Blogger Style NYFW SS 2018

I've been doing this post for several years now, and you guys always seem to love it more than any other fashion post, so here we go again for the most recent fashion week in New York! Some of my favorite American designers; like Michael Kors, Zac Posen, Tori Burch, and Rachel Zoe had sme amazing spring / summer 2018 collections. But I also love to see the street style, because it fits in with the current fashion season, and well, because it's so fun! Pictured above: KERRently by Courtney Kerr

This year it seemed as if everyone went to fashion week. Usually I have to look and look and look for enough outfits to fill up my post. This year, however, I had to majorly narrow down my picks. Everyone went, and everyone wore multiple outfits a day!











Tall Gladiator Sandals Under $100


If you haven't gotten used to tall gladiators yet, well, it's only a matter of time. Just like riding boots some years back, this shoe trend has been inching it's way into the mainstream market, and it's only getting hotter. Knee-high gladiator sandals are sure to become a summer fashion staple for years to come. Though you don't have to spend a ton of money on the trend. When the sandal first hit the scene a few years ago with the Stuart Weitzman studded gladiators, you had to fork over several hundred dollars to get the look. This summer plenty of mid-range designers and even budget brands are offering tall gladiators at prices under $100. You can shop the looks below.

For the best value, look for a pair that has real stitching through the material, and if you can, pay a little more for real leather that will last much longer than faux leather. Most tall gladiators have a tall zipper in the back or on the side. Try a pair on in stores so you can test the zipper out a few times. If it's a lace-up pair, you don't have to worry to much about the functionality of the zipper, but if there are no laces or buckles, you want to make sure in person that the zipper is in great condition. For fit, if you're concerned about having enough room for your calves, make sure to get a pair that does have adjustable laces or buckles. One of the biggest complaints in online reviews is the sandal being too slim in the calves.

I prefer the lace-up gladiators the most, because they tend to be lighter in appearance. Some of the wide-strap sandals with a lot of buckles just seem so heavy to me, as well as too literal. I really don't want to look like I'm on my way to a costume party. Of course that's my preference. If you prefer the wide-strap pairs, there are some affordable choices in several styles below. A lot of them are available in either brown or black. Unless you have a lot of black summer clothes, a tan or metallic pair is going to be the most versatile sandal for your summer wardrobe. I've definitely got my eyes on the metallic ones.
