I've just returned from a week-long holiday in Hawaii (the north shore of Oahu, to be exact) and dealing with post-vacation flotsam: multiple suitcases to unpack, carry-ons filled with sand and half-eaten snacks, along with stacks and stacks of mail. At least my own suitcase is unpacked (I did it last night as soon as I put the kids to bed!), and the process was relatively quick given my vacation wardrobe consisted of kaftans, shorts, dresses, and shoes. Make that shoe. Besides my running sneakers, I brought a single pair of simple thong sandals, which I literally wore non-stop during the entire trip. They're an old J.Crew pair from last year that are no longer available, but they look similar to the ones above, and proved themselves to be sand-to-city chic. In other words, they stood up to climbing craggy lava rocks and bopping around Waikiki. The only thing is that after this trip they don't have much mileage left, so now I am in the market for another pair. I've narrowed down my options to these by Michael Kors, Prada (the same shoe worn by the woman on the right), Topshop (in brown), and J.Crew. Thoughts or other ideas welcome!
P.S. Look out for vacation pics and highlights shortly!
