Check out my collaboration with a shoe brand I've loved for over ten years, Matiko. I wore their gorgeous and fun slides and sandals throughout my trip in the South of France.
This is my second post of many recapping and posting on my two week trip to Europe that started in the wine region of France. We then made our way south to Cannes, where we stayed in a gorgeous seaside village, Theoule Sur Mer, perched up on a hill overlooking the French Riviera. We got so lucky with our hotel picks, and I will share why and what I loved and could do without in Friday's post. For today however, I wanted to share about Matiko shoes, a brand I have loved since college for their fun and trendy shoes, specifically sandals. that are well made and so comfortable! I was loving these swedish blue suede slides. I wore them a ton throughout the trip. So easy to slip on and go, and they looked chic and minimalist which was perfect for France.
I only collaborate and wear pieces from brands I truly love and was so happy to receive shoes from Matiko. They are based in Los Angeles and family run which I love. You may recognize them since they sell their gorgeous leather shoes on some of my favorite sites such as Shopbop. I was so thrilled to collaborate with them because I have been wearing a pair of their sandals since 2006 when I bought my first pair in college. They still look great, 11 years later! I love them still.
I threw on these tie up sandals to head to dinner and love how they are casual but have a little heel to make any look a bit more special. They are so comfortable and the suede is so soft!
I also loved these fun fringe slides and wore them to the pool and the beach everyday. I got so many compliments on them and they really made even the most basic look seem so festive and fun. I try harder with my style on vacation because it just feels so good to me to be in a beautiful place and look pulled together and fashionable. I always say that looking good and putting a little effort in makes all the difference in how you feel, and that is reason enough for me! So much of the time when I'm not running errands, at a casting, or shooting for the blog or work, I am at home editing or working on my computer for the blog. So, getting pulled together everyday multiple times was so fun and made me feel human again! It always amazes me how a cute outfit and a little makeup can make all the difference in how I carry myself and how I feel.
