From My Style Book

It’s a gloomy day here in Minneapolis so I’ve been playing with my shopstyle and stylebook apps (again). It’s so fun to browse through hundreds of items and then put together dream outfits. I created four great looks for spring. They’re fun, a little flirty, and contain a variety of price points.

I love this floral print top. It has so many amazing colors you can pull into other pieces. It’s a great look for hanging on the weekend or for work.

Xhileration White Wayfarer Sunglasses $12.99
Mossimo Pearlynn Espadrille Wedge $34.99

This is my “date night” look (although you could wear it to the office). I adore the leopard print. The darkness of the denim and the black patent platform are very sexy, and really dress up the outfit.

On The Wedge

If you live in Minnesota, it might be hard to imagine spring shoes with all this snow. But it’s March now, which means a new season is right around the corner (yay). One of my favorite spring and summer shoes is the espadrille rope wedge. They are sexy, fun, comfortable, and adorable. I can remember my mom wearing similar styles when I was growing up, so I guess there’s a sense of nostalgia there as well. What I love about them is that they work with almost anything. Jeans, dresses, shorts, skirts-add an espadrille and you have instant style. I happened to take a lap around the shoe department at Target and was stunned at the variety they had to offer in these sandals. Here is just a sampling of what they’re featuring this season.

Mossimo Patience Espadrille Sandal $24.99
I love a good slide. Super easy to take on and off, and the platform is so comfortable.

Mossimo Pearlynn Espadrille Wedge $34.99
Love these!! The gladiator style is still on trend this season, so these are a great bet.

These are the Christian Louboutin Barcelona Gladiator Platform. Kate Beckinsale wears these and I have always wanted a pair. The Pearlynn is almost identical and much less expensive.

Mossimo Twyla Espadrille Wedge $24.00
The floral pattern is super cute and this shoe is available in other prints. The perfect footwear for a summer date night.

Mossimo Pam Rope Wedge with Braided Strap $24.99
These are a great neutral wedge and can be worn with practically anything. The thick, braided ankle straps make them super sexy.

Jennifer Aniston is often seen in a very similar pair from Stuart Weitzman (the Alexa)

Xhileration Teresa Espadrille Wedge $29.99
The patent leather gives it a very edgy feel and the color combination is awesome.

All styles (except for the Barcelona and the Alexa) available at Target

I don’t know about you, but spring cannot come fast enough. Guess it’s about time I get that pedicure!
