A crossbody bag in a handy size and neutral color is one of the best fashion investments you can make. Speaking from personal experience I can say that I get the most use out of my black crossbody bags because they’re so absolutely practical for running daily errands. Valentino‘s “Rock Lock” is a paramount example for such a versatile and stylish bag and I’d love to own it since I’m a big fan of Valentino’s stud adorned bags, but spending two grands on such a small bag? My budget can’t really take that kind of a dent I’m afraid.

Gianvito Rossi is slowly but surely taking my heart by storm with his shoe collections! I can’t remember anyone of his shoe styles lately that I wasn’t fond of. This woven multi-strap sandal, for instance, I like it a lot. It’s a couple of seasons old already, so I couldn’t find many details on it, but I’m pretty sure it would’ve been out of my price range anyway.

Forever 21 Braided Faux Suede Sandals

Apparently Forever 21 liked Rossi’s woven sandal concept, so they came up with a neat dupe version of their own. F21 ditched the bronzey metallic color and instead opted for more wearable colors, as well as a much nicer price tag, of course.

I don’t actively follow swimwear fashion, so for me to take notice of a swimwear trend, it really takes a lot of hype and medial exposure (yes, I have seen you, Triangl bikinis!) or a very, very beautiful bikini/swimsuit. Marysia‘s scalloped “Antibes” swimwear is easily both: beautiful and dearly loved by celebs and online influencers worldwide. The scalloped swimsuits and bikinis regularly get a fair share of social media exposure and are universally flattering for women of all shapes and sizes. Now if only they weren’t so darn expensive, the “Antibes” bikini set will set you back $272.

There’s nothing like having a nude pair of shoes to slide into during the warmer times of the year! It’s such a great color especially when it comes in patent and the color is so versatile it can go with TONS of stuff! So, you can see why these Jimmy Choo Phyllis Espadrille Slides are absolutely noteworthy to be featured! I can’t wait to have my ice cold drink next to the pool while admiring my feet with these bad boys on! Yet, retailing at $375 this might break the bank for some, so here is a more affordable option…

Steve Madden “Genisis” Espadrilles

This Steve Madden version has a slightly thicker band and a higher platform than the Jimmy Choo version, which I’m sure not everyone will complain about! And the price isn’t too bad either! Available in nude, black and red patent.
