Let’s start with the shoes…I generally do. Truth be told, a great shoe can take you far. Undoubtedly a worthy investment. Yet, shoes don’t have to cost an arm and a leg to truly elevate your style game. In the spirit of my previous posts about looking ‘Chic on the Cheap’ – I had to share my new favorite summer sandal: THE absolute perfect flatform espadrille. Not truly flat (there is a slight rise in the heel) and utterly stylish, these are the quintessential summer shoe.And, I would be remiss if I did not mention the dress as well. Another fast-fashion find perfect for casual summer styling – BBQs, brunch, farmer’s markets, etc. Nothing is more easy, yet also polished as a simple midi-dress. And in the perfect, gauzy cotton, this dress will be a staple throughout the warm summer months.
Last but definitely not least, a body chain. What is this, you may ask? Crossing your mid-section, looping under you arms, and fastening at your neck; this necklace hybrid is the ultimate summer accessory. Dress up a simple tee or make a statement over a summer sundress, this piece of jewelry is sure to turn heads. Mine is made by my pal and Seattle jewelry designer, Kirsty – I love the bright green turquoise that makes this piece extra special.
