Have you been dragging your feet (pun intended!) on buying some lace up flats? Whether it’s because of price, seasonality or pure laziness, you need to cut it out! This trend is EVERYWHERE lately and styles are selling out fast. For those of you ladies out there like me, price is super important on these trendy styles. But guess what.. I’ve got your back! You can always go to Barney’s and drop a few hundred dollars on a beautiful pair of shoes, but I’ve scoured the internet and gathered the best deals out there. And get excited! There are a few awesome looking, wallet friendly picks that are right on trend!
Can you believe all these lace up flats are $51 and under? These amazing steals are from ASOS, Topshop and even Kohl’s!
Get excited girls, my ultimate guide to summer shoe trends is here! This summer is all about fringe, lace-up ankle straps, espadrilles, metallics and more!
I pulled together some fabulous (and super budget friendly) options that fall into each of summer’s top four trends! A few of my favorites are Old Navy’s Tie Gladiators, Target’s Embellished Footbeds, Forever 21’s Crochet Espadrilles and H&M’s Floral Platforms. As you are shopping, you will probably notice a lot of the styles fall into more than one trend, covering all your bases! (crochet + espadrilles = dreamy!) And the best part of all is the price tags on these picks! They are all priced under $45- now that’s a trend I can get behind! Happy shopping and share your favorites in the comments below!
One of my favorite areas in London is the neighborhood we stayed in, Notting Hill. It’s an adorable, contemporary neighborhood where the streets are lined with beautiful Victorian homes, trendy restaurants, great shopping and of course the infamous Portobello Road Market!
We were lucky enough to stay in one of these magical Victorian homes in the heart of Notting Hill. It was relaxing to be able to leave the craziness of tourism in the city and come home to this charming community. It even curbed our homesickness and reminded us a bit of the painted ladies in San Francisco. I mean just look how cute these painted doors and tiled steps are, I couldn’t get enough!
One of our favorite things to do in London was exploring the city and finding new food markets. Little did we know, we were staying blocks away from one of London’s most infamous markets, Portobello Road Market. We taste-tested donuts, fudge and other deliciousness from every market we came across. Our favorite market of all ended up being the Borough Market near the London Bridge. Everything we tasted there was primo, we had to go twice because we couldn’t stop thinking about the donuts! I’m already planning my trip back to London, just for the donuts!
Crashing waves, rompers and champagne… now that’s what I’m talking about! Before our trip to Europe, my husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary at Crissy Beach in San Francisco. One of our favorite ways to experience our city is packing a yummy picnic and enjoying the sunshine.
I wore this adorable eyelet romper (previously featured here!) for our casual day at the beach and paired it with my favorite spring accessories- Leopard Sandals, a dutch braid and a perfectly packed picnic basket! Nothing recharges me after a crazy week like spending a day relaxing in the sunshine. To have your own effortless picnic day, check out my guide to preparing for the perfect picnic here!
This past weekend my husband and I drove up north into wine country. We were itching to get out of the city and take advantage of the nice weather, so what better place to go to than Healdsburg, CA? Don’t get me wrong, we love Napa and Sonoma, but our favorite spot of all is Healdsburg! This small town is packed full of cute shops, delicious restaurants and most importantly, amazing wineries! What more could a girl ask for?
A lot of the wineries in Healdsburg have a rustic, casual feel to them. They are much more laid back than the mansions you see sprinkled about Napa. The experience is all about the wine and relaxing. In my opinion there is no better way to spend a Sunday than lounging on a patio sipping wines made from the grapes just a few feet away.
As we were exploring the grounds we came across this old blue truck. Although it’s a chevy, it reminded me of my dad’s old blue ford truck we had growing up so I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures with it. It was a ton of fun and brought back some great memories! Hope you enjoy them too! And as always, to shop the look scroll to the bottom of the post.
The weather in San Francisco was unbeatable this weekend so my husband and I took advantage of the sunshine and went on a stroll through Golden Gate Park. For those of you who don’t know, Golden Gate Park is even bigger than Central Park so we spent hours there and barely made a dent on the map.
We spent a lot of our time in the The Conservatory of Flowers (pictured below) and the Botanical Gardens. As you can see, the place was covered with bright, blooming flowers… I felt right at home in my floral maxi! The park trails took us from hiking up wooden steps, strolling around the lake, to inside a museum. It’s tough to find an outfit that can fit the bill for all that so I stuck to this casual light layered look. It has a boho feel that keeps it casual and pairing it with sandals keeps it comfy. Shop the look at the bottom of the post!
I’m back! Sorry for my unexpected hiatus! I’ve been under the weather and traveling for the past few weeks and I’m finally back home and healthy (almost)!
Anyways, today is all about spring shoe trends. We are well into February and it’s about this time of year that I start to get antsy for spring! I am dying to go get a fresh pedicure and prance around town in some new, fun, spring forward shoes!
This year I’m gravitating toward metallics, bright prints and detailed neutrals. What are my absolute must haves for spring?
There’s one pair of heels that will always be on my wishlist, that’s the Valentino Rockstud Pumps! There’s two reasons for that… 1- these pumps are amazing and will always be in style and 2- they will stay on my wishlist because they are WAY out of my price range!
Valentino makes several variations of the Rockstud- kitten heels, T-strap, flats and many more! Each is amazing in it’s own way, but they run almost $1,000 each! Since I’m not going to be able to afford these anytime soon, I’ve been scouring the internet for a Rockstud look for less. Luckily I’ve found a few great alternatives!
The options below range from $18 to the REAL Valentino’s at $995. Can you spot the real Valentino Rockstuds? If not, each style (and price) is listed right below the collage. I’m personally partial to LuLu’s $34 version. Share your favorite in the comments below!
I am fully embracing the flat trend this fall. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my heels, but some mornings it’s just a little easier to walk to work in flats.
One of my favorite flat trends right now is taken right from the men’s department, lace-up oxfords! But these flats are anything but manly- pastel, leopard, polka dots and sparkles are just a few ways to add a feminine touch to oxfords. I think the metallic pairs are a ton of fun, I snagged these Naya Tahlia Metallic Oxfords from Hautelook a few months ago and have been getting a ton of milage out of them, check them out in my Mint Tweed post!
