With my upcoming vacation just a couple of weeks away, I have summer shoes on the brain (more so than usual, I mean), and have even been finding myself lusting after flip-flops/thongs/whatever you prefer to call them.
Now, I know a lot of people absolutely loathe flip-flops, but I can’t share the hate, and while I don’t wear them too often at home (unless I’ve just painted my toenails, that is!), I find them really handy on vacation for trips to the beach or pool, or just for hanging around the hotel room. (Admission: I have a bit of a “thing” about bare feet on unfamiliar rugs and carpets, so flip-flops can be handy to have around in those situations: you can even wear them in the shower if it’s not quite as clean as you’d like, although asking to change rooms might be a better solution to that one…) And some of them are actually really cute, too: these Ted Baker ones, for example, cost a little more than I’d usually spend on thongs (I think my most expensive pair were some Havaianas, which I picked up on sale for around $8), they definitely win in the “cute” stakes, with that oversized bow!
Luckily for me, my lovely mum actually picked up a similar pair in the Next Clearance store a couple of weeks ago, so I’l be taking those with me to the beach next month: if you like these ones, though, they come in four different colours, and are £33 at Sarenza: click here to buy a pair.
