Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post, but I was gifted these shoes as part of my role as a Sarah Flint Brand Ambassador.
Shopping for shoes is one of my least favorite things to do, because often I really struggle to find cute shoes that actually fit me. I wear size 4 in women’s shoes, which is limiting enough, but I also can’t wear heels comfortable because of the way my ankles bend. So when you take those criteria and add in the fact that I want shoes that are cute and fit my style, it’s tricky. It’s even trickier when I want something a little bit dressier – finding dressy flats are hard enough; finding dressy flats that are cute and fit and are comfortable can feel near impossible.
All of this is why when I saw that Sarah Flint had come out with a pointy toe slingback flat (the Natalie Sling) in the shiniest, prettiest gold metallic leather, my face basically made an expression that’s the equivalent of the heart-eye emoji! It’s everything that I always wanted – in my size, a flat, dressed up with a pointy toe and bow, in a metallic leather that dresses it up even more.
I’m happy to report that they absolutely live up to the hype (that I had created for them). I have a few pair of the regular Natalie flats from Sarah Flint, and the fit for the Natalie sling is super similar. Because the strap in the back of the sling has a buckle, they’re even more adjustable, which I think is great. I was able to get a perfect fit in the back – just tight enough without having to worry about it rubbing against my ankle. And they’re just as comfortable as the Natalie flat – they have the same padded footbed that truly makes them feel great on, even with all day wear.
And the gold leather!! It’s just pure perfection, and surprisingly versatile. I wore them with a simple black smocked dress here to take the outfit up a notch and dress it up, but they would look equally great with cocktail attire. I really love an all-occasion shoe, especially because these are an investment piece – a worthwhile investment, in my opinion, but an investment nonetheless.
I’m already planning multiple outfits around these gold slings. I can’t wait to wear them everywhere! I love when something I buy ends up being better than I even hoped for, and these Natalie slings definitely fall into that category.
