Dear Girl in front of me in Starbucks in Newport,
Those polka dot espadrilles are adorable!The bandages on your blisters? Not so much.
You're young. Eventually you'll figure out that cute shoes needn't torture, especially if they fit right. For now, keep in mind that it's always smart to pack an extra pair of shoes, something not so dressy--and definitely more comfortable--for the morning after your date when you're getting your latte on.
Good luck to you...oh, and be careful, the left one is about to come off!
