Although most of the country is enjoying a sneak peak of Spring sun and warm temperatures, there’s nothing like dipping your toes in aqua water and soft sand. Today’s Spring Break Style is inspired by the relaxed and tropical look of Key West, FL.
Our sandal pick is the Minnetonka Belize sandal. It combines the fringe and beading accents people have come to love in our mocs and boots, with a comfortable sandal style you can wear from the beach to a night out. And to make the rest of your shopping easy, we pulled everything together (except Burt’s Bees) at American Eagle Outfitters, where they’ve curated looks for a variety of hot Spring Break destinations.
Did someone say “Key Lime Pie”?
When we think of the Keys, we seem to have a one-track mind – and it involves lots of whipped cream and tart limey goodness. Here are a few shops that get the stamp of approval.

Until tomorrow, travel safe!
South by Southwest Music Festival (SXSW) is in full swing this week in Austin, TX. We tapped into our inner Minnetonka rocker style and pulled together packing suggestions for those music-loving fans bouncing from stage to stage this week. Long a festival footwear fave, the Three-Layer Fringe Boot makes an eye-catching statement, and is comfortable enough to keep up with day to night dancing on your feet.
Does your Spring Break look more like a “Staycation”? You can still keep up with some of the best acts as they stream live (most for free!) on Daytrotter.com. A few of our favorite upcoming acts on their list are:
Rock on, Spring Breakers!
My colleague, Carolyn, and I are working from the semi-annual MICAM shoe fair in Milan, Italy, where we are sharing some new Minnetonka styles with retailers for the upcoming season and meeting customers from around the world – we have seen wonderful people from over 23 countries so far.
With long days in this style capital, we are happy to be wearing comfortable shoes (pictured: Carolyn (right) wearing Minnetonka’s classic 3-Layer Fringe Boot in black and me (left) wearing the new Smooth Leather Moc in black.)
Grazie, Italia, thank you for the great food, fashion and fun!

Today we started our morning with some Pinterest browsing, and that brought us back around to one of our favorite blogs to watch, wheredidugetthat.com. Karen Blanchard, the acclaimed British fashion blogger living in NYC, seems to dig up some of the best vintage finds, and combines both high and low fashion in her unique looks every day.
After seeing this combination of vintage-found sequins and fur + the Minnetonka Front Lace Knee Hi Boot, we were once again smitten with her style, and on the hunt for end-of-the-season sequin sales. That’s the way to spice up winter wear and kick off March!
Until next time,
