One of my favorite trends for fall is the open/closed bootie! It is the perfect shoe to take you from the end of summer to fall because of it’s versatility and ease of wear. Wear these booties with skinny jeans, flowy boho dresses, or shirt dresses! I can’t wait to update my wardrobe with a few of these beauties…the hard part is narrowing down my favorite pairs! Which one is your favorite?!

Happy Friday!! Today I’m sharing this fabulous Shoe Addict top paired with casual distressed denim. I am absolutely loving graphic tee’s this season, and this one suits me perfectly! I love pairing graphic tee’s with distressed denim and sneakers for the ultimate laid back, casual weekend look. How do you like pairing your graphic tee’s?

Spring Shoe Trends

The Ghillie:

The Flat Simple Strap

The Gladiator

Today I’m sharing three footwear trends for Spring! I’ve been seeing a lot of the Ghillie (lace up) which I totally adore. It’s a feminine way of switching up an every day sandal or flat. The flat simple strap sandal is everywhere…in my opinion, it’s the take down of the Birkenstock trend that is more feminine and sleek. Finally, the gladiator trend. This trend seems to circle back more often than most. I love the variations on the trend for Spring – you can really go all out with this trend (like number two), or still play into the trend in a more subtle way (like number five). Happy Tuesday, and happy shopping! xo

Happy Monday! I hope you all had relaxing weekends! Here’s an easy date night look that is perfect for any Friday night this Spring. Don’t be afraid to wear your sequin tops this Spring and Summer. Just because it’s not NYE, doesn’t mean you can’t show off some sparkle! Pair your sequin top with white jeans and open sandals for a fun night out!

Have you ever saved up for an amazing pair of shoes and once you bought them, they lost a little flare?! NOPE!! Me either! There is something about a beautifully crafted pair of shoes that just gets me. However, it’s not always practical to buy the cream of the crop every time. Today I’ve put together some shoes I’m craving, but also have listed a much more affordable option. If you think you are lusting after a style purely because of a trend (which sometimes can be tricky to pinpoint what you love), I would recommend buying the “save” version – if you are trying to start a collection of higher-end pieces, I would collect the most classic styles first, because you’ll most likely have them forever, and they’ll mean something to you later on! Regardless, happy shopping!!

Today I’m sharing an all neutral outfit. I love wearing black and white and adding a pop of color. For this outfit, I chose to pop grey, but you can easily pop a bright color in its place. It’s simple, casual, easy to wear, and perfect for your every day look! I hope you guys have a great Tuesday!
