Spring Dreaming

February 15th, 2013

(image source clockwise 1, 2, 3,)

I am daydreaming of putting my winter coat away, longer evenings and family BBQ’s. The itch to find a new spring and summer wardrobe for my family and I has set in.

There aren’t a lot of items that I feel I would purchase a matching set for myself and my little ones (especially since they are both boys) but a Saltwater Sandal would hands down be one of them. Classic, comfortable and cute, these sandals work great with a summer dress for me as well as a pair of shorts for my boys. What’s great is they come in a variety on colors  that work well for anyone’s wardrobe. They have become a summer tradition in our home. Now I just have to decide what color to get each of us.
