Picnic Table

One of the things that I enjoy the most about summer are the family get togethers, BBQ’s and all the other fun activities that go along with hot summer days. Being able to share these moments, along with some laughs,  is something that is important to me. I have a big family, so I grew up very close to all my cousins. We always went to the park and played there for hours. Because of all those great times I spent with my family as a kid, I can still go spend a whole day at the park having a BBQ and be outdoors. This past weekend, we actually celebrated a friend’s birthday at the park. We had great food, such as carne asada, grilled chicken, rice and chips. But the best thing about it was being able to make new memories together.

New Friend

When it comes to style at the park, I always make sure that I am wearing comfortable shoes, such as sneakers or sandals, because I love to run around and be active while I’m outdoors. I already know that I will end up in the sand pit and on the swings trying to see how high I can swing. When I partnered up with Famous Footwear, I knew that my husband and I needed something that we could wear throughout the summer, since we always do activities with our families and friends. I decided to get a pair of sandals. I ended up getting the Brown Gladiator Sandal by Blowfishbecause I really loved the color. I loved the way the straps fit and the sole is comfortable. My husband Khris ended up getting the Chuck Taylor Black Leather Sneakers. He is more into sneakers so I was not surprised by his choice. I like the way the sneakers can be worn to the park or even a dinner date. The leather on the shoe is something that can be very versatile when it comes to styling.

Make sure you check out the #ohsofamous gallery so you can see some great styles of others wearing their Famous Footwear. And make sure you share your own summer styles by using #ohsofamous.
