I first saw these Juicy Couture Edith in Navy Nappa, $227, when I featured some Fab Found nautical flats a while back. The preppy in me really digs them and those chunky gold buckles. And while navy flats would seem to be for the glam-ma, the scrunched back and oversized hardware make these more cheeky than cheesy. However, the nautical trend comes and goes so one may not want to splurge on such a trendy item.

These Sam Edelman Buckle Ballet flats, $98, are also super cute! The blue is a bit lighter and the buckles are more like a chain than two big links but hey, they get the look done. Pair these with a LWD and an over-sized tote and you're summer stylin.
