Celine’s glove shoe isn’t news to the fashion world, in fact it debuted almost a year ago in the S/S 15 collection, but as other (more affordable) brands are taking on the trend it’s finally becoming the major vogue in shoes. Not dissimilar from the ballerina flat, the glove design is a more modern version that also comes in heels– and in every color imaginable. Yes, they’re way out of budget, but hey, if the glove fits…you might just be guilty of a major fashion splurge.

Summer is all about relaxing, and your style should be no different. A pair of denim overalls is the epitome of relaxed summer style. Oversize or 70’s-style, it’s a go-to for a comfy and chic look. Its stylish cousin, the overall dress, has made quite a few appearances as well, but it’s not nearly as versatile if you like spontaneous summer romps like me. True to their name, you can throw overalls literally over anything: a bikini at the beach, a bandeau and heels for drinks, or even a sweater and booties to transition into fall. Fashionistas are all over the overall trend, and you should be too!

Sunglasses may be a warm-weather necessity, but only mirrored sunglasses give you that cool factor all year round. Truly a statement accessory, mirrored sunnies come in all different shades–especially neon–to make you stand out. All the cool kids are doing it; with the help of these sunnies they can attract attention to themselves without anyone actually seeing them, creating the ultimate element of mystery…throw a pair of these on and you’re Almost Famous.

She wore an itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie, mini skirt? You can’t wear a yellow polka-dot bikini in town, but a mini skirt is probably the closest and most tasteful way to show some skin in summer–it’s no wonder they’re so hot right now. Easy-breezy flowy minis are a personal fave of mine, but a more structured mod mini is just as cute–bonus points for bright colors or florals. Let your legs breathe and you’ve unlocked the secret to a chic and comfy summer outfit…

AlexaChungSerpentineGallerySkinIsInSummer is here and skin is in! There are two solid options to take advantage of the warm weather with this trend; if you’re more of a free spirit, go bare with crop tops and strapless dresses, or if you’re more conservative choose styles with sheer details. This trend may be specific to summer, but you can always count on it coming back every year, so go ahead, stock up on those off-the-shoulder (Reformation) dresses!

For our first West Coast family reunion with little kids (and big kids too!), I’ve got one thing on my mind: Disneyland. Upon researching our upcoming trip to the original magic kingdom, I discovered the Vans collaboration with Disney, and was pleasantly surprised to see that Mickey and Minnie are making a comeback. As timeless as they are, this isn’t the first time that Mr. and Mrs. Mouse have trended in fashion. Vintage anything is always in vogue among street style stars, but Mickey and Minnie are near and dear to any big kid’s heart, making them especially fun and youthful in the sometimes serious world of fashion.
