This is such a hot trend right now and its so fresh for S/S’13. I can’t wait to mix it up like we see here on the runways.

I’ve been wanting to feature these Pierre Balmain jeans ever since I bought them on super sale at Nordies (as seen on my instagram feed  here). They were the only ones left in size 23 … so I basically knew it was meant to be. The wash and the detail work on these jeans is amazing in person so I really wanted to play off of those elements when styling this look. I kept everything clean and simple but added a bit of edge with the accessories. Moving into fall, consider this a preview to my winter wardrobe.

WedgeSneakerEdit

 

Love these fashionable wedge sneakers!! Leave it up to Isabel Marant to make velcro straps and oversized sneaker tongues cool. With form and function in tow, these modified runners are the perfect ‘about town’ shoes. If you are still hesitant about embracing the wedge check out how these lovely ladies (below) styled their sneaks.

 

ClearEdit

It’s clear that these fantastically transparent accessories are catching on. I especially love the 3.1 Phillip Lim Clear Pashli Satchels in black and white. Their design is so sleek and modern and would make for the best summer tote.
