Savvy Hijabi: Metal Cap Toe Flats

Aldo Elak

You can jazz up any outfit with these affordable flats from Aldo!

I am currently loving all of the latest accessories not only being in metallics, but having a high shine mirror finish. All that glitter may not be gold, but they are still a fashionable hijabi must! If you want to update your wardrobe for the white hot days of summers, one of the coolest pairings are metals with brights, or whites and pastels. Basically, metallic accessories are versatile. What hijabi doesn’t like that?

If you live in flats like I do, then one cool way to embrace the high gloss metal look is to rock these Aldo cap toe Elak flats. They are perfect for Muslim moms on the go who need a polished update. As a busy mom, I need all the help I can get to look polished in a matter of seconds. They are also a very affordable $50 (USD) versus my beloved Tory Burch Revas. I will warn you ladies that if you have big wide feet like I do, just get a half size up. Also, you need to break them in so they may pinch the sides of your feet. My quick tip is to add insole cushions so that your inner sole doesn’t start rolling up either.

Other than those tips, I love my flats! What are your quick tips for moms on the go?

Savvy Hijabi: Turquoise Flats for Less

Tory Burch Eddie Flat

Tory Burch Eddie Flat

So as you know, I have been loving the spring pastel colors cropping up every where to help us all get rid of these winter blahs. While I may not be suffering like my East coast readers are with the winter storm Nemo, it is still pretty rainy and cold here in California too. But I have been loving pops of mint green and light turquoise to get me going until spring.

As you may know, I am always in love with Tory Burch flats. They are chic, comfortable (once you break them in) and they always make any frazzled mama look put together. I think I have worn out my Black Reva flats after two years of continuous wear. While I can TRY to justify the cost per wear is not that bad, I know that they are definitely expensive for most of us.

The amazing thing is that while Tory Burch flats are so terribly cute, their Eddie ballet flats are not so blatantly branded and it is easier to find a nice wallet friendly alternative. As you can tell by the picture above, the Eddie flat in turquoise is definitely a cute shoe, but wait till you see the look I found for less:

It literally almost looks like the SAME shoe!

And while Tory Burch’s Eddie flat will cost you $178, the Banana Republic Abby flat is only $79! You can purchase the Banana Republic Abby flat here.
