The Ultimate Must-Have Item by She Craves

The next ultimate must-have item in our collection comes from Her Craves a super interesting fashion blog that I am following. Are the espadrilles also on your list this season?

My ultimate must-have item for the Spring/Summer seasons has to be espadrilles! I bought my first pair a couple of months ago and I’ve found so many ways to wear them. They are perfect to pair with jeans and a t-shirt or even a casual chambray dress. During the Summer especially, I love a very casual, laid-back style. Shorts, t-shirts, simple dresses—and all will look so great with a cute pair of espadrilles!

Here’s how I pair them with skinny jeans and t-shirts. Below is a denim-on-denim look, complete with my espadrilles.

Not only do these shoes complete a look, but they are SO comfortable. I could wear them all day long. Even though they are completely flat, I do think they offer enough support to get me through even my longest days in the office. Also, since they are closed-toe shoes, I can see these being the perfect shoes for chilly Summer nights or working as a transition shoe when Summer is ending.

You can find my pair of espadrilles (only $45!) and a few other pairs I’m currently craving right now below!

Make-Up and Hair Inspiration from Valentino Couture

I have written about the amazing Valentino dresses from the couture collection for Fall/Winter. Why not get some inspiration from the make-up also? The main idea was to keep it simple, Pat McGrath said  “It’s very light, natural shading, a little bit of gray around the eyes and white pencil inside the eyes, a little highlighting on the lids and cheekbones, mascara on the top lashes only, a little bit of rouge on the lips, and a groomed brow with just a little bit of pencil,” she explained as models stopped by for a last-minute check. “It’s just really pretty,” McGrath concluded.

And those loose tendrils and thin braids! Amazing! Very Valentino-ish!
