If you are on a hunt for the ‘it’ summer shoes, look no further than Everlane. Remember I did an Everlane Brand Focus and review their high rise skinny? Read it here. I also styled their line notch shirt, see it here. Everlane has also been releasing lots of cute colorful summer clothing items which I’m so tempted to buy, such as this shirtdress in Oxford Blue or one of their Japanese GoWeave dresses like this wrap dress number. I have also had my eyes on their pointy leather boots since last winter, but they are always sold out in my size or in back order. Now that they were back in stock, and here came summer, so I wanted to try something a bit more appropriate. And I’m sure you’ve seen me wearing them all the time on my Instagram by now.
These Modern Loafer Mules are retailed for $155 and are the backless take on Everlane best selling loafers, called The Modern Loafer. I decided to opt for the ease of the slip-on feature and the white color for the summer.
Sizing: As suggested on the website, I went for half a size larger than my normal size (7-7.5 U.S.). These are size 8, and they fit perfectly with a little bit of room to breathe. For backless mules and open sandals, you always want to make sure that your toes and heels don’t peek out from the soles. That’s not a very good look!
Materials: These are made from 100% Italian leather in Brescia, Italy. These and have been treated with leather protectant spray and have a patent smooth leather surface with good enough padded insoles.
The Design & Look: I really want to give the design team or whoever design these mules a shout out because these come with the sturdy soles that extend to the pointy tips of the shoes. This protects the leather from being scratched or torn apart. Trust me, I’ not a very careful person when it comes to footwear and care, but these have definitely survived so many occasions involving the gravel street and my not-so-careful feet while walking.
HOW I STYLE THESE MULES, 3 WAYS:
LOOK 1: FRESH WHITE
I’ve paired these Everlane mules with a simple white mini dress. I love its square neckline, the thick shoulder straps, and its simple bodycon fit. It’s actually a denim material which is sturdy and not clingy to the body. The trick to style denim is simple, make sure it fits. I love the snap buttons that run across the front of the dress and are super easy to snap on and off. Here I added an off-white colored tote with some blue and red stripes which dressed down the look a bit and made it casual for the daytime. For summer nights, you can totally rock this same outfit switching the tote out for a small backpack or a clutch. I wore this outfit out for brunch and shopping in downtown Portland the last time I visited and felt super comfortable and street in it. Street as in urban, minimal, practical, casual yet comfortable. Not sure what this park was called but it’s such a big and open area right outside of the Nordstrom downtown Portland that filled with so much light. The energy was incredible!

LOOK 2: EARTHY URBAN
I’m an urban girl at heart. This outfit was my best attempt at dressing in colors when I happened to have pieces with colors that complimented each other so well. The tube top is from the Out From Under label sold at Urban Outfitters, and I think it’s their underwear and workout clothing range that goes on sale pretty often. This tube top, in particular, is very soft and is made from a thick enough fabric that is stretchy and form-fitting in a comfortable way. The army green pants are a line from Uniqlo that I bought a couple of months ago for $30. Uniqlo has great linen shirt, pants, and shorts that are very affordable, so you should check it out!
LOOK 3: THE JUMPSUIT
I love the look of jumpsuits on everyone no matter the seasons, day time or night. This one particularly is so dressed out and casual as it’s made from cotton, so appropriate for the summer time. I love the square neckline and the adjustable tiny shoulder straps that wrap around the back. I paired them with a simple white tank top from Brandy Melville for coverage of course. A tube top or a band tee are other alternatives that I would instantly gravitate towards as well. Ask me where to get cute and soft tank tops and tees for the summer, I’d 100% recommend Brandy Melville. They do seem to offer clothes for teenagers which I obviously am not one anymore, but I like it since their stuff is cute and affordable. I stop by the store at the U Village pretty much every other week to check out their new ins, and this white tank top was what I picked up recently.
