Island Fever!

Last weekend our fam took a breathtaking trip to Catalina Island via one quick boatride over the cold, blue water. It was amazing--truly like a whole other world over there! What the heck is it about landing on an island that makes us relax so much and feel so far away from it all!? Not sure why that Gilligan's Island crew wanted to escape so badly--I know I could take a good long time on an island with some of my favorite people, just sippin' drinks and soaking up the sun! Well, all of this island-water-vaca talk had me coming back to the mainland, wishing for nautical-themed summer gear. Check out these pretty preppy picks and lemme know if you're ridin' the same wave as I am...

For starters, I'm diggin' these gorgeous gold & woven Charles by Charles David 'Braid' wedges! A great 5" platform wedge with sweet double studded details all over, and ooooo that brown hue goes with literally anything in your summer wardrobe.
Well, ya can't run from the islander law too fast in these super high Wanted 'Outlaw' wedges (but that's ok, 'cause you'll be right on-trend!). What a cute, nude peep-toe sandal with dainty ruching and jute cord detail to boot!
And let me just tell ya that either of these seafaring shoe selections would go 100% perfect with this fun Eighty Six Stripe Chain Tank that I managed to run across on Piperlime.com. Such a great boat day tank, with a preppy chain detail around the seams. Yum! And if you wanna take just one day off of wearin' heels this summer (I don't know why you would, but just in case!), check out these uhhh-may-zing Sperry Topsider boat shoes. So boat-chic & preppy in the grey patent!

Well, hope your little shipwrecked heart pitter-pattered just as much as mine did at the sight of these beauties! Land 'ho!

  1. Very, very pretty! The first ones are my fave. I'm loving this whole "giant sandal" fad that's going on right now. Yeah, I might break an ankle or two, but totally worth it. Thanks for sharing these great looks :)
