Sandal Season

Girl in sandals

I love sandal season.

Because sandal season means summer is here.

And I love summer and all it entails.

I’ve recently done some sandal shopping and I am ready for:

Jazz Nights at LACMA, Wine Tastings at Barnsdall Park,  El Fresco restaurant dining, Summer BBQ’s, flea markets, beach parties, Malibu, summer vacations, and weekend getaways.

I picked up the black and lilac sandals from J Crew.

A great gladiator style, with a smidge of a metallic heel.

I just couldn’t resist the lilac.

They’ve been fun so far and I am surprised at how many different colors they work with.

I thought I’d use the black more, but the lilac have proven to be more of a staple.

And with the $150 price tag (now on sale for $119), who could pass them up?

I also picked up two pairs at the Neiman Marcus Shoe Sale after lunch at Mariposa with friends.

If you meet 3 of your best girlfriends for lunch during a shoe sale, it is a guarantee that you are coming home with some new shoes and a pop over in your belly.

I love the color combo of the Lanvin Flats, a little white, brown, and black. They have a bit of a heel so they work with everything and the ankle strap gives the shoe some sex appeal without going over board.

I also couldn’t resist this pair of Marni sandals.

 The cherry color is gorgeous and they just so happen to match my favorite necklace from J Crew.

And finally I needed a new pair of sandals with a heel that I could actually walk in.

I found these Elizabeth and James sandals and they fit the bill.

These Chanel Sandals are next on my list.

I love the chain embellishment.

They add a chic element, but the flat heel makes the ideal for running around.

I am super excited that one of my favorite clients ‘N” approved hot pink curtains with her Hague Blue Walls.

It is going to be divine.

My client “E” let me sneak some in her living room which made me super happy.

Hoping to do more.

In the meantime

Here are some of my favorite images featuring my color crush.

The pop of hot pink on the chair cushions make this room.

And no wonder the room is so chic, it belongs to one of my style crushes, Minnie Mortimer and her husband Stephen Gaghan.

Typically not a fan of the hot pink/black combo.

It tends to look at little  too “Gallery Z”  for me, but this entry works.

The hot pink pillows on the blue gray sofa gives the room pizazz.

I love the navy and hot pink on this throw and the serape vibe makes this a winner.

I love this shot and her outfit.

If only I could walk in heels.

I haven’t done that in 10 years.
