I’m gearing up for a trip to Europe in a month, where I’ll be traveling, as well as graduating from my MFA program. And the deadline is getting close for me to nail down outfits for my graduation, thesis defense, and graduate reading of my novel. I need dresses for each occasion that speak to my personality and style, and this retro-inspired beauty by Sézane is right up there as a current favorite. Find it here for $185.
Instead of a little black dress this season, try something with a pop of color. A little red dress (Parisian no less!), is a great alternative. This beauty from Des Petits Hauts is just the thing to swing you from spring to summer. Find it here for $179.
Edgy, modern, and oh so comfy, these new releases from Beklina are a traveler’s dream come true. I have tried the new Beklina Tétouan Loafer (in black) on in real life, and I can vouch for the exceptional comfort of this $240 shoe. It’s well worth the investment. If you’re traveling this upcoming summer (or anytime before then) and will be doing some walking, you don’t want to look like a tourist, right? No sneakers allowed (unless they’re fashion sneakers like AllBirds.) This loafer is the perfect alternative. Its cork bottom and snug leather upper make for a stylish shoe that will attract attention, for all the right reasons. Find them here.
I'm a huge fan of Allbirds Wool Runners shoes. I have a grey and white pair and I pretty much wear them all the time. The Tree Runners light-weight option came out a while back, but I wasn't sure what I thought of them, style-wise, until I saw the above pair in person and heard from the wearer just how much she was crushing on them. For summer adventures, these are a perfect shoe to keep your feet comfy and cool. They'll also dry quick if you accidentally happen upon a rainy day. Find them here and keep your feet cool.
If you loved last year's leather circle purses from Baggu, but couldn't swing the price tag, you're in luck. Baggu has released a fall 2017 collection of beautiful purses, bags, and more, and among the new offerings are last year's beloved circle purses. But this time they're made in canvas and the price tag is perfect: $45 for the small and $65 for the large. Don't worry, the leather circle purses are still around, but if you're on a budget and want the same look but at a discount, this is your go-to fall purse.
