Turning Heads Linkup – Lemon Top, White Denim, and Andre Assous Gold Espadrilles


Hello ladies!

I’ve just been dying to wear some yellow and my new shades!

I knew it was time to take out my lemon print top! Doesn’t it remind you of Spring/Summer? I bought it last year after seeing it on another blogger.  Makes me think of a cool glass of lemonade in the summer, or kids selling at their Lemonade stands! ( they still do that!- but inflation has made a glass of lemonade -$1 :-)) I do like that I can wear this top on or off the shoulder too.

I am wearing my lemon top with my new Andre Assous Cadence Espadrilles.  I am thrilled to be collaborating with Andre Assous again. I have quite a few pairs of espadrilles in my closet, each different in their own way. I love this style in Gold and the shimmery gold detail makes them a bit fancier.

Now, wouldn’t this photoshoot have been cute near a lemonade stand, or a pool.. something summery… I do try and get “locational shoots” 1-2 days a week for the blog, but sometimes my health just enables me to walk a few feet from my door. I suppose, you gotta do, what you gotta do… My hubby has been noting and taking pics with his phone, of some great locations to take pics.., so when i can…it’s on the agenda! I hope to show you some areas around Charlotte in the near future!

I have collaborated with Andre Assous here in this post Andre Assous – The Espadrille Sandal

and  Andre Assous – The Carmela Sandal

These Cadence espadrilles are so comfortable. From the website-

Made traditionally with a jute midsole, this luxurious espadrille features a hand sewn upper with glittery embellishments, and an elastic slingback for easy on and off.

Heel approx 2.5″/Hand Sewn leather upper with embellishments/Square toe/Jute cord midsole/Goatskin padded footbed/Molded rubber outsole/Elastic back for fit/Made in Spain.

Metallics are a fun way to add some shine to a look. The “glittery gold embellishment” caught my eye and thought it fun to pair with neutral looks as well.

Andre Assous shoes are made in Spain, and his name is associated with the espadrille sandal. One thing I enjoy about blogging, is working with brands I believe in and want to share with my readers. I haven’t had to buy shoes this Spring and that is great for my budget… But, do I save it? No, it ends up going towards dresses or tops or whatever else I may fancy!

These sandals are wonderful as they are not too high , at 2.5 inches and the platform is the same height making them easy to walk in! They also come in silver and navy- all very pretty!

They have sandals, wedges, and espadrilles among other styles.

I finally received my sunglasses, “The Hamptons”  from Eyebuydirect. I wanted a smaller pair to fit my face, so I bought these and one other style you will see on the blog. I have been asked if they are “Ray Bans”, and they aren’t but I think they look similar in style. I loved this style with its warm tortoise frame and slightly rounded look.

Thanks too for your enthusiasm about my hair! I am getting it done as usual this week, just covering all of the white and grey  I have ( there is a lot!) and may get the ballyage at the end of June.. so we will see! When, if, I do get it done, I will share it here 🙂 I just think with the taste of the heat we have had here already, there may be many days of chignons and ponytails regardless!

I love how they shimmer in the sun! This is one of their most popular styles. Can you tell I got a pedicure? I chose a peach tone.

Do stop by and check out Andre Assous and the shoe selection. Lots of beautiful styles to be had,

Andre Assous gifted me these shoes. All opinions are mine and truthful.

    Love the bright lemon print! So cheerful and sunny!

    If you do balayage on your hair consider what I do to maintain it…I get a mix of shampoo and bleach at the sink every time I get my hair coloured, just on the lighter ends. This way I don’t ever have to redo the balayage (ombre) part which is a nightmare and takes hours to do. I do think the techniques for balayage and hombre differ slightly so it may not work for you but it has saved me loads of $ and time doing it this way.

      Hi Suzanne!
      Thanks for the input! My hairstylist did use foils and just tried something different just yesterday. She did tell me ballyage would take 5-6 hours – and I am not sure I can sit that long! I appreciate your input and what you do.. thanks for the info!

    Love the lemon top and the espadrilles, which has reminded me that I’m on the hunt for some. GS was desperate to make and sell lemonade last summer holidays and the pressure’s building up again this year!

    Nothing says summer better than a fruit patterned item! Your top is absolutely beautiful and with the peplum hem always a winner in my opinion. The color of your toes are pretty too. I love the color!

      Thank you Maureen! I did like the style of top and the fact that I could wear it on or off the shoulder. I wasnt sure if i picked too light a color for my pedicure, but peach is very summery to me , thank you! xx

    That top is super cute, I am loving all the lemon prints I keep seeing for summer. You wear this yellow so well Jess! It looks so crisp with your white denim. I’ll bet it is precious off the shoulder too. The green in your necklace is such a nice pop as well. Those shoes look like they are just dreamy – stylish and comfortable,the perfect sandal. I’, still drooling over your straw bag!

    I think lemons are such a stylish fruit – I think of the Mediterranean with their fruit and olive trees growing on dry hills near the sparkling sea – all very romantic and timeless xx
