When I was younger, I always used to make fun of my mom for her collection of pointy-toed shoes. Once I started working, I realized that they were the easiest way to pull an outfit together, and I grew my collection of pointy-toed heels. I still have some of those, but I don't wear them nearly as often now.
When I got pregnant with Caleb, pointy-toed flats became my go to shoes for work. And now that I'm home, I slip on a pair whenever I want to feel put together but still comfortable. The collection is always growing, and I have some in every price range.
They easily make a blah outfit chic and way more polished. They're appropriate for nearly every situation, and I'm more stable on my feet, which is a necessity to run after my little guy.
The ones pictured above are my favorites! From top, clockwise: Valentino, Dr. Scholls, Nine West, BCBG (similar here and here), Old Navy (similar here).
