Nostalgic for the '90s: JuJu Jellies

I'm my 5 year-old self again wearing black jellies with frilly white socks and high waisted shorts.  The dream of the '90s stayed alive in Portland, and I'm bringing it back to Miami.  With the onslaught of storms, our college campus is flooded, and my jellies are the perfect shoe choice for this weather.

I've even made an elaborate list to tell you why JeLLiEsRuLe4RaiN:
  1. They have a buckled strap meaning they aren't flip-flops meaning my feet won't be sliding out of my wet shoes as I speed between classes and sprint from building to building
  2. They aren't completely closed, so after stepping in a puddle, my feet will quickly dry
  3. SOCKS ARE OPTIONAL! Do you understand the magnitude of this perk?  It means NO SOGGY SOCKS!  I wasn't kidding when I said the streets are flooded here.  Stepping in puddles that are ankle high is unavoidable.  Stepping in them with boots or sneakers means damp socks for the rest of the day, and that is not a feeling I enjoy
  4. They're unique.  I don't see many people wearing them.  Wearing this boot too often gets boring.

I love that you can see the white nail polish through the shoes!

A Quick Recap of Fashion Week SS2014

As fashion week is well in our rear view mirrors, there were many reoccurring trends that I noticed from each runway show. From the dark tones and in contrast, light and airy materials to the interesting angles cuts and the simple clean lines, an apparent observation is that many of the pieces are rather ready to wear. The fashion itself might be a bit interesting but easily transformable overall and with the right pairing, any individual can rock a runway look and be the talk of town!
