Summer Espadrilles Are Here

Every summer the earthy fashionable espadrille shoe makes a come back. This summer you can find espadrille flats, espadrille wedges and everything in between. This summer, every big designer brand has their own take on the espadrille trend including big designer names Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Miu Miu, Balenciaga, and many others . If you are looking for designer espadrilles you should shop at Net-a-porter, Moda Operandi, My Theresa, or Shopbop. I’ve put together a list of my favorite stylish espadrilles. The espadrille shoes in the post fall in a wide range of prices. So there should be something for everyone, whether you are looking for chic on a budget or you are looking to splurge on the latest summer trend. I tend to fall in love with things regardless of their price point. I find some cheap plastic bracelets with bows raise my heart rate just as much as Elie Saab runway dresses pricing in the tens of thousands. That’s just me, not everyone agrees; and I know people who would disown me for my aesthetics first, brand last philosophy.

Let’s get started with our Spanish inspired footwear trend.

Shop The Espadrille Summer Trend

Summery Skirts from Shabby Apple

It’s almost that time of year again, summer time. Some people look forward to basking in the sun, while others dread the suffocating heat and cooping themselves indoors with the chilly air conditioning. Regardless of what camp you fall in, you will have to venture outside. Even if it is only from your car to the grocery store and your car to work. I fall in the group that finds refuge in the shady indoors but I am making an effort to evolve into someone that falls in the sun soaking lovers group. While I complete my metamorphosis, I will need a closet full of breezy and comfortable clothes to survive the South Florida summer heat. Shabby Apple’s latest line of midi skirts look like the perfect summer outfit solution. Their skirts are available in many different styles from informal to formal.

I love how they dressed down this bright fuscia skirt with converse and a mint plaid shirt. I can also see this skirt as part of a dressier get up. It shows how versatile midi skirts can be.

Pixie Market: Cute Trendy Clothes & Accessories

I found a new online store to add to my daily window shopping, Pixie Market. They have the cutest dresses and accessories. What I like about this store is the apparel they carry is trendy, yet it has a unique style. I haven’t seen the clothes they carry in other sites, which is exciting. After a while, I start to see the same dresses in several stores. I’m happy the brands have been picked up by many retailers; but when I’m trying to find unique things to share with you it gets tiresome seeing the same garments in every site. Pixie Market is a refreshing change to the constant repeats. If you want to wear something unique and lessen the odds of wearing the same outfit as someone else at a gathering, check out Pixie Market. I put together my current favorites from their site.

Amy Grey Stripe Dress

This dress reminds me of the traditional pinstriped dressed of the early 1900s; but with a modern sexy twist. You know, that era where women wore adorable little blazer jackets over long skirts and accessorized with parasols during their strolls around the park. This fashionable mini dress caught my eye because of the adorable white cuffs at the sleeves and the matching collar. It also has a cinched waist for a flattering look. Wear this dress if you are going for a classic beauty look.

Fashionable Sneakers: New Balance & Others

I must admit, I am the kind of tourist that wears sneakers around town. Come on, I’m there to take in all of the newness, not walk around all day in blistering feet. I remember when I had recently moved to New York City being told by the locals that they could spot me a mile away with my sneakers. It was a mortal sin in the fashion world but I stuck to my guns. I said and continue to say, “Comfort first.” I held on so long that the fashion world has come around and I’m grateful it happened during my lifetime. Fashionable sneakers are all the rage with designer brands releasing their own take on the designer sneaker including Valentino, Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and the list goes on. This post will be featuring stylish affordable sneakers. If you are in the market for designer sneakers in the $300s, $500s or $1000s head on over to NET-A-PORTER and search for sneakers.

I first started noticing beautiful sneakers when I stumbled upon J.Crew’s collaborations with New Balance and Nike. They created beautiful sneakers using the original sneaker styles; but using fashionable new colors.

New Balance 530 Trainer

The New Balance 530 uses different materials including leather, suede, and mesh. This running shoe has a brilliant combination of black, pinks, and purples. You can definitely pair these shoes with black pants and feel confident of your comfy chic outfit.

Shamrock Hue Dresses For St. Patrick’s Day

How will you be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this year? Our local Coral Gables pub, John Martin’s Irish Pub, will be having a block party celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. There will be fish and chips and other yummy food and drinks. There will also be a U2 tribute band playing U2 covers throughout the celebrations. I can’t wait for the festivities to begin. I’ve been looking for something green to wear in my closet but I haven’t found anything. So I’ve been window shopping green dresses online, looking for comfortable dresses. I decided to share my final contenders with you. If you’re looking for a St. Patty’s Day outfit you might as well take a gander :)

Dress for the Occasion

I liked this dark green skater dress because it has a fit and flare silhouette. Fit and flare dresses are always the most comfortable while remaining flattering. I also like the tiny cutout in the front. It gives the dress a unique detail.

Wednesday Wishlist: Dresses, Coats & Bags

Everyday, I scour a long list of my favorite sites and pin all the awesome things to my Pinterest Boards. (Follow me on Pinterest – user: PinkghostFL) I stumble on some pretty cool stuff but not all of it makes it to the blog. So in an effort to bring some more of my Pinterest finds to Cool Gifting I decided to start a new feature: Wednesday Wishlists. Essentially, this feature will have the items I have loaded in my shopping carts during my daily internet window shopping. I hope you find great gift ideas for others and yourself in these posts :)

Midtown Streets Striped Dress

This dress made it into my shopping cart once I saw the back. I always fall for dresses that have cutouts in the back. My first dress with a cutout back had a square cutout and it was made by Vans. Ever since, I always check out the backs of dresses for a unique cutout. When I saw the cute circular cutout in this dress, I knew I had to have it. It’s a lower cutout that allows you to wear a bra without showing your bra strap. Aside from the nice cutout, what sold me were those coral buttons down the back. What a nice touch! Finally, the color combination of beige, dark coral and white feels a little like neapolitan ice cream. Sweet!
