Shoe capsule wardrobe summer 2023

I am back on my espadrille kick! Espadrilles are my favorite summer shoe because they are soft, and the fabric allows your feet to breath. Also, with planter fasciitis, you can wear espadrilles if they have a wedge and you also wear a support band on your foot. Test this out at home before leaving the house to ensure it works for your particular planter fasciitis case. Also, bring a backup pair of sneakers with your orthotics inside just in case the espadrilles and band aren’t cutting it. I leave my sneakers in the trunk of my car in case I need to switch them out. So far, I haven’t’ had to do that! Yay!

Green, in any shade, is huge right now, so I picked up these mint green dunks when Nike offered design-your-own dunks. It will be fun to wear mint green sneakers this summer. It is such a pretty color!

My summer will be fairly casual, so I am not including my high heels in this post. Of course, I do keep a classic black pair in my closet just in case!

Which types of shoes are you loving this summer season?

Thanks for stopping by!

We finally have summer weather! Love that! For the summer 2023 season, I am looking forward to keeping things casual and simple. I updated my shorts wardrobe to include two pairs of denim shorts in different washes and also a fun pair of lightweight pants to wear on foggy days, or when the weather is slightly cooler.

My tees and tops are casual this summer too. I have gravitated towards shades of blue and green for the summer months. Since investment dressing is hot right now, my personal style is in a happy place. I have always been a huge advocate for investment dressing and spicing up a seasonal wardrobe with one or two trendy pieces. This summer, I am forgoing the trendy pieces and sticking to basics.

In addition to shorts and lightweight pants, I have dresses from last summer which will work perfectly again this summer. My dresses are all extremely affordable and priced under $50. When you hear the term “investment dressing” you might think this means purchasing expensive items, it does not. Investment dressing is about sticking to pieces which transcend trends, fit well, and offer good quality. You can find this in affordable clothing! Love that! Here are the pieces from last season and last year I am wearing this summer:

Accessories are understated and classic for the summer season too. Stay tuned for my shoe and handbag capsule wardrobes later this week!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous summer!


Favorite dim sum in Cupertino

casual cupertino street style

wearing: sunglasses / large hoop earrings (under $100) / spring sweater / jeans / bracelet (under $50) / nail polish / handbag / sneakers /

There is a new dim sum restaurant in town! Koi Palace Contempo might be new to Cupertino, but it is already a mainstay here in the San Francisco Bay Area. When I heard they were opening a location in Cupertino, I was overjoyed! They have the best dim sum!

Two of my favorite items on the menu are the mushroom shumai and the lobster har gow. Yes! LOBSTER har gow. Ooooh, so good! We definitely enjoyed everything we ate and left overstuffed. I will be back again for sure!

If you are local to the Bay Area, check out the Koi Palace closest to you, you will love it! If you are here in the South Bay, be sure to check out the new location at Cupertino Main Street. It is so good!

FYI: The fork was a serving utensil; we ate with chopsticks. Just for the record.

It was literally the first spring day of the day, weather-wise, when we decided to try the new Koi Palace Contempo location inside Cupertino’s Main Street. I decided to wear my spring sweater, which I have been dying to wear for two months! It was perfect with jeans on this spring-like day. So glad spring has finally arrived!

Have you been enjoying this new spring weather? I know I am!

Thanks for stopping by!
