CHAMBORD Fleur De Lis™ recipe

Although most nights after work you might prefer to head home, eat dinner and relax in front of the TV in your sweats, there are probably the occasional after-work events that you and your friends plan, like happy hour. The trick here is seamlessly transitioning your outfit from one extreme to the other: from work to happy hour.
First, we start off with a colorful, basic dress like this green one. Adding a structured blazer, classic pearl earrings and patent black heels abide by the typical office dress code and offer a professional look. For drinks with friends after work, add on a fun statement necklace, a few extra coats of mascara and slip off the painful heels and slip into the super comfortable Fit in Clouds black bow tie flats. Since they easily fold up, you can slip them into your cute floral purse when not in use!

Hello Fit In Clouds readers! Today I am so excited to be sharing my summer must-haves with you. I am absolutely obsessed with Fit In Clouds flats, and I think they’re perfect for many occasions, my favorite being summer date night. Summer is all about being comfortable, so my first instinct is to throw on comfy, chic flats rather than some sky-high wedges or stilettos. I love the idea of pairing the gold flats with a colorful shift dress and a great bag + gold accessories – this is my dream outfit for a perfect, warm weather date night! Enjoy.

It’s about that time of year again for college formals. With my sorority’s spring formal coming up, I can’t help but think about dress shopping. I spotted this French Connection dress online a while ago and instantly fell in love. It would be perfect for any spring or summer party. Shoe shopping is another story though… No matter how comfortable the heels seem to be in the store, my feet are always killing me by the end of the night. These silver Fit in Clouds flats seem like the perfect solution. I would much rather carry a pair of flats in my purse for the night than end up walking around barefoot!
Today’s guest post is from Grace Waters of Living with Grace, an Austin based fashion and lifestyle blog inspired by a college student’s love for fashion, photography and design.
