Flip Flops: It's a "No" for Me
You’re about to hear about my complete and utter disdain for flip-flops (outside of a few, select situations). Flip-flops are for: to and from yoga/pilates, taking out the dog, a fire alarm going off in the middle of the night, etc. Flip-flops are not appropriate for any outfit that requires effort.
Flipping and flopping about while making that heinous sound all flip-flops make… SPARE ME.
As you can see, I feel very strongly about the topic. If this isn’t your first time reading my blog, you know I have strong feelings on a variety of topics. When I’m passionate about something, there is no shutting me up.
So, I went on Nordstrom.com and they have a very liberal definition of what they consider to be a flip-flop. Allow me to explain: rubber “thong” (if you will) sandals. Now, before you tell me, “But, but, but Victoria…they have really cute Tory Burch flip-flops that have beautiful patterns on the sole,” NEXT! Save it. I’m still not here for it. You can wear those to pilates or yoga…like I said.
So what’s a flip-flop hating California girl to do? You stock up on sandal flats. Duhhh!
Plus, slide sandals are super “in” this year. They are just as easy as flip-flops and 1000x more polished. No one can make me think flip-flops are glam… No one. This blog is called "GLAMOUR Grace Faith," not Slovenly Mediocre Mess. I am an unapologetic girly girl. People do not come to me for advice on how to look a mess.
For those of you looking to wean yourself off those raucous rubber slippers, I have just the thing for you. These Sam Edelman sandals are extremely comfortable and versatile. Pair them with jeans, a skirt, a dress… the possibilities really are endless. Start stocking up on sandal flats that you can dress up or down. Just trust me on this one; it will be a lot easier for people to take you seriously without that rubber smacking the soles of your feet.
