Style + Comfort: Mephisto Footwear Review

May 11, 2015

It’s such a happy time in a fashionista’s life when style and comfort combine. 

Comfortable high quality walking shoes never go out of style, but right now they’re so hot and on trend. Oh thank you, fashion gods! My feet are in heaven!

And the very best of the utility footwear brands?  Mephisto!

Started in France in 1965, Mephisto has been a pioneer in the footwear industry ever since. What makes Mephisto so special?  High quality handcrafted shoes with innovative technology makes Mephisto an investment not just in your wardrobe, but also the health of your feet, legs, and back. 

 Their flexible exclusive soft-air midsole reduces the shocks of walking, protecting your feet and joints.  The breathable nature of the midsole enhances air circulation which gives your feet a healthier environment.  Your Mephisto footwear will last you many years and you can even send them in to be refurbished.

I picked out these beautiful Helen Spark sandals in light beige nubuck.  Once you know how wonderful these shoes feel, you’ll definitely want to pick out a color that goes with everything!
Along with everyday wear, I imagine my Mephisto sandals to be the perfect travel shoe.  Totally ideal for walking and exploring, as well as looking great with jeans, pants, shorts, and even skirts.

My Siberian Husky, Rox, suggested I try them out on a dog walk.  She’s crafty like that!  
(And yes of course, they’re splendid for dog walks too!)

Think of all you’ve put your feet through … isn’t it time to do something nice for them?!

Trendy Spring/Summer Tops from Shopbop!

May 6, 2015

Fresh, cool & perfect for spring and summer fun … 
here’s my favorite Shopbop tops of the moment!

House of Harlow 1960 Pasadena Off Shoulder Top
This top looks as cool as a summer breeze and so on trend.
Penfield Badam Shirt
Could any shirt by more perfect for a picnic?  It would be cute alone, over a tank or tee, or even tied around the waist.

Free People Sheer Plaid Blouse
It’s no secret that I’m a huge Free People fan.  Loving this pretty romantic tunic.

Spiritual Gangster Palm Tree Hamsa Tank 
If you aren’t familiar with the hamsa symbol see my past post here.
It’s even more cool with a palm tree print!
Antik Batik Feista Shirt

A hippy at heart, I always love a good tie-dye, especially when it’s as pretty and upscale as this!

Camilla Silk Lace Up Blouse

This beautiful silk blouse would be a splurge, but isn’t it amazing?

Shop gorgeous Camilla prints.

What tops are you lusting after now that the weather is getting warmer?  Which of these do you like best?

Jord Watch Review

May 3, 2015
I love a design aesthetic that combines natural elements and modern style.  So when JORD asked me to review one of their wooden watches I was on cloud nine!

Jord is Swedish for earth or land, which is the perfect name for a company that uses beautiful sustainable sourced wood from around the world to handcraft their amazing timepieces. 
A team of artists, designers, and professional watchsmiths work together to create unique watches from maple, bamboo, blackwood, cherry, zebrawood, loa, and sandalwood.

I chose the exquisite Sidney series maple and rose gold watch, with Swarovski crystals, and Seiko quartz chronograph stopwatch movement.

Thanks so much to JORD for gifting me this amazing timepiece.  All opinions are my own as always. The brand was a pleasure to work with, including outstanding attention to customer service.

This watch is just one of many stunning beauties. Check out the JORD website to see all their masterpieces!  And be sure to notice their selection of handsome men’s watches as well.  (I think my husband has been hinting!)
