Versatile Shoes for the Jet-setting Fashionista

by Kirsten on August 22, 2012

When I’m traveling, choosing which shoes I bring along is always tricky business due to the limited suitcase space. In fact, I happen to have an international trip right around the corner and finding the right shoes for my various activities is no small feat! It’s extremely important to pack shoes that will function well in a variety of scenarios, so I’ve compiled a list of options that are great for the gal who wants to be prepared, stylish, and make the most of her limited luggage space. If you’re planning to spend your time hiking, dining, and/or dancing, we’ve got you covered!

Jessica Simpson

These shoes have received rave reviews based on style, comfort, and fit. With a global brand now worth $1 billion, Jessica Simpson has developed comfortable walking and dress shoes for each occasion. Among the most notable are the flats, each named for a woman that exudes type of style. Jessica Simpson’s famous Calie, Camille, and Adalia flats complement a variety of outfits and vacation environments. Jessica Simpson’s designs combine her experiences in Texas, Los Angeles, and around the world for great travel shoes.

Jessica Simpson Emmly Flats

Bandolino

Stylish Bandolino shoes set the standard for well-made sandals. Most items are hand-made rather than machine-built, so one can choose from among a variety of personalized footwear. Styles such as the Xarby, Aquaria, and Happy Me are among the most popular choices.

Anne Klein

With a wide selection of slip-on shoes, Anne Klein is a popular brand for travel. Known for upscale style at affordable prices, the brand has something for everyone. Most of the shoes are flats, so any globetrotter can have both suitcase space and comfortable, stylish shoes.

Sperry Top-Siders

A well-recognized brand, Sperry Topsiders has been developing outdoor shoes since 1935. The shoemaker is a popular choice for casual wear, sports gear, and activities shoes such as hiking, boating, and athletics. For those in need of active wear, Sperry Topsiders fit the bill.

Sperry Top-Sider Cameron Sneakers

Steve Madden

Inspired by New York and London fashion, Steve Madden footwear is a great travel choice for fashion-forward individuals. Style-conscious women can choose from among affordable shoes, sandals, and flats. Steve Madden is a great choice for trendy women who wish to look their best no matter the travel destination.

Steve Madden Women's Shoes Olympiaa Sneakers

Nine West

Nile West offers some of the most intricate and fashionable travel shoes around. Great for style-conscious women, these shoes are designed to customize a variety of outfits, from bohemian to working professional. For those looking for a more personalized approach to their travel style, Nine West offers a great fit.

Nike

With its name recognition and reputation for quality, Nike is one of the top choices for athletic wear in the world. Travelers can choose anything from high impact running shoes to slip-on athletic shoes to accommodate suitcase space and activity demands. Nike is one of my all-time favorite brands and I’ll be bringing a pair with me on my trip – they are just amazing!

Easy Spirit

As a specialty shoe shop, Easy Spirit offers a prime selection of narrow and wide width shoes, plus size shoes, and sandals. Choose from a large offering of personalized shoes for every travel experience.

What are you favorite brands for travel? I find it increasingly difficult to find stylish shoes that are both comfortable for many hours of walking and fashionable. The above choices should give you quite a range to choose from, but I would love to hear about your advice and great finds!

Wow. Time sure does fly, doesnt’ it?!

by Kirsten on August 4, 2011

Don't forget to stop and take a breather....

I know, I know. I am totally fired. It has been over a month – heck, almost a month and a half – from my last post. Life has been crazy busy for me – between work, personal stuff, more work, more personal stuff. I wish I had some fun stories to tell you about all the fabulous traveling I have done, or the amazing clothes I have been buying (well, I did find some *AMAZING* finds at TJ Maxx and Marshalls lately), but the reality is that my summer has consisted of a big move into a new home, work, and not a lot of play.

I definitely plan to fix this situation, and get a better balance going on, but it is what it is, and I see lots of amazing change on the horizon. More about that later!

I promise to do a better job of updating the site, and apologize for the lack of quality posts lately. And as an FYI – that stupid budget that was passed in CA on July 1, limiting affiliate earnings for taxing online e-tailers (blah, blah, blah), NOT a fan. So, I am working out that whole thing as well. (Want to know more, Google it and you’ll see my frustration as a blogger).

Thanks for your patience. You are all amazing readers, and I value each and every one of you!

xoxo, K.

Swoon. One of my most favorite denim brands is on sale today. Is there such a thing as owning too many pairs of jeans?

Daily Sample Sale Roundup – June 29, 2011

Summer Denim Sale @ Gilt

It can be tempting to shelve your favorite jeans once the warm weather hits, but there are plenty of summer occasions for which denim is the perfect fit. Going sailing? Snag a new pair of boyfriend jeans. Headed to a concert? Rock some cutoffs with your favorite peasant blouse. Planning to spend the next two months baking in a bikini? No matter—there’s no better time to start stocking up for the fall.

Also worth checking out is one of my favorite soft tees and knits of all time – Fluxus (also @ Gilt).

When this popped into my inbox, I knew I had to share it with all of you. Many of us love to take advantage of a quick weekend holiday or vacation, and this is a perfect time to look at some packing and clothing recommendations!

Here are Shopbop’s suggestions (and I know I am not the only one that is a huge fan of theirs)!

Just looking at this list makes me realize I need to pick up a few summer essentials. Some new day dresses, printed shorts, and more sandals!

How about you? What new items do you need in your summer vacation wardrobe? Tell us in the comments below!

The California girl in me just loves Jen Aniston. Her casual style embodies exactly what we think of when we hear the term “California Girl”. Nothing over the top, simple patterns and designs, casual and chic. When I saw the latest photo of her wandering the streets of NYC, I couldn’t help but adore her outfit. Love it.

Want to get Jennifer Aniston’s style? Get her look here (and get her look for less!):

Item: Michael Kors White Linen Crepe Gauze Sarong Skirt (no longer available, originally $1,275!)
Where to Buy: Free People Cascade Convertible Skirt or FISICO-CRISTINA FERRARI Sarong in White
