Casual, summer boyfriend jeans, have become my go-to on days when I want to be comfortable. They are loose fitting, the fabric gives, and they look more like I am wearing real clothing then running around town in yoga pants. Although boyfriend jeans are not what one would refer to as “slimming,” they are comfortable, and easy to dress up or down. Those facts alone make them a winner in my closet!

I have worn my summer boyfriend jeans with high wedges, low heels, and also flat shoes. In the pictures above, I wore my boyfriend jeans to Santana Row with a pair of espadrille/sneaker hybrids. It was very comfortable! I was with my two daughters, who both took these pictures, and knew I would be doing a lot of walking. The shoes, and jeans, were the perfect combination for walking, shopping, and spending time with my two girls.

We were at Santana Row so I could check out some Father’s Day gift ideas, and put together a gift guide for Father’s Day, which you can read online here. After we took pictures of my favorite gift ideas, we went to Lisa’s Tea Treasures for tea. It was so much fun!

If you have never been to Lisa’s Tea Treasures, I highly recommend going. The tea food is filling, and makes a great lunch. The service is fabulous, and it is a great opportunity to teach your kids table manners; if you have children.

How often do you serve formal tea at home? If you are like me, once every ten years-if that! Going to Lisa’s Tea Treasures is definitely a great opportunity to teach tea time etiquette to the kids. They have a kids tea which includes a small slice of cheese pizza, mini corn dogs, ice cream, and fruity tea. My daughters love it! You can see my meal on my Instagram online here. That was cannoli cake, and it was pure heaven!

Thanks for stopping by!

Denim shoes for spring 2016

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!

Spring 2015 wish list

Spring 2015 is on the horizon which means this is the perfect time to shop for the upcoming warm weather season! As styles shift towards a 1970’s vintage vibe, I find myself drawn towards accessories and make-up; perhaps because this is quickest way to update one’s wardrobe!

Since I already own flares and trouser jeans, I feel like my casual wardrobe can transition into the new season. What I really need are shoes, a handbag or two, and rose hued make-up! (Beauty spoiler: Rose scents and hues are hot for the spring season!) I also want to find a few knee length a-line skirts with a true 1970’s vintage look. I may also look for one of DVF’s famous wrap dresses to add to my wardrobe. After all, what screams 1970’s more than DVF’s iconic wrap dress!

Although the accessories on my wish list are not all a nod towards the 1970’s, they are on trend for the season and would work with my current wardrobe.

Also on my radar. Have you heard of Charlotte Tilsbury Beach Sticks, pictured above? They sound amazing. Charlotte Tilsbury’s Beach Sticks can be used on both your lips and cheeks. They offer a dewy, beach look. Definitely on my wish list! You can see a demonstration video here.
