this little look served as what we will call my 'birthday suit' for a full day of the big 3-0 celebrations that my dear friend lauren planned a few weekends back-- we started with a gorgeous brunch [insert heels], followed by a cake reception, and then made our way to the block street block party[queue teva swap] which is an awesome local festival for day drinks x live music x yummy snacks.
if you can remember, i styled this beautiful leather sheath last fall [seen here] with a button up and OTK boots-- only reaffirming my personal style motto: invest in key pieces that you love x get creative on how to stretch the wear. i think of it as a fun challenge / puzzle: "how many ways can i possibly style this thing" which always helps justify the spend on finer items. . . do you agree?
when it comes to weekend wear, i've been playing on the sporty side of things as of late-- and i'm pretty sure these little teva flatforms singlehandedly sparked the obsession. these orange cuties have been on serious repeat, and pairing them back to other sporty pieces has seemed like the right play [get it?]. old school tevas stir up major nostalgia, taking me back to simpler days growing up summering at the lake... but take it from me, these new styles are far more than boat shoes. pretty soon you'll be hooked like me and want a set in every colorway [at generous price points like $40- 80, you might as well snag a few] score your own pair here... trust, you won't regret it.
