Get those feet naked. Really, please do. Do you know how many health benefits there are to going barefoot? Well, here’ s four: reflexology, strengthening, injury prevention, and it evens the workload across your whole foot. And that’s just the physical part.
There’s a reason foot messages feel so good. There is a reason you never wear shoes in yoga class…hmmmm. (Those yogis are on to something there.) There’s a reason we all want to walk barefoot on the beach (if you are a person who insists on wearing shoes on the sand, you are missing out). There’s a reason my feet feel like leather and I can walk on cement in summer with little discomfort. The reason? Going barefoot rocks. It feels great, and it loosens up your overall demeanor.
So, set your two feet free from time to time. Your whole body will thank you for it.

Our final stop on our adventure in Chile was Santiago. Santiago is a very modern city with a large population and is completely surrounded by the Andes mountains. From almost every point in the city you can see the snowcapped Andes, which made us excited to get up to the snow! We walked around the city exploring the many sites, restaurants, and one of the largest malls in the world. My favorite outfit during my urban adventures consisted of skinny black jeans, my fringe sweater, and a fedora. This was a casual, yet stylish outfit that was comfortable to walk in and perfect for the cool nights. I love the boho vibe of this sweater and felt it went great with all the brightly colored buildings of Chile.
After a couple days in the city we decided to venture up the mountain and end our trip with snowboarding. We actually managed to drive up the mountain, snowboard until dark, and then hop on our flight home all in one day!
