Today I’m stepping out in style with a pair of my favorite slingbacks (perfect for those with narrow feet and a love for stilettos!) and denim culottes…

So glad you are stopping by, and I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July, dolls! If you follow me on Snapachat you probably already know that I spent it with my family at Glenview. It was wonderful, as always! I just love being with my family, and Independence Day is by far my favorite holiday! I couldn’t be more proud to call the U.S. my home! But let’s talk fashion…

Slingbacks are major this season and I totally understand why: They are beyond comfortable to walk in! I should’ve listened to my grandma a long time ago since the “grandma heel”, aka the low-heeled slingback is making its way into each and everyone’s closet due to the fact that they were made for a walking, and are quite the fashion statement as well. I’ll be sure to bring my CHANEL inspired slingbacks with me to California this week. I cannot believe that I’m leaving tomorrow…Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (@WhatWouldVWear) as I will post lots of content on my social media. I’ll be in Los Angeles first followed by a road trip (Highway 1) to San Francisco! It’ll be so fun — I seriously cannot wait!

As always, thanks so much for dropping by & have a fabulous Wednesday!

Much love.

    Ahh yes, the grandma heel. Someone once told me about the joys of them too and I’ve always remembered and loved them since. Even when cigarette style stilettos were all the rage hehehe. Enjoy your time on the west coast! Can’t wait to see more of it through you now!

    Love the shoes and also the purse, they’re really pretty!
    It can be pretty chilly in San Francisco even in the summer, I was there for the 4th of July weekend and I had to buy an extra jacket! So bring layers!


  28. July 7, 2016 / 8:20 PM

    Wow, this top look so great on you and I really love how you styled this whole look! It’s so perfect for Summer. Keep up the great work, mahal!

    I just thought I commented already on that look, but I suppose it was on instagram: I LOVE this top, it’s so unique, summer ready and so casual, but yet feminine and cute 🙂 the stripes look so cool, too <3 especially the combination with the denim looks just perfect, you know how to pull of denim 😀 such an inspiring look my lovely friend <3
    By the way, the bracelets arrived and I can't thank you enough, they are soooo beautiful and I'm already thinking of taking them to my vacation to croatia next week (we will be on a wedding there, and I suppose they would look amazing there :D)
    Hope you have an amazing day so far and enjoy your travels my lovely friend <3
