KCL Friday Finds

I'm pretty excited about this week's finds...as always. I keep wondering if I'm ever going to run out of great small businesses to feature, but I'm beginning to think that won't be a problem. Each week brings new shops and the most amazing new finds. And now that Valentine's Day has come and gone, I am all about Spring! I know, it's still cold here and there, but we can enjoy the remaining cold days by looking forward to fresh flowers and all-things-Spring. Today's finds is entirely about home decor...not something I planned intentionally this time. It just wound up that way, and I couldn't be happier. These shops have all you need to give your home a cheery refresh. Enjoy!


This first one is one of the top home decor trends for 2018. With macrame and fiber art exploding in the world of home decor last year, I'm happy to see it continuing into 2018. The beautiful pieces at Spinning Weaves are woven and include the most beautiful colors and patte…

How to Wear Knee-High Lace-Up Gladiator Sandals


The knee-high gladiator sandal, particularly the lace-up gladiator, is bigger than ever this summer, though styling this trend is still elusive to the average gal. If you're a newbie to the trend, stick with one of these silhouettes, and you can't go wrong. 


1. SHORT T-SHIRT DRESS

This is one of my favorite ways to style the trend. It shows off the legs and really highlights the sandals. This is a really cute summer date look. It's sexy and polished but still casual enough for daytime. Play it safe with a solid-colored dress or pair silver lace-up sandals with a geo-print dress. If you have brown gladiators, pair them with a crisp white button-down shirt dress.


2. FLARED MIDI SKIRT

It's important too pair tall gladiators with a skirt the is knee length or shorter in most cases, but this flared midi skirt hit just below the knee. The thin straps on these particular lace-up gladiators keep the outfit from looking too bottom-heavy. Paired with a sexy crop top, it's perfect for summer. It's a cool look for a summer cocktail party.


3. SHORT SHIFT DRESS

This is the same concept as the body-con T-shirt dress pictured above but in a more relaxed way. It's the perfect look for a weekend girls trip.


4. SHORT SHORTS

Whether you go with dressy shorts, cut-off denim, or a summer romper; short shorts look great with knee-high gladiators. The lace-up sandals like the ones featured in this post look best with a slightly dressy pair of shorts. Pair denim shorts with the classic knee-high gladiators or some cool fringed gladiators.


5. OPEN-FRONT MAXI

While you may not want to pair lace-up gladiators with a long maxi skirt, this is an exception to the rule. A hi-low or front-slit maxi is the perfect way to wear this trend on vacation.

  4. Thanks for the ideas! I am short, I like to appear tall and I feel senuous in a heel. I wish to find a Knee-high Gladiator sandal with 2.5" to 3 inch heel. Most are flat or 4" high. Do you have any suggestions??
