After what seems like an eternity of winter, it’s finally time to shed a few layers, put on some shades and show off our pedicures. Spring is officially in full swing (and summer just around the corner!) Because it’s pretty cold a majority of the year in Chicago, once the weather gets decent you can’t help but want to be outside as much as possible (like I don’t feel productive unless I am outside if it’s 60+ and sunny…even though, let’s be honest…I’m not being productive at all). And as much as we’d all love to just sit on a rooftop or patio all day, it’s not realistic for everyone. So what to do to enjoy the outdoor time? Walk everywhere!
But easier said than done, right? Because we get such little time to wear sundresses and sandals, we really have to embrace it. But flat sandals are one of the least comfortable things to walk in. There’s no support, they’re super flimsy and tend to give you blisters almost immediately. But not these babies! I could easily walk a mile in these (if not more) and considering I’m on the move almost constantly on gorgeous days like these, I need something comfortable (but also stylish…never compromise on style!) And these really get the job done.
Besides a new pair of sandals, another way to step up your spring / summer wardrobe is with a fresh pair of sunglasses. As much as I’m a shoe girl, I’ve always been an eyewear addict. There’s something about a cool pair of sunnies that just makes you feel like you can take on the world (or at least the day ahead!)
And between my new footwear that will literally take me everywhere this summer and these sweet shades that literally go with everything, Timberland has me set for the season!
