Elevated weekend wear


I chose to describe this outfit as elevated for two reasons: 1) because it's a bit dressier than typical weekend outfits and 2) because I'm wearing wedged sandals. (Get it? Ha!)

A few weeks ago, Earth Brands contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in styling a pair of shoes from their S/S '15 collection in an outfit post. After browsing the catalog, I found a few styles I thought meshed well with my personal style, and I couldn't wait to say yes! (I mean, how could I say no to a free pair of shoes?!) The brand seemed familiar to me even though I had never owned a pair of shoes by them before, and it's because both my mom and my step mom own pairs and love them. You know what, though? They've really been knocking their recent seasonal collections out of the park, and I find their styles to be fashion-forward for ladies of any age. The best part is that they are comfortable--like, truly.

My favorite collection of shoes is the Earthies collection. First introduced in 2011, Earthies focuses on fashion and comfort and features an "exclusive contoured comfort footbed" which repositions the body to a more natural position over the feet. I took my Morolo sandals out for a long walk on the first wear--to and from the grocery store almost a mile round trip--and can definitely vouch for the comfort, even with the moderate heel! I decided on the "biscuit" colorway knowing that it would make the perfect neutral for any spring/summer outfit, though the Morolo is also available in black, bright red, and denim blue. (The red and blue colorways seem to be sold out from the main website but can be found at Nordstrom.) I found the style to be true to size with a zipper down the back and some elastic in the sides to make it easy to get the sandals on and off. I have average-to-wide feet and did not feel any discomfort width-wise.

Suffice to say, you will be seeing more of these beauties this spring and summer! :)
