In search of the perfect black flats

I love me a little black flat with a bit of flair. I had a pair a couple years ago that I loved and lost. Now the Target pair I’m wearing is about to fall apart (the inside sole is all a mess). So, I’ve been scoping out some of my favorite black flats and these are the ones I really like!

I love this one by Blowfish of Malibu called Smooth. Modern, cute, and fun. I just wish they didn’t have to put their logo all over the place on the shoe.

This one called Segment is also by Blowfish of Malibu. The buttons remind me of a trusted denim jacket. I approve 🙂

These Jellypop Raindrop shoes are playful too and I love the mix of textures and shapes.

And Rocket Dogs continue to be one of my favorite brands. These Rocket Dog Memories actually look a lot like the flats I currently have, so I’m not so sure about them.

Vintage Sam and Libbys
Then again, I could always go for vintage! These are the same Sam and Libby flats I wore in 7th grade. Did you ever have a pair of these?

Until next time Swellions!

    I own the Blowfish “Segment” ones and I love them! They’ve become my go-to flats.

    And the logo is barely noticeable…In fact, I didn’t even know there was a logo on them ’til you pointed it out! 🙂

    Happy shopping!
