Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s no secret I love a pair of gorgeous heels, I can walk into any store and find a handful that I absolutely love. However, they’re not always the most practical choice, especially for everyday wear. During the week, I turn to flats because they’re so practical but to be honest, I have always had a difficult time finding a pair that is chic, stylish and comfortable all at the same time (I tend to get lots of blisters from flats).

As of late, these Tod’s Gommino shoes have become one of my everyday wears because they’re stylish and SO comfy. I love the classic and preppy vibe of this driving shoe, it’s the perfect polished alternative to ballet flats. One of my favorite things about this shoe is the color, I love how it elongates my legs, similar to how a heel would, because the color nearly matches my skin tone. Here’s to stylish shoes that keep your feet comfy all day!

You can see how others are wearing their Tod’s Gommino’s and share your own photo of how you’re sporting your Gommino’s here!

Thanks for reading!

xo, Rach

  18. Chrissabella says:

    Love this gorgeous outfit and your lace top and Tod’s loafers are amazing!

  19. I am right there with you! Flats are definitely my go to during the week – you would probably also love Sperry flats, so cozy.

    I am loving these Tom’s though – definitely will have to give them a try. You look great!

  20. I am right there with you! Definitely turn to flats during the week – and these from Toms are adorable. Love the color and how you have styled them.

  26. Sarah says:

    Its nice to see you opting for flats rather than heel. Love your lace top, perfect combination with the white blazer. I adore your jeans and the pop of pink is this look is awesome. Great tip, never knew that nude shoes elongate the legs.

  27. Benedetta says:

    Just amazing!!!!!Love it!!!

  28. Carlina says:

    Tod’s definitely are super chic, but that blazer is the chicest thing on you! Can’t go wrong with a great classic white, structured blazer. It’s one of my signatures.

    xo Carlina

  29. I love the mix of casual and dressy pieces. It give the whole outfit such a unique style. Those shoes are amazing too!!

  30. Vanessa says:

    Tod’s are super cute, and I’ve wanted a quality pair of driving shoes for a long time (I have a pair of Tory Burch driving shoes that I barely wear–super uncomfortable!). But I just can’t justify the price of Tod’s for what is essentially an expensive disposable shoe. Once those little nubs on the bottom wear out, there is no way for a cobbler to replace the “sole” (per Tod’s). :-(

  31. Heidi says:

    Love the lace and distressed denim, especially with the pop of pink.


  32. arielle says:

    I love these shoes! and that blouse peaking through from under that blazer. such a styled and chic look. also, how does you hair always look so perfect?

    love, arielle

  78. Victoria says:

    Just popped over here from today’s other Tod’s post. I have to say THIS is one of my favorite posts of yours. The overall look is so pretty and feminine. I love your edgier looks that you experiment with but the feminine soft looks are my favorite. THESE driving flats go well with this outfit and can be swapped out for your nude pumps that you often wear. I love the lace shirt you are wearing underneath the white blazer as well as the blazer itself and the denim, bag, etc., only wish there was a link to them! Thank you for inspiring us with your beautiful looks, I’ve been a loyal reader for several years.

  79. Nancy says:

    Hey rach! I love your blog! You are absolutely adorable. I wanted to order those tods and was wondering if they are true to size? Thanks! Can’t wait to see more posts!

    What color are your Tod’s?

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
