Fall Shopping: Leopard Flats

Even though it feels like summer is just starting here I’m already thinking about fall purchases!  And very first on the list is leopard flats.  I think they are such a great way to add a little punch to your outfit without being overwhelming, and you can wear them in the summer or in the fall which makes them a great transition piece!
I bought option 6 when I saw them on sale at Target the other day, but I’m not sure if I want that style or skimmers with more of a pointy toe like options one or four.  The price on #6 is hard to beat though!  
Links to Shop:
one  |  two  |  three
four  |  five  |  six
seven  |  eight

On another note, what’s on your fall wish list?  I could potentially pull together some shopping options for yall if there is overlap among you!

    I just bought a pair of leopard flats too! Mine were Franco Sarto from Nordstrom Rack. I only paid $20 for them, but now I think I paid too much! I've worn them several times already though so I'm pretty pleased with my purchase. Much more versatile than I previously thought!

    I love this post! I typically can't wear flats because my feet are narrow but my toes are long so they never fit right. BUT I have been trying to decide whether to get leopard or camo print toms for the fall and you totally swayed me 🙂

    Leopard flats have been on my wishlist forever! I bought a pair from Target recently that I am wearing nonstop but I am still searching for pointy ones that aren't a fuzzy type fabric. I hate that fabric. Here are the ones I got… I also got them in black 🙂 http://www.target.com/p/women-s-mossimo-supply-co-voneta-studded-tuxedo-flat-leopard/-/A-14471242#prodSlot=medium_1_26&term=leopard

    My fall wishlist is black wedges and red pointy flats.

    I'm thinking of splurging on these ones by Lucky brand: http://www.zappos.com/lucky-brand-emmie-luxe-leopard?zfcTest=fcl%3A0

    I have an adorable pair by Lauren Conrad that I got from Kohl's last year, but every single time I wear them I want to throw them away. One loop around the grocery store and my feet are absolutely killing me. Sadly my feet apparently don't like cheap shoes. 🙁

    Love my leopard flats! I've had the same pair for years and they're just so timeless. This fall I want to add some booties to my shoe hoard, but I have such skinny ankles I feel like they all look funny on me.

    Cognac boots (!), gray pencil skirt, cardigans, scarves, and the most adorable oxfords found at DSW. Now I'm thinking I should add leopard print shoes to the list!

    It's funny that you bought #6 because I had picked them out before I even saw that you bought them. I like that they aren't pointy even though pointy flats are in. I need to get a pair. I'll have to check it out at Target. I"m lusting over leather. I bought a boyfriend sweater with leather pockets from J Crew. Can't wait to wear it.

    Looking forward to the link up on Tuesday.

    Don't forget to stop by and link up tomorrow, Thursday, for my weekly Tres-Chic Fashion Thursday Link Up.

    I need to get some fall/winter shoes. I really need help with what to buy and how to style them. I live in a climate with cold winters and snow, so flats kind of don't work. They don't keep my feet warm and they let in snow. Some help in this are would be SO helpful. I currently have one pair of black flat boots and tennis shoes. So, yeah, I need some help! 🙂

    I have a pair of leopard loafers, I feel like they are a bit more suited for fall because they are more clunky than a pair of ballet flats. This fall I'm interested in booties, but not sure what I'd like best.

    I have a pair of leopard print flats that I never wear because they cut across the top of my foot in a weird spot. Maybe you'll inspire me to just buy another pair finally, because I love all those options you listed!
    I'd appreciate some ideas for wearing ankle boots. I see them listed as a fall trend everywhere but I have no idea what to actually wear them with. I also always love new ideas for how to wear scarves and belts.

    I'm on the lookout for some flattering olive skinnies (or some other subdued shade of green) to wear with boots. I feel like a color like that would go with both brown and black boots. But I don't want the cargo pocket ones that everyone had a year or so ago.

    Target recently changed the style of their ona flats- they used to scrunch in the back instead of on the sides, and just a couple weeks ago I found the original ona leopard flats in my size on clearance at target for $4.50! Needless to say I eagerly snatched them up and have been loving on them ever since! I wasn't sure if I wanted leopard shoes or not but couldn't pass that price up and now I wonder how I ever questioned wanting them!!

    I love the skimmer version with pointy toes the best… I used to have more rounded toe ones, but then the Madewell version just got me. So extra chic to add the point to the print. Option #1 looks like a great knockoff of them! My shoe quest is for the next great pair of cognac riding boots…

    Thanks for the great list! I ordered a pair of leopard print flats online a few months ago but I'm not loving them…the print is almost so dark that you can't tell they are leopard print. I might just have to order one of the pairs you've found 🙂

    One (of the many) things on my wish list for this fall is a pair of patterned pants (denim or otherwise). I would love to see your recommendations!

    I was in LOVE with the madewell pair for the longest time (and I don't even like leopard print!!!!) but I ended up getting the Gap pair that you have featured. Super cute though not *that* comfy.

    My fall list includes a pair of cognac flats!

    I tried to skim the comments, so sorry if this is a repeat. I loved my leopard flats and wore them a lot, but eventually the finish wore off along the sides where they skimmed the ground. You could see the under layer and it was not cute… Ideas for that? Materials? Size? Just plan to replace them?

    I have this leopard pair from Payless http://www.payless.com/store/product/detail.jsp?catId=&subCatId=&skuId=099414055&productId=70092&lotId=099414&category=&catdisplayName=Womens. They are ridiculously comfy.

    I picked up a more casual pair of leopard flats at the Bass outlet last weekend for $19.99. They're a scrunch style with a penny loafer detail across the toe. Very cute.

    I already have olive skinnies (the ones with ankle zippers from Old Navy). I'm on the hunt for cognac boots, scarves and a new fall jacket.

    I got lucky with finding a pair of the Madewell mini wedges on extra 30% off clearance last spring – so they're pretty much exactly the skimmers but with a 1/2 inch wedge, which never hurts for a short lady like me… That helped me go for the real thing, otherwise I like the price of the option you found! Also, do share if you find the perfect boot 🙂 Getting new ones because you wore your last ones out from loving them so much is the best reason, I say!

    I am so looking for leopard shoes too! This will be part of my fall wish list! I'm also really looking at camo pants and a pair of camo Tom's( not to be worn together). I already have a pair of olive green jeans from Old Navy that I know will look cute with leopard shoes. I am also on the hunt for a couple of blazers( red & navy) and cardigan sweaters to pair with all my tops to have a more pulled together style. I just wish I could at least start wearing jeans/pants, but in Texas it's just to hot still! Today it's supposed to get to 97 degrees!!! I'm wishing for a cool/cold from to head our way!!!

    Gap outlet has the same leopard flats and they are cheaper- just FYI. I bought a pair of leopard kitten heels from target and I was loving them until I walked outside and the bottom of the heel came off. Ugh. Love leopard.
    I already started shopping for fall, got the BR giraffe print sweater, a taupe cardigan, and 2 super cute work ready dresses from loft. and new black suede booties from sole society. I am obsessed with Navy lately. I also would love to have some oxblood things in my closet, a scarf, and flats.
