While Todd is usually the one globe-trotting in this family, this year has been pretty full so far with travel for me as well. I’ve been back to our old stomping grounds in Springfield to visit friends, home to Pittsburgh for different events relating to my brother’s wedding, and out on the road several times to meet up with Todd on different tours. When Naturalizer asked me this spring to partner with them and show how I would style their Kail slip-on shoe several ways for travel, I thought it was the perfect theme for the past few months (see looks one and two if you missed them).
I got to go out with Todd on the first week of their 3 month summer tour with Twenty One Pilots a few weeks ago and we had a day off between shows where the bus was parked in a giant mall parking lot. It’s not too hard to guess what I did that day and I found this super comfortable pink t-shirt dress that was just the thing to pair with my Kail sneakers and beat the summer heat. Layers are key to surviving the back and forth between the cranked AC of the bus and arena and the sweltering heat of the outside world— jacket on, jacket off, jacket on, jacket off! Anyways, on these arena tours, one thing that’s a given is that you’ll be walking a lot. Whether it’s winding through the giant arena maze to get to catering or the green room or just trying to explore a new city for a few hours between band duties, a good pair of walking shoes is a must and the Kail didn’t let me down!
The black jacket helps to balance out the sleek black leather look of the slip-on, the pink adds a pop of color to the overall look, and the pins on the jacket just add plain fun! The cat and cheese fries pins are my fave right now…
I liked this look so much that I wore it again out to brunch when Todd was home for a few days recently. I’m bummed that he’s back on the road already but so happy that I get to fly out tomorrow to join the tour for a few days. Outfit planning is always one of my favorite things so I’m glad to have a pair of shoes I know I can count on!
