On the Hunt for Boat Shoes


My dear friend Gwen sports the cutest pair of leather boat shoes- they look casual but with a bit of preppy polish. She's inspired me to do some serious shoe hunting when I hit the mainland in a few weeks. (There's something to be said for trying things on in person, isn't there?) Here are a few ideas for summer footwear- all classics with a fun, beachy twist. And the photo above is pinned to my summertime inspiration board as a helpful reminder.



What could be beachier than faded nautical stripes?

I like the variety of textures on this pair.


Of course, The Fab Miss B is like a raccoon- she loves anything that glitters...



Classic Keds get a cool update with linen.

Love the unexpected jolt of color and shine on this pair.



But this pair is the one that really makes my heart go pitter pat. I have a sneaky feeling I'd wear them with everything. Which pair is your favorite?

love them all but I am all about supporting a good cause. If am gonna spend the money I wanna at least know that a child in a third world country is getting a pair of shoes as well:) I vote for TOMS w/ stripes!

I poke fun at my boyfriend for wearing/owning boat shoes. However, your post of these beauties will make me change my tune (and add 'em to my own wishlist!).
