Yesterday, T. and I took a little day trip to Tegernsee, Germany, a little spa town just outside of Munich. It felt like we walked into a Grimm’s fairy tale crossed with a Cuckoo clock factory at the foot hills of some idyllic mountain town. To see as much of it as possible, we did a lot of walking.
While I feel that my sojourn in Germany this year has influenced my taste and style in numerous ways, one really tangible change has been my approach to footwear. If it isn’t comfortable and if I can’t walk miles in it, then you may just keep it, thank you very much. Living car-less and walking everywhere has made me really appreciate my flat and comfortable footwear and I wish I had brought more of that along with me here. I’m not saying that I won’t be seduced into buying a cute heel in the future, but I’m definitely gravitating more towards stylish and attractive flats these days. My favorite brand as of late is Camper, which offers so many stylish yet comfortable walking shoes, but unfortunately at mostly outside of my price range. But still, a girl can dream…
What I particularly love about Campers is their matching yet non-identical design on one pair of shoes. The left and right shoe ‘go’ together but are not mirror images of each other…
It was a good thing I wore my comfortable Palladium flats for our day trip to Tegernsee because we did discover a little foot path and trail leading to a gorgeous look-out point after about a fifteen minute hike. The view from that hill and all the picturesque details throughout the town made Tegernsee a real gem.
And after all that walking, we of course ended our day with mandatory beers and Bretzen at the local brewery. And it also happened to be my husband’s birthday yesterday - all in all, a perfect day. Happy Birthday, T! You’re the best, honey, and I look forward to spending a lifetime of birthdays with you still! S.
