Blue and White Striped Tee and Cork Heel Sandals

I always like to wear stripes, but a blue and white striped tee is especially essential for me in summer.

When we went on vacation to Avila Beach a few weeks ago, I took white capris and a white and blue striped tee.

I also wore my new cork heel sandals from Target. I don't usually wear heels, but one of my Instagram friends recommended the sandals, and when I saw them in the store when I picked up a few things before our trip, I decided to give them a try. I have a weak ankle, and I like that the sandals feel sturdy due to the cork block heel and the thick straps. I only wore them for a few hours, but while I wore them I felt secure, and they were comfortable. They certainly don't have a high heel, but for me wearing any heel is very unusual, and it's nice to have a low heel to wear once in a while.



When I posted a photo of the sandals on Instagram, I was contacted by Target and asked if I would give them permission to use my photo. It was fun to see it on the Target website.

When we visit the San Luis Obispo area, we always pass by the Madonna Inn. The big pink building can't be missed. We also have several friends who have said that everyone has to visit the Madonna Inn at least once. So on our way home, we decided to stop by. We went for a late breakfast/brunch and were not disappointed. I ordered the corned beef hash with poached eggs after reading about it on Yelp, and it was very good and a standout for me. The atmosphere is a bit over-the-top and very unique. It's definitely an experience!

Unfortunately, at that point of our vacation, we weren't in the mood for taking a lot of photos anymore, so there aren't many...





Questions: What are some of your go-to summer combos? White pants and a striped tee is certainly one of my favorite summer combos.

Be well,
Andrea

  9. Love this look, I don't know why I didn't think of it, going to do this look next! :) Those heels look super comfy, might have to go get a pair for myself :) We are headed to SLO in a couple of weeks, so excited, we also stop at the Madonna Inn for a restroom break, their restrooms are so nice! Have never actually eaten there for how many times we've stopped in there!

  15. They do look comfy and stylish, and match really well with your outfit. I tend to go for Navy more now that I don't wear Black. I do however feel more comfortable in heels than flats. I think my feet are moulded that way now! xx

    1. Thanks, Laurie! My weak ankle needs a lot of support, and that's why a block heel with sturdy straps works for me, at least for a few hours...
