Reef Market: MACNA Women Edition

by | Aug 30, 2015 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Jeans, a tee-shirt, and comfy shoes are my go-to uniform for MACNA during the day – I know that I’ll be on my feet for hours, and I want to be as comfortable as possible.  TOMS sneakers davana - reefsLightweight slip-ons, like these from TOMS, are perfect for the weekend. They have a ton of different colors, prints, and styles on their website, and for every shoe purchased, TOMS donates a pair of shoes to a child in need. To date, they have donated over 45 million pairs of shoes, which supports improved health, access to education, and higher self esteem.

It’s from ZARA, and it can be worn all winter long paired with some cozy tights and a heeled boot. But whatever you decide to wear, I recommend bringing a sweater or wrap with you to dinner; it can get chilly sometimes in those huge banquet halls.
