Currently Smitten with: Ballet Flats

Thanks to the lovely influence of Paris, all I want are ballet flats. The norm for go-to’s around here are Repetto’s, but recently I found a new brand through The Shoe Goddess, called Pretty Ballerinas. Some are kinda wacky, but still adorable. I think my favorites are the suede flower ones, but check them all out, so cute!

Repetto Flats

shades of spring and summer

love these. always a fan of a neutral color and the gradient lenses are fun. Not to mention the frames are a bit retro, but in a cool, almost 70’s  way.

Gucci Oversized Square Sunglasses

secondly, i am in love with these. they are so spring/summer ready and kitschy and remind me a bit of betty draper. 🙂

Ray Ban Classic Wayfarer


Another great shoe… but a much greater price

I must say Topshop is one of the best shopping websites for stylish clothes and shoewear without breaking the bank account. In fact, most of their prices are beyond reasonable. Here are a pair of shoes that come in the perfect neutral color for any season and have a major platform- which i love. Unfortunately Topshop isn’t good with pictures so I’ll just post the link for you to check them out.



Sergio Rossi

Sergio Ross Suede Peep Toe Slingbacks

I love these. Usually I’m not much of a pink person, but these are so striking and not girly pink, but cool pink. You know what I mean. Sergio Rossi is becoming one of my favorite designers. The cut and style of his shoes are so sleek and beautiful. Too bad they are also expensive. Mais c’est la vie.

Fall Fashion Trends

Wayyyy back in May, I had my first chance encounter with what looks to be one of fall’s biggest trends: Sequin leggings. And I will admit, it was love. When done right, they can look so rockstar. Now, I am seeing this style in all colors and lengths. I must say black is still my favorite, but the silver ones shown below are really cool. You’d have to make sure to tone down the rest of your outfit though, because they are definitely loud.


LaROK Walk That Walk Black Sequin Leggings

LaROK Rockstar Sequin Leggings

The second trend I’ve seen and also find to be a little risky but totally cool when done right is the tye-dyed denim. Okay it sounds bad, but the pictures should save me here.

Madewell Skinny Low rise Jeans

Madewell Skinny Low rise Jeans

These are a great subtle version of this trend, and best of all they are one of the less expensive pairs as well. Yay!

Current/Elliott Skinny Jeans

Current/Elliott Skinny Jeans

I think these are also pretty subtle, but on a much lighter side of the spectrum. Shopbop.com

Alice+Olivia Spatter Ripped Skinny Jeans

Alice+Olivia Spatter Ripped Skinny Jeans

has a few others similar to this color as well.

These Alice+Olivia pair are my personal favorites. I think the pattern on these is sooo cool and the colors are perfect because they don’t overdo it.

J Brand 12" Skinny Jeans

J Brand 12" Skinny Jeans

These J Brands are pretty cool, not my favorite but a nice change from the black and white palettes on the previous pairs.

All in all, i think both of these styles are really cool and will only become more popular as the season goes on. What do you guys think? Love it or hate it?
