Road trips are totally the official pastime for West Coasters. If you’re in LA, your car is basically your second home! And there are few drives as beautiful as cruising up PCH. If you haven’t done it yet, there is no better time than the summer. Grab your pals, pile in, and enjoy the sunset along the way.
With that in mind, I know I can get away with a little heel height on the west coast since it’s likely we would drive everywhere. And I chose neutral color tones for my pieces - these espadrilles wedges sandals, lace up flat sandals and a pair of mule slides. It’s all about versatility because I can create multiple looks with these three pairs emulating the perfect chic summer look.
East Coast road trips have a totally different vibe. Yes, I live in LA but I’ll always be a city girl at heart. There is something about the energy here from the bustling streets, late night eats, and trendiest new bars it’s all I do whenever I am on the East Coast.
Comfort is definitely key when packing, but I refuse to sacrifice being chic! Walking is going to be a big part of being an urban explorer but with these 3 pairs of shoes, it made it easy to be comfortable yet on point throughout my East Coast adventure.
