five summer footwear staples

It shouldn’t be a secret that I love shoes. Especially of the open-toe variety. So, I pretty much live for warm-weather footwear. I really think women’s shoes have been having a renaissance, and these are some styles I’m lusting after this season.

White Leather

Something about smooth white sandals is just so appealing this time of year. These would look just as great with a t-shirt dress as a pair of cut-off denim shorts.

Feminine Flair

Brother Vellies makes a similar shoe (the Burkina sandals) and I love the understated femininity of gathered fabric in a pastel color.

Block Heel

Ah, a style I will NEVER tire of. I own so many sandals and shoes with a block heel, and I adore them all. It’s the chicest and most comfortable way to add an inch or two to your height.

Woven Elements

If you’re over espadrilles, take a gander at summer shoes that incorporate raffia/straw or something else that looks like a picnic basket for your feet.

Something See-Through

Channel your inner Kardashian and find a sandal with some kind of plastic-y element. Tip: these Who What Wear shoes are literally $30 at Target. They have a higher-heeled version, too.

pin-spiration: tile

I LOVE TILE. When I was in Morocco I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the tiled doorways and gardens. So beautiful, so thoughtful, so precisely laid. From simple subway tile to colorful mosaics, I’m constantly inspired by images like these ones.

all that glitters is…silver?

Lately, I’ve been trying to step up my accessory game. My closet is literally overflowing with clothes, so instead of adding to that inventory, I’m making an effort to style forgotten pieces of clothing with new jewelry.

That’s why I was PUMPED when I learned more about Rocksbox, a jewelry subscription that lets you try out all kinds of designer jewelry before you commit to buying it. I’m always hesitant to order earrings online because it’s hard to tell how big they are, and whether or not they’ll be too heavy for my ears…so this experience has been amazing so far.

I almost exclusively wear silver jewelry, so I listed that as a preference when I took the initial style quiz. They have products from some of my favorite labels like Kate Spade, Gorjana, Kendra Scott, and House of Harlow 1960, so there was tons of stuff I immediately added to my wish list.ย Can you tell I’m a sucker for statement earrings?

I’m not a salesperson, but this is a subscription box that I’d seen on Instagram and heard good things about…so it’s been super exciting for me to be a part of Rocksbox.

You can also apply the $21 monthly fee as a credit towards a purchase from your box, so it’s a win-win situation. Not to mention that they have a ton of insanely cute stuff that’s up to 40% off the retail price.

pin-spiration: millennial pink

Millennial pink has been “in” for a while now, but I don’t think it’s going anywhere. From iPhones to water bottles, I take every opportunity I get to make a purchase in this color. Here’s some pastel inspo from Pinterest.

pin-spiration: color

Even though my wardrobe is mostly made up of neutrals (there’s a lot of navy blue, black, and gray in my closet), I love unexpected pops of color and pattern, whether a pair of bright sandals, flashy earrings, or jewel-tone nail polish.

This week, I wanted to share some of the cheery and colorful images I have pinned to my “color” board on Pinterest.

How do you work color into your daily life?

pin-spiration: typography

I love words! And fun fonts! Color! Shapes! Typography is a no-brainer pin-spiration category for me. In another life I would love to be someone who gets to think of these fonts and make words look cooler than they already are.

pin-spiration: bathroom bliss

 

After living in dormitories and New York City apartments for the last 5+ years, I can’t wait for the day when I have a bathroom that nobody uses other than myself. I’m a big fan of white tile, colorful wallpaper, and natural elements – though my main requirement for my future bathroom is a large tub.

From whimsical walls to modern finishes, here are some images I’ve saved on Pinterest.
