Here on the STYLELOG, we’re starting a new weekly series called #SHOESDAYTUESDAY where we’re going to highlight a pair of shoes and show you how to style it for various occasions. Let’s take a walk through the wild side, first up are these super rad Michael Kors Cassie Loafers.
Summer may have started its countdown to being over, and while our hearts are crying a little, Festival Season is still in full swing!! Made in America is just around the corner here in Philadelphia, and we’re psyching ourselves up. If you don’t have a show on the horizon, get a few friends together and blaze a trail, go on an adventure! There’s still plenty of summer sun left to go on a road trip. This outfit screams of the outdoors and wandering aimlessly wherever the path may lead. The Michael Kors Cassie Loafers give that western cool vibe and the backpack is a festival and travel-friendly necessity.

“With a Rebel Yell, she cried More More More.” While Summer Fridays are reaching its end, it doesn’t mean we can’t still have fun in the office. Taking cues from IT girls Zoe Kravits and Cailin Russo rocking septum jewelry, we’re getting the feeling rebellion is in the air. Update that boring 9-5 wardrobe and reminisce about your teenage angst with some punk-inspired accessories paired with current pieces that may make you feel like you can ditch work early.
Crop tops are everyone’s favorite especially during the warm seasons. You can wear them with anything, and I mean ANYTHING. Here are some ways to wear crop tops in different styles, so get ready to update your closet with your favorites.
Pair your favorite black leather crop top with a slit high-waist maxi skirt for a sassy look. Accessorize with a pair of Michael Kors Guliana open-toe ankle straps, Tory Burch Adalyn clutch, and to protect your eyes from the sun, add a sun hat.
2) Fun & Flirty
This is the ultimate party look. Play around with all the colors of the rainbow and match the skirt with your crop top in your favorite hue. Lastly, pair the outfit with a cute crossbody (Kate Spade Cedar Street Monday shown).
3) Urban Chick
If you want the “urban” look, go with a graphic top and match it with high-waist shorts and wedge sneakers. Voila, you are already stylin’.
4) Casual Babe
Last but not least, if you like casual this is for you. A plain crop top with distressed skinny jeans, a cute bootie, and aviator sunglasses make the perfect street style.

1. An Edgy Sandal
The Stuart Weitzman Sunbelt Chunky Heel fits the bill perfectly with it’s chunky heel and buckle detail. An edgy chunky heel will add instant style points with everything from cut off shorts to a flirty mini.
White jeans can instantly step a casual look up a notch as an unexpected wardrobe choice. In a classic fit, white denim jeans add a clean and crisp look without taking yourself too seriously. Still, this look can be hard to pull off so here are 3 surefire tips to keep you ahead of the fashion curve.
1. Get Prepped
Pair crisp white jeans with a polo and casual boat style shoes for an easy preppy look that isn’t over the top. A handsome watch will finish off the look quite nicely too. Try the Adriano Goldschmied Graduate Denim Jeans in White and the Tommy Bahama New Fray Day Polo in Red Wine for this look.
2. Play Dress Up
Add a bit of panache with an eye catching sport shirt like the Balik button up shirt from Robert Graham or go for a more clean cut look with a classic solid style. Try this look with the Graduate jean from Adriano Goldschmied in a sateen white. The brushed cotton hand keeps the casual pants feeling more dressed up than usual.
3. Casual Friday
Get ready in a pinch by pairing your favorite white jeans with a slim fit v-neck t-shirt in a color with a heathered effect. The heathered tee keeps it casual while still maintaining a pulled together look. We say you can’t go wrong by pairing this look with one of Cole Haan‘s very popular Lunargrand style shoes. Try this look out with the Psycho Bunny V-Neck in Orchid and the DL1961 Russell Classic Straight Jeans in Chalk.
We all know what a staple the LBD—little black dress—is in a woman’s wardrobe. However, the term doesn’t have to be taken quite so literally—special details can make you stand out in a room yet still remain a closet basic.

5. White Hot
It is summer time, which means many trips to the beach or paradise and laying down under the hot radiant sun for a tan. Unfortunately, sometimes instead of a tan you may get sunburns due to many hours of skin exposure, causing irritation and pain. Sunburns can be unpleasant and painful and may lead to skin cancer if untreated. So here are some remedies to treat sunburns at home.
1) Aloe Vera
One of the most common way to treat a burn(s), is by applying aloe gel on it. Studies have shown that it contains healing properties by causing blood vessels to constrict and can heal up to second degree burn. For fast recovery, apply five to six times a day for one week. You can either purchase an aloe plant at your local florist or bottled gel at any drugstore.
2) Apply Cool Compress
Soak a wash cloth in cool water and apply directly onto the burnt area until the cloth gets warm. Do not use ice or ice pack. Apply the compress several times a day as needed.
3) Oatmeal Bath
Oatmeal has many health benefits such as lowering cholesterol levels, stabilizing blood sugar levels, reducing the risk of heart disease, etc. but it also cures several skin disorders. Many take oatmeal baths to treat dry or sensitive skin, poison ivy, eczema, diaper rash, and even sunburn. Take 1/3 to 3/4c of any type of oatmeal and blend them into small pieces. Before jumping into the tub, fill it with luke warm water (make sure it’s not hot) and throw the oatmeal pieces in. Feel free to add lavender, rose, or any type of oil for aromatherapy. Your skin will feel more smooth and the burnt areas will feel less painful to the touch.
4) Apply Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E oil is a natural supplement that encourages the healing process while preventing scarring. It is also good for first degree burns; supports the healing of damaged skin cells. It saturates the skin with antioxidants that combat the free radicals that cause redness and inflammation at the sun burnt layer. Apply a generous amount of oil onto the red region two-three times daily for results.
If these remedies don’t seem to work or show results, go see a doctor or a dermatologist. Other than that, don’t forget to stay hydrated and wear sunblock, ladies and gents. Enjoy your summer!
