We’re Head Over Heels for David Bromstad’s Collection for Naturalizer!

bromstad

Okay super exciting… A couple weeks ago I got to LIVE CHAT with David Bromstad about his new collection for Naturalizer! I had so much fun and even got to ask him a couple questions. I hope someday I can meet him in person because his joy and passion for life is so inspiring.

I have always loved David’s taste in design and art. This handbag and shoes collection for Naturalizer is no exception!!! The gorgeous floral print he designed is so light, bright and just screams SPRING!!! You can’t help but smile when you see this gorgeous print…

I had a hard time picking my favorite items from the collection, but finally decided a handbag was the way to go… Pictures really don’t do this bag justice… It’s just gorgeous.

How To Wear Bright Colors for Spring

It’s time to pack away those dark, wintery colors and bring on the pastels, neons and other bright colors for spring! We are seeing more bright colors than ever this season but it can be overwhelming if you are used to wearing neutrals. Don’t worry, incorporating bright colors into your spring wardrobe is easier (and less circus-like) than you think!

HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT PANTS:

Pair brightly colored jeans or pants with a basic striped tee, a chambray shirt or denim jacket and nude flats. Easiest outfit EVER.

HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT SHOES:

Pair bright shoes with denim skinnies, neutral blouse or tee (think white, gray, nude, pale pink), a neutral blazer (like navy, black, dark gray) and a brightly colored necklace or other bright accessories for a hint of color in your ensemble. Check out the bright accessories below for ideas!

HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT ACCESSORIES:

If you are afraid of color, start with some fun, brightly colored accessories like this coral scarf or yellow bubble necklace. Pair them with anything you would normally wear from a sundress to jeans. Mix and match! I like to carry a bright bag or colorful wallet like the one above from MyWalit. It just screams happiness!

HOW TO WEAR BRIGHT DRESSES:

If you are ready to pull out the big guns this spring, shop for a brightly colored dress in one of this season’s hottest hues like neon yellow or bright pink. Pair with a denim jacket or neutral colored blazer and nude heels for a look that is both fashion forward and ready for spring!

Whats your favorite way to wear bright colors? Are you afraid to step outside your comfort zone?

What are Juils?

You know that feeling you get when you are walking barefoot in the grass or on the beach? You get that same “feel good” mood-lifting effect from wearing Juil’s Footwear. Wearing Juil’s is like the next best thing to being barefoot.

 

I reviewed a pair of JUIL Mesa sandals last spring and honestly, I wore them ALL SUMMER LONG. They became my favorite pair of sandals. I even found myself wearing them around the house as slippers… So comfortable and actually just quite addictive.

Aren’t they cute?!

So of course I was dying to try a pair of their new ballet flats! I received the Juil The Wing Tip Women’s Ballet Flat, one of three ballet flats they now offer in addition to their large selection of sandals.

juil the wing tip flats

First off, these flats are wicked cute! What’s not to love? Perfect shade of brown, soft and supple design, stretchy elastic to keep them on and a cute wing tip design on the toe. Absolutely just the cutest flats I’ve seen in a while!

I got size 7 (I normally wear a size 7 in flats and 7.5 in other styles, but they only come in whole sizes). Well, I should have gotten size 8 I think! I recommend if you wear a half size that you size up because these do run a big snug. Just something to keep in mind!

Price: $99

Buy Them: juil.com, Amazon.com, Get them on Nordstrom.com

Each pair of JUIL shoes are made with their exclusive Energy Flow Technology™, containing copper conductors (cute little dots) that connect your bare toes directly through the outsoles.

How To Wear Wedge Sneakers 3 Ways

Wedge sneakers are a huge trend for Fall 2013 / Winter 2014 and that means there are so many different pairs to choose from, it can be totally overwhelming trying to find a good pair. Then once you’ve found the perfect pair of wedge sneakers, what do you wear them with?!

No worries, I put together 3 outfits that are similar to outfits I’ve actually worn recently with my wedge sneakers. I have the Naturalizer Paitlyn Wedge Sneakers in “antiba green suede”. When I first took them out of the box, I thought they looked narrow and were concerned about how comfortable they would be. And then I put them on. And then I died and went to Heaven from the sheer amazement of how ridiculously comfortable they are and how easy they are to walk and stand in. It doesn’t even seem scientifically possible, But once you put them on, you’ll be a believer too.

I chose green because I wanted a unique pair that would stand out apart from the crowd. They come in black leather, taupe suede and dark brown leather as well if you want something more neutral and easy to pair.
