I have never been into going barefoot. Even in the country.
Something about dirt or grass squishing through my toes just send shivers up my spine. On the other hand, I also loathe wearing socks and shoes in the summer.
Before I had children, I was free to experiement with strappy sandals, all manners of heels, bright colors and unique patterns. Since children, things–and shoes–have changed. I spend most of the summer in an old pair of Reef flip flops. And while I do love them, this summer I would like something a little more fashionable.
Around town, I have noticed gladiator sandals I like, but I have the idea that they would make my somewhat short and stubby legs look shorter and stubbier.
They are perfect for conservative Boston: comfortable, JCrew, classic. But also perfect for me: minimalistic with the slightest hint of flash.
I am going to make these my everyday sandals. Is it just me or is JCrew making a major comeback? I have not been into them for more than a decade, but their latest catalog made me stand up and take notice.
Yay! New/old favorite store, new shoes and a new attitude. Bring on the maragaritas.
