With my summer vacations coming to an end for the season, I thought I’d share the one item I’ve worn the most while traveling the past few months. Trust me—I pack enough for a couple outfit changes throughout the day. You have to think daytime look and evening look, so when it comes to my clothing, I always have quite the assortment. I have to say, though, that my Maryam Nassir Zadeh mules earned the most spotlight time during my vacations this summer. Now I never travel without them; they are the perfect shoes and can transitional easily from shopping during the day to a romantic dinner date at night. I highly recommend investing in a pair, and I can vouch that they will quickly become your favorite shoes to bring on vacation. Shop my favorite MNZ slides below.
