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!!!
