There’s one thing I’m constantly struggling with: how to perfect the day chic look for a weekend outfit. Most of my outfit posts are in heels, because let’s be honest, a girl looks and photographs a little better in heels. But life can’t be entirely conquered in heels and weekends we crave comfortable outfits that let’s our bodies rest of a long week.
Enter the Espadrille. This Spanish shoe rose to popularity this summer and has been seen everywhere, but keep in mind only a few companies have the authenticity. Espadrilles USA is one of them, offering hand-stiched shoes that are made in La Rioja, which you may know because of their wines and the Tempranillo grape varietal. These sandals are similar to slip-ons and look chic with dresses, jeans or shorts. They are made of jute rope soles which offer the shoe eco-frienldy qualities.
I’ve been wearing this dress non-stop and I finally have had a moment to photograph it. It’s a body conscious dress, which I’ve been really enjoying for wearing with flats. I feel dresses that are loose flowing look best with a bootie or heel. The dress is from The Shopping Bag, a new website I came across that has a ton of cute pieces and ships worldwide. Tons of cute options for a breezy weekend outfit.
Lastly, the bag! O M G, this bag is perfection. Since receiving it a couple weeks ago at the Sole Society opening, I’ve been wearing it nonstop. And the price is ridiculous for the quality, at only $50. And it’s big enough to bring your night time pieces out with you too – I often carry heels in my bag, no joke.
If you need to take this outfit from day to night it’s quite simple – add a strappy heel (these are from Zara but these are cute) and add a leather jacket, faux or real leather, whatever you prefer. Then add a bold lip to add more of a dramatic nighttime look – I purchased Burt’s Lip Crayon again because I loved the color so much and it’s natural.
