I’ve had such great luck with shoes lately that I couldn’t hold it in any longer. I just have to share these beauties with you not only because they look nice, but because they’re wallet friendly, too. All the options below are around $35 or less!
These flats are my new favorites for work. As much as I love heels, I try and take care of my feet by switching between flats and heels every other day. The simple pointed toe is so easy to wear, and they’re comfortable for a full day at the office. They come in 5 colors, including the leopard print that I wore with a floral midi in this post. The cost depends on your shoe size and the color you want, but all 3 that I ordered were under $11!
They’re pretty thin and flexible, which is what makes them comfortable, but I wouldn’t buy these with the expectation that they will last you several years. If you need a shoe with support or cushion, these aren’t for you. I found them to be true to size.

I bought these shoes as a compromise. I had been lusting after these strappy Steve Maddens for awhile, but they were so impractical I couldn’t justify it. For one, they were too high for work, and secondly, the skinny heel would be destroyed by the cobblestone streets here. When I found these similar heels, I was happy to have the same strappy look with a lower and chunkier heel. What I love most about these is that they’re polished enough for the office, but also fun for the weekend. They come in 5 colors, and I’m trying very hard not to order the burgundy and brown. We’ll see if my willpower holds out!
They passed the comfort test, but I was surprised to find that they run slightly large. I am typically a true 8.5, or a 9 when half sizes aren’t carried. I ordered an 8.5 in these and found them to be big enough that I contemplated returning them for an 8, but ultimately decided the 8 would be just a little too small. If you’re between sizes I would recommend a half size down. Priced around $25.

So I already have a post dedicated to these canvas sneakers, but I just had to give them some more love. I’ll hit the highlights: they’re $12.99, great for long days on your feet, and come in white, black, navy, floral, and a blue and white pattern. Just get yourself a pair already so I can get off my sneaker soapbox!

Last but not least are these Chinese Laundry fringe beauties. I’ve had them for awhile, but have been waiting for the weather to warm up so I can get my fringe on. When I see fringe and suede together I think of Coachella fashion and festival wear, but I’m determined to wear these to work in an appropriate way. Once I figure it out I’ll be sure to share! What’s wonderful about these is they make a great transition from summer to fall, as the suede and bootie style is more common for autumn, but the cutouts keep your feet cool in warm weather.
These fit true to size and seem fairly comfortable, but I need to wear them more to give a true verdict. The price varies depending on your shoe size and the color you want, but they’re around $35.
