Travel Essentials: fashionable flats + giveaway #4.

Being a heels girl, I only whip out flats when absolutely necessary. That said, there are times when heels just won't fit the bill including running after my children and during a day of travel. As NYFW approaches, I'm mentally packing and editing everyday. And, if you know anything about Fashion Week, you know that every fashionable gal needs a pair of chic flats for those long walks as you sweat profusely trying to hail the same taxi that 30 other fashionistas are trying to wave at furiously. Yeah, that means those cab to curb heels need to find a comfy spot in your tote or else you better bring a first aid kit!

Here's a visual of my top rated flats for travel, Fashion Week, chasing after kiddos and beyond!

Where do you shop your favorite flats? Are any of you heading to NYFW this year?

Guess what? It's time for giveaway #4. This week is flying by! Meet Southern Angel. Originating from Florida, you'll find the most adorable pom shorts this side of Etsy. Truly, if you guys don't enter to win - I'm taking these for my closet!

Entering is easy! Good luck and don't forget about yesterday's giveaway, too!
