A pair of flats won't kill you, I swear

After you've opened your Christmas/Channuka/Kwanzaa gifts this year, you can get back to the task at hand: finding awesome flats. This is your mission, whether or not you choose to accept it.

For my lovely readers who cling shamelessly to their heels, I will say this: sometimes the situation calls for flats. You know it's true- there has been that brunch/park outing/afternoon of shopping when you've thought, just for a few tiny moments, that flats might just work better for ya. Fear not- there ARE flats that even a heel-lover like myself can get on board with.

Behold: 10 Flats It Won't Kill You to Consider

Spring Usrey flats for $29.98. Rarely has a synthetic shoe caught my eye like this one. The pointed toe keeps the line flattering, and the zipper detail keeps the look from being too precious.

Banana Republic Prya rosette flats are $98, but we all now they'll be on sale soon enough. Long after the holidays are over, you'll still want to wear these out and about for day or night.

For something a little ridiculous, try the Naughty Monkey Thin Ice flats for $70. The animal print and contrasting yellow stripe might just be what you need to dress up drab winter outfits and these will carry you into spring.

I'm sure I've mentioned these Steve by Steve Madded studded flats before, so now's your chance to get on the bandwagon. They are on sale for $89.99 and they are a perfect alternative to heels for a night out.

A shot of electric blue for $29.99? Check. This is the Rocket Dog Memories flat, and with the knotted bow accent and divine color it's a steal.

If kitschy is your game, try these BC Footwear Escalator flats for $49.95. They come in two color combos.

I'm pretty much in love with these Seychelles Thin Ice Flats. They are $79.95 and have just the right amount of detailing to keep them interesting without being over the top. Plus, the color is one of the most versatile you'll find.

For something a little sweet and office appropriate, check out these nude bow pumps for $32.50.

Here are some cheeky little shoes for the office for $65.00. The shape and color keep them conservative, but the off-kilter button makes them just a tad playful.

Last, but most certainly not least, are these Gabriella Rocha Lolla flats for $59.95. In lipstick red suede, they are stunners. And with the teeniest bit of toe cleavage allowed, they are even a little bit sexy.
