Splurge vs Steal: Glamorous Bow Pumps

MariaOnPoint | Splurge vs Steal: Glamorous Bow Pumps

Bow pumps were meant to hype up any outfit you may have. Whether you’re wearing a formal dress, midi skirt of boyfriend jeans with a loose top, these pumps promise to make you a star! I splurge myself with the beautiful Aminah Abdul Jillil bow pumps, $21,5 last year for my birthday and let me tell you, I was very pleased with the customer service, from emails going back and forward to ensure I was getting the right size and that the adjustable magnetic snap closure was not going to be too loose on my thin ankles, to the beauty of shoes these Aminah Abdul Jillil are. You can see how I wore them here. Needless to say the shows were a little over my budget but since it was my birthday I decided to go for it. Choies red detachable bow embellishment high heeled pumps $29.90 are a very similar option if you don’t want to break the bank for some statement bow pumps. This version doesn’t have the detailed stitching the Aminah Abdul Jillil pumps have but the price sure is good. I recently go them in black and I like them!

Garden Party

This is one of my favorite pants from J.Crew. They’re easy, summerweight, with a slim and slightly crop leg to elongate your legs. I love it because I can casually wear them in the summer with flats and a cute straw hat or with heels for a fun night out. The colors are vibrant to mix well into summer and fall days. I’ve also worn them with a white t-shirt to run errands and I got it on a super sale for under $30! Summer nights gets a little cool at the beach so pairing this J.Crew garden pant in midnight floral jacquard (here are other items I like in this same pattern at a super discounted price, over 60% off) with a tibi silk cami (similar silk Carrie cami from J.Crew and Express, I have all three, and I love them all) was an easy pick. The tibi ones are shorter, the cut on the J.Crew ones is deeper and the Express ones are double sided and a bit longer but super affordable so I use them tucked in with midi and skater skirts), Forever21 sparkly loafers, J.Crew wide-brimmed straw hat, House of Harlow 1960 Chelsea sunglasses, Coach watch, Mint Julep clover earrings.

Dies ist einer meiner Lieblings-Hosen von J.Crew. Sie sind leicht, toll für Sommer Tagent, mit einer schlanken und etwas Pflanzen Bein auf die Beine verlängern. Ich liebe es, weil ich nebenbei tragen sie im Sommer mit Flats und einem niedlichen Strohhut oder mit Fersen für einen unterhaltsamen Abend. Die Farben sind lebendig, um gut in Sommer und Herbst Tage mischen. Ich habe auch tragen sie mit einem weißen T-Shirt um Besorgungen zu machen und ich habe es auf einem super Verkauf für unter $30! Sommernächte ein wenig kühl am Strand so Paarung diese J.Crew Hose und diese tibi Bluse, Forever21 prickelnde Müßiggänger, J.Crew breitkrempigen Strohhut, House of Harlow 1960 Chelsea Sonnenbrillen, Coach Uhr, Mint Julep Ohrringe.

Este es uno de mis pantalones favoritos de J.Crew. Son fáciles de usar, ligeros para el verano, respingados un poquito, lo que alarga las piernas. Me encantan porque los puedo usar casualmente en el verano con zapatos bajitos y un lindo sombrero de paja o con tacos para una noche de parranda. Los colores son vibrantes y se mezclan bien con los días de verano y otoño. También me los he puesto con una camiseta blanca para hacer recados y lo conseguí en una súper oferta a menos de $30! Las noches de verano se ponen un poco fría en la playa por lo que estos pantalones J.Crew van perfectos con esta blusa de seda tibi, mocasines brillantes Forever21, sombrero de paja J.Crew, gafasHouse of Harlow 1960 Chelsea, reloj Coach, arêtes Mint Julep.

Splurge vs Steal: Cage Sandals

MariaOnPoint | Splurge vs Steal: Cage Sandals


Get on board with these super cute cage sandals. They are perfect for summer; you can take a simple and casual outfit and spike it up with these beauties. They are also a great transition to fall. You can wear these fabulous cage sandals with skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, slacks, dresses… you get my point. I love a good deal and when I set my mind on something, shoes in this case, I’m on a mission. I’ve been coveting these Schutz sandals (5 inch heels) for a couple of weeks. I’ve been looking for sandals that are a little edgy and look great both with pants and with dresses so you can only imagine my happiness when I stumble upon these ones. Wanting to wait and not spend $200 in shoes, I took my time… and yesterday while I was window shopping, I found the Steve Madden (4.25 inch heels) version at half the price. I’ve tried both pairs and they’re both super comfortable and they look great on! I have very skinny legs so sometimes these types of shoes do not look great on me but these ones do. If you’re in the market for some amazing summer to fall cage heels, look no more! The sandals have an adjustable ankle strap Buy them now, thank me later!
