On my mind: d'Orsay Flats

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to study in Paris for two weeks before this past spring semester started. One of my favorite parts of the visit (which is hard to narrow down, believe you me!) was the Musee d'Orsay. It is a lot of impressionism, which is my favorite. It's also the perfect size. Unlike the Louvre or the Met, you spend the exact amount of time that you want to spend in the museum and by the time you're ready to get out of there, you've seen everything! Not only is the art beautiful, I'm neglecting to mention one of the most interesting parts - it was converted into a museum from a train station. The old clocks are still intact too! Why does this matter? I've been yakking on and on about a museum and this is a style post. Well, one of the newest shoe trends for fall is d'Orsay flats! They're beautiful and chic. Read on for some of my favorite picks!

d'Orsay flats are my favorite new silhouettes for flats! I do love traditional ballet flats, but my dance tendencies are a huge reason that I actually prefer this silhouette to regular ballerinas! The reason is that these lovely shoes show off your arch and flatter your foot in a way that typical flats do not. They're fresh, elegant, and can be dressed up or down which is brilliant. They work every which way: metallics, solids, colorblocking, patterns, embellishments, ankle straps - everything when put into a d'Orsay flat has the potential to be chic and Parisian in all of the right ways.
