Bohemian Adventures with Coach :: The Effortless Chic 1

Lately I’ve been totally overcome with a severe case of wanderlust.  People always tell you to travel while you’re young and get it out of your system, but I’ve traveled through a dozen different countries on four continents and I don’t think it works that way.  I think the more of the world you explore, the more of it you desire to see.  It’s an incurable disease in the best possible sense.  We’ve partnered with Coach on a series of posts over the next month and let me just warn you, their spring shoe collection is enough to make you wish you were dancing in Rio or adventuring in Tulum.  Luckily, the combination of exotic accents and vintage leathers will make you feel like you’re on a tropical getaway, even if you are only navigating the busy downtown streets of your city or the neighborhood cafe at lunchtime rush hour.

Mary and I stumbled upon this succulent / cactus garden off of Topanga Canyon and were in heaven.  I’m still not sure exactly what it is except that it was very easy to get into and we were the only ones there.  If you’ve never explored Topanga Canyon, it’s a definite must.  Somewhere between the beach and the valley on this long and winding canyon road is the most beautiful hippie/artist enclave complete with restaurants and shops of all varieties.  Of course there would be a succulent garden open to the public on private property there.

Even at nearly nine months pregnant, I have to admit that these shoes are incredibly comfortable.  The stacked heel lends itself to trekking through different terrains without the least bit of unsteadiness… even while balancing this giant basketball belly.

While we might be a little more home bound this summer with baby girl’s arrival, we are in luck that there are so many interesting places to explore nearby.  When was the last time you went adventuring in your own city… in heels?
