Thank you to Sperry for sponsoring this post.
This time of year, everything about me starts to crave spring and summer. I get over the snow, I get over the rain, and I start to feel a little bit of cabin fever. This time of year, like clockwork, I start longing for sun drenched days and family time at the lake.
The other day, I felt the cabin fever setting in especially badly, and I felt myself missing the calm I feel when I’m up at Tahoe. So… instead of heading downtown to shoot for the blog like we normally do, I asked Kourtney – my photographer – if she wouldn’t mind shooting up at Tahoe for an afternoon. She said she would love to head up to the lake, so I packed up my things and we headed to my favorite beach.
There is something about walking along the beach – especially at Tahoe – that immediately puts my mind and soul at ease. No matter how crazy the world is, or how long my to-do list seems, when I’m standing on the beach, dwarfed by those massive mountains in the background, everything seems to melt away. It’s amazing how the beauty of nature can always put things in perspective. Maybe it is that I literally feel just SO small in the presence of such magnificent beauty. Or maybe it is the calmness and the vastness of the water. Or maybe it is that there wasn’t another soul around for miles. I don’t know.
What I do know, is that walking along the beach the day we took these photos, was just what the doctor ordered.
Just as Lake Tahoe is my happy place – The Sperry Sailor Boat Shoe is my “happy shoe”. My dad has been wearing Sperrys for as long as I can remember. As a little girl, I always knew it was almost summer because his work loafers would get tucked away in the closet and out came his boat shoes. My husband is a Sperry fanatic as well, and a couple years ago I too joined the Sperry fan club.
Sperrys are timeless, classic, versatile, and more than anything, they’re just SO comfortable. I also love that their new design, The Sperry Sailor Boat Shoe is a more sophisticated, current version of their timeless classic. The leather is perfectly soft, I love that I can wear them with jeans or a sundress, and the colors they are showcasing are just SO stunning for spring and summer.
If you don’t own a pair – I highly suggest you order one – they’re seriously like a reset for your feet! A really pretty, timeless, reset.
