Currently Coveting: Espadrilles

I have a confession: I love shoes. Like, a lot. I am willing to spend more money on shoes than on anything else. And, I think it’s because no matter what type of outfit I’m wearing, the shoes always complete it. At the moment, I’m obsessed with espadrilles. They’re the perfect shoe for summertime, especially summer trips when you’re walking around all day and need comfortable, yet stylish shoes.

As I was browsing some spring sales this past weekend, I came across the perfect pair in the Barneys Warehouse sale, at a steal of a price!! These gorgeous Aquazurra Belgravia Espadrilles are now mine and I couldn’t be more excited!! Now, knowing that I have a 3 week Europe trip around the corner, I may have started looking up some other espadrilles for the trip, because a girl always needs options for different outfits, right? Take a look below at the ones I’m currently coveting, including the new addition to my wardrobe.

  1. Soludos  // 2. Aquazurra  // 3. Proenza Schouler  // 4. Michael Kors  // 5. Loeffler Randall  // 6. Saint Laurent  // 7. Chloé  // 8. Valentino  // 9. Circus by Sam Edelman

Currently Coveting: Perfect Pantone Pastels

Spring is here! They say springtime represents new life, a renaissance of sorts. I see it as an opportunity to revamp our closets and breathe new life into our daily wardrobe. A time to put away our sweaters, coats, leggings and boots in the dark colors of winter and re-emerge in the flirty dresses, tops, tanks and sandals in the warm colors of Spring. Particularly, the pastel colors that herald the start of this new season.

I teamed up with Farfetch to bring you my inspiration for springtime. I put together a wishlist/inspiration board that represents how I see myself in these coming months.Each piece is not only a spring silhouette – think crop tops, vests, and dresses – but also is in a soft pastel color that matches the warm weather that Spring brings us.

I am most of all obsessed with the Alexander McQueen off the shoulder mini dress. Nothing says Spring like a ruffly mini dress in a warm cloud blue that shows off a little shoulder and a little leg.

Take a look at my wishlist below and be inspired to revamp your own wardrobe with some pieces that evoke the warmth and renaissance that Spring brings!

Currently Coveting: Gladiator…I Salute You

I have loved the gladiator sandal since I bought my first pair back in 2010 at a Zara in Italy. And, though the style has come and gone, I have worn my several pairs of gladiators nonstop since then. Recently, for Spring/Summer 2015, the style has resurfaced, much to my delight! And, with it has come gladiators in all styles: from knee-high, structured and flat sandal to ankle-high, dainty and pump – there is a style for every taste and every occasion!

Currently Coveting: Rain Rain, Don’t Go Away

 

I LOVE the rain. For many reasons. I love the smell, I love the sound, I love how clean everything looks after a good rain. But most importantly, I love cold weather/rain fashion. For some reason, I think I look better in sweaters, and vests, and boots, and coats. So, any chance I get in this current California drought, to rock some of these pieces, I get really excited!! The past week or so has seen cold weather and some rain in Southern California, which means I get to bust out my favorite pieces from closet. Take a look at some of the pieces that I’m currently coveting and inspired by for this wet weather!

Currently Coveting: Pencil Me In

I’m heading up to LA this weekend for my friend’s bachelorette festivities!! I’m so excited to go back to my old stomping grounds in West Hollywood and stir up a little trouble with my closest friends! To mark the occasion, I decided to finally wear this AMAZING ASTR pencil skirt that I have but have never worn because I just couldn’t seem to find the right top for it. I was on the hunt this week for the perfect top and was inspired by the current trend of a crop top paired with a pencil skirt. I love this look because it creates a going out look that is sexy but not overtly out there, in other words it’s juuuust right!

Here are some pieces that I used as inspiration during my week-long search for the perfect crop top to pair with my skirt. I am so excited to have fun this weekend and also to rock this look!!

Currently Coveting: On The Fringe

Maybe it’s because it’s springtime and the weather is warming up, allowing for more fun and light pieces or maybe it’s because we are in the midst of festival season, but I am loving fringe right now. It an evokes a kind of flirty look with a touch of vintage flair. Whether it’s full on fringe that make you want to swish left and right or a subtle fringe that gives your look a little bohemian edge, fringe is the perfect trend to breathe some fresh air into your spring wardrobe!

Check out some fringe pieces I have my eye on right now!
