Super Sleek And Chic Pairs Of White Shoes

White shoes have been holding down the favorite looks of style mavens all year. They’ve been must-haves, especially this summer. You see, a white sandal can be the perfect companion to our favorite summer hues. I’ve found white shoes a tad overpowering on me, though, until I found and bought my first pair–a sleek white/clear sandal (number 1 below).

I bought my white sandals to complement a couple bright yellow outfits (like this dress that’s on mega sale right now and my yellow shorts from this post). I’ll be sharing those looks soon. The sandals are such perfect complements. There’s something so sophisticated about a pop of white on a barely-there sandal.

If you’ve also been wanting to try a pair of white footwear, I’ve rounded up the sleekest pairs below. Number 1 is a personal favorite. For me, it fits true to size. It’s more on the narrow side of a medium width  sandal, but the translucent straps give a little.

The Best Cheap Cycling Shorts To Try The Trend

2019 fashion trends threatening to take all your coins? Mine too! Luckily, there are some styles that you need not splurge on. Cycling shorts, for example? There’s no need to spend more than $30 for a fabulous pair. I’m rocking a style I got from Zara for $19.99. They’re simply perfect–fit and fabric. Many of the zara styles are selling out quickly because of the summer sale going on right now. So, I’ve also rounded up all the best styles at similar price points at the end of this post.

Still on the fence about bike shorts? They’re easier to wear than you think. My go-to styling pairs the shorts with oversized tops or oversized blazers. The result is totally chic. Want more? See me style the denim sister of bike shorts–Bermuda shorts–here.

These Sandals Make IT Easy To Try The Clear Shoe Trend

Love it or hate it, the clear shoe trend is sticking around in 2019. To be honest, I don’t have the fondest memories of rocking plastic shoes the last time they were a huge trend. But, I was younger and went all in with a closed-toe pair, which inevitably made my feet sweat because of the lack of breathability.

This time around, I’m approaching the trend a lot smarter–with sandals, of course! Sandals with a clear detail can look elegant and leg-elongating. And, since they’re sandals, they practically have a built-in ventilation system.

Get In On The Palm Print Trend With This Under-$30 Set

With spring in full swing, we’re officially cleared to rock all our favorite tropical prints. I’m so excited to see one of my personal favorites–the palm print–back again in 2019. There’s more. I stumbled into a palm print gold mine recently. Every piece is under $20, and they can easily be mixed and matched to create super fun combinations.

What I’m Wearing:

Blouse | Pants | Belt | Sandals (similar) | Trench coat c/0 | Lip: Pat McGrath “Elson”

I chose two items, a sleeveless blouse and crepe pants in different but complementary palm prints. The result is a sophisticated, coordinated set. I’m wearing the look belted with my Gucci web belt. When the blouse is tucked, though, the combination looks like a sharp jumpsuit. I’m so here for fashion versatility like that!

By the way, did I mention that the blouse is only $9.99 and the pants are only $19.99? Y’all, the lines between high fashion and affordable fashion are becoming increasingly blurred. This combination looks more luxe than its price tag.

Psst…I tried a new red lipstick, and it instantly became a favorite. If you’re shopping for a fabulous blue-based red, simply try on Pat McGrath “Elson”.

I wore my palm print combination on Easter Sunday in lieu of an Easter dress. I added the trench (now on sale!) in the morning because it was freezing in St. Louis. It warmed up pretty nicely though.

A Super Chic White Sneaker Outfit For Spring

I’ve had my eyes on a sharp-looking pair of white sneakers this season. They’re by Superga and are a cool update to a classic white sneaker. Get this. The sneakers have a fun platform sole in raffia. They’re essentially a cross between a sneaker and the perfect summer espadrille.  Win-win situation, right? They’ve been on backorder, but I can’t wait to get my hands on them. In the meantime, I’ve been imagining all the fun outfits I will create later. I can rock them with my bright suits (like this one). Here’s a cool example of another white sneaker outfit I plan to rock.
