Summer Shoes Fashion Segment

My friends at WKYC Channel 3 reached out asking me to do a Fashion Friday segment this week about summer shoes. And while I LOVE partnering with them and going TV segments, ironically, even though I write this blog weekly, I always still prefer to talk rather than type. However, there is only so much info you can pack into a 2.5-minute segment. 

And in a blog, I can go deeper with links, tips, and even different styles. For example, I posted on Instagram asking what summer shoe questions you all had. There were quite a few comments about summer shoes that don’t show toes. Bunions, no pedicure (thanks COVID), and such. Honestly, I didn’t think of that before filming. But, I’ll be sure to address it here.

BTW, the spot should air Friday, July 17, 2020. Tune in if you can. I always try to share it on Facebook and Instagram as well, so make sure to follow me there too.

What’s Old is New Again

The cool thing about the “in” shoes of summer 2020 is that they’re totally practical.  AND in many cases, you might already have them or something similar in your closet.

A Travel Shoe or Two. Three at Most

We’ve been packing for our clients a lot. Like, a lot, a lot. Maybe you’ve even seen it on Hallie’s Insta stories. And, regardless of the final destination, the common theme has been the dire need of travel shoes. And the desire NOT to over pack in the shoe department. Most people think they need waaaay more shoes than they do to go on a trip. This is the deal, shoes take up A LOT of room in your suitcase (and your weight restrictions). USE THAT SPACE WISELY!

We’ve helped pack for Cali, Arizona, Florida, Italy, France, Portugal, Ireland, Vietnam, Israel, you name the destination, and we’ve probably assisted in packing for it.  And, it hasn’t seemed to matter what the weather is at the final destination, hot, cold, humid, or wet, all of these traveling gals have had the same conundrum, what shoes to pack and how many are really needed? And we figured, hey, if this has been the common theme, then why not put it out there for you, too. 

Travel Shoe Tips from the Pros: 

Build your outfit based on your travel shoes.

Literally, this has been life changing for many of our clients (men and women alike) START FROM THE GROUND UP. Start with your shoes and build the outfits from there. The shoe makes the outfit so when it comes to travel let the shoe start out the outfit. It really helps to cut down on the amount of shoes you need to schlep with you. If you have one or two good travel shoes that you can wear around all day or night that’s all you need. Don’t over pack in the shoe department. Give it a try, and save the space for shoe shopping on your trip.
