Lace It Up
I'm obsessed with thigh high boots and heels; they've got so much attitude and make such a strong statement. These gorgeous heels from Jessica Buurman have some extra details that I just adore: subtle faux snakeskin pattern (these are completely synthetic!), slight sparkle, silver metal hoops down the front holding the laces in place, and a beautiful curvature on the sides of the shoe itself that add another level of visual interest. They're comfortable, super chic, feel very well made, and reasonably priced.
I took my Vlena heels out for a golden hour cocktail in Beverly Hills and found this magical street on the way back to my car with stunning (yet smoggy, from the fires here) view of downtown LA. Palm trees, golden sun, a warm breeze, and a slinky outfit for a cocktail is my idea of a perfect Summer evening.
If you haven't checked out the Jessica Buurman online shop, you're in for a treat. They've got all the hot trends you've been seeing on top fashion bloggers Instagram accounts and more. It's a great place to start planning some additions to your wardrobe for next season. I've already filled up my wish list!
I paired my Vlena heels with a long sleeve black wrap dress from Reformation. I've been getting into more monochrome looks but playing heavily with mixing textures. I love the minimal vibe I can create that lends itself perfectly as a platform to showcase each piece. Try it for yourself and see what you think!
