Two recent finds I’m eager to share? Red denim and my new tasseled sandals.
Red jeans, can you believe that I don’t have any in my entire denim collection? I found these at Whistles, a British apparel company I would liken to J.Crew (some casual, some work attire, great tailored pieces, with stores found throughout the London area). Perfectly high-waisted, yet relaxed through the leg and complete with a twisted seam and undone hem. I was sold (and I’m considering a black pair!). Plus, what doesn’t go with red? I’m pairing these with chunky knits and booties as the weather turns to fall.
I must admit, I was a bit disappointed with the shopping in London. Not that there wasn’t plenty of beautiful shops and boutiques to browse. Yet everything I discovered I felt like I could find elsewhere (meaning at home or, more specifically, with a quick Internet search). Now, granted, I wasn’t prepared to make a big purchase (like a luxury item) but, even those I knew, if I were interested, a search on the net would find me a more reasonable price. In fact, with the rise of global brands and in the age of the Internet, I could identify where much (if not most) of the clothing British people were wearing came from. Every high street has an H&M, Zara, Forever 21, and Gap. The accessibility that the Internet offers, and the rise of social media, has seemingly made regional differences in dress much less so. Now what better to pair your summer denim with than a pair of embellished sandals? I fell for these tasseled Cocobelle pair immediately. A brightly colored sandal would be fun too, but I like how the neutral color seemingly goes with everything yet the large tassel adds a lot of interest! Perhaps they would even be too much in a flashy color? Most importantly, they do a little dance as you walk…sure to brighten every step!
Kirsty and I are back at it with another 4-Way series. This time we’re pairing Cocobelle’s embellished sandals with several outfits perfect for the last days of summer. Skip on over to her blog to see her look, including an awesome pair of wrap sandals! And check back in later this week for additional outfit inspo.
