if there is one quintessential pair of preppy summer sandals it has to be jack rogers. years ago, this iconic shoe was made famous by jackie kennedy. legend has it that while vacationing in italy in 1960, she fell in love with a whipstitched sandal with a rondelle detail. upon her return to the states she gave a pair to her cobbler in palm beach. when her friends spied the sandal they wanted a pair too. and so the perennial preppy classic was born.
guess who has eyed this brand for years but never pulled the trigger? that is until now. and for my very first pair, i chose white. don’t you think they will serve me well all summer long paired with shorts, skirts, dresses, and pants? for their first outing, i couldn’t resist wearing a simple black and white ensemble. the top is modern through and through with its take on the cold shoulder trend. but the pants are prepilicious with a cheerful botanical print. add a pair of jazzy earrings and i’m ready for date night with mr. style. now, how easy was that?
