Jack Rogers Style

Have I ever told you that I'm obsessed with the idea of classic style? I feel like it may be obvious through the outfits that I wear, but I feel like stating the fact is appropriate. I also not only love a classic style, but also timeless pieces that have made their way through decades of fashion, never ceasing to phase out.

For years now I've had my eye on a pair of Jack Rogers Navajo Sandals (worn famously by the beautiful Jackie O), and always thought they would make a perfect addition to the timeless side of my wardrobe. Founded in 1960 in Palm Beach, Jack Rogers quickly found the popularity it deserved in 1961 when then Jackie Kennedy was spotted sporting the Navajo Sandal as her resort footwear of choice. Today the classic sandal is still handmade in Florida (how amazing!), and has become a staple in resort and every day wear alike.

I was recently very graciously offered the chance to style up a pair of the classic Jack Rogers Navajo sandals. The classic style comes in so many different colors, from the classic black, to a mix and match of pinks, blues, and oranges, as well as themed college colors combinations, and also beautiful metallics. Although I am a fan of the classic black and brown, I thought the gold metallic would be so fun to introduce into my wardrobe.

I'm obsessed with the detailing, and quality of the sandal. You can really tell how much care went into making it, and that they are meant to last for decades to come.

Living in Arizona, I'm always on the hunt for the perfect sandal. The quality of the leather and craftsmanship, as well as how light they are, and the history behind them definitely puts these up high (if not at the very top) on my list of perfect sandals.

Jack Rogers is also a relatively small business, which makes them even more near and dear to my heart. They have an amazing social presence, and their Twitter, Instagram feed (username: JackRogersUSA), Facebook, and Tumblr feed have quickly become some of my favorites.

Since the 1960's the company has expanded their line to into a full lifestyle line. I'm pretty obsessed with their Rogers Slim Ballet Flat (they look like the perfect ballet flat, which we all know is so hard to find!), and the Napa Valley Mid Wedge (I LOVE the cork on these!). They also have a flagship store in New York City, which I hope to visit one day!

If you haven't checked out the Jack Rogers brand yet, I highly suggest doing so. Their dedication to quality, customer service, and the mark they have made on fashion history makes them a brand I will forever be dedicated to. Also, I feel like their Navajo sandals would be the perfect addition to anyones wardrobe (sandal weather is just right around the corner!).
