South of the Border: Travel Journal Day 1

12:28:00 PM

Day one of any trip is always bound to be a little crazy, and this one was no exception. What is it that they say about the best laid plans..? Anyway, after getting into Cancun around eleven at night, we took (the most terrifying) bus ride from the airport to the city center, so that we could hop on a taxi to our cute little air bnb (side note, there are no marked lanes on the roads here, so it's a little bit of a driving free for all, turning any journey into an exciting roller coaster ride). 

Well, as a result of my severe lack of Spanish, and my stubborn insistence of staying in "authentic" areas of town instead of the popular resorts, we somehow ended up in a random residential area at one am, yelling our host's name down the (wrong) street. Long story short, we eventually found our way to our room, but it made for quite the experience. The next morning, walking the streets of Cancun in search of pesos, bus tickets, and Starbucks coffee, I was extremely grateful for my Alegria shoes, which had made the crazy journey a little more bearable. 


Alegria Fall 2015 Highlights

11:58:00 AM


Every year we get in new fall styles and colors that blow us a way with their funky patterns and amazing colors. That’s what folks have come to love and expect from Alegria Shoes. Today we are going to highlight two new Fall 2015 styles that are quickly becoming our favorites.

The Debra professional shoe is often seen as the ‘nursing shoe’—and it is—but that’s not all. I rock the Debra with jeans all the time! Debra has come to be one of my favorite styles for many reasons. First, it has the full rocker bottom. What is the full rocker you ask? Well Alegrias come in a variety of outsoles nowadays from the lower, mini rocker of the Belle to the Career Fashion wedge type such as Ella. But the full rocker has always been my go-to shoe with its higher base and curved rocker shape at the front of the shoe. I like the height it gives plus the support when I walk. The Debra Primary Impressions is simply a gorgeous shoe.  It has this amazing bubble texture that makes the colors seem to come alive! Speaking of colors, I’m not sure if I have anything in my closet that these shoes won’t match.

The next shoe is the Alegria Classic Choco Shearling. I’m so happy to see this shoe again! Alegria offered this shoe to us several seasons ago and we all fell in love. Awesome Alegria comfort PLUS cozy shearling lining. I have quite a few friends who say that these became their favorite slippers! And then it was gone. But now it’s back! Full of fuzzy shearling lining and beautiful suede. Perfect cool weather combination.
Check out all the new Fall 2015 Alegria Shoes that have arrived! Just a little while longer and fabulous new boots will be here too! Stay tuned.
