Pleats are here for another season.

While I love the leather take on the pleated skirt, I am school-girl giddy for this cotton twill number. Balenciaga puts an edgy twist on what we know of the pleated skirt. This one — army green, thigh-skimming and crafted from a firm cotton twill for a structured look.

So many fantastic outfits just waiting to be created around this skirt.

Stop.

Seriously, I can't go on. Without these, that is.

The Clarita bow-embellished burgundy velvet sandal by Alexandre Birman is timelessly stunning. Wear with jeans, formal attire and everything in between. Hello!

Glorious flowy prints!

It's where my head is and what my body wants to wear.

This may be the only thing that excites me about summer. There are so many beautiful options, in various styles and hem lengths. Looking at these just makes me happy. 

The advantage to wearing a bold print like one of these is the minimal accessories that wrap around it. In fact, depending on location, you might even go barefoot!

The temperatures are heating up! Time for a pedicure and a new pair of sandals.

These handmade beauties by Ancient Greek Sandals feature a gorgeous tobacco colored suede with leather ties. The Alcyone is touted for its fit and finish. And the price is unbeatable!

Oh the endless outfit pairings these conjure up.

While there aren't many Pantone color palettes that I don't like, I am especially digging this season's palette. Rose Quartz, Peach Echo, Serenity, Snorkel Blue, Buttercup, Limpet Shell, Lilac Gray, Fiesta, Iced Coffee and Green Flash. Yum! And let's talk color pairings — Rose Quartz + Limpet Shell or Snorkel Blue + Fiesta or Peach Echo + Rose Quartz or Serenity + Lilac Gray. Loving the options!
