{sperry}... boat shoes

(images via herimajination)

i picked me up a pair of the sperry boat shoes some weekends ago. i just love the fact that i can pretty much make any outfit look preppy by throwing on a pair of these! you can go for a casual look my pairing it with khaki/denim shorts, cuffed jeans or even a summer dress, but you can also dress them up with a trouser and blazer. you get the best of both worlds!  

they also come in all sorts of different fabrics (canvas, leather, metallic, suede, seersucker) making them wearable all year round (maybe not in NY...but at least for LA). 

i got mine in white canvas so it will be my "go to" shoe this spring & summer! when fall comes around...i'm sure i'll be picking up another pair in leather or suede.

tired of your ballet flats? try changing it up with a pair of boat shoes. but...if the boat shoe is NOT your thing...maybe a pair for your man? i mean...who doesn't like a little hint of preppy-ness in a man? certainly not me!

  4. I'm liking this idea. I would go for the silver metallic ones, which I could see going with everything. Can't wait to see how you style your pair. ;)
    My husband does have a pair of mid top boat shoes from J.Crew...Wish we had the same shoe size.
