10 Fabulous Boat Shoes ...

I adore shoes – all kinds of shoes – and lately I've been going through a phase where I'm in love with preppy shoes.

I don't know why, exactly, except they seem ideal for spring and early summer, they look good with jeans, shorts, or skirts, and besides that, the whole sailor/naval trend is really in right now.

That being said, there are some fabulous boat shoes out there at the moment, and I think they epitomize that style beautifully!

I'd wager that all of y'all know about me and my love for plaid by now.

That's why I think these are such fabulous boat shoes.

That madras plaid is excellent, and I love how bright the colors are.

Plus, the shoes themselves are hand-sewn, and I always love that kind of touch – you know your shoes are going to last nearly forever!
