Outfit Of The Day: Belle and Beans Shoes

Are you red-dy for this?

Some days my style is girly to the max (think flower crowns and tea dresses!), whereas others I'm in super simple outfits that are minimalistic and effortless to put together.

The day I shot this blog post (well, the day my little brother shot this post - he was a champ for being my stand-in tripod since mine is on it's last legs; pun intended) was one of the latter.

Here I'm wearing a pretty monochromatic outfit with pops of red (a little colour never hurt anybody!) consisting of a striped cropped tee, high-waisted black skinnies, a bright scarlet lip and of course; a cute as pair of shoes!

You'll rarely ever find me in head-to-toe black and white, because I just adore colour too much! So when I head to two-tone-town, I always add a pop of a bright hue for funsies. For this look, I went for a pop of red, thanks to my Belle and Beans shoes.

At first, these cuties are kind of unusual to look at (check that unique woven rope design!), but if you've ever worn 'jelly' shoes, then you'll probably guess what I'm about to say next... that these are SUPER comfortable! 

I've been on the look out for a pair of flats for a while (my old pair of red Chinese-style flats have been worn in to the extreme), so I was stoked to find these. They're actually designed to be worn at the beach because they dry quickly and you don't have to wander around on the sand with bare feet (and thongs - or flip flops!! - are really difficult to walk with on the beach). It's a bit too cold to head beachside now, so I'll just be wearing them as regular flats.

While I won't be pulling these out on a rainy day, these are the perfect pair of shoes for running casual errands because they're really comfy to walk in. So here's my outfit for chilling out and looking chic - think a shopping trip, a movie night with friends or an afternoon coffee catch up.

Cropped tee - Sportsgirl
Leopard print skinny belt - Dotti
High-waisted black skinny jeans - Ripcurl
Amy watch (Rose gold) - Marc by Marc Jacobs

You can head to the Belle and Beans website to see their entire flats collection. They ship worldwide, their shoes are $25 a pair (say what?!) and there's pretty much a rainbow to choose from! 

What colour Belle and Beans shoes would you choose? Let me know in the comments below!
