Rules of wearing Espadrilles are #MADETOBEBROKEN

When I think about espadrilles beachy, vacation vibes come to mind. Usually made with a canvas shell and jute rope sole they are designed with comfort and for casual settings. Recently I was asked by to challenge the rules of shoes for their #MADETOBEBROKEN campaign. Since I'm not one for rules anyway I was excited to take on the job. So meet Leni, an espadrille from Circus by Sam Edelman. They are too adorable with the word EASY on one shoe and an emoji of a tiger on the other. They were tough to choose between the other two available on SHOEme which were: Rosé ALL DAY and Fries (emoji) B4 GUYS. Anyway, I really wanted to challenge that casual mentality when wearing this shoe so I went ahead and dressed them up. The cheeky little message called for leather and the adorableness of it all made me do something off the shoulder. In the end I think I pretty much nailed it. I mean, with shoes this cute there isn't much to hate on no matter what you wear. What do you think? Would you attempt to style espadrilles dressed up or do you prefer to keep it casual?

Finding comfort in wedges

Ola! It's been a minute since I've been on my blog but I was busy travelling around the Greek Islands aka Paradise. I'll share that trip with you soon but in the meantime we have got so much catching up to do! First up we need to chat about my latest shoe finds from Le Chateau. These wedges are super light, very comfortable and the perfect shade to go with just about anything. Today I'm rocking them with a pair of jeans with a braided detailed waistline that had me obsessed the moment I laid eyes on them. This little cropped, fringed sweater is also a closet favourite that is adorable for those cooler summer nights. With an outfit full of  pretty little details the shoes were a perfect complement to complete the look but not overpower it. Finding balance in your outfit is always something that should be top of mind when putting your look together. Now go shop these shoes because they are currently ON SALE!

Chokers are back in the mix

The trend is tying one on. Remember when tying a sweater or jacket around your waist was cool, then it wasn't and not it is again? It's funny because I don't do it much at all yet I like the look of it. I felt pretty plain when I threw on my black tee dress so I thought it would be a great time to join in... with a bit of struggle I will admit but I'll eventually figure it out. That 'effortless' styling we see all over Instagram isn't always as effortless as it looks! So here I step outside in a fresh look that's new to me and I'm not even kidding you I spotted 5-6 girls wearing basically the exact same outfit, I couldn't help but to laugh. I guess I've been trend struck but not quite the trend setter with this one. Anyway I felt this casual look needed a backpack and let me just tell you how much I love it. Brave Leather's Jin Leather Drawstring Backpack is worn by me on the regular. For starters it's such a simple, sleep black leather back it works with everything and secondly you hold carry this bag in a bunch of ways. Ya I'm into worn as a backpack but sometimes it's easier to sling over one shoulder to simply hold in one hand. Whatever the way this bag adds some serious swag to your look. And while we are on the topic of Brave, they just dropped a choker collection and the Fantiv Leather Choker I'm wearing with this outfit is siiiiiiiiiick. I've actually retired the choker for the past several months because I felt they got seriously overplayed but then I got this one and their Huyana Leather Choker and now I'm back on the bandwagon.

Little White Dress

I said I wasn't going to buy anything for Greece but... Come on I'm sure you've been there, but then you came across that piece that would be perfect for the trip you're about to go on. This white dress from Aritzia is made out of a light, flowy fabric that screams Greece. The best part is it comes with a slip underneath that looks great on it's own when you want to switch things up and I'm really into the simplicity of slip dresses lately. I've worn these with a bit of a heel but look forward to wearing it casually with a flat sandal while I'm away. Keeping things dressy with this look I've layered up two Jenny Bird necklaces that I'm obsessing over and once again my Nicole Vienna watch that I haven't taken off my wrist. All white is daring but going to Greece without packing white is equally as daring. I can't wait to share this trip with you guys. 10 more sleeps!
