Dear Shoes,

I really like you. Your bold print and colors are fun and fresh. You are reasonably priced, too. But let's be realistic; we're entering flip flops 24/7 season. I doubt I would need to call upon your services very often. Plus with this simplifying my life movement I've got going on, I'm really trying to be mindful of my purchases. You know, the whole "wants v. needs" thing? You are definitely not falling into the needs category at this point. But hey, thanks for letting me talk this out with you. I feel a bit better now...I think.

  1. Love your thought process/rational about these! Exactly what my mind goes through when lusting after something beautiful. Those shoes are lovely though!

  2. Oh, I can see you in these...but I understand. I've had a few heels with these kind of stacked wood and they wear very well. Hope you get to wear both flipflops AND these!

  3. I think we should stop calling it summer and just refer to it as it really is... FlipFlop season. I'm like you... I see all these fun summer shoes, but I know I'll be sporting the flip flops 24/7. Can't help it. :)

  7. What a great print. They'd look just as smashing with a colorful dress as they would a simple black (or navy or cream..) one. I think I need to buy them just so I can look at them. And sigh in contentment.

  8. Ooh...I love them. But I also completely understand your feelings about them. Glad to know you got it all worked out between yourself and the shoes. I hope you left on good terms with no hard feelings. :)

  11. Man, you guys aren't making it any easier for me! Especially you Alissa, the "Shoe Whisperer"! So I went back just to check on them again and they were out of my size :( Bummer deal.
