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.

Because Saturday is the 4th of July, I decided to do this week’s Currently Coveting early. I am all about dressing for a holiday, especially Independence Day because then i can show off my patriotism!! The funny thing is I don’t actually know yet what I’m doing for the 4th! I’ll either be at the beach, at a barbecue, or a house party. So I’ve been looking for some inspiration that’s versatile and can move from the beach to a house.
I started browsing Farfetch for some inspiration and realized that this website is just the aesthetic that I am looking for for my Independence Day dressing. I want to stick to the traditional red, white, and blue, and stars and stripes but I don’t want to be over the top with the American flag a la Forever21. Farfetch gave me some great ideas. I seem to be moving towards a statement piece, like the striped skirt or the gingham dress and keep the rest of my pieces within the red, white and blue color scheme. Make sure to check back to see what I end up wearing to celebrate America’s birthday!!

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!

Ah Paris, mon cherie! Where fashion and style were born. And, this Paris Fashion Week did not disappoint, with the beautiful fabrics, silhouettes, prints and looks at just about every show that walked in the city of love. In fact, I couldn’t narrow down my favorite collections enough and will be doing two posts talking about my favorite collections!!
So, here is part 1 of my favorite collections from Paris Fashion Week:
I believe that a great crossbody bag is an outfit game changer. Not only is it so easy and comfortable to use, but it can really add a little touch of excitement or flash to your outfit. And, I think that it’s important to have a couple different styles of crossbody bags so that you have something for every occasion, from a glam night to an errand day to everything in between. Some can even transition from day to night so seamlessly. I have the Chloé Marcie bag and I use it for everything from shopping to bar hopping with my girls. Here are some of my favorite crossbodys out there right now!!
