Shorts and Sanuk Espadrille Flats

It’s about that time of year. The temperature is beginning to rise to a gazillion degrees, and staying cool is becoming a major style priority. To get ready, I’ve added a couple new essentials to my wardrobe.

New shorts? Check! The J.Crew pleated crepe short was a sure-buy because it’s pleated, polished, and has a relaxed fit. Did I mention I purchased the shorts for under $30 in-store? That’s right! Forget the online price, these shorts are marked down to $49.99 (orig. $75) with an additional 40% off in-store. The orange color is also on sale in-store.

New flats? Check! Tis the season of the espadrille flat. And, the Sanuk toe the line flat, with its right-on-trend ikat print and cushiony footbed, will complete many summer looks, from jeans and a tee to sundresses. These flats are breathable, comfy, and chic.

    I have been following this blog for almost 2 years and have certainly made purchases based on what I've seen. Since I don't live in a big city, I've had to send my sister in Atlanta to the store to procure some items for me. This will probably be one of those times! These shorts look like they will last many season and serve as a great wardrobe staple. Thanks for all the tips! – Jennifer

      Thank you so much for letting me know, Jennifer! I'm so thrilled and honored to hear that I've been able to provide a little inspiration. And, yes, these shorts are so luxe…wait til you see the crepe material in person!

    I love those espadrilles. sometimes this shoe can come off as unattractive. Thanks for showing an alternative! – Tamera

      My pleasure, Tamera. I usually feel the same way about espadrilles, but the styles this year are so hip and chic.

    I love these shorts. What colour are they? Are they byzantine purple or deep riviera?

      Hey Ceci. The shorts are amazing. I'm wearing the byzantine purple.
