The Jeweled Sandals

"I choose to experience life calmly and peacefully."

One of the greatest challenges of packing for any trip is the footwear. As the best way to sight see is by foot, I will inevitably be doing a significant amount of walking, but if there is one thing I can not stand, it's trading cute shoes for comfortable shoes.

Thankfully I have these darling jeweled espadrilles (I'm pretty sure I bought them because Jessica posted them, so thanks Jessica) and they strike the perfect compromise between being cute enough to pair with a dress, while still being flat and comfortable to spend a day walking in.

  1. That's exactly my conundrum Lydia!! There's no way I want ugly shoes---but travelling usually means so much walking.
    It does make me glad for the cute sneakers that I'm seeing---at least I can put my orthodics in those!

  2. WOW Lydia you look splendid !
    White is fab with your hair and skin tone.
    The dress, the shoes everything looks impeccable and I am sure I have said it before, but I love seeing a well dressed tourist, they are rare birds.

  3. The challenge you've just described is exactly why I always travel with emergency flats. Yes, the result is that my handbag is a little bit heavier. But there is nothing that puts a damper on a travel day like sore feet. I imagine it's not so bad in Miami but Paris is incredibly hard on shoes, so I am also hesitant to wear my cute my favourites for too long when we're out because they get ruined so quickly here - my go-to pair of flats may not last until the end of May! I guess what I'm saying is don't bring these jewelled sandals if and when you come to Paris, but I think they were a perfectly beautiful choice for Miami and they pair so well with that white dress!

  4. Love this look!!
    And yep, travel footwear is the worst!! I want to bring all my heels for cute outfits, but walking 10 miles in a day (like I did last weekend) is not conducive for that. Luckily cute flats & sandals can be found everywhere! If they're comfortable to walk in is the next issue, haha

  5. These are SO cute- and how perfect for a warm-weather vacay?

  6. Such a cut look! So beachy. Makes me ready for summer. I tend to pack 900 pairs of shoes and then realize nothing goes with any of them. I am a horrible packer.


  7. Those are great - you've definitely nailed the comfort/cuteness intersection!

  12. The jeweled sandals are so fun, and perfect with your little white dress! :)

    It can be so hard finding a pair of cute and comfortable flats sometimes, especially when you're on holiday, you want shoes you know that work! :)

    Hope you're having a great end to the week with a lovely weekend ahead!
