We never tire of a seemingly on-point pairing. And when the duo just happens to be a couple of our fave — not to mention Bay Area-based — faces, it sweetens the deal in a major way. We’ve been fans of sole-focused shop Ashbury Skies for a while now and are always eager to see what the gals behind the brand have a-brewin’.

Check out the sun-soaked images yourself, but be prepared to want to pin the hell out these pretty pics.
But wait, there’s more! To celebrate summer solstice, Ashbury Skies wants to offer a 20% discount to R29 readers. Just enter the code INDIEGIRL20% and save on all styles — including sale items. Hurry though, it expires June 30 at midnight.
