Love Want Need // Espadrilles & Totes

gm_Espadrilles&Totes

Happy Monday, all! Hope you all had pleasant weekends! This past Saturday was my birthday, so Christa and her boyfriend came to pay me a visit in Boston. The weather turned out to be much nicer than we anticipated, so we got to go on some nice long walks. It got me thinking about how day-trip season is upon us — pleasant afternoons filled with slow strolls in destination towns, checking out local shops and markets. Days like those call for lightweight comfy shoes and easy carry-all totes for your finds along the way, with canvas being the perfect material for both! Check out some of our finds:

Tri-Coastal Watermelon Tote

Want

Patio Envy

Since we both grew up with lush backyards and now live in cities, we are always on the lookout for great outdoor space. Unfortunately neither of us has any yet, but that’s ok – we can invite ourselves over to peoples houses (porches/patios/yards) whenever possible and browse pinterest until we cool down in the AC. Someday though…someday…

If you’re reading this and you have a lovely outdoor space to retreat to – we are extremely jealous (use these pics as decorating inspiration), and if you are in the same boat as us, check these out and pretend you’re there!

Sick Kicks

Temps are still in the teens here in New England, but if things ever warm up a bit, I’d love to take a break from my snow boots and throw on some sneakers for a casual-cool look. I don’t think I could ever be as brave as these chicks and not wear socks, but I’d definitely throw on a patterned pair of cotton ones to make it winter appropriate. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 10 11 1319549453e50579e710c6f19350eacdff

Since Christa’s going to Italy in a few months, she mentioned that she’ll be stealing some of these looks so that she can be cute and comfortable while walking around. Here are some inexpensive styles she can choose from:
