Keeping It Casual - 16 (Link-up)

Francesca's blouse (old), F21 blazer, shorts, and sunglasses, BCBGeneration flats, Croft and Barrow tote via Kohls

I've mentioned before about my love for heels but ever since I got these cute bow flats, I've been trying to think of more ways to wear them. I might have to break my 'no flats with jeans' rule and wear them with my skinny jeans soon.

  24. You are a girl after my own heart. I love that you have a "no flats with jeans" rule. But I agree...those flats with pretty bows might make it easier to break that rule :)

  41. For some reason I am always afraid to wear a complete light look but I love how you play with different textures here Amy, takes your ensemble to another level. PLUS how pretty is your long hair? You should wear it open more OFTEN :-)

    PS: Flats with skinnies are super super cute especially with those bow flats :-) GO for it Girl :-D

  43. Hi there! I think you still look amazingly gorgeous on flats. I certainly love your outfit and flats, especialy their colors. Sometimes its just so tiring wearing high heels everyday right? So I think we have to use flats sometimes just to give our stressed feet a moment to relax, don’t you think?
