white on…

It hardly seems possible in this summer heat that the weather will soon turn cold again. But, it will of course. Until that happens we can wear our white shoes to our hearts’ content. While I personally am not a believer that white should not be worn after September I do think that certain exceptions to that rule exist. For example I (of course this is a personal opinion) would not wear a white sandal at any time of year  other than summer. So, having said that…I love these Enida Schutz block heel sandals in white or theses wedge sandals by DayaneYum!!

bold…

This season we are busting out with our boldest of accessories. Starting with bags big or small. Put the focus on your bold and beautiful bag and keep the rest of your outfit simple (but never boring). I love this Rainbow tote or this one by Kate Spade.  I also love to hit vintage shops for great vintage statement bags.

everywhere…

It’s obvious to all of us that off the shoulder is the summer 2016 trend. It actually is a good trend because really almost everyone can wear it. And, like most trends, by now it’s been around long enough that you can buy it for next to nothing. Above Leandra wears Rosie AssoulinEqually stunning is this one by Caroline Constas and this one by Tibi. I also love this at ASOS by Vero Moda and this one at PixieMarket

summer’s shoe…

I think at this point we can all agree that the espadrille is the shoe of the summer. Whether a chunky high-heel wedge worn with a pencil skirt (as above) or a flat lace-up worn with culottes (as below), they are a summer 2016 trend that we will see right through to boot weather.

bare shouldered…

This season it’s all about the off-the-shoulder look. I really love this one available at tibi.com. It’s just so easy to style. Equally stunning on a Saturday dinner date with strappy high heeled sandals or on Saturday afternoon running errands with flats. I also love this one from OASIS and this one from forever 21. This ISOLDA from matches.com is flowy and looks so comfy. Lastly, this one from Free People available at Nordstrom.com is on my list of summer dresses,
