Carmel is one of my favorite weekend destinations not only for the beaches/attractions but for the top rate shopping. Some of the shops include a Coach outlet, clothing stores and my all time favorite Lloyd's Shoes. Lloyd's Shoes has an eclectic selection of designer shoes and a sales staff that knows how to help you find just what you are looking for. A month ago, I went in with some friends and found the perfect summer sandal from Bolo, the brown Minuet. The sandal has a nice wedge heel, are made of soft leather and most of all are comfortable enough to wear all day. I tested them out by wearing them while walking all over Carmel that day - and they still felt comfortable. While I purchased the brown wedge, I may just have to purchase the Sharise in Black or the Margot in silver to have different colors/styles.
Bolo shoes are carried at other stores in the SF/Bay Area, but why not head to Carmel for some sun and shopping?
