It's no secret that my wardrobe has grown since I became a blogger. Over the course of the past few years, I've come to realize that some of my favorite pieces are those that have memories attached to them. It's not always about the actual items I'm finding for my closet - how I found them or where I wore them can often matter the most.
From the dress I had to hunt down for my college graduation to my favorite "power outfit" that helped me nail a magazine internship, there are so many stories that come to mind when I peek behind my closet doors.
These sandals, in particular, always stand out as sentimental pieces in my wardrobe. During my senior year of college, I spent my March Break in Italy and France with one of my closest friends. This friend was an excellent planner, and before we left she had compiled a giant list of places for us to visit on our vacation. Included on that list was an artisan sandal shop called Di San Giacomo in Rome, where you can design your own leather sandals that are fitted around your feet and ready to wear in a matter of hours. Both my friend and I had sandals made at that little shop during one of our final days in Rome. To anyone else, my sandals might not seem out-of-the-ordinary, but I love that every time I slip into the pale pink and gold straps, I'm wearing a one-of-a-kind reminder of one of my all-time favorite trips.
