My weekend looks are often similar to my weekday looks, but certain summer Saturdays find me craving simple shorts and graphic tees. All of my shorts are Lees, and these new additions are slightly longer than most. Not quite a true Bermuda, but definitely getting close. They are just as comfy and cute as they can be and the perfect partner for my local-love printed tees. The sneaks are a new addition, too, and I just adore them. Love the sunwashed canvas and hate to admit it, but they’re far comfier than my beloved Chuck Taylors.
I wore this for a recent segment on the Fox 9 Buzz. Topic was nautical. This was about as close as I could get. My wardrobe has plenty of preppy staples but I’ve only been on boats a few times and ended up seasick at least half of those, so I’ve never been drawn to rope and anchor and boat motifs. I don’t even like the beach all that much. But I loved the way this palette worked with the rich browns of the accessories and the fun pop of mustard yellow from the bag.
I tore my feet up walking around San Francisco – even in my comfy flats! – so I’m sticking to closed-toe shoes and socks for the time being until I’m all healed up. After several similar walking-intensive trips, I’ve finally learned that ballet flats are fabulous if I’m out and about for less than four hours. Anything beyond that and my feet swell and blister no matter how supportive and well-made my flats may be. Socks – and shoes that work with socks – are essential for foot comfort on these types of trips. Live and learn. And blister.
Anyone else had similar experiences? Do you stick to shoes that can be worn with socks when traveling?
