics. Simple, smooth and comfortable. Slip into this elegant dress slipper with flat flex sole for a beach wedding, or simply for a day out. Features a cute bow detail on front. Available in Silver Smooth (shown) in sizes 6-11. Indigo by Clarks Cristo This flat by Indigo is all about the features. Has elastic straps on the vamp and on the heel to hold your foot securely and snugly without being restrictive. Rich colors and quality leather make this shoe a must have accessory. Available in Sandstone Leather (shown), Black Leather, Cerulean Leather, Cherrywood Leather, and Coral Sandstone; sizes 5-12. Etienne Aigner Advise If you want something a little more country, this fun skimmer by Etienne Aigner is the one for you. Features include a rounded toe box for added comfort, metal and leather ornamentation, and a light fabric upper. Available in Pale Blue/Off White (shown), Pale Pink/Off White, Off White/Saddle and Celery/Linen; sizes 6-11. Royal Elastics Nu Florin A sporty take in the ballet flat, the Nu Florin by Royal Elastics features a light upper with sneaker-like contrast stitching, combination full grain leather, die-cut EVA midsole, and a molded rubber outsole. Available in White/Charcoal (shown) and Black/White; sizes 6-10. Keds Knack Embroidery No one does preppy casual better than Keds, as demonstrated by these simple skimmers. The Keds Knack is comfortable, stylish and goes with everything. I personally love the Poppy Red Canvas for an 'eye-popping' look; also available in Black Canvas, Peri Blue Canvas and White Smoke Canvas; sizes 6-11.
