King of the Katwalk

 

In the world of women’s shoes, there is one king that reigns over every other brand. That king is Jeffrey Campbell. His designs may seem funky and outrageous, but really can be rocked by any daring gal out there. Above are some of my favorite pics. The pair I am DYING to purchase are the pair in the top left corner, the Rum Moto Boot $175 (exclusive to Nasty Gal). I think they’ll be putting a dent in next weeks paycheck. Just wish I could try them on first though! 😉

California Dreamin’

 

This weekend was a great one! I got to work at the restaurant all day during the Beer Fest (which lead to some very interesting convos), go to a surf contest, see some old friends and of course down a delicious authentic Mexican burrito! I hope y’all enjoyed your weekend as well!

BLACK + WHITE OBSESSION

 

Right now, more than ever, I am OBSESSED with the black + white trend. This trend is timeless and looks great accented with gold accessories and a soft pink lip! Check out my picks below!

Clockwise: ASOS Playsuit/  Stella & Dot Studs/ Rouge Coco Shine/ Kirna Zabete Blazer/ Black and White Oxfords/ Rag & Bone Booties/ Stripped Skirt/ Gorjana Chevron Bracelet/ Marc by Marc Jacobs Bag.

Finding Pinspiration

 

When I need help finding outfit inspiration, I look to Pinterest. It’s a great place to easily look at styling ideas from designers, fellow bloggers, celebrities and more. The Pinterest board I post to the most is My Style. This board is a compilation of inspiring looks from all over. Above are some of my favorite Pinterest looks I plan on sporting this fall. I love the long full skirts, tweed jacket (I just ordered one) and the white blazers (I’ll have to get one of these babies). Where do you find your inspiration?

“Sperry” In Love

 

Yesterday I purchased these little beauties as a back-to-school gift to myself and I’m “Sperry in Love.” I have always loved the look  (and comfort) of Sperrys, but have never quite found a pair that personifies my style like these little babies. I am not much of a tennis shoe person but need to do a lot of walking on campus so these are a perfect comfy alternative. What the picture doesn’t show is that the shoe has a perfect melody of patent, suede and animal print paneling. Can’t wait to wear ’em with everything! Get your own here!

Beautiful Booties

 

The one trend I’m extremely excited for this Fall are booties! Lots and lots of them! I’m always a sucker for boots (believe me I have plenty), but I think the booties trending right now, I like more than past seasons knee high and over the knee. Booties are versatile (not to mention, it’s a FUN word to say). You can wear them right now with shorts and as it gets colder into fall with jeans and tights. Also, many of these lil’ beauties offer a bit of a chunky heel which can add some height without being a “real’ healed shoe. I’m loving the selection (and prices) the site Piperlime has right now. Above is a collage of my favorites. I’ll most likely end up getting a pair (or two)! 😉

E-mazing Etsy

 

I’ve known about the online shop Etsy, for quite some time but haven’t fully looked into what they have until now. Etsy offers a unique blend of vintage as well as hand-made eclectic finds. While surfing the AMAZING site, I found many things that I MUST HAVE. Vintage Chanel bags, adorable handmade jewelry and that leather messenger bag that would be absolutely perfect for school! I have fallen IN LOVE with the site and plan to purchase many of my favs (shown above). I will most likely open my own shop considering I have made a lot of jewelry, art and other little knick knacks!

More to come! Xx
