Spring/Summer Espadrilles

 The sun is out and it is time to get our daily dose of Vitamin D! I haven't worn shorts in such a long time that it was weird to see my pale complexion~ My shorts are distressed boyfriend shorts, but I sized down to get a tighter look rather than to have a baggier fit. I also cuffed it because I don't like my shorts super long. I got them from Topshop about a year ago, but they are the best shorts ever because of the high-waisted fit.

 Because March is my birthday month, I thought I would give myself an early present as I saw these Chanel Espadrilles at Saks Fifth Avenue and thought they were the cutest summer shoes! It is ideal and a nice change of height instead of wearing boots all the time, plus it accommodates a lot spring and summer wear! These Chanel Espadrilles run small so I had to size up to a 39, but it fits perfectly. It is also lined with leather under the canvas exterior, making the shoe sturdy.

 My top is from American Apparel. Stripes this season seems to be trending, so go out and grab your striped nautical look to add to your wardrobe.


Stay tuned for my next blog post :)

The Boyfriend Shirt and Oxfords

 Hooray for the SoCal sun shining down on us. That means its time to do a 180 spin on our wardrobes! I'm finding it hard to transition though...BUT this outfit is a good start to keep cool.

Starting off with my basic grey vneck and black pants, I kept it casual to go have a late lunch at Larchmont Bungalow with one of my besties. I wanted to have a cover up, but it was too hot for a jacket, so the boyfriend button up was a good way to add a pastel color to my dark scheme. To really add a touch of summer, I finally busted out my cutout oxfords that I got from Dolce Vita.

Stay Tuned for my Spring/Summer looks! Thanks for reading :) 

For students out there, good luck on your Midterms! One more to go for me!
