i’m so excited to be partnering with famous footwear on this post! ever since moving to the suburbs i changed up my work schedule to a true freelance lifestyle. i can’t say i’ve reached the point where i’m a “full time blogger” (YET)… but i’ve been lucky enough to be able to free up more time to dedicate to working with great brands and creating content that really inspires my audience. that being said, oftentimes creativity blossoms when you have time alone, relaxed, and inspired by nature…. so i decided to have a little ‘staycation’ last week right at the jersey shore! i took an afternoon to myself and hung out in spring lake, which is a stunning town with a beautiful, calm, never-crowded beach. read on for how famous footwear was incorporated into my day trip, and how i’ll continue to weave them into my summer 2018 wardrobe!
the blowfish play slip-on sneaker was the perfect shoe for my half-day-getaway! unlike your traditional beach day, i wasn’t laying out or catching many rays. instead, i was walking the entire beach & boardwalk, reflecting, relaxing, and getting my steps in! sometimes you just need a change of scene. with that in mind, i opted for a shoe that was good for plenty of walking – but easy to slip off at a moment’s notice. (funny story: while i got closer to the ocean, i took a break on a big rock, and the slip-on feature came in super clutch when a GIANT wave came crashing up onto shore! it traveled several feet past where the shoreline had been, and totally caught me by surprise. being able to kick these bad boys off was actually a lifesaver!) i have these in the ‘off white garden’ pattern because i’m all for mixing prints, and the floral matches many different color schemes in my summer wardrobe so i’ll wear them again and again!
whether you’re traveling far away or going on an adventure close to home, having functional footwear is super important. i’m the queen of packing light – so i love that these casual everyday shoes work in so many scenarios. it saves you from bringing more than one daytime shoe – and frees up more space in your luggage for souvenirs! famous footwear… you nailed it again!
