THE S/S 2014 SHOE

If there was an award for the most popular/favorite shoe of spring and summer, this year, the winner would most certainly be: THE ESPADRILLES!
Starting with straw at the bottom, most of the times, and continuing with anything you can imagine on top. Simple fabric, leather, mesh detailing, satin, suede, lace and even pony skin! Again, every brand and every store I checked has at least one pair. Sometimes you'll find them as simple flats, others as flatforms or lace-up shoes. I know there are also wedges, but I decided to stick to the flats today.
Remember the time I told you about the trend of man-repelling shoes? Well, this time, I totally get why all the fuss! Espadrilles are chic, comfortable, easy to style, suitable for any time of the day, perfect if you're not ready yet for sandals and flip flops and simply go with everything especially if they are more minimalistic like the ones from Chanel(above). I must admit I bought two pairs in the last month and I love them so SO much. Maybe it's because they make vacation look closer than it is, maybe because I can wear them in the city everyday and also take them with me when I go on vacation! It's my shoe crush I guess! Did you notice that some pairs from Zara and Mango look familiar? Hu-valentino-hu!
So, those of you who have been hesitating to get yourself a pair of espadrilles, I say, Go for it! For now, take a look at some nice pairs I found!

LET'S GO TO BERMUDA

?More or Less? #7 -bermuda shorts-
Yesterday we were talking about shoes that "repel" men, but today I thought we should steal their style! Bermuda shorts are another trend this season, but they are not new at all. Men have been loving them for years and so have some women as well. But I just never thought that they are flattering or that they fit in my style. Sure thing, if you have a "perfect" body then you can wear these and look good, but it's a fact that they are not the most feminine piece you can find. So, I decided to create another ?More or Less? set, styling in a chic and feminine way bermuda shorts. If I had to chose, I would definitely go for a vivid color such as turquoise or this hot pink(two of my favorite colors). I paired it with all white, a peplum top, two tone espadrilles and bucket bag. I really like the gold triangle necklaces because they simply go with everything and you all know my love for pieces like that. It's always a delight to find such similar products in such different prices. I mean, apart from the Stella McCartney espadrilles that have smaller mesh and leather, everything else looks pretty much the same. But the price sure doesn't! I like this look because it's simple yet not so much, and if you keep everything else, you can pair them with almost any bermuda shorts or any other bottoms for that matter. All these white pieces are staples and must-haves in any closet for summer, whether you choose the expensive or the affordable version. It's up to you if you want to spend 400 for Marni or 17 for Target yada yada yada.
