July 7, 2016
Recently I was introduced to a new brand, Camtrade.  They make stylish, affordable, comfortable shoes!

First I tried out these Secret Celebrity Cookie Jar wedge sandal in a fun bright coral color!

I kept it simple with denim on denim with bold pops of color in my accessories.

I took my eye-catching new sandals downtown for a nice long walk. Not only were they super comfortable but I got lots of compliments on them as well!

I also tried Camtrade’s Soft Comfort Cross Lane sandals in black.

These are great go anywhere basics and comfortable enough to wear all day teaching once school starts again (for us, Auguust 8th, so before you know it). Both pairs are as comfy as the more expensive comfort brands for a fraction of the price.

I love when I can get one of the doggies to model with me!  

review of comfortable sandals

I went with a simple black and white look.  

And I’m all about the hats right now.  I do a lot of walking in summertime and want to protect my skin as much as possible!

And hey dolls, I’m going to take a little mid-summer blog break next week.  Don’t despair, Fun Fashion Friday will be back the week after, starting Friday eve (the 21st) at 3 PM PT.

Ready for some link up fun?!

    I could actually see myself wearing these—and usually I steer away from the Birk look! But, of course, you do have good taste!!
    thanks so much for hosting!!

    TWO outfits to oogle for Fun Fashion Friday this week?? You've spoiled us, dearest Dawn!! The first look is the perfect example of how pieces don't have to match to "go"…I LOVE the juicy pops of colour (care of that hat, the MK bag, and your new Camtrade sandals!) again the denim-on-denim combo!! And the second look?? In my book, you can never go wrong with black and white; especially when accessorized with super-cute sandals…and an even cuter pup!! XOXO
