Summer Shoe Trends 2016

A few things fashionistas love and can never have enough of is shoes and bags.   What is it with women and their shoes, who knows but we love them.

So today I’m sharing a few trends I’m spotting from the runways, from bloggers, from the red carpet, and from every day life that everyone is wearing.  These aren’t things that are “SO 2016” that if you shop them, you’ll be totally out of style in 2017.  These are fun and versatile looks that can be worn with jeans, (blue, black, or white), shorts, skirts, sundresses, and so much more.  Some, in fact, can take us even in to fall!  Let’s take a look and go shoe shopping!

Some of the looks we see on the red carpets and fashion shows are a little more glam then most of us would wear on a day to day basis, but we get inspiration from places like these.  But these are all at the forefront of what is current, what is trending, yet transitional as well to go from the end of this spring to even fall (winter for the booties too).

Which are your favorite?

Now I’ll just tell you right her right now upfront.  Being a mom of two, I know there are days that are more challenging than others.  One thing that you won’t find on the list below is a little bit of peace and quiet, a little less sass, and a whole lot of love, hugs and kisses. Those are the best things ever.   But, since we can’t buy that anywhere and package it up with a big pink bow, these things would please me as well!

Spring Style: Off The Shoulder Tops

This spring one of the hottest looks is off the shoulder tops.  It’s one of those styles that has made a comeback from decades ago.

Worn casual or dressed up, it’s a look that can go anywhere.  Off the shoulder tops can come in solid fabrics, printed fabrics, with a sleek fit or a peasant look.



You can get runway looks without having to spend thousands to get these styles.  The Outlet Shoppes at Oklahoma City has this same look at a fraction of the price.  I’ve pulled some tops from Forever 21 that can be worn many ways.  Pair these with blue jeans, white jeans, shorts, skirts, and wear these tops for a fun flirty look.  Showing a bit of shoulder is a look that can make heads turn.

Pantone 2016: Rose Quartz Serenity

In case you haven’t figured it out by now, if you’ve noticed the lighter shades around you, Pantone’s color of the year for 2016 is this loveliness.


For the first time they selected 2 colors, rose quartz and serenity.

“A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude.

For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.” – Pantone

Aren’t these glorious?  So lovely, so serene, and from how our society and culture both in the US and globally seem to be in such disrupt, calm and serene is just what we need. The psychology of the colors around us play a huge role in how we feel.  And these calm soothing colors I think are just we need for this place in time.

Store Spotlight: Charming Charlie

Charming Charlie The Outlet Mall

You’ve heard me share lovelies from Charming Charlie in a few shopping guides here, there.  But have you seen this new store that has joined the family of amazing stores at The Outlet Shoppes at Oklahoma City?  I wasn’t sure if you’ve made it out yourself, so I thought I’d be your tour guide for the day.

(Twist my arm!) What lady doesn’t love to find all her bling and clothes to go with it all in a one stop shop?  That’s what I feel Charming Charlie is.  It’s a boutique dripping with accessories, but has sprinkles of fabulous pieces of clothing to go with it.

You’ll find the most casual looks to cocktail attire.  Sweaters, wraps, blouses, to even evening party dresses.  And the accessories to go with them.

The biggest thing that stands out to me is that in it’s beautifully crisp clean white environment, the store is organized by color.  So you can find pinks in one section, blacks in another, reds in another area, everything is color coordinated.  So they’ve done the matching and accessorizing for you for whatever look you’re addressing, based upon color.  Isn’t that brilliant?  No more digging and hunting and searching.  You can easily find what you are needing and get right to shopping.
