Maybe I should back things up a bit here and admit that although I spend hours and hours a day browsing and shopping online, I’m actually a total mall lover. Like, I really love a good shopping destination. Kathleen and I actually discovered this about each other when we randomly ran into each other living our best lives at South Coast Plaza a few months ago. So naturally, we shopped on, did some designer handbag dreaming, and worked up quite an appetite that could only be satisfied with burgers and red wine. Naturally. For a shopping lover like myself, South Coast Plaza is as good as it gets. It’s packed with every store you could ever want to shop, from high end designers to fast fashion favorites and everything in between, and anytime there’s a new store that opens, I obviously have to roam on in there.
And fast forward back to now, when I found myself roaming on in to the spankin’ new Cole Haan store. Y’all, if you have not had your toes in a pair of Cole Haan kicks lately, then I beg you to go give ’em a whirl. The sneakers, loafers, and booties were cushy and so well-made, and I especially couldn’t get over how comfortable their heels are. Walkin’ on a cloud, I tell ya. And the drool-worthy picks don’t stop with the shoes. I mean, will someone please buy me this buttery little crossbody? The leather handbags and accessories are pretty killer, and the outerwear is comfy as can be. Plus, the store is just plain dreamy. You kind of want to go and kick back with one of the giant coffee table books in there. I’m not entirely sure if they’re cool with that sort of behavior though, so don’t go in there and tell them I said that. Do however go up in there and try on a few pairs of shoes. These sneaks are currently at the top of my list, and I’ve got a hot date with South Coast Plaza to make it happen.
