I am so ecstatic today because I have finally satisfied my craving for some new shoes! I picked up these pointed flats from Steven by Steve Madden the other day and I am completely in love with them (okay minus the fact that they’re a little painful to break in) but that’s beside the point! No pun intended. I just love the versatility of the combination of black and white. If you’ve been reading my past posts, you can tell I’ve been really feeling this monochrome color scheme! I feel like it’s a great transitional style for in between seasons!
I wanted to showcase these lovelies by keeping the outfit within the black and white color range. I kept it simple with some black cuffed trousers from H&M and my white American Apparel crop tank. I added the belt to add some finesse…and to also help keep my pants up because these are technically not meant to be high waisted but rather loose hip huggers!
My two cents on these shoes are that, for one, they have a great design. The texture of the material is sort of like a fake snakeskin, but the shoe itself is very sturdy. The only thing is that because it’s sturdy the front half and also the back strap digs into my foot for now, but I’m crossing my fingers that they will adjust to the shape of my feet in due time! ….and hopefully that due time means soon….but hey, there is that saying “beauty is pain” right?

As the cool fall breeze starts to seep its way into the summer air, all the shorts and crop tops begin to get tucked away to gather dust in our closet. To savor these last bits of summer left, I put together this outfit to celebrate summer fashion and all the fun, memorable times we all had this summer! This uber-bright multicolor crop top brings fun and color to this outfit as a nod to all the bright colors of summer. My white asymmetrical skort from Choies provides the perfect blank canvas to undertone the brightness of the crop top. Simple pieces with unique structures and cuts are a staple in my wardrobe! Pointed shoes are also another favorite of mine (as seen with my worn-daily Chloé dupe boots #noshame). They just look so chic and give any outfit a twinge of sophistication and elegance! I’ve actually been wearing lots of monochromatic outfits lately, but I realized that I should enjoy this season while I can (seeing as how the weather here will soon take a sharp turn downward) and wear more summery colors and styles of clothing!
So, friends, savor the end of summer and wear the heck out of those clothes you can only rock now during this time of the year!
This outfit is perfect for a stylish summer day out. Ever wanted to wear a turtleneck while it was hot out? Well, me neither, but this American Apparel crop turtleneck in burgundy is one of my favorite summer pieces! It provides a sophisticated silhouette while exposing the shoulders for a more summer-y feel. Because this top is cropped, it provides a quaint contrast between the covered up neck region and the slightly exposed stomach. I paired this with cream lace tiered shorts as well as a gold statement necklace and my favorite Michael Kors watch. When putting the colors burgundy and gold together, it gives off a very regal effect on the outfit, which is really what I was striving for since I wore this outfit while walking around all the famous places in Hollywood. This outfit is great if you want to look polished on a hot summer day without sacrificing comfort!
