Shift to The Mint Julep

When The Mint Julep Boutique reached out to cooperate with me on a giveaway, I was super excited since I've been eyeing this shop closely. I mean, who wouldn't? Check out their feed on Instagram and you will be bombarded with endless array of fashionable and trendy pieces that make styling easier. I love that their pieces are uniquely theirs - every piece has The Mint seal!

True to their commitment of quality and trendy pieces, this shift dress I got from the shop was of superb quality. I would not normally go for a shift dress - I am more of a bodycon or fit and flare dress kind of girl. But I just had to try this on! Aside from the great quality fabric, I cannot even begin to share how comfortable it feels on.

Fabulous Flats for Summer

Wearing high heels and pumps look fashionable but when it comes to comfort, it is an entirely different conversation. The things women do for fashion, indeed! By wearing high heels, you could also put yourself at risk of suffering from injuries. In the spring time, though, your fashion choices could change significantly. The focus shifts on wearing comfortable footwear to keep up with your day to day activities. It is also for this same reason why flats are popular during spring time.

Adding a pair of chic flats to your shoe closet is highly recommended for spring and summer time. If you thought flats are boring, think again. There are a growing number of women who are opting to wear flats in dressier outfits, whether for day or night. The best part about wearing flats is that they would be easy to transition from one season to another.

Check out below some of the recommended flat shoes you can wear during spring time to stay comfortable and look fashionable.

Strappy Sandals

 1 / 2 / 3

There is nothing like strappy sandals to amp up your spring style. The embellishment on current strappy sandals includes dainty bows, gold accents, exquisite floral details and many more. Since the weather can get hot during spring time, sandals can make your feet relaxed and at ease, no matter where you are headed.

Pointy Flats

1 / 2 / 3 / 4

Pointy flats have redefined the essence of day to night chic style. Nowadays, these shoe options are known for their versatility mixed with sharp sensibility and a modern flair. You can wear them with a tee and jeans or dresses! They are also quite flexible in terms of style because you can opt for simple styles, while you can also go for gorgeously detailed ones. But the highlight of them all: the opportunity to make a fashion statement while placing comfort as your highest priority.

Flip Flops or Slippers

This is the most comfortable of all these flat shoe options for spring. It is also the one that offers the most casual style. You can wear it with anything! However, it might be best to wear your flip flops when you are bound for the beach.

Which of these shoe options is your favorite for summer?

2 Ways to Style Durango Leather Purse

The moment I decided to take on fashion blogging, I was both nervous and excited. Nervous because I knew I had a limited amount of clothes to showcase as I am no celebrity who gets clothes for free! At the same time, I was excited because it was a great way to challenge myself to be creative with how I style my clothes. 

That is exactly what I wanted to showcase today. I was sent this Belle Star Purse from Durango. I picked it because of its ability to become a versatile addition to my wardrobe. I hate having to buy every type of bag for each occasion. So why not buy one that you can use different ways? The color also helps to render its versatility. It is neutral and can therefore go with almost everything. Thus, I came up with two looks that I like wearing this bag with. 

Aside from the bag, I would like to showcase two ways I've styled a floral top I recently got from HerBench. I love basic and simple tops like this. You can pair them anything!

Look #1

Top: HerBench / Pants: Jag Jeans / Purse: Durango (c/o) / Shoes: Mendrez

The first look is a casual ensemble and your typical day-to -day wear for running errands. I don't normally wear jeans lately (I prefer dresses and skirts) but when I do, I want to be as comfortable as can be. This top screams comfort in every sense of the word. Plus, I loved pairing it with my new fuchsia pointed toe flats from Mendrez. The Durango purse serves as the perfect finishing touch to the outfit because it is large enough to carry all of my essentials. It also comes with a detachable sling so I can wear it over my shoulder when I want to. 

Look #2

Top: HerBench / Skirt: Persunmall / Purse: Durango (c/o) / Necklace: Sheinside / Shoes: Mendrez

In this second look, I am going for a casual glam look. I paired the floral blouse with a cobalt pencil skirt and added some statement accessories into the mix (it's from Sheinside for less than $10!!). I switched the pointed toe flats with my new favorite nude heels for an elegant chic look. 

Which is your kind of style - 1 or 2? If you fancy getting your own Durango Belle Star Purse, do so now because it is currently on sale!


Summer Maxi Dress Wishlist: Dressve

At the risk of sounding like a broken record player, I am obsessed with maxi dresses. But during summer time, there is an extra incentive of wearing these long, flowy dresses due to the hot weather. Even when things get a little warmer than I'd like to, a summer maxi dress will keep me fresh and stylish. Even though I have a ton of these dresses already, adding some more members into the family is always a welcome treat. The website offers a comprehensive selection of all styles and colors of maxi dresses. In fact, they have choices from casual to formal maxi dresses!

Dressve not only offers beautiful extra long maxi dresses, but they are also reasonably priced. You can buy your own within the $20-$30 range, which isn't a bad deal. Summer might be close to wrap up in the country but I still have a new beach escape planned soon. I need to pick one or two of these. You can browse the full selection here:
