I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend. Today’s post is short, because I just want to quickly highlight two recent purchases that I have really enjoyed. They both happen to be 40% off this weekend, so I hope those of you who are interested get to take advantage of these sales.
The first is these incredibly comfortable Three-Strap Sandals from J. Crew (use code GETAWAY for 40% off). I took them in my normal J. Crew size, and found the fit to be consistent with my other J. Crew shoes purchased in the last year (the fit got slightly wider at some point in the last five years, but I can’t pinpoint the precise point in time when the change happened). They require no break in period, and are comfortable for even purposeful walks. With summer shoes, however, I always recommend applying anti-blister balm (or any lubricant… in a pinch clear ChapStick works just as well) to your feet in areas of high friction.
And the second is the “Classic Backpack” from Abercrombie & Fitch (online prices reflect the storewide 40% off promotion). I am a big fan of the slip pockets in the front, the zippered pouch in the back, and the zip closure that secures everything in the main compartment. It is surprisingly capacious and replaces the various canvas totes that I normally use when biking to picnic spots.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
