Freckles in April: The Wednesday Want

The Wednesday Want



A couple years ago Real Simple featured a blue and white striped wedge and said it was from TOMS. I spent over an hour frantically trying to figure out how to get my hands on a pair. They were exactly what I had been looking for but it turned out they hadn't even been released. I put myself on the notification list and patiently(ish) saved my pennies and waited for them to become available online. I think I got a pair on the very first day they were available and I've worn the heck out of them ever since.

Well, looks like I'll be doing that again.

TOMS is releasing a line of ballet flats for Spring 2012 and they're so very darling. I'm particularly enamored with these:


So classic.


From what I've seen during my morning of Googling, it looks like there will be a fairly wide variety of fabrics and colors available, any of which I'd be happy to wear.

I have a lot of trouble when it comes to flats and, as ugly as classic TOMS are, they are some of the few shoes that don't eat my feet and make me bleed. I love that they're branching out into prettier options!

Check out more pictures on Liz's Babble post or get Googling (I can never find info about the yet-to-be-released stuff on the TOMS website. Anyone else have that problem?).

  6. I have yet to buy any TOMS (because of the price), but when I saw these on pinterest on a few weeks ago, I knew a TOMS purchase was imminent.

  8. Those are SO cute- and will be super versatile. TOMS are my favorite to add a little character to a simple jeans-Tshirt combo :)

  16. They are gorgeous! I've heard that TOMS is a really good company too, so I think I'll be supporting them and getting me a pair (or two, or three, or four...)!

  17. I absolutely love my TOMS! It took my friends a ton of convincing to make me buy some, but they totally saved my feet when I worked at a kids camp this summer! Oh, I want a pair (or two, or three...) of these so bad!
