Trend Alert: The Open/Closed Bootie


one | two | three | four | five | six | seven | eight | nine

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?!

Hello Lovelies! Today I’m switching things up and giving you the inside scoop on my sweet friend, Nicolette of Fashionably Stocked.

 What is the name of your blog

Fashionably Stocked

How long have you been blogging?

I first started in May of 2014

 How do you showcase your personal style?

When it comes to my clothes, I love to mix it up! Some days I can’t get enough color, and others, I love to go completely neutral with whites, beige, and earthy tones, but I always, always love to pair my looks with my signature accessories (I can never have enough gold jewelry!)

What is your favorite piece for Spring? / What is your favorite spring trend?

It’s really hard to narrow it down to one because I love when the weather is finally getting warmer, so I would have to say that I’m loving white jeans, florals, and lots of color for this season.

 How do you best style a Spring dress from day time to night time?

For day, I would throw on a little jean jacket and pair it with some cute wedges and an over-sized, structured bag. Then for night, I’ll slip on some pumps and top it with a leather jacket (or go without one, depending on the temperature) then switch out my larger purse to a nice, little clutch or crossbody.

I absolutely love getting to know other bloggers! I hope you enjoyed meeting a new blogger you may not have known before! To finish this post, I wanted to share my absolute top 5 trend picks for Spring. They include, a playful romper, espadrilles, a bright kimono, leaf print (whether in shorts, a dress, or this fabulous top), and lastly, ripped denim! I hope you all enjoyed this post, and see you back here tomorrow! Xo

Spring Shoe Trends

The Ghillie:

The Flat Simple Strap

The Gladiator

one | two | three | four | five | six | seven

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
