I have never been one to agree that “beauty is pain”. Sure, I have spent my fair share of time wearing tall heels or tolerating a bit of discomfort in a pair of shoes, but I don’t sacrifice my own comfort or dignity for a pair of shoes or new trendy item. The older I get the more I focus on comfort. Obviously I still want to choose items that are in style and cute, but comfort is my main priority.Before going to San Francisco I was trying to search for pieces that would be comfortable for travel without looking too “athliesure”. My biggest priority was finding comfortable shoes that I could walk around in all day. After spending several weeks in a boot I didn’t want to risk another injury on this trip. Finally, I decided to try these loafers from GH Bass. I had been eyeing them for quite some time and thought they just might be the perfect spring/summer shoe that is comfortable enough to walk around in all day. They are quite honestly a new favorite. I don’t think I have ever warn a shoe so comfortable before.My next discovery was these cropped jeans from J. Crew. I originally tried them on back in March while in Chicago and fell in love. I finally convinced myself to order them and I am so glad I did. They are a great summer jean! They have a great stretch to them (without actually stretching out) and are a relaxed fit. I wore them on our first day in San Francisco and even after 2 plane rides, a short hike and walking around downtown I kept telling Andrew how unbelievably comfortable these jeans are. I’m not one for sweatpants, but these are just as comfy in my opinion!Style is definitely important to me, but I don’t just want to look good, I want to feel good too! I have purchased so many cute things in the past that I rarely end up wearing because they aren’t comfortable or don’t feel “right”. So instead, I am focusing on comfort first.
