I love the chic simplicity of white anything, particularly when it’s paired with denim. Each weekend, it’s guaranteed you’ll find me in some variation of this look because it can be tweaked so many ways based on where I’m headed and if I’m carrying two little ones in tow.
The toughest decision is the footwear. It needs to be functional — I mean bloggers who share similar looks with heels or mega wedges?! I just can’t — however I also want it to be cute and show my personality. I recently shared two ways to style a linen dress and today, check out one minor change — the footwear — for two casual looks when everything else stays the same.
I’ve been gravitating to these pineapple espadrilles by Soludos (love this brand), and in lieu of my flip flops I’ve been trying slides. I’m not apt to spend bigger bucks for a J. Crew version when this Target pair looks so good for under $10 and I even found a camel pair from Old Navy during a sale for about $12 (bam! They’re awesome). When it comes to inexpensive sandals (or anything for that matter), pay attention to the details: do the seams look straight? How is the quality of the faux leather? Avoid too many flashy details that can have wear issues.
