With just over two weeks until all three kids are done with school, summer will be officially underway for us. Our 4th of July plans are almost sorted and if all goes as planned, we will be on the beach, watching the fireworks. We’ve desperately been searching for a second home, but since it hasn’t happened yet, we will likely be renting for the holiday weekend again this year. Since I was a teenager, I always loved escaping the city for the warm weather holidays, and I would love nothing more than to be beachside or poolside all summer long.
Ryder, Siella, and Gemma usually don red, white, and blue for the 4th, so this year I think I’ll join them. Usually, I am so wrapped up in packing for the kids, that I just throw a bunch of things for myself into a suitcase, but I’ve decided to put a little more thought into it. The right footwear is imperative and as I’ve matured, I realized that in addition to something looking good, my tootsies need to be comfortable too. I fell in love with my Aerosoles booties from this winter, so I decided to give their summer styles a try.
Aerosole’s new Americana collection of shoes and sandals struck me while shopping with their bold primary colors, so I scooped up three pairs in red, white, and blue. How 4th appropriate!
I figured these Red Glorify Sandals will be my daytime kicks for trips to the beach. I’ve found them to be a light alternative to most espadrille styles available out there.
I think these Cyberspace Espadrille’s in cyber blue will be my evening shoe. The blue tone is super neutral, making it the perfect addition to lots of my summer wardrobe. And, with a wedge only 2¼” and Aerosole’s HEEL REST technology, there will be no changing my shoes in the middle of my day.
In keeping with their Americana theme, I went for these Chlosing Time Studded Sandals in white. The interwoven sandals have a studded motif on crisscross straps, so you can wear them for dress up or down. The memory foam footbed and a sueded sock detail on all three designs will truly keep my feet feeling great, all summer long.
So psyched to start the summer in two weeks, psyched for our mini beach vacay over July 4th, and pretty psyched to actually be packing new items for myself this year!
