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!
Loft espadrilles , sandals, wedges, Valentino Espadrilles, Kenneth Cole New York espadrilles
This year Met Gala had a gorgeous theme: China: Through the Looking Glass. Here are some of the Best Dress A-listers in my opinion:
Jennifer Lawrence in custom-made Dior Couture column dress
Amal and George Clooney in Giorgio Armani and John Galliano for Maison Margiela
Sarah Jessica Parker in self designed H&M dress and a bejeweled, flame-themed Philip Treacy headpiece
Emily Blunt in Prada and oh those earrings
Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe – both in Valentino

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!

Valentino’s spring campaign ads are featuring Freja Beha. She is again smiling in these ads. I think she has a great smile.
