Savoring the Last Days of Summer

Fall is such a beautiful, and busy, time of year. Despite my packed September schedule, I can't help but want to savor the last days of Summer, especially with the gorgeous weather we're continuing to have. So while I have a lot going on this Autumn, in addition to getting it all done, I make it an equal priority to spend time enjoying the weather and the outdoors, and to treat myself to a daily yoga class! Work-life balance is important to me, and having great shoes makes me feel confident and comfortable while I do it all.  

The shoes I have on repeat this Fall are the Adidas Women's Neo Advantage Clean Sneaker from Famous Footwear. These classic white leather, lace-up, tennis shoes are my simple and stylish go-tos for getting everything done and making it from morning to night in comfort. The minimalist design replaces addidas' signature colored 3-stripes with textured perforated stripes, and an equally subtle black and white stripe heel pull tab. These sneakers are good-looking and built well, with a padded footbed and rubber sole, so I love wearing them all day.   

As a self-employed blogger, on both weekends and weekdays, I work and play. This weekend was a good example. Vikas and I took a day trip to Mt. Vernon, Virginia to visit the estate of George Washington, the first President of the United States, and his wife, Martha Washington. We headed out mid-morning, and had a wonderful time touring the home and gardens, and learning more about George Washington's role in American History. The sprawling grounds require miles of incredibly scenic walking, and my tennis shoes could not have been more perfect for doing so. Wearing my sneakers allowed me to feel fully present and relaxed while viewing the historic home.   

After lunch and an additional walking tour, we headed home, mid-afternoon. Once we got back, I changed into my yoga clothes right away, and headed outside to our deck to fit in an hour on my laptop. When I changed my clothes, I put my sneakers right back on because they feel good and they're so versatile. Whether I'm sightseeing, or relaxing and getting some work done on the deck, these shoes help me savor the last days of Summer and get it all done.  In the name of work-life balance, no matter how busy things get, I treat myself to a yoga class every day. On Sunday, after a day spent outside with my husband, and an hour on my computer, I packed up my yoga bag and yoga mat, and headed to my car. Once again, my sneakers continued to look great and work with my yoga attire, not just at home, but also for heading out to class. When I look pulled together I feel confident, relaxed, and present, and for the third time on Sunday, these sneakers enabled me to be all three. 

Fall will always be a bustling time of year, and yet maintaining balance while getting it all done is such a priority for me. Having the right footwear makes doing it all so much easier.
