Brand Envy: Kotur

I am having some serious brand envy over Kotur. The brand is known for their minaudieres (small decorative accessory) and clutches, and I love every single one. With a variety of fabrics and and styles — glittery, sparkly, animal, beaded, feathered, metallic — what’s not to like? And they even have a make-your-own clutch! These make for the perfect statement to your simple outfit. Even a tiny little box can turn heads. Enjoy! xx

Head to Toe: Sweet and Striped

Bag:

Bag: Kayu Anne Straw Clutch / Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti Yvette Pumps / Pim + Larkin Sriped Double Layer Mini Dress

When you go for all-over pattern, it’s best to keep the accessories simple and neutral. I love the rich blue in this Pim + Larkin dress and the mix or horizontal and vertical stripes. Pairing it with a pale pink shoe and clutch will create the perfect outfit. They don’t have the be the same exact shade of pink, but as long as they blend well together, don’t clash with the dress, and don’t clash with each other, you are golden. Finish everything off with a diamond stud or small drop earring, and you ready for any spring soiree!

Two Things: Beaches and Booties

First thing… when you’re packing your beach bag this summer, make sure you stock it with the essentials. There is nothign worse than listening to music on the beach when your power dies. And bring speakers is always so cumbersome. ban.do has created the perfect solution with their adorable and colorful tech accessories.

Second thing… I am always looking for a cute warmer-weather bootie — something perfect when my winter boots are too thick and heavy. I absolutely love these Jeffrey Campbell Wyatt Booties from Anthropologie, and they even come in two colors. (Do you think it’s OK if I order both?)

Espadrille Heaven

It all started with a little thing called Chanel.

Chanel may not have been the first, but they certainly helped to revive the trend of an espadrille flat. Expect to see a version of these shoes on everyone throughout the Spring and Summer. They are the perfect compromise between sneakers and sandals — when you need flat shoes but I little more coverage and support, these are your go-to. And you have dozens of patterns and prints to choose from, so you can still make your own individual fashion statement. This is definitely one of my favorite trends of 2014.
