i’m so excited to be partnering with famous footwear on this post! ever since moving to the suburbs i changed up my work schedule to a true freelance lifestyle. i can’t say i’ve reached the point where i’m a “full time blogger” (YET)… but i’ve been lucky enough to be able to free up more time to dedicate to working with great brands and creating content that really inspires my audience. that being said, oftentimes creativity blossoms when you have time alone, relaxed, and inspired by nature…. so i decided to have a little ‘staycation’ last week right at the jersey shore! i took an afternoon to myself and hung out in spring lake, which is a stunning town with a beautiful, calm, never-crowded beach. read on for how famous footwear was incorporated into my day trip, and how i’ll continue to weave them into my summer 2018 wardrobe!  Continue reading “summer staycation with famous footwear!”
