Camp Ferragamo

IMG_3193IMG_3242IMG_3311IMG_3374IMG_3370When I was younger every summer as my friends packed their trunks for Camp Kennolyn, I was usually packing to go to India, Argentina, or some far off land. Even though I hadn’t had the normal/ traditional camp experiences that most pre teen & teenagers were going experiencing, my attire for my families summer adventures typically did involve some of the classic pieces one would take to camp: a chunky knit, a bikini, denim cut offs, a flannel shirt (it being the 90’s), and what I like to refer to as the camp shoe. While there have been many styles of this shoe that have been stacked in their boxes in my closets over the years, this particular pair comes from the collection of vintage Ferragamo shoes my Grandmother has passed down to me over the years. With my back being the way it is these days and literally not being able to wear stilettos, footwear has been quite the style challenge even for moi, and this despite trends like athleisure. The camp shoe while having a slight stacked heel, is still comfortable and there is also just something I love about mixing a rugged piece with something feminine, like my tiered skirt. I am actually waiting for my knit camel pencil skirt to come back from my seamstress so I can pair that with these perfect, brown, suede camp shoes. This summer I have a feeling I will be channeling my inner traveler and pull out my pieces that take me back to adventurous far lands. “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one…”
