Shoes to wear with skinny jeans in sunny weather

Such a lovely day today - made me wonder what I am going to wear with my skinny jeans in the nicer weather.

DC2 is due soon and DS1 is 20 months so I need something comfortable and suitable for toddler groups, trips to the park etc.

I've never got on with ballet pumps as they just seem to make me feel as if I'm walking very flat footed. Any suggestions would be great. I have fairly small feet (size 4).

I wear flipflops, Birkenstocks or wedges with mine usually. Like the look of those espadrilles at Dotty P and the flatforms too.

Wedge trainers e.g. Ash bea or Bowie might be a spring possibility. They are less wintery than boots but warm enough that you won't regret wearing them in March. I know they're not for everyone but they really elongate your legs worn with skinnies. For the posters mentioning about having bigger feet they make your feet look dinky too.

im wondering if these

might work for me, not in my size though sad

I'm planning on getting these, as I destroy Ballet pumps. I'm hoping they'll be a bit more solid. I like to look a little bit Sloane Rangery, so I think these will work well for me.

When it's cooler I wear my Converse - good for chasing DS in. When it gets really hot it'll be brown leather sandals or haviannas flip flops.

All my pre-DS wedges are too high for toddler taming, but maybe in a year or two?

I like Birkenstocks in summer

I'm moving away from skinnies this summer. Have size 8 feet and skinny calves so look like an L in superga or ballet flats. I'm going for these shoes, or possibly some brogues, with slim fit flares.

Im dreading the summer, im currently sporting skinnies and ankle boots but i have weird long toes so cant wear anything with an open toe, pumps never fit my feet right, probably because of the long widely spaced toes!, plimsoles make me look like krusty the clown, sooo i may have to go back to the bootcut with trainers sad

I wear mine with converse. Usually high tops. I may be stuck in the style rut of a 12 year old though!

some mules maybe? smile

MarshaBrady Mon 18-Feb-13 09:28:01

Usually ballet flats, but am getting another option too this summer. Not sure what yet.

Cybbo Mon 18-Feb-13 09:25:57

Of course in my minds eye I've got beautiful tanned feet with perfect toes

Ain't ever gonna happen

Cybbo Mon 18-Feb-13 09:25:04

I like those flatform sandals , especially in metallics. They look a bit like my sandals when I was a kid

freddiefrog Mon 18-Feb-13 00:03:27

Heels, wedges, converse, flip flips, flat sandals - anything apart from my winter boots!

pomdereplay Sun 17-Feb-13 23:58:29

Supergas. Come in an array of colours so would be easy to find something fun and summery. Much prefer them to Converse.

CointreauVersial Sun 17-Feb-13 23:33:28

Flip flops.

And a flatform of amazing cheapness

Sl1nkyMalinki Sun 17-Feb-13 21:51:27

Just been looking at some flatforms, they look really nice! Would definitely like some loafers too smile

TheEarlyBird Sun 17-Feb-13 21:44:19

Ooh - please can we have some loafer links. Size 8 feet and looking for some lovely footwear!

Cremolafoam Sun 17-Feb-13 21:43:58

Flatforms are the new black apparently - so dd tells mewink

landofsoapandglory Sun 17-Feb-13 21:38:01

I wear either brogues, Converse, ballet pumps, leather flip flops, or flat sandals depending on the temperature and what I am doing that day!

PrincessOfChina Sun 17-Feb-13 21:35:40

I'm a huge ballet pump fan but fancied a bit of variation for spring so have just bought some loafers.

DP is accusing me of trying to be a hipster but I love them already. Tab with little tassels smile

They also have a bit more of a sole than ballet shoes so I'm hoping they'll keep my feet a bit warmer!

Sl1nkyMalinki Sun 17-Feb-13 21:33:06

I love my Toms in warm weather and fit flops in the summer. Hoping to get some use from my brogues too, but I have big feet to balance out my fat arse so it's always a worry that I look like a golf club confused

I also don't do ballet pumps as I'm prone to plantar fasciitis and need a good padded sole so I know exactly what you mean about feeling flat footed!

nomoreminibreaks Sun 17-Feb-13 21:32:20

I normally wear ballet pumps but I've been considering a pair of loafers for this summer. Not sure I'm cool enough though to pull it off though.

I'm definitely not cool enough for brogues (plus with size 8 feet I'd look ridiculous).

Beaverfeaver Sun 17-Feb-13 21:29:10

In summer I wear my skinnies with either open toe & heel ankle boots or with flat sandals depending on if its day or night.

I am either open toes or ankle boots.
Mh ate trainers, ballet pumps, brogues or anything else inbetween
