Hello again, everyone! As promised, I am back with a second post today.
Per usual, sandals are being seen EVERYWHERE for summer. While it can sometimes be fun to get caught up in the latest of-the-moment trends, especially when it comes to shoes (um, hello, how effing cute are all the colorful pom poms, tassels, jewels, and oversized flowers this summer!?!?! I can’t even handle it.), it’s also important to invest in a few pairs of solid, neutral staples.
These 15 pairs above are guaranteed to be worn all summer long, with all kinds of different outfit combinations. My personal faves are 1, 3, 9, 10, and 13.

Which pair is your favorite? Do you have a pair of go-to summer sandals that you wear over and over again?

Hello again, everyone!!! My most sincere apologies for my elongated absence from my beloved blog. It has been a rather hectic and busy last few weeks, between packing, traveling, settling in and getting acquainted at my parents house, starting work, and enjoying my Memorial Weekend, I unfortunately had to put the blog on the back burner for awhile. But I am back now and will hopefully be able to post more consistently! :)
Today I am sharing my latest color crush which, as you see, is any and all shades of pink. This color crush has come on quite recently – I had never been particularly fond of the color pink in the past. However, I am loving the different hues of pink being shown in this summer’s styles, whether it be fuchsia, blush, magenta, or arguably the most popular member of the pink family, coral, I simply adore them all.
At the top of my list is the Juicy Couture espadrilles, the Mango Tasseled Necklace, and the Modcloth dress. That ASOS midi skirt is pretty to-die-for as well, but I just don’t know if that length would be flattering on me though. I had to include it though because it’s so cute and I want everyone else to see it and love it (and maybe buy it!).

P.S. In an effort to come back with a bang and somewhat make up for my absence, look for a SECOND post later today! You’ll have to check back to see what it is :)
