Awhile back I shared how I had fallen in love with gingham. And now this spring, I’m seeing it talked about as a returning trend. And can I say, I could not be happier! It’s so crisp and fresh looking, and it really screams spring to me. What’s fresher than white jeans and a gingham top? Or a sweet little gingham dress?
I don’t know if you have all seen the “It” flat that came out this Spring, but it is so cute! And right up my alley. It’s flat, it’s pointed, and unbelievably stylish. I first started seeing it on Instagram and Pinterest this Spring by several designers (Aquazurra started the trend, but Jimmy Choo also did a version). And because it was so popular through Spring and Summer, I predict it will stay around for at least the Fall. And, now high street has jumped on the bandwagon, and it comes in all price points (thank goodness!) Does it get any cuter than this flat with a pair of jeans?
One of my very favorite looks is pointy toed shoes, both flats and pumps, though today I’m going to talk about flats. As a mom and person whose job it is to shop (read; walk all day), I am almost always wearing flats. So you can bet I have been very excited to see that pointy toed flats are having a bit of a moment these days! There has been a plethora of new styles and one of the ones that’s hottest for spring is the “d’orsay,” which is flat out fabulous. For those of you who don’t know, the d’orsay is a shoe in which the sides of the shoe is cut away, revealing the arch of the foot. They are everywhere these days and as I’ve been wanting some new flats for spring, I knew I had to add a d’orsay style. The first d’orsay that I was aware of was by Jenni Kayne, a designer with a huge celebrity following. She does one adorable style in a multitude of colors (the leopard is particularly cute) but they are prohibitively expensive ($450). Here is her shoe in a great hot pink:
