My love for ballet flats has been well documented (see here). And whilst I love high heels as much as any other fahion-abiding woman, when I have to spend a whole day on my feet, flats are the way to go. My brief for the perfect flat is simple: leather soles for comfort and support, a gorgeous colour that complements a plethora of outfits and preferably a pointy or oval rounded tip to elongate the legs. Cue the Max Mara Ladino in Cornflower Blue (or Gold, or Red :-))
Evoking dreams of Italian elengance in the Sixties, of summers spent in Capri with Sophia Loren, both sipping Aperol Spritz on a terrazza, this metallic blue beauty is everything I look for, and then some. A flirty skirt, a beautiful shift- or wrapdress and even a tailored pair of trousers, these couture cuties can take them on and give that touch of elegance I almost always seek. I can just see myself pairing them with this t-shirt, white denim cut-offs and this clutch for a night out with the ladies! Un Bellini per favore!
