While browsing through the photos featured in today’s style post, I can’t help but think what a refreshing change it is to see my right ankle in a pair of style booties, instead of the ugly gray medical boot that is acting as a cast for my broken ankle. For those of who don’t follow me on any sort of social media (you’re missing out) I broke my ankle last week when I was vacationing in the Hamptons. Of course, LivForStyle put style ahead of comfort and decided to wear a pair of high heels with her outfit one night and completely rolled her ankle. So for the past week, I have been wearing only one pair of sensible flat shoes on my left foot and on my right foot is the oh so beautiful walking boot. Luckily, I have some photos taken from the week before I became immobile to remind myself that I will be back on my feet in no time.
Today’s look is one of my favorite summer looks because it incorporates my favorite trend this season, embroidered denim. This outfit was packed in my suitcase to be worn when I was in the Hamptons, but unfortunately it stayed in the suitcase because I had to cut my trip short because of my ankle. But luckily, my ankle has not stopped me from wearing this look that features this embroidered denim skirt from Zara. Who else can’t get enough of the embroidery trend this season? From denim to dresses to accessories, embroidery is the best way to turn something ordinary into a little more eye-catching just like this denim skirt. I love how the floral embroidered pattern is subtle and just appears on the side of the skirt, making it a perfect piece for any occasion.
I paired a simple, olive colored tank from Cotton On to bring out the green color of the stems in the floral detail on my denim skirt. I highly recommend buying these type of effortless tanks in every color because they are perfect to pair with pants and skirts that want to be the center of attention.
Whenever I am just wearing a shirt or dress without a jean jacket, sweater, cardigan, or vest, I always feel like my outfit is not complete. I was looking in my closet for some sort of sweater to pair with this look and decided to ditch my usual cream sweater and opt for this beautiful light-weight, lace cardigan, kimono, duster, or whatever you would like to call it, from Target. The beautiful, ivory color looks great with the olive shade and denim.
I should have worn these neutral colored booties from Marshalls more on my Hamptons trip. Maybe these shoes would have saved me from a broken ankle. I love adding a pair of booties with a denim skirt for that western kind of look. Plus the cut outs featured in these booties keep your feet cool and sweat free, especially on those hot and humid summer days.
It was a pleasant surprise to see that my favorite art festival arrived to town last week, so of course I was eager to see if the brand Omi by Lise was showcased, and to my surprise it was. So naturally, I purchased another unique, hand-blown glass stone choker necklace. I love how each stone is different and when the sun shines on it, the stone reflects a variety of colors. I can’t wait to wear more of my Omi by Lise pieces in the future.
Well that wraps up another style post and a little update of my hot mess of a life. Let me know what are some of your favorite trends you are loving this season and how you incorporate them into your looks. Talk you all in my next post.
