Thank you Zappos and Teva for sponsoring this post.
I love living a spontaneous life due to a busy schedule and last minute projects. And with an on-the-go lifestyle, life is a lot easier when I have solid staple pieces in my closet, easy to pack and go… I always need to be prepared for any and every adventure life offers me. Carpe diem.
I also like to have my go-to and trusted websites to order from for last minute items. Amazon is great for ordering things like film, drones and cameras, however, Zappos is the best for clothing and shoes. (Funny that Zappos is actually owned by Amazon! Makes total sense.)
I remember hearing about Zappos from my dad about 14 years ago on a drive to softball practice when I was about 11. My dad likes to listen to interviews and educational discussions on the radio – the equivalent to our present day podcasts and Youtube – and I specifically remember an interview with the Zappos founder. I asked my dad what Zappos was because the catchy, unfamiliar name caught my attention and he explained to me that they were a new tech company that stood out due to their revolutionary customer service, unparalleled return/shipping policies and genuine company ethos. Later that week, my dad saved a newspaper article for me to read. It was an article on Zappos revolutionizing the industry with excellent customer service. I remember reading it and then later that month seeing a Zappos box show up at our house. If that isn’t great marketing fam, I don’t know what is.
Since then, I’ve ordered countless birthday and Christmas gifts, shoes, designer items, and TEVA sandals from Zappos because it makes everything seamless and accessible. Not only do they promise fast, free shipping, but they also have a 365-day return policy so you can really try different items without stressing whether or not they’ll fit right. Shop here.
*Also a major fact I just recently learned is that TEVA is pronounced Tev-ah, not Tee-vah. This blew my mind.*
TEVA sandals are another similarity that I share with my dad. I remember going on lake trips when I was a lil nugget and he always had his black TEVA’s on which always left funny tan lines on his feet. I even remember him wearing them with socks multiple times and my sisters and I had to explain to him that that was social suicide. He wore them anyways and now I realize that my dad is way cooler than me and was actually way ahead of street style trends and fashion bloggers.
Fast forward to today and now here I am traveling around in my modern TEVA sandals – a footwear icon. The new styles are perfect for all my Summer adventures from poolside in Bel Air to hiking in Palm Springs. TEVA sandals are versatile, comfortable, durable, reliable, AND waterproof. TEVA’s are the perfect Summer sandals. The velcro straps make them easy to take on and off and will always remind me of my childhood – full of adventure. And that adventurous and curious spirit is something I have carried with me throughout my life and I don’t plan on changing that anytime soon.
