Golden Hour at the Marina with Sperry

IMG_0318 (1).jpg

One of my fave places to hang during golden hour is Fisherman's Village in Marina Del Rey. Eddie and I like to walk along the waterfront and check out all the boats, pelicans, and seals (!!), then we grab happy hour food and drinks right on the water. The view as the sun begins to set is so gorge! While I was getting ready for our most recent viz, I thought this would be the perf place to wear my brand spankin new Sperry shoes.

I've been buying Sperry boat shoes for Eddie for years. Birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas - he's accumulated a nice collection! I've always loved how they look but for whatever reason never bought a pair for myself, oddly enough. However when I saw these pretty blush penny loafers, I knew I had to have them.

Sperry's new 'Prep For All' theme really resonates with me. While you would probably label my style as boho, I don't like being pigeonholed into just one type of look. Some days I wake up feeling a little rock n' roll, other days I'm feelin the tomboy vibe, and then some days I'm feelin fancy af. It all depends on my mood!

I love how Sperry is redefining the word 'prep'. They're breaking boundaries and letting everyone know, hey, just because you don't categorize yourself as traditional prep, doesn't mean you should limit yourself style wise. It's a great reminder that you don't need to look or act a certain way to wear what you like. I love these gorge loafers and I wear what I love! Regardless of labels or fashion rules. Rules are made to be broken, after all ;)

In case you're wondering, yes - these bbs feel just as buttery smooth as they look. There's usually a break-in period for me with new shoes, where they hurt to walk in. I haven't experienced that with these loafers! Right when I slipped them on they felt great, and even after walking around the Marina with Eddie, they didn't give me any problems. Yes plz!

Can you spot the seals? They were playing and squawking at each other, waddling around and cracking me up! Loved the one loner taking a nap by himself in the sun. Good for you, bb!

The majority of my shoe collection is black or brown, so this pretty blush color has been a very welcome addition to my wardrobe. Even though it's a shade of pink, it's subtle enough that I could pair it with all kinds of outfits and it would look fab.
