Make A Fashionable Statement

MAKE A FASHIONABLE STATEMENT

If there is anything that I have learned from the world of Fashion, then it is, that it is all about making a statement, we create, design, decorate and dress, too express who and what we are. And what I love is that, we can bring that statement into our living spaces. Because just as we dress to express who and what we are, so we decorate our homes to reflect our personal style.

Espadrilles and cool sunglasses are the epitome of summer so pairing the two together just make sense. The espadrilles will give you that casual and relaxed vibe while the color popping Adidas Original sunglasses will give you that cool street vibe look. Pick your pair for a rocking summer!!!
Espadrilles and Adidas Color frames

Color Pop Frames from Adidas Original

What is better than a pair of denim shorts and a pair of espadrilles. With so many different styles and designs of denim shorts you can really wear a pair every day. I love the one featured from Glamorous especially the 1940’s fringe detail, giving it a touch of vintage glam, pair it with a bodysuit, black espadrilles and your purple color popping Adidas Original sunglasses for a sexy street glam look.

Adidas origanal and espadrilles

Color Pop Adidas orginal

The mini skirt, BOOM, show off your legs!! Keep it playful with a character cropped t-shirt, patched denim mini skirt and lace up espadrilles, paired with the purple tinted sunglasses for a subtle hint of sexy cool.

Classis chic, striped t-shirt and white mini, for a relaxed monochrome look paired with Blue sunnies for a hint of color.

Espadrilles and a mini dress, a girly combo, playful and flirty. I picked the white laser cut-out, off the shoulder dress because the white will show off your glowing tan and the wedge espadrille will give you the extra height, showing off your legs. The color framed sunglasses from the Color Pop Adidas Original collection will just make it all pop.
