This one is a bit out there even by my standards but it has become to prevalent to ignore! Cartoon prints are hot, ranging from cheap Mickey Mouse tees to Spongebob by way of Moschino. Cultural kitsch as it might be, when even high end lines like Givenchy are getting in on things, it will likely stick around for more than a season. Admittedly, the bright yellow stuff is a bit beyond my reach but I do really like the subtle Mickey and Bambi prints. Kawaii.

I was a little behind on spotting this trend but I’m on it now. But here we have it: the triumphant return of the Adidas Adilette slide. I guess this is an offshoot of that whole normcore thing but these I approve of. They are black and white, super simple in form and comfortable. Hello holy grail footwear. Get them now to enjoy for the rest of the summer. xx

Hi guys! It’s hot here finally – like for reals hot this time – and I for one can’t wait to spend most of this weekend
on a beach or on what we call Beer Island. Fingers crossed that this all actually happens! Have a great one. xx

White boots always seemed too 80s for me but lately they have kind of caught my eye. I guess the bootie-as-summer footwear trend has just caught on and this was it’s natural progression. And why not? These still have a summery feel while offering a look that is much sharper than your typical sandal. With the summer stuff going on sale rapidly, it shouldn’t be too difficult to track down some on sale right now that you can wear right into the fall.
