I remember my first day of school like it was yesterday..
I remember it so vividly because I had been waiting for what seemed like forever to start school. It was the eighties, and when we initially tried to register (wearing my new school clothes), we were informed that I did not make the cut off for enrollment. You see, in the good state of New York the birthday cut off for registration is December 31st. Makes sense, right? The last day of the year should signify whether someone is eligible to start school. Except for kids like me who were totally ready, but happened to be born on January 1st.
I walked away with a light backpack, and a heavy heart. I had to wait an entire 365 days before attempting to register again, so at this point I practically was sling shot leaping forward from my mother’s hands and into my future. I was excited and didn’t house a nervous bone in my body. I also was armed with my favorite new pair of shoes, the Reebok Classics. Except back then, I don’t believe they were referred to as a “classic,” they were just Reebok’s.
I remember shopping with my parents in anticipation for what I would wear on my first day. They are still a favorite of mine, which is why I was excited for their come back this year. It seemed only right I could share in this experience with my boys in getting their first pair of back to school Reebok Classics. I even scored a pair for myself. You know, for old times sake..
Reebok’s classic leather style pairs well with any outfit, whether you’re at school or on the playground. Their comfort is key, making it the perfect choice for moms on-the-go, and kids preparing for a long day at school. It may have something to do with the fact that they were originally running shoes.
With our new Reebok Classics were ready to kick-start a fun new year!

Summer fun comes with a lot. We’ve been traveling this summer and while we enjoy all of the fun new experiences, packing and unpacking can be arduous. I prefer to keep my wardrobe simplistic for the most part, and add in pops of fun here and there. I’m not quite yet a minimalist, but I like to keep it pretty simple. I am also by no means still in the business of donning uncomfortable shoes that are tight and damaging simply to complete a look. Call it age, call it wisdom, call it anything you want except a comeback. The days of me limping to my car from wherever I wound up because I have blisters and likely will be walking silly for a week are OVER.
PLAKA Sandals are a fun and convenient. I’ve been wearing these handcrafted sandals all summer long and I can’t get enough. Each pair is packed in a 100% cotton bag, that can be re-used afterward in many ways (earth-friendly). They fit neat and tidy into my tiny suitcase (perfect for travel), and look adorable with just about anything I wear. Their high-quality rope sandals make it perfect for all of your boho-beach needs. There are a variety of colors to choose from. Plaka Sandals are available in four different models – Palm Leaf, Seashell, Sahara and Oceanside – and in many cool and unique colors. I fell in love with the Sapphire Blue and Sweet Ivory with the Moca Sole. I received compliments everywhere I went!
Their high-quality materials made it possible that I could walk around all day in comfort. When packing for a trip I usually look for the following:
Like most beautiful things, PLAKA Sandals were invented almost by accident. Founders, Einat & Sagi, were away in Crete and purchased a similar pair of sandals. They had all the makings of a great travel sandal, so Einat and Sagi decided to make a few tweaks, and make them to sell in the US where everyone can enjoy them!
