where it all began.

i was in elementary school when my dad took the family to germany on what was probably our last vacay together. i remember the shopping...one store in particular that was really narrow, but like six or seven stories tall. on the first floor there were baskets and baskets of these canvas-type shoes with straw-like soles in every color of the rainbow...and i hadn't seen anything like it before, but i knew i liked them. i wanted one in every color, but mom said no...so i chose one with a yellow and blue pattern on it. they were so comfy, i think i wore them every. day.
and that was how my love for espadrilles began.

a few pictures below from last weeks golf tournament.

setting up our drink station, waiting for the tournament to start. we didn't really have a nice view...if only we were facing the other way, we could've been looking at the hole below.
the hole right behind us.
what we were serving up...vodka + cranberry; margaritas, and bloody marys.
no room in the cart, so mini-she had to jump on the back. she kept getting whacked in the head by the trees!

  3. What a cute story and some cute shoes to boot! I remember almost all of my "first fashion" memories. They explain so much . . .

  5. Last vacay together? =(
    Sometimes what we can remember since young never left us. You sure had the eye for fashion since young. I like your choice of espadrilles. Especially the one you're wearing. It's definitely not the ordinary like a slip-on.
