Denim shoes for spring 2016 are a huge trend! Denim on denim, and denim everything, is a trend we have been watching grow over the past few seasons. For the spring 2016 season, it has exploded! This is the season to wear denim on denim, denim handbags, and of course, denim shoes!

With the move towards athleisure, and casual dressing for the spring season, denim shoes are a great alternative to canvas, leather, and suede for the warm weather season. Denim has a casual vibe, which also translates into a “cool” factor. This makes denim shoes a fresh, and easy way to make a fashion statement this spring season. Love that!

I love how denim high heels look with casual clothing. They offer all the benefits of a high heel or pump, yet offer casual flair due to the denim fabric. I definitely need to get a pair this spring season!

Denim espadrilles, and slip-on sneakers are a great casual shoe for everyday this spring 2016 season. They look fabulous with shorts, jeans, midi skirts, mini skirts, and jumpers. I did indulge in a pair of denim espadrilles for spring! I cannot wait to wear them with my warm weather, casual outfits!

Denim on denim is a continuing trend from last year into this year. Denim shoes are a great way to rock the trend if you don’t like a chambray shirt paired with a denim skirt or pants. They give the denim on denim look, without wearing tonal denim. This is my preference. I am not big on wearing tonal denim outfits. I like denim shoes paired with one other denim piece. I feel like it is a fresher take on the trend.

What do you think of denim shoes for spring 2016? Is this a trend you plan to rock as we move into warmer weather? Or will you find another way to incorporate denim into your spring wardrobe? Leave a comment below and let me know!

Christian Louboutin Sheer Voile Lip Colour review

As a fan of Christian Louboutin nail polish, I was smitten when I heard the iconic footwear designer was launching a line of lipsticks. As soon as Christian Louboutin’s lipstick collection hit store shelves, I scoured the collection for the perfect first tube; the Christian Louboutin Sheer Voile Lip Colour.

Of course I would pick a sheer lipstick! I am a bit of a sheer lipstick addict. I prefer sheer lip colors over mattes and creams. I love a touch of color which mixes in with my natural lip to create a shade that matches my complexion. Sheers tend to do exactly that!

Since the fall season was nearing when Christian Louboutin launched his lipstick collection, I decided to purchase a lip color which would fit perfectly into the autumn season. Private Number fit the bill!

Christian Louboutin Sheer Voile lip colour in Private Number is a medium brown lipstick. This color blends well with fall’s color palette, and offers a neutral hue which is easy to wear with everything. Love that!

Private Number has turned out to be a fabulous color! I find myself reaching for it everyday. This lip hue works well both day and night; making it quite versatile.

As someone who purchases sheer lipsticks about 75% of the time, I have tried a LOT of sheer lipsticks. Christian Louboutin Sheer Voile Lip Colour is a fabulous sheer. It has more pigment than most sheers, almost offering cream-like coverage; of course, without the stickiness of a cream, or thickness of a cream.

Christian Louboutin Sheer Voile Lip Colour acts like a sheer, feels like a sheer, and yet offers thicker color coverage than your average sheer. I love having Private Number as an alternative to Chanel’s Melancholie for fall; another favorite sheer of mine. While the two colors are similar in the tube, Chanel’s sheer lip color is much more sheer than Christian Louboutin’s sheer lipstick. This gives me the choice of an ultra sheer, versus an almost cream sheer. Love that!

Christian Louboutin Sheer Voile Lip Colour is also moisturizing. I did not need to apply any lip balm or chapstick underneath the lipstick; nor at any time during the day when I have worn this lipstick.

One heads up if you plan to travel with a lipstick by Christian Louboutin. I had mine in my carry-on for my flights to and from New York for fashion week. When I went through control at JFK, I was stopped and pulled aside for a bag inspection. Turned out they thought my Christian Louboutin lipstick was a weapon! It was quite humorous when they discovered it was just lipstick! So, if you check a bag, you might want to throw Christian Louboutin’s lipstick into your checked bag, instead of your carry-on; unless you are up for a little adventure!

 I have fallen in love with Christian Louboutin Sheer Voile Lip Colour in Private Number. I am looking forward to adding more colors to my lipstick wardrobe each season from his sheer voile collection. I’m in love!

Christian Louboutin’s Scarabee, limited edition, nail polish collection, offers luxurious and unique colors with warm, golden undertones. The collection includes Voilet Blue, Green Bronze, and Nude Pink Gold.

Christian Louboutin Nude Pink Gold nail polish is a fabulous color for the summer months. The mixture of pink and gold within the polish creates an unusual neutral, which is anything but basic; and everything fabulous. Love it!

Christian Louboutin Nude Pink Gold nail polish offers a shimmering medium pink hue with vibrant golden undertones. The pink and gold play off of each other, creating a color change polish which looks different inside, and outside. Love that!

I tested out Christian Louboutin Nude Pink Gold nail polish with two coats of color, one base coat, and no top coat. The nail polish is incredibly long lasting. It took eight days to chip! Now THAT, is fabulous 😉
