I’ve said in one of my outfit posts that I am not really a fan of white, until I braved wearing one on a scorching summer day. This got me thinking of a style that I’ve been wanting to try but I’m not really sure if I can pull it off- an all-white ensemble. This obsession in finding wardrobe key pieces in white is an ongoing thing. I’ve been dreaming of having a beautiful pair of white or ecru shoes. I honestly couldn’t find one that I truly like, until I saw this from Dumond’s Facebook page.
This pretty thing is such a stunner don’t you agree? Its got a nice 4-inch heel and a peep toe secured with an ankle strap, accentuated with beautiful rose gold cuff. Sigh! I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. Mentally styling it along with the clothes in my closet, while imagining wearing it to my social engagements (naks, aka ganaps as a blogger and mom hihi) or pwede din while I’m doing my chores at home. (Di ba nga I wear my heels when I do the laundry because I wanna feel pretty & I actually do feel empowered). Aminin nyo, you girls fell in love with this shoe too?! I’m sure the inner Carrie Bradshaw in all of us would whisper (get it! buy it! go for it!)
Here’s the look that I made which I captioned “branco verão” which means white summer (oh I hope I got the definition right!) in Portuguese, the official language of Brazil. Why was I inspired to name my look using the language of Brazilians? First off, Dumond is a Brazilian brand that offers premium quality shoes, bags and accessories, given the Dumond shoe that I’m lusting after is the reason why I’m writing this post- as it fuelled yet again my constant search for the perfect white shoes. Second, I’ve always dreamed of going to Rio De Janeiro which is in Brazil. Why? Well, apart from watching Rio with my kids more than a few times lately, I’ve always been fascinated with the Brazilian way and how on trend yet relaxed their style is. This look is something I’d want to wear during summer here in Manila or someday in Brazil.
My summer stylespiration is branco verão. White summer, because I’ve never actually tried wearing an all white ensemble and this would be the prefect time to do so. A crisp white cropped top paired with distressed skinny jeans. Accessorized with a white daisy stud earrings, white bag, polished off with a steel watch and of course, the star of my look, Dumond’s dashing ecru heels! Gandara Park! How many of us women find it hard to wear white? Raise your hands and legs! But now that you’ve seen this look that I created, are you as much as I am excited to play around and explore your personal style? I know I am! Top this look off with a sharp white blazer for that polished look and you’re set to wear this from day to night.
Beauty and style, made with premium quality that exudes the Brazilian way. This is what Dumond is. As I always say, it’s better to have few key pieces that can last years and years, than a lot of fashionable items that would only serve you a few times. Quality always beats quantity. But after seeing Dumond’s summer collection, I think I want quantity too! It made me wish I have a money tree so I can buy all their shoes! In this case, I’d get quantity and quality!
I swear when I get my hands on this Dumond pair, I’ll do an all-white outfit post!
