Ditch the Flip Flops

There’s nothing I hate seeing more than a nice outfit and I look down to see a pair of cheap flip-flops that have seen better days. I won’t pretend I don’t have a pair of those things in my closet that I don for a day down at the river skipping stones, but there is a stylish, and comfortable, way to keep your tootsies cool during the warm weather months.

Biancardi, Spring Shoes $45

Gladiator-style sandals made a huge comeback a couple years ago and really haven’t suffered a set-back in their less-aggressive re-integration into style. I love this style of shoe paired with a pair of jeans shorts and simple tank top. They’re fun and decorative, there’s a style to suit anyone’s taste – from the elaborate to the simple. Because they secure your foot from the ankle down, they’re the perfect sandal for mild activity like a bike ride.

Mid-Low Heels

Lettiere, Aldo Shoes $59.98

A little bit of heel in a fun colour like this adorable pink shoe with the heart detail works wonderfully with flirt summer dresses. The strong styling of that mary-jane sandal has the vintage sophistication of an era long passed. A mid-low heel is more comfortable for an all-day wear, perfect for an office.

I know, I know, people love their flip-flops, so here are some options to the sponge and rubber ones you’ve been wearing. They’re comfortable and stylish! Wear them with a worn pair of blue jeans and t-shirt, any pair of shorts, and skirt, and well, anything you’ve been pairing those other flip-flops with.
