A Summer Uniform

    As a style blogger who likes to express herself through what she wears, I am not a huge fan of wearing any sort of "uniform".  The word itself means "the same throughout", and where is the fun and creativity in that?!  That said, if I were made to wear one thing, and one thing only, for the entire summer, I definitely would not hesitate to choose to wear a comfortable white sundress with a colorful pair of shoes, and this outfit totally fits the bill.  So here you have it: the summer uniform!
 Outfit Details: Shoes - Inkkas, Handmade in South America // Dress & Jacket - thrifted // 
Map Purse- Vintage, thrifted //  Necklace - gift from Salvaged Strawberry

   I finally got the pair of Inkkas shoes I have been lusting over for months, and you can bet they will be a regular part of my summer ensembles.  With the bright mango color and the intricate tribal print, I pretty much cannot be in a bad mood while wearing them, which I think these pictures are proof of!  If you remember when I first posted about the company here, they are both environmentally and socially conscious, so I tried to keep the rest of my outfit "green" as well with a thrifted dress, jacket and purse.  I chose the vintage map purse as a nod to the shoes being handmade in Peru and the spirit of travel and adventure.  The necklace was a gift from the lovely Amanda over at Salvaged Strawberry!
     Anyway, there are some big and exciting things looming on the horizon for me, and I cannot wait to share more with you guys soon.  Let's just say if you have any extra luck floating around, I would appreciate if you would send it in my direction! Have a wonderful start to your week!

  11. I love that you're wearing those shoes! I remember you posting about them. Sport 'em proudly, my dear friend. :D

    This is such a cute summer uniform, and far from a bland old uniform you'd have to wear day in and day out. That dress looks so light and flippy and fun to wear all day (unlike some of those uncomfy dresses that have material that isn't dreamy to wear for long periods of time at all.)

    I'll send some luck my way in the form of internet sprinkles. *throws them at you through the interwebs*

  17. These shoes are so fun, and I love that they are handmade! I recently went to Costa Rica and tried to only purchase items that were locally made--not produced in a factory. Each time I travel to a new place I try to be as conscious as possible of ethical production of goods! Also loving the embroidery at the bottom of your pretty dress!
