Payday Pretty | BYOB – Flats, Fabulous Flats

Welcome to week two of BYOB – Build Your Outfit Basics. 

Each Friday in December I’ll be featuring a different outfit builder from my Five Wardrobe Basics for Real Moms post.  If you missed week one’s BYOB it was all about skinny jeans, you can find it HERE. Follow along every week and build your own wardrobe or update some of your old favorites.

This week’s outfit builder is one of my favorites…FLATS!   Two years ago, the only pair of flats I owned was my running shoes.  Holy moly! Then I started working from home full-time and my whole wardrobe shifted, especially my footwear.  Now I have a pair of flats in almost every color and style imagineable and I don’t know what I’d do without them.  Heels be damned, I’m a flats girl now!

You asked and I’m listening.  Going forward, there will be three different price points for Payday Pretty inspiration – $20 and under,  $50 and under and $100 and under.  It’s all up to you what you want to take out of the budget for your Payday Pretty.  Like me, many of you like to mix high with low so I’m going to offer you options to do the same!

Here are this week’s picks for my favorite flats.
