Grand Wailea - Maui


It is ever relaxing and ever rewarding after a long winter of rain, hail and snow to dip toes into warm and heated sand only to be cooled off in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean.  The sun tantalizes the skin, waves playfully surround the body and a glistening pool beckonsw the overheated while kids build sandcastles, parents read, walk or run all with festive smile.   Getting to the the islands of paradise or a yellow orb infused location takes a wee bit of  apparel planning.  And, perhaps one of the most important packing essentials is the perfect pair of sandals.   The sandals must be comfortable, must be elegant and must last over time.   After a fun filled break, here are a few Forever Chic Style brands that tops the charts for sunny holidays or just for sunburst days.

'One shoe can change your life.'  - Cinderella


Casual Gorgeous Comfort


I.  Paul Green - Why Of Course:  Paul Green shoes are known for incredible comfort and beautiful designs.  Founded in Munich and cobbled in Austria with superior craftsmanship and attention to the finest embellishments.   The outcome is a brand that is desired by many for ultimate comfort and beauty all in one. After all, why sport sandals or shoes that bind the feet or are sky high demanding discomfort on a holiday?







A fashionista friend of mine stated, "Can you run in the sandals?"  If you can't run in the sandals then forget it.  It is Spring and Summer for goodness sake not the dead of winter when toes are covered and boots are royalty.  Seek out sandal comfort for vacations or just everyday sunny weather living.


What to Wear With - White Jeans

Just say NO - frayed hems, low rise, rips, destroyed or holes! Leave this look for the youth.  Grasp the Audrey white jean and be elegant and memorable while dancing in the sun.






Gigi


With Best Favorite Jean

Rag & Bone


Choose a skinny or straight white jean for Spring and Summer.  Frayed and flared hems maybe "in" but the look does not stand the test of time.

II.  The Fantasy and Fantastic Flip Flop:  The ultimate flip-flop is imperative for fun on a blue sky and sun vacation.  About five years or so ago, this fashionista invested in a designer pair of brand name flip flops for holidays in the sand and sun and they still reign number one.  This number is in  fabulous condition and remains Forever Chic Style comfortable.  Of course, others in the closet are in the race for a fluffy feet embrace between wears.   Oh and flip flops are meant for vacation only!  Repeat - vacation only! Really - so many sandals choices during daily routine - why flip flops?  So close to the ground and no sand.  It seems rather strange to walk around in flip flops at home unless washing the car.   Here are two favorites.

The Gladiator - Classic

Magical Paradise


After a day of sunshine, ultimate fun and ocean breezes, relax and partake in a glorious sunset.   Slip on a sassy pair of sandals, add a sun dress and swipe of lipstick for a magical evening.  The islands or sunny places across the globe hold a spell over many and continue to beckon year after year.  And, comfortable, pretty sandals that stand the test of time will be chosen over and over again for a festive vacation.

Happy New Year - 2021

  A New Chapter "Cheers to the new year and another chance for us to get it right." - Oprah Winfrey The end of the year fast approaches.  It has been a roller coaster ride for everyone.  The virus, lockdowns, tragic deaths, national election, and other elements caused for a turbulent and unforgettable year.  One we will never forget.  Some say this is the worst year in our history surpassing the depression of the 1930's, September 11th and various Wars.   Perhaps this is so because our country and the entire world shut down at various points.  Even today, lock downs exist, virus is on the rise and vaccines are being administered.  We will never forget last Spring and Summer when eerie photos of empty streets filled the newswires, epic violence occurred and of course endless news about the benevolent virus. However, we continue onward.  We eagerly move forward to a fresh beginning.  We wash away 2020 and start anew with a clean slate filled with possibility, hope and peace

Merry Christmas 2020

  Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas one and all.  May you have a very festive day.   What a crazy year!  At the onset of the year 2020, we all had the best intentions, goals, and anticipation.   Of course, 2020 proved to be the opposite of anything we expected.  Completely 180 degrees of "What Now?"   There is no need to explain because we all have lived it.  What is for certain is that the year is finally ending. Thank goodness.  Some have stated this was the worse year in the history of our country.  Whether it was or is not, the end is in sight and a vaccine is beginning to be administered.  Hopefully, we each can reassess what is important in our lives, anticipate some sort of normalcy swooping back into our lives.  After all, we are social creatures and being isolated is not healthy for the mind or the body.  Spirit of Christmas - The Christmas Star Last Seen 1226 Never stop believing in the future and unknown.  This season we all decorated to the nines, baked cookies, laid ou

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly! "Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly. Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread it
