Friday Fashion—The better summer sandal

No Flip-Flops

I'll be the first to admit that I will be wearing flip-flops this summer. Not entirely by choice, however. I would love to do away with mine, especially now that they're quite worn out, and don a pair of leather sandals for every day. You may think I'm crazy, but if we're honest with ourselves, flip flops really aren't that comfortable anyway. The strap always make my feet sore at the beginning of the Summer. They only trump other sandals with the convenience factor. Oh. And often, the price tag.

Do you have a favorite non-flip-flop sandal?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Here is a beautiful unlikely love story to enjoy during your down-time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

P.S. Treat your mom right. And if you're a mom, I hope you get spoiled rotten. Last year I was very pregnant, and woke up to find pancakes and fresh strawberries for breakfast, along with a Winnie the Pooh card with a very special note from my unborn child. That's right, Cody claims that our baby jumped out while I was sleeping and went to the grocery to get me some treats. And made pancakes. I have the best baby.

P.P.S. If you must get flip-flops, Havianas are the best.


  1. So I'm right with you in the "Old Navy flip flops should never have happened" department. Fleetingly I was contented in the J. Crew critter flop/Rainbows camp, but now I've seen the light.

    Eat your heart out. And by "eat," I mean treat your feet to the lightest, sturdiest, comfiest leather soles and don't-even-know-they're-there strappage. AWESOME. Not to mention the fact that they couldn't possibly have a cooler story. :)

    Love you, D-rex!

  2. um. woah. i love these! you are so fab. i'm going to check them out further in the morn, not to mention place them at the tip top of my wishlist!

  3. love love love all those huaraches! i'm addicted to them during the summers, so much better than flops!
