One of my main Summer staples, when it comes to fashion, are sandals. Cute flat sandals, with details on them. I have officially refused to wear plastic flip flops. You know the ones that go on sale at Old Navy with different colors. I used to collect them so much I would have doubles of each color. I got rid of all of them. Why, you ask?
Well now I feel like they make my outfit look too casual. I'm a girly girl and even when I'm wearing a white tee and jeans I still want to feel glamorous. Is that too much to ask? I don't dress up as much as you probably think I do, well actually I might. People are constantly asking me how to style simple outfits. I always wear one accessory that makes my outfit look like I put a lot more effort into it than I actually did. It can be a purse, a neckless, or even lipstick. But who has time for that everyday? I certainly don't and the easiest way to always feel and look good is by having a cute pair of flat sandals with small embellishments on them, and wahlah! That's how I always get compliments, buy cute shoes. They don't have to cost a lot just look cute.
I even put it to the test. One day I wore rubber pink flip flops with a casual outfit and no one even noticed my cute floral top, then the following week I wore that same outfit. Instead of the pink flip flops, I wore a simple pair of faux leather beige sandals with spiked embellishments and received really good feedback. I want to feel comfortable not look too bummy, even though that's okay sometimes.So the only time I wear those rubber flip flops from Old Navy is when I'm at the beach and don't care if they get ruined from the sand and water. I literally now own one pair of grey flip flops specifically for the beach. You should try it! Last year I scored a good deal at Target on a cute pair of cognac flats with gold detail for $9 and wore them almost everyday in the summer. People would constantly compliment my outfits. So instead of buying 10 pairs of rubber flips flops I invested my money on these super cute flat sandals.
I received happy mail today. I sometimes forget what I ordered online, but that's the exciting part. It's like Christmas morning every time. Well, technically Christmas midnight since that's when my family opens presents. Anyway getting off subject. Online shopping can be very addicting since you can buy it easily with a simple click. Then the fun continues until you get it in the mail. I know I'm not alone on this. I'm that creeper waiting for my mail man to come by ha ha. Here's what I got in the mail.
I also received new items that are now part of my fashion collection on Markkit! The color of the berry top looks too red in this picture, but it's a fuchsia pink. It's so Springy and Summery I love it! This is some of my favorite type of fabric for hotter days since it's going to keep me cool. Have you lovelies bought something from my Markkit collection? I love seeing the pictures you send me when you style it! It brings me so much joy. You can shop the Belinda Selene Collection on Markkit here.
