Fantastic Flat: Splendid Newberry Flat

⫩⫩⫩

splendid

Soft, supple suede and cushiony sole, makes Splendid’s Newberry Flat one of my new favorite finds. Available in a multitude of bright colors and everyday neutrals, it is hard to choose just one.

My first purchase, Sand (pictured), pairs well with everything and works well with my work wardrobe. However, I am already contemplating a next purchase in Punch (bright red) and, of course, Black.

This simple ballet flat looks delicate and girly. The suede is so soft I was afraid they would loose structure quickly. However, I am pleasantly surprised that they are holding up so well after very long work weeks.

Finding a simple, comfortable flat is not as easy as it looks. These fulfill all your basic everyday needs, wrapped up in a simple and elegant design. Try them – let me know what you think.

Perennial Swimwear: J.Crew String Bikini

∞∞∞

The string bikini is a staple of summer. Comfortable and versatile this style of swimwear will never stray from trend or fashion.

I purchase at least one J.Crew String Bikini per season. They are simple, honest and perennial. A straight-forward style that fit the same each year and continue to be available in trendy colors and patterns.

A string bikini combined with a mix-and-match approach to swimwear is a great combination to find your perfect suit. First, decide what you want to hide or flaunt and go from there. For instance, if you are trying to minimize a large bottom, purchase a dark color. If you want to draw attention to a flat chest, tie the string bikini in front rather than the back. If you want to elongate the legs or torso, adjust the ties on the sides accordingly.

There are so many ways to make this bikini work for you, just bite the bullet and try-it-on. Ugh“The Dreaded First Swimsuit Try-On of the Year”. The best advice I have been given: Before you step foot into a dressing room with bikini-in-hand, make sure you are tan. Fake-it with a quick spray tan or at-home application. Trust me! It will make the experience less terrifying.

Current Obsession: Zara Coating Trousers w/ Zips

Zara Coating Trousers w/ Zips

I recently pillaged Zara’s end-of-year sale and found these Coating Trousers with Zips. I was immediately attracted to them in the store, but hesitant – due to having sizing and fit issues with Zara’s trousers in the past. For some reason, their trousers are always baggy in the oddest places… knees? I bought a size smaller because I wanted a tighter fit, but am now terrified to wash.

I love the zipper detailing on these trousers. They are made of a thin coated-cotton that is flexible and comfortable. I have been pairing them with everything from a white tee to white oxford.

Other colors are currently available online and on-sale. However, I recommend trying-on these trousers and experimenting with a couple different sizes.
