THE PERFECT TRAVEL SHOE

SHOES: STEVE MADDEN -- TOP: NORDSTROM (old), SIMILAR -- SHORTS: J BRAND -- BAG: LOUIS VUITTON -- BRACELETS: DY & DY

TRAVELING IS FUN, BUT BEFORE THE FUN, COMES THE PACKING. IF YOU’RE LIKE ME, THEN PACKING IS EASY UNTIL YOU GO TO PICK YOUR TRAVEL OUTFIT. THE HARDEST PART ABOUT THAT BEING, WHICH SHOES TO TRAVEL IN. RECENTLY, I HAVE FOUND THE PERFECT PAIR OF TRAVEL SHOES, AND SOON ENOUGH, I THINK YOU’LL UNDERSTAND WHY.

I LOVE A GOOD PAIR OF FASHION SNEAKERS. THEY ARE FUN TO MIX AND MATCH WITH OUTFITS, COME IN ENDLESS STYLE OPTIONS, AND THEY’RE SNEAKERS, SO YOU’RE GOING TO GET SOME COMFORT RIGHT? I RECENTLY CAME ACROSS THIS PAIR AT NORDSTROM (BRAND IS STEVE MADDEN), AND I AM OBSESSED! I’VE ALWAYS HAD GOOD EXPERIENCES WITH STEVE MADDEN SHOES, SO WHEN I SAW THESE, I IMMEDIATELY WENT FOR IT. AT NORDSTROM, THEY COME IN A BLUSH COLOR (SHOWN ABOVE) AND BLACK, AND ON STEVE MADDEN’S WEBSITE, THEY COME IN 5 COLORS (GET 10% OFF YOUR FIRST PURCHASE ON THEIR SITE WITH THEIR EMAIL SIGN-UP!). SO IT’S REALLY UP TO YOU ON WHERE TO BUY, BASED ON WHICH COLOR YOU’RE IN TO. I LOVE THE BLUSH, BECAUSE IT IS NEUTRAL, YET STILL A BIT DIFFERENT. THESE ARE ACTUALLY SLIP-ON, AS THE LACES ARE JUST FOR LOOKS. THIS ADDS SOME EXTRA COMFORT, AS WELL AS AN EASE OF NOT HAVING TO UNTIE AND RETIE YOUR SHOES WHILE IN A BUSY SECURITY LINE.

WHEN TRAVELING, THERE SEEMS TO BE A HESITATION, AT LEAST WITH ME THERE IS. IT’S ALWAYS, DO I WANT TO TRAVEL CUTE OR DO I WANT TO TRAVEL COMFY? I ALSO FEEL THAT HESITATION WHEN PUTTING ON A PAIR OF FASHION SNEAKERS. I TEND TO THINK TWICE ABOUT THE OUTFIT BECAUSE THEY ARE SNEAKERS AFTER ALL, AND MORE OFTEN THEN NOT, SNEAKERS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH ATHLETIC CLOTHING. AS THIS TREND CONTINUES TO GROW, SO DO THE OUTFIT PAIRINGS.

ABOVE, I PAIRED THEM WITH A SIMPLE PAIR OF FRAYED DENIM SHORTS, A THIN HOODED SWEATER (FOR THOSE CHILLY AIRPLANE RIDES), AND A COUPLE OF MY GO-TO BRACELETS. THIS IS AS SIMPLE AS IT GETS FOR A TRAVEL OUTFIT. THERE IS NO HASSLING WITH TONS OF ACCESSORIES, YOU’LL BE COMFY ALL DAY, AND YOU LOOK PUT TOGETHER. I LOVE PAIRING THESE SNEAKERS WITH FRAYED WHITE SKINNY JEANS, A LIGHT DENIM BUTTON DOWN, AND A CUTE HAT (SAY A FEDORA OR A BASEBALL CAP). I EVEN LOVE THEM WITH A SOLID SUMMER DRESS FOR A FUN SPIN ON A DATE NIGHT LOOK. THERE REALLY ARE SO MANY WAYS YOU CAN STYLE A GOOD PAIR OF FASHIONABLE SNEAKERS ANY DAY OR WHILE TRAVELING. WHETHER YOU’RE HOPING ON A LONG PLANE RIDE OR ENJOYING A SHORT ROAD TRIP, YOU REALLY CAN’T GO WRONG WITH ANY OF THESE LOOKS.  

I’M HEADING TO VEGAS IN A COUPLE WEEKS, AND I KNOW WHAT SHOES I’LL BE TRAVELING IN! WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SHOES FOR TRAVEL?  I’M ALWAYS OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS ON WHAT TO TRY NEXT!
