Sporty Mood

Hot temperatures call for smaller pieces. I've had these overall shorts for quite some time but I just never knew how to wear them. This outfit happened so last minute, but those are the outfits that always seem to work for me. Feeling time crunched when putting together an outfit actually pushes me to get more creative with my pieces and I usually always end up with things I've never paired together before. I love a good comfy hoody like this one from Bench but I needed to create a look that was interesting for you guys rather than something basic and casual that you would be expect. That's just not how I roll which is why you got this. Baring more midriff than I'm comfortable with, this Greek tan made me feel a little less naked. That's why the sweater is mandatory for me here so I can bare it and still cover it... a bit. This post has quite a bit of attitude in it but the outfit made me bring it so..... ya.

Rules of styling Birkenstock's are #MADETOBEBROKEN

Do Birkenstock's take you back to your younger days? They used to be so cool and after a bit of a hiatus they are back and even cooler than ever. Being a flat, simple slip-on sandal we generally pair these up with a casual day look or wear them to the beach. With Birkenstock's returning with a bit of flare I wanted to push the norm and see how dressed up I could style them. If you caught my last blog post you will know is challenging the rules of how to wear shoes. Wednesday I started with espadrilles and today I'm pairing up my rose gold Birks with this simple yet pretty slip dress. I would feel totally comfortable taking this look out for dinner. The white dress is almost too fancy so toning it down a bit with a denim jacket can really bring balance to this dressed up/ dressed down look. How are you wearing your Birks?

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!
