Hello there! I’m Carissa, and I am the girl behind the blog West Meets South. Born and raised in California, I developed a bit of an obsession with the south after my first trip to Texas. West Meets South is a place where I am able to bring together my west coast roots with my love of the south.
It is officially summer around these parts! Despite the scorching hot temperatures that we experience in central California, summer is my favorite season. With it comes some of my favorite holidays, relaxing pool days, and loads of summer bar-b-ques. Summer is also a time to pull out those cute summer outfits and pair them with your favorite shoes. My cherry Taylor ballet flats are the perfect summer shoe because they are so festive. They were a hit at a Memorial Day get-together, and they will also be the perfect shoe for the Fourth of July. They are the perfect all-American shoe!
All of my Oka-B shoes have become my go-to shoe since I was first introduced to the brand. Aside from the comfort and style they bring, they are also so durable. I am very hard on my shoes. I go through a pair of shoes in about three months, but so far my Oka-B shoes have proven to be very durable. They actually still look brand new even though I wear them almost every day. I know these shoes will hold up through out of all my summer plans and they’ll keep me looking cute as I travel!
