Today I’m styling flatform espadrille sandals for a casual summer outfit perfect for the modern mom about town.
Well, this is it! The final day of my 22 Days of Summer Fashion style collab with Cyndi Spivey! There was a point in the middle of this challenge when I honestly thought I wasn’t going to make it to the end, but now that it’s here, I can’t believe it’s over. Ha!
For my final post in this series, I have a super casual outfit featuring a huge trend this summer — flatform espadrille sandals. I love this trend because it gives you the extra height of a wedge without much of a heel drop. They can be heavy, but they’re generally quite comfortable to walk in.
These shoes are selling out everywhere, but there are tons of variations on this trend, and you can certainly find a pair if you poke around. I’ll link to a bunch of options below. I tried to find some less expensive ones, but I didn’t come up with much. Feel free to leave your recommendations in the comments.
I kept it simple with a casual summer outfit that is something I’d typically wear working from home and running the kids around on a warm summer day. This is the Sleeveless Linen V-Neck from LOFT, and right now everything in their store is 50% off with the code JULY4TH. The free shipping on all orders promotion ends tonight, so take advantage of that while you can! I like the relaxed fit of this top, and the neckline is flattering without being revealing.
I typically pair navy with white, but I decided to wear my rolled hem jean shorts for this post. They are a light enough blue that there’s some contrast against the shirt, but they keep the outfit casual and less fussy than my white jean shorts. I’m not one to shy away from wearing white, but I don’t feel like I have to be as careful when I’m wearing blue denim.
I love how this crossbody bag almost exactly matches the color of my sandals. It is an old color, but this bag is still available in updated shades.
R Minkoff is getting in on the 4th of July sale action and there are tons of cute styles on sale if you’re in the market for a new handbag. TONS of blush and pink bags are marked down, and the Mini M.A.C. in Biscuit is a great neutral for summer. If you’re in the market for a neutral tote, this Unlined Tote in Almond is stunning.
Alex and Ani sent me a little birthday gift — this cupcake charm bracelet, one of their new pull chain bracelets, and a ring with my birthstone.
My birthday is tomorrow, and I’ll be 44. I’m not one to be coy about my age. It is what it is. I can’t say that 44 doesn’t sound crazy old sometimes, but I’ve been in my 40s long enough that it should no longer be shocking. I try not to think too much about the number and focus on being thankful for every day that I’m healthy and strong.
I finished off the outfit with my Dalton Initial Pendant and large hoop earrings, although later in the day I swapped out the long pendant for my 3-disk necklace. I decided I preferred something in the neck of the top rather than hanging down in front. Something about the shape of the neckline and the sleeveless style didn’t quite seem to work with this pendant.
At any rate, this is an easy summer look that feels put together without being fussy for my casual mom life. I hope it inspires you to find something in your closet that makes you feel confident even if you’re just hanging out at home with the kids. It’s amazing what throwing on a few accessories and a pair of cute shoes can do for your state of mind!
