THE perfect summer sandal…

This time last year…I was prancing around Greece on the most amazing vaca ever! On the top of my to-do list in Athens was to pay a visit to Pantelis at Melissinos Art. Pantelis is a third generation sandal-maker. His father made sandals for Jackie-O (Love her!) and the Beatles, just to name a few.

Here’s a picture of us with Pantelis. I was so excited to be at the store and sit in the exact chairs that the Beatles and Jackie-O sat on when they were fitted for sandals!

Here’s Pantelis working on my Jackie-O’s!

I got 2 pairs…the Jackie-O (shown at the top) and the Theta(pictured below). The best part is..they were so affordable at around $35-40 each. These hand crafted sandals are PERFECT for running around on hot, summer days and they are extremely comfortable.

You can order them online at the Melissinos Art website. Enjoy!!

Currently Loving: slouchy, cropped pants

I am loving the easy, relaxed feel of these slouchy, cropped pants. After waiting for the above pair to go on sale at Club Monaco for weeks, I just ended up paying retail (gasp!) for them.

Pair them with an embellished tank (as shown above) and gladiator heels for a night out on the town. For a more casual look, throw on your favorite white v-neck and a chunky leather belt (my ensemble to church today).

What to look for when purchasing these pants:

  • They should be roomy
  • They should be tapered and cropped (fold them up a few more times if you are vertically challenged)
  • They should have pleats
