Casual in Summer Trends

The other day I was out and about running errands and came home to find one of my fashion magazines waiting for me in the mailbox. I love it when that happens. I look forward to each and every one of their arrivals. Happily, I poured myself an Arnold Palmer, kicked my feet up to relax, and began to thumb through the pages of my latest Lucky.

Though I'm not necessarily someone who follows trends, I think it's still important to be aware of them and I'm always interested in catching the key looks of the season. Lucky pointed out two hot trends for summer--grey and wedge espadrilles. To my surprise and delight, I just happened to be wearing both in the outfit below as I was reading the magazine.

Hopefully the sun will come out soon in Los Angeles...the weather here has been as grey as my dress!

On trend for summer:  Simple grey knit sheath (found at a vintage store as a floor length dress), Banana Republic pebbled bone leather purse tipped in burgundy, Colin Stuart nude suede wedge espadrilles, fuchsia silk wrap (found at a vintage store), silver hoop earrings, silver Raymond Weil tank watch.  
Revlon's Fuchsia Fever polish on toes.

You can find these shoes at Victoria's Secret right now and I highly recommend them, especially since they're so budget-friendly and come in a wide selection of colors. The ones I'm wearing happen to hit three trends in shoes right now--nude, suede, and wedge espadrille. I'm a huge advocate of nude shoes in since they can go with so many things in your wardrobe.
