White on White: Labor Day Style

Blog-Labor-Day-Featured-Image-Naturalizer-080515
The dog days of summer are officially here, which means that Labor Day weekend is quickly approaching. We don’t know about you, but we always like to bid summer farewell with a white hot outfit! And while wearing white after Labor Day is certainly A-OK with us, Labor Day marks the last weekend where wearing white walks the line of being a fashion faux pas. So weather you’re heading to a nearby beach, getting on a plane for vacation, or just staying right at home for a backyard BBQ, be sure to have your favorite white looks ready this Labor Day.

A white-on-white look can be achieved by pairing a white dress with your favorite espadrilles (and a fedora would be a fun touch), pulling your comfiest white pants on with a bathing suit and white gladiator sandals, or simply kicking back in white sneakers, white jeans, and a white polo shirt. Whatever you decide, you’ll look summery and stylish as you celebrate the long weekend with friends and family. If you love “all white everything” as much as we do, you won’t be able to get enough of the picks below!

Summer Harvest Style: Top Looks for Gardening!

Gardening-Blog-072815-6
August is finally here, which means it’s time to start harvesting all of those vegetables you have been tending to all summer long! But harvesting doesn’t have to be just about getting down and dirty in your garden. We want to make sure that you make your neighbors envious of your garden style, while also keeping you cool and comfortable while you’re watering, gathering, and kneeling. So grab one of our favorite sun hats and try one of our shoe picks below, and then all you will need is your trusty basket to start collecting all of your delicious tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, and more!

Sun Hats
Since August temperatures can be sweltering, some SPF and a sun hat are must-haves when heading out into the garden. If you can, you might want to get out there very early in the morning or in the mid to late afternoon, when the sun is lower and the temperatures are cooler.

Garden Shoes
With all of those hours spent on your feet and knees, every green-thumb needs a comfortable and durable pair of garden shoes. Look for styles that slip-on for an easy transition in and out of the house. And most importantly, styles that are rubber and easily washable are key, so you can hose them down after covering them in soil!

Top 10 Shoe Looks for Boating

Sperry-Boatshoes-Featured-Image-072315
Labor Day is just around the corner, and with it sadly often comes the end of one of summer’s most popular pastimes: boating.

Don’t worry! You still have a few more weeks to get out on the water and enjoy the beautiful summer weather. Spend a weekend boating with your friends and family, or even just enjoy some quiet alone time at the waterside. Whatever you choose, we want to make sure that you (and your feet!) are fully prepared for the comfort & relaxation while out at sea. So today, we are highlighting some customer-favorite boat shoes for both men and women. Browse through the picks below, and then hit the boat decks in style!

Choosing the Best Boat Shoe:

Your new boat shoe should have a sole that boosts your traction, keeping you grounded on a slippery deck. The sides should be resistant to water and open enough to make your shoes nice and breathable. Don’t forget to look for a padded insole to keep you feeling comfortable even if you’re out on a full day-long adventure!

In terms of your gear, you’ll want to think about the night-time temps and plan for insulated sleeping bags if needed – what works at home for sleepovers, may not be the right gear for an outdoor adventure.
