Spring Shoe Guide: Mules


Every season there is always one shoe trend that I am just not quite sure about at first. Enter the mule for Spring/Summer 2014. I’ve long associated this style with my 60+ friends and was quite surprised when I started to notice some of Hollywood’s “it girls” rocking these backless slip-ons. But the mule has been reinvented by designers, featuring modern updates like architectural structure, youthful heels and sexy cutouts. These styles aren’t just for grandma and if you wanna be on the cutting edge of the fashion world, I’d add a pair to your footwear collection right away.

No. 1) Dolce Vita Odea, $169; No. 2) Vince Camuto Jaso mule, $110; No. 3) Topshop Waltz perforated leather open toe mule, $85; No. 4) Pour la Victoire Eva mule, $250; No. 5) Gianvito Rossi python and leather mules, $1,050; No. 6) Tibi Bee Heel, $375; No. 7) Vince Kasia mules, $395; No. 8) Joie Ashland wedge, $325; No. 9) ALDO Acaren, $100; No. 10) Jeffrey Campbell Druid open toe mule, $155; No. 11) Fréda Salvador Shine, $425; No. 12) Club Monaco peep-toe mule, $289; No. 13) Topshop heeled mule, $140.

Spring Shoe Guide: Caged Heels


Every woman needs a good, trendy high heel for the season. Conservative pumps and comfort-friendly wedges don’t cut it when it comes to cocktail parties, weddings and girls nights. This spring, a caged heel is our must-have for these fun nights out. They’re super sexy and stylish – the ideal statement shoe. What’s even better is that a caged heel doesn’t have to always be paired with a skirt or a dress. They sexy up a pair of boyfriend jeans or a jumpsuit like you wouldn’t believe!

Spring Shoe Guide: Espadrilles


Today, I am launching part one of our Spring Shoe Guide, starting with the espadrille flat. All espadrilles share their defining jute rope sole, but this season we’re seeing a lot more than the traditional canvas uppers. Leather, lace, calf-hair, studs, and perforations are just some of the ways designers are giving these comfortable slip-ons some extra oomph. Easily paired with denim cutoffs, a sundress, or a cropped pant and v-neck tee, these shoes will be sure to become your everyday casual shoe.

Easter Tablescape


// Easter Tablescape by Modern Eve | Photography by http://christinachildress.com

Styling tabletops and entertaining in my home has always been a passion of mine and something I want to include more of in my life. I love an excuse to gather friends and family in a beautiful setting, around a table of delicious food, for the purpose of laughter, storytelling and mutual encouragement. It’s amazing how intentionally placing a simple floral arrangement, beautiful dinnerware and layers of table linens can evoke just the right atmosphere and mood.

Sunday we’re hosting our annual family Easter brunch and I wanted to put together an earnest table that’s inviting and peaceful.  A couple weeks ago, I has the pleasure of working with local Dallas photographer, Christina Childress, to bring my vision to life. And I’m excited to be working with Christina over the next year to share some other tablescape inspirations with you.
