CH2T Covets: I Spy Espadrilles

I spy with my little eye…espadrilles, espadrilles, and more espadrilles. I’ve honestly never been a huge fan of the espadrille sandal. I think the last time I owned a pair was in the 90s, and I was pretty content to leave them there – but that was before “The Great Espadrille Takeover of 2015.” I mean seriously, it’s everywhere (amirite?). Now, I’m not one to jump on just any bandwagon trend, especially when it comes to my shoes – but you can’t deny the cuteness factor of the new wave of espadrilles. Flats, this is.

CH2T Covets: Slip-on Sneakers Galore

Just when I finally get comfortable with my self-imposed “shopping hiatus” – bam, out of the blue another trend blindsides me.

I’ve managed to narrow it down to perforated vs. quilted – which sounds more like a toilet paper choice than shoe selection. Which actually just gave me an epiphany – quilted is way better, done and done…

Top 5 Pins of the Week: NYFW Spring 2015 Edition

Now that NYFW has officially ended, I’m rounding up just a few of the designers and trends that caught my sartorial eye. I must admit, I had a hard time choosing just 5 – but I’m a stickler for the rules, so head on over to my “What to Wear” Pinterest board for a few more picks if you so desire.

The chosen few boast a mix of bold patterns and structured pencil skirts, to floral dresses with the most ethereal lines. Safe to say it’s going to be hard for this girl to wait until Spring to don these looks. Besides, isn’t it pretty much spring 24/7 in LA? I mean really…
