Designers took a cue from nature this season by incorporating breezy palm-tree prints into their collections.

If you’re feeling a little pained watching the summer fly by from your office window, might we suggest a little sartorial salve by way of cheerful palm-tree prints from the Spring 2014 runway shows? More Designers sent models walking down the runway decked out in this tropical motif.

We love palm-tree prints because they transport us to the summer sands and warm breezes of vacations past. Plus, they make dressing fun and playful. Palm-tree prints are also the perfect alternative for women who find traditional florals to be too feminine.
These tropical prints have also hit our favorite stores. Check out a few of the pieces on our wish lists below and scoop up one or two for yourself.

BLACK SHOES

I’m not done covering Sydney fashion at least for this week (no worries, Milan Men’s and Couture Paris coming up soon).

With all the monochromatic looks one detail I noticed this time again, the shoes !  I haven’t seen that many black heels at once, especially the most simple version, an elegant heeled sandal with a simple strap that Gianvito Rossi and Givenchy seem to do best.

I love this type of simple heel, it will go with everything. The problem at least for me, my feet don’t look great in them, I’m yet to find the right strap placement for my toes, does this make sense ?

Here we go with many many shoes from Sydney’s fashion week, all in black, heels and flats.

Footwear designers may or may not have been thinking of Destiny’s Child singing “Bootylicious” when creating their fall lineups. But they certainly had booties on the brain. The collections were awash with ankle-high or lower calf-hitting creations, and their incarnations were many. Balmain did a regal, black and gold military style that featured a nine-strap closure over a gilded inset. Roger Vivier’s purple suede version sported cheerful pink, green and blue laces.Francesco Russo showed more detail than normal with a sexy open-toe and open-braided black number that had a hint of dominatrix.

I have an obsession: shoes. But I must confess: I have pretty little feet and often I buy, only sneakers, in the kids’ department! My size? EU 35/35.5/36, it all depends upon how the shoes fit!
However, spring is coming and with the good weather, on Sundays I like to go for a long walk . Must be honest: heels hurt so badly. The solution? I opt for sneakers and flats!
These are some of my fave pairs for the next seasons, all under €150,00!
As you can see my favorite brands of sneakers are Nike and Adidas. At the moment I’m really into Huarache and Cortez (Nike-girl of the season?/next purchases?) but I can’t abandon my beloved Superstar and Stan Smith!

Before Pinterest, there was Tumblr. And while many people use Tumblr as a blogging platform, I use{d} it as an inspiration board of sorts… and to upload images that were too risque or just didn’t make sense to post here at the time.

Though now it mainly collects dust with my Instagram shots – – because of Pinterest. But I scrolled through it last night and found so many gorgeous inspirational photos just lost in the oblivion of the internet that I needed to separate out a few of my favorites from the beginning in 2009.
