The Traveling Tod’s

To me, travel and comfort perpetually intertwine with one another.  These past 2 weeks in Asia have been a complete whirlwind as I found myself running from meetings to shoots to sightseeing and of course catching up with old friends. It’s been nonstop since we’ve stepped off the plane, but I’m absolutely loving every minute of it. I always found it a bit challenging to find a pair of flats that could transcend from my morning breakfasts all the way to my fancy evenings, without , of course, sacrificing the chic factor. And although I love my flats, I’ve always preferred to be a bit dressier than casual…. even on my “off days”.  When I spotted these  TOD’S Gommino Driving Shoes in Korea I immediately knew that I had to have them.  The velvety & natural softness, exposed hand-made stitching, hot-stamped monogram, and the iconic rubber pebble outsole,  has been the absolute perfect travel flat.

When I feel equally comfortable as chic during the day,  everything else seems to always work into place. My shoes have always been an extension of self expression of my personal style- classic yet  trendy, sophisticated yet flirty, but most of all chic yet comfortable. sig-logo-9-125x125

Love the Tod’s loafers. They look super comfy. You definitely need a comfortable shoe when walking around the streets of Hong Kong. You seriously have to walk EVERYWHERE. I don’t think I can ever wear heels and walk around.

Isn’t it also super hot right now? My aunt has been telling me how hot it is.

You look great BTW!

    Agree 100% with you. Been doing lots of walking here in Hong Kong and wowwwww is it hot! The other day I had to step out of the building we were in to take some outfit shots and within 5 minutes I was drenched in sweat! lol But that did not stop me from exploring the city! Thanks for stopping by Maggie :)

    Chriselle ( June 6, 2014 at 1:15 PM )

Oh I want a pair of those! I think they’re so great for travel! x

Very cute and chic flats!



Vivian ( June 4, 2014 at 3:39 PM )

I can never find the right pair of flats when I travel. I’m always getting blisters.
Maybe Tods is my answer! Love the color
