Favorite Things Party - Favorite Summer Shoes

I had my whole weekend recap post ready to go today when I remembered that it was Favorite Things Day!  Today Erika and I are sharing our Favorite Summer Shoes and you can link up and share yours OR leave a comment with your favorite shoe!  I need to know if I'm missing out on something amazing :)


Probably 95% of the time in the summer you can find me in flip flops.  Not super casual ones, but really flat pairs with skinny straps.  I know, I'm particular :) 

I typically go to Marshalls or TJ Maxx early on in the season and pick up a couple of pairs to last me through the summer.  I don't think I've ever paid more than $20/pair.  I like the skinny strap flat pairs because I feel like they're more versatile than super casual pairs.  I can wear them with rolled jeans...

 


As well as with dresses (which I have zero pictures of) or longer pants.


My current gold pair is by Tommy Hilfiger and I got them at Marshalls for $12.99 a few weeks ago.  I've worn them ALL THE TIME and I love them.  I searched high and low for them online to no avail, but here are two pairs that are similar in case you don't have a TJ Maxx or Marshalls close by.


  
 

If' I'm not wearing flip flops, my go-to wedges are this pair.


I love them with long jeans, cuffed pants and dresses.


 

And I loved them in our family photos this past May.


And speaking of family photos...


 All three of my kids LOVE Natives year round, but especially in the Summer.
They go from pool to playground to dinner with no problems.  They're amazing!


And since we're talking shoes, I get asked ALL THE TIME about Griffin's animal and other jelly shoes.  They're by Mini Melissa and they're the sweetest!  She wears Mini Melissas more than any other shoe and has never had a blister or any other issue.  They are scented (they smell like strawberry bubblegum) and are great because they wipe clean.  I order her regular size, but she's also been able to wear a couple of pairs that are a size bigger if I velcro the strap really snug.

  

  

So.... what are your favorite summer shoe(s)???  I wish that I could be barefoot either poolside or out in a lush lawn most of the time in the summer :) 

Tomorrow I'll be back with our weekend recap and then I have some red, white and blue activities and recipes as well as a Family Book Club on the books for y'all this week!  

Happy Monday, Friends!!!

  9. Time for new Natives for Carter. We were down to 2 pair that fit, and he lost one in a river a couple of weeks ago. and since it's ALL HE WEARS, we need more than 1 pair for sure! Your new wedges are so fun!

  11. When G gets a little bigger, you should try Cientas. They're sparkly Mary Jane-ish tennis-ish shoes (like that description? ;)) and they're scented, like strawberry! You can get them at Nordstrom and Amazon. Have a great day!

  13. My favorite summer shows are my sanuks! They are casual flip flops made from YOGA MATS. They are heaven on your feet. I wear them most of the summer with my tanks/shirts and shorts. They are more casual but since I am a teacher & off in the summer I rarely am in anything other than Nike shorts and a tank or tshirt in the summer so these sanuks go perfect with that! They come in a variety of colors too! I've had the same pair for about 4 years and they've held up great!

  14. Do Natives run true to size or big or small? I'm buying 1 pair for my daughter. She has 2 pairs of crocs from her grandparents but they both give her blisters so I was looking for something else. Thank you!

  15. My son gets such horrible blisters on the back of his heel when he wears natives. Has this ever happened to you? I always see your sons wear them and they look adorable, so I'm bummed they aren't working out for him!!
