Rise and shine, friends! Today is going to be a beautiful day. I can truly say such things, because 1) I'm still on vacation, 2) I'm still in California and 3) I'm still on vacation. 😁 I have so much catching up to do with sharing trip photos, working on some fun travel guides and showing ya what I've been wearing on vaca, but I've been too busy lounging around and not wearing makeup...WIN.
I'll get to all of that^^ eventually, but for now...I'm super excited to be guest hosting the Trend Spin Linkup with Laura from Walking in Memphis in High Heels and Erin from The Fashion Canvas! Today's theme is summer shoes.
My goal with shoe shopping is always to find unique shoes at a price that won't break the piggy bank. Sounds like a decent goal, right? Well this season has been so hard! For some reason, it's been difficult to find super cute shoes at an affordable cost, so when I stumbled onto these from Modcloth, I snatched them up ($23.99 🎉). They've been on sale for a few weeks now, so I keep thinking they'll sell out, but they're still available in (almost) every size...evidently the best kept summer sandal secret. Well the jig's up, cause I'm sharing them with you!
There's something about this shift dress that takes me back to the 90's...elementary school feels, no doubt. And POCKETS! Last I looked, it was available, but it's been selling out, so if ASOS has your size, you better grab it up! Linking some similar cold shoulder looks below, just in case.
I've already given my spiel about these sandals! I love the sole on them...it adds an athletic flatform feel, even though I paired it with the most feminine shift dress ever! They're hot pink (we're talking highlighter bright), but you can almost pretend they're a neutral and pair them with anything and they just work (I know, sounds weird). Their texture is similar to Melissa shoes (so if you've felt--or smelled--have you smelled those things?! Another "sounds weird" situation, but srsly), but no comparison with the price. Plus, did I mention SALE?! Yea, I think I did. P.S. I'm usually either a size 8 or 8.5 and the 8 fits me PERF.
Now that I'm on the Melissa shoe topic, I did a search to give you a reference if you're not familiar, because I just love this brand. Well, I literally found the MOST Melissa shoes at a discounted price...I need all of them, so I'm assuming you do too. Super dramatic and I'm sure you think I'm joking, but a few of these bad boys are sitting in my 6pm shopping cart. Sooooo I'm linking even more summer shoes here, since this is a trend spin...I just wouldn't be a good friend if I didn't and I can't live with that.
This eyeshadow has been my go-to lately. Since it's lighter on the eyes, I've been pairing it with a bold, bright lip. Happens to be one of my fave shades!
