Cut It Out

It’s officially spring and that means it’s sandal season!  So what is trending in for spring footwear? The options are as diverse as a Las Vegas buffet!  Okay, I’ve never actually eaten at one, but I’ve heard they can get crazy!  So let’s break it down into some of the top trends:  pointy toe flats, Lace-ups, flatforms, sky high platforms, colorful beauties, mules, and killer gladiators.  The bottom line is that it’s all about making a statement with your shoes! The bolder the better!  Shoes are like the icing on the delicious cake so make sure they are just as yummy as the rest of your look!

For my look I am rocking some killer lower heel lace-ups. When putting together an outfit I try to come up with a theme as a general guide to where I want to go with a look.  Themes I use often include:  highlighting an interesting feature of a particular piece, playing with unique color combinations, mixing prints, and playing with proportions or silhouettes.  Since I had just gotten these sandals I wanted to put together a look that would showcase their cutout detail.   Playing off the lattice design on the sandals I paired them with a really special top that also features a similar cutout pattern.   And since pretty much every look is better with a great blazer and ripped denim, those were the natural choice to finish this look.

    I noticed the lattice design on the t-shirt right away, then the slits on the jeans, they work amazingly well with your new sandals! At the same time, I love how you wear bold bracelets instead of dainty ones, it balances the delicacy of the rest.

    My process of putting together an outfit is very similar, starting with one idea (color, shape, an accessory) then build around it with what I have.
