Little Treat

Chanel ballet flats by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

I know that every cent I own probably should go to my apartment found at the moment but sometimes you have to spoil yourself a little bit too – or as in this case, your feet. Despite many complains and comments I’m almost always in ballet flats. Why? There’re easy, comfortable and goes with almost anything. I guess you could say that they’re what sneakers are to other people for me, so it was about time that I invested in a good pair. Hopefully I’ll dare to wear these pretty babies out and about in the (dirty) streets of Paris.

  1. Paris and dirty streets!? What are you talking about? 😀 I love these! Now I need to show it someone and get these on my birthday! 😀

    • Haha the streets here are really dirty I’m afraid… Something you wouldn’t think perhaps 😉

      • When I was there.. I saw them clean the streets early in the morning! It must have to do with the weather.. I guess its been raining a lot?

    Awesome ballet flats!

  4. Those are such cute ballet flats! I’m forever wearing mine too, they’re just so comfy easy to wear whilst still looking polished.

  5. Perfect choice… You wont regret them…. I purchase a pair of these every year, they are part of my staple closet.x

  6. These are lovely!! One day I’m going to invest in Chanel flats too… but I still have to save up a little before that can happen. 🙂

  7. oh swoon!!! Oh I bet they’re incredibly comfortable. Though I don’t know I could allow myself to even take them out of the box 🙂 x

  8. Those are darling! What a great buy!

    Great choice and investment! They are beautiful. You are absolutely right, it is necessary to spoil yourself from time to time, after working so hard you surely deserve it!

    I always agree with spoiling myself. There are never better spent money in the world that the one spent for yourself in the luxury world of fashion. Well done, enjoy them! 🙂

  11. You need to treat yourself every now and then! These are gorgeous, enjoy them! x

  16. What better to marche in the streets of Paris with? A little treat indeed 🙂

    Hi there-

    Lovely shoes! Will you give us your honest thoughts on how comfortable they are for a few hour’s wear in the city? Have you also tried Repetto? If so, which is your rec on comfort? I live in NYC and flats can make your feet hurt after walking on pavement for hours at a stretch.


  18. Those are so cute, I’d have them framed rather than walking with them in Paris.

    Amazing! These are a great investment & go with everything!!

  20. These are beautiful! Once in awhile it’s nice to indulge a little 😉

  21. They are really cute. Even when you have heels on I like that you can throw them in the bag and have an easy walk and enjoy the weather without hurting your feet in heels.

  23. Nothing makes you feel like spoiling yourself more than when you have another big financial commitment that you are pouring all your money into (all. the. time). Good on you!

    Love them! Great choice.

    They are soooo pretty and classic looking! It’s okay to splurge yourself every once in a while… 😛

    So pretty & a good buy! I have worn mine for 5 years and still going strong! One thing I found very useful for Parisian streets was to get a cobbler to attach a thin beige rubber sole to the bottom. Works great for me esp when the streets are so dirty and a scuffed leather sole really upsets me. That said, it apparently reduces the shoe’s ability to ‘breathe’ but i’d take that anytime 🙂

    Awww babe! They are so cool! You did a great job buying them!

  28. Lovely shoes. I always wear ballet flats.

    I completely agree! I own about 4 pair of heels, and each is worn approximately once a year. Ballet flats are so much more practical!


  30. Nice buy, eternally beauty !
    Good luck on your apartment hunt 😉 It’s great to see your journey 🙂

    I agree with you on the flats, you can wear it anywhere and they are just so easy to run with lol I’m pretty sure I have all the black Zara flats! Can’t have too many black ballet flats
