Happy Saturday from St. Lucia! I know I don’t typically post on Saturdays but I always get a lot of emails asking for suggestions about what to pack for different destinations and going to back to back destinations with one suitcase 😛 I thought it was the perfect time to share! It definitely varies by location but I wanted to share my packing strategy when it comes to shoes. You guys know I’m a huge sucker for shoes but they can take up a lot of precious luggage space and they are one of the easiest pieces to work into multiple looks. I’m partnering with DSW to share my 3 shoe essentials for your next getaway!
SOMETHING COMFORTABLE: Nothing beats a sneaker when it comes to travel style, but you also want a shoe that will work just as well for your final destination. I always end up underestimating how much walking I’ll do on vacay, so it’s good to have a shoe that’s both cute and comfortable just in case. I love these white espadrilles! They are perfect with jeans for and airport look and work great with cut-off shorts and pretty much anything and the jute accent adds that cool tropical feeling.
SOMETHING THAT MAKES A STATEMENT: I love lace-up sandals for any trip! You can wear them with almost anything you packed: a flowy maxi, cut-off shorts, or with just a swimsuit. They add a pop to even the most basic outfits. I’m in love with this pair. The embellishments make them even more of a statement shoe that will spice up your travel style and they are under $50. Go a half-size smaller – they run a little big. 🙂
SOMETHING FOR A NIGHT OUT: I might be tempted to pack a few ‘just in case’ heels, but I rarely dress up on beach trips so I just pack one versatile heel that can work with multiple outfits. I’m obsessed with all things blush so I was naturally drawn to this pretty velvet pair. The block heel makes it really comfortable and the low heel height is a must since you typically end up walking a lot on vacation.
Below are a few more great show options from DSW that are musts for your next getaway!
