We had glorious weather in Southern California this past weekend – the beaches were packed and I spent the majority of my time outside. Whenever the weather starts to turn warm, it’s no surprise I reach for easy, comfortable pieces. This wide leg jumpsuit looks like a maxi dress, but has all the comfort of wearing pants. It was the perfect choice – and oh-so-fun – for walking around downtown after a quick stop at one of my favorite cafes.
I recently read an article about the items of clothing you no longer buy when you hit your 30’s. Stilettos topped the list and I have to say I completely follow suit. These days I’m all about flats or low block heels. For summer, I was looking for a good pair of leather sandals and came across designer Katharine Page. Using sustainable manufacturing and ethical business practices – key elements for me when choosing clothing and accessories – her sandals are inspired by equestrian sport. To play up this detail, I paired them with a horsebit leather belt to cinch the waist and create a nice contrast to the voluminous jumpsuit. The criss-cross linen straps look great with dressier and casual outfits alike, and the padded insole is super comfortable. They’ll definitely be a great staple for the fun weekend trips I have planned this summer!
