Late Summer Style with J Crew Sandals
- August 26, 2015

Hello mamas. Melissa here back with my last fashion post from my summer travels. This week I’m sporting a Missoni sleeveless dress I scored on sale at the outlets (bingo!) with a three year old pair of J-Crew silver sandals.
This Missoni dress moves easily from day to night: for day, you can pair with flat sandals, for night, with heels or even booties. The multi-color stripes make it fun and the colors are quirky: burnt orange, lime green, beige and silver and light pink.
Reasonably priced when you get them on sale, J Crew shoes can get you a lot of fashion bang for your buck, plus they’re good quality enough to last. Since so much of my daily life involves walking, I’m always on the lookout for comfortable walking sandals in which I can make it through the day without getting sore feet.
Our day began with a visit to Rio’s historical museum in which we learned about the history of the Portuguese colonization of Rio, and what’s happened since.
Walking along the coast, we gazed at Sugarloaf Mountain, one of Rio’s best known sites.
For earrings, I dug up a pair of deep green danglers from my 20’s. Something old and something new, right?
Looking at this photo, I miss the vast skies, long beaches, and deep blue waters of Rio.
My dress is hung back in my closet and will surely make an appearance this fall as I plan to convert the summer style you see here into one for fall by pairing the dress with a beige leather jacket for the first chills of fall, and switching from silver sandals to puddy-colored ballet slippers. Check back in soon for that look.
Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to check back in later in the week for more fun stuff on the site.
