Good Morning Everyone! How was your weekend and did you watch the Oscars? I have to admit that I haven’t seen a single movie that was nominated. I am dying to see several and at the top of my list is Lady Bird. Did you have a favorite dress? I loved Allison William’s dress and thought Jane Fonda looked amazing in hers (her body!!!). I did not like Salma Hayek’s dress and was shocked when I learned that Gucci designed it. Fun fact though, her dress had 4.2 million dollars worth of diamonds on it, WOW! Today I want to share these super comfortable sandals by Adrian Allen in tan. You might remember the same pair in black here. I had to have the same pair in tan after wearing the black ones because they are so stinking comfy. Honestly, I could walk miles in these sandals. The tan color and design goes with every single item in everyone’s closet and would be your go-to shoe for the spring and summer.
Gwen Allen’s (founder of Adrian Allen) story is pretty funny, and I so identify with it. She wore flip-flops to a black tie wedding reception because her feet hurt in her pointy-toed pumps after the ceremony. She made her husband go back to their hotel room to get her flip-flops. How many of us have ripped off our shoes at a wedding reception and danced in flip-flops or barefoot? I was in so much pain walking in New York one time, that I took my shoes off and walked barefoot back to my hotel (can’t believe I am admitting this)! Anyway, Gwen Allen realized she had a closet full of gorgeous shoes that she couldn’t wear so she decided to create a low heel shoe that could be worn with many different outfits. She also realized that the footwear industry was designing for very young women (who will be in our shoes one day, no pun intended!), who can stand to wear an uncomfortable shoe.
Adrian Allen may not have the largest selection of styles (which I am sure they will be adding to), but I will guarantee they will be your most comfortable shoes. The Stella that I am wearing can be worn with everything from jeans to dressier dresses. I also really like the Sara for women who work. This shoe is practical and would be perfect for a woman who has to dress in a dress or suit for work. If you are someone who lives in a walking city, I guarantee these shoes will be your best friend!
I hope you all have a great day! xx
