Florida is rightfully famous for its white sand beaches. With 1200 miles of coastline, Florida has half again as much beach as California. From the “Redneck Riviera” in the panhandle, the swanky beaches of Naples and the Treasure Coast, the tropical colors of Key West, the star-studded waterfront bistros of South Beach, to the unspoiled wild dunes of Amelia Island, you’re sure to find your perfect spot of sand.
Designer Emily Marshall found her ideal beach and celebrates it with these beautiful socks, inspired by the waves and dunes of Florida’s defining feature. Slip them on and feel the salt breeze on your face.
