Happy Wednesday y’all. I hope you are all having a great week. We are back on the weather roller coaster here in Arkansas. It goes from 20 to 50 to 70 to snow to rain to sleet. I can’t even keep up at this point. I went and shot four looks for the blog, and it was literally 30 degrees and raining. Let’s pretend that it was summer and the sun was shining ;) I wanted to share the first outfit with you. I chose to wear a flowy kimono and pair it with a pair of pink loafers.

Outfit details: Tank // Kimono (on sale for $20!) // Jeans // Clutch // Loafers // Earrings, old (similar)

I think I’ve discussed my outfit philosophy before but if not, I’ll explain. I like to have at least one printed item in each outfit. Here, I took the floral tank and added a light, flowy kimono. This is essentially taking two of spring’s biggest trends and putting them in one outfit. Florals are everywhere! Be sure to stock up next time you’re shopping.

I love to shop for kimonos at the following stores: Torrid, Loralette, ASOS

Can we please talk about this adorable pink loafers? They are under $50 and surprisingly comfortable! They are great for work or to add a pop of color to any outfit. They fit TTS. Do I need to get the light blue pair now? I think so ;)

Since there’s a lot going on in this outfit, I went with a pretty neutral clutch. This monogrammed one is one of my favorites. It goes with EVERYTHING!

Happy Monday! AND I’m so thankful for some sunshine today. I’ve really been getting into the spring spirit lately, even though the season doesn’t actually start until later this month. We can never be too prepared though, right? I wanted to start a series here on the blog: The Guide to Spring. As we go, I will share round-ups in different categories, and today’s is all about spring shoes!

I have been trying to re-do my spring shoes collection and be sure I have all of my bases covered. Nothing is worse than the CUTEST outfit without the perfect pair of shoes…am I right ladies? ;) When I went to Seattle, I got a litttttle crazy in Nordy’s so I thought I’d share the shoes I picked up while I was there. Also, I’ll share some other popular pairs I’ve seen on social media and in magazines.

Birkenstocks

Just go ahead and scroll now if these aren’t your style. As far as I’m concerned, these are a staple here in the South. I can remember wearing Birkenstocks way back in jr. high, and I would always get a new pair when I would travel to Florida with my grandparents in the summers. You could pretty much call us the Birkenstock family, because we all had multiple pairs. Birkenstocks are classic. If you choose the right pair, it will be your go-to neutral sandal and a favorite in your closet. I LOVE the soft footbed pairs, and I like how they mold to my feet.

Flats

Is there any better combo than a pair of flats + leopard? No. Leopard is honestly my favorite neutral. I’ve had several pairs throughout the years, but I’m loving this current pair. The pointed toe really adds that little something extra to really make these leopard flats pop.

Tennis Shoes

Pastels, including blush + lilac, are VERY popular this spring. I have always been a New Balance 574 lover. I had the gray pair all throughout high school and college. These are such a classic look, and I’m loving the blush pink for spring! Pair them with yoga pants, jeans, or even white jeans for a cute look.

I am actually pretty proud of myself for getting three distinctly different pairs that I feel go with just about any outfit I could put together. And be sure when you’re shopping to not neglect a couple of black pairs, because you never know when you’re going to need them.

Speaking of shoes, I picked up this pair of espadrilles in Dallas last weekend. Espadrilles are everywhere! I’ll be doing an entire blog post about that shopping trip, so stay tuned ;)

Thanks for reading. Be sure to leave a comment on what types of The Guide to Spring posts you’d like to see. I’m thinking rainy day must-haves, how to wear lilac, etc.

A big welcome to Wednesday which means we are halfway through this week! I’m excited because the week seems to be flying by. It might have something to do with the fact that I was off on Monday ;) If you’ve been shopping around online like me, you might’ve noticed that a major shoe trend for this summer is slides. They are everywhere and come in pretty much every color, pattern, and texture. I thought I would share some of my favorites that are all under $50.

Black Bow Slides: Target

I wore these on Memorial Day afternoon for a cookout. I got lots of compliments on them, and they were a fun addition to my thrown together outfit. I know that it doesn’t seem like black is much of a summer color, but I got this color because they will go with everything. Plus, when you’re wearing a lot of bright colors, it can help balance out your outfit. I also think they would look adorable in the below outfit idea:

white denim // palm tank // black bow slides // clutch, sold out color (other colors) // necklace (black w/ gunmetal)

slides, slides of summer, brown slides, summer, crisscross slides

Crisscross Slides: TJ Maxx (similar here & here)

In keeping with my theme of slides that will go with everything, I picked up the above pair from TJ Maxx. I love finding a good deal ;) This pair is similar in a gorgeous gold metallic. I like to wear these with my dressier cropped jeans. I love the laser cutout detailing, and I feel like it dresses these slides up. **FUN FACT** I have a birthmark on my left foot/ankle, so it always looks a shade darker than my right foot (if you were wondering).

I just grabbed this pair from the Nordstrom sale, and they should be in this week. I love the metallic gold. I can see myself wearing them with cropped jeans, a cute maxi dress, or with white skinnies. I will be sure to show you on Instagram when they come in the mail. I really wish I had a Nordstrom in my state, but it would probably just mean more harm to my wallet ;)

I want to hear from you:

-Which pair of slides is your favorite?
