The Only Way to Travel.

LeBron does it.

Luke Wilson and Vince Vaughn do it.

And I’m doing it every day I’m here….Biking. In Miami of course.

Not only is it great exercise, but it’s fast, cheap, and no extra equipment is required. I’m recommending to myself this as my method of travel in the future. And before the fall of this year, I will be outfitted with a new bike–complete with a very comfy seat.

Owen and Vince Miami Bike Ride

A Mini/Miami-Break in Shopping Austerity.

I’m in love with DSW–The Designer Shoe Warehouse.

Though I don’t always find something I want, today I hit it perfectly.

Heading to Miami next week for a short, but much needed vacation, I find myself one shoe short of being fully equipped. In addition to my flip-flops and sexy heels, I’m in desperate need of something to walk and bike in.  Shopping in DSW today, I was almost overwhelmed by the variety of choices–and all at prices my wallet can handle.

I want comfortable but cute. Bike-able but not Birkenstock. Flat but not frightful.

In a scant 10 minutes, I found these very simple but quintessential summer flats. Dressy enough to dine in, but easy enough to walk in.

They were $39.99 full-price and also came in a beautiful turquoise. The brand is Bc and the style is “Green-Eyed Monster”–no idea why. Except maybe people will be jealous of my great shoes at such inexpensive prices…

If you haven’t taken a good look at DSW lately, I suggest you get your butt over there. The handbags were great too.

I settled for this warm brown to go with all of my brightly colored dresses.
