Head Over Heels

Life is too short to wear boring heels.
HEAD OVER HEELS – If I learned anything from Carrie Bradshaw, it’s 2 things: 1. Shoes are a girl’s best friend and 2. Bright colors + bold patterns make for the perfect statement heel. While sneakers may be having their moment right now, heels will never fail to make my heart go pitter patter. Whether it’s mules or sandals, every fashionaholic should own at least one pair of striking stilettos.
It’s a known fact that shoes can make or break an outfit. Heels are an accessory that can single-handedly elevate a look from average to fabulous. Of course high heels aren’t realistic as a day to day shoe for running errands, but if you are trying to step up your outfit, heels are the perfect solution. And trust me, I’m all about comfort – which is why I absolutely adore these Gucci multi-colored leather sandals. As gold pointed studs trail up the spine of the heel, smaller silver studs adorn different areas of the heel offering a sassy contrast. The red, blue, and green color blocking smoothes out the edge and brings a playful feel to this shoe.
I decided to pair these killer heels with an otherwise casual street style look. And since shorts season is coming to a bittersweet end, I wanted to spend a little extra time with my distressed Forever21 jean shorts. These jean shorts are not only super affordable, but also uber adorable. On top I wore a black asymmetrical one-shoulder crop top. The ruffle detail on the shoulder sleeve is classy, while the drape-like sheath on the other side is sexy – the perfect summer combo.
To add a little more color to my outfit, I opted for this adorable Gucci shoulder bag. Vibrant flowers and a sweet butterfly are embroidered onto the front like patchwork. The bag’s color palette really complimented the shoes and essentially brought this whole look to life. And of course, no outfit is complete without a pair of my favorite sunnies! These oversized Max Mara shades are my current go-to. Matte satin acetate sunglasses featuring a subtle cat-eye silhouette – they are simply fabulous.
