I have a confession to make. In the summer, my footwear of choice needs to be comfortable and easy. I rarely wear heals or any other “nice” shoes. I don’t even like flats. Sure, I’ll dress up for a wedding or other occasion but my day-to-day footwear is casual, casual, casual. Like, flip flop casual.

I know that fashion bloggers hate them and think that they shouldn’t be seen outside of the locker room. I thought long and hard about them after reading a recent blog post that tried to put them in their place. I even felt guilty for wearing them for a few days but I’ve decided that I’m comfortable with their place in my wardrobe. I wear heels for most of the school year so when summer rolls around I want to be casual. I even like the way they look! They’re colorful and cheap and you can hose them off after playing in wet grass. In an attempt to diversify my summer footwear, I recently purchased these. Birkenstocks. I love Birks but recognize that most people don’t. Those people are wrong, obviously, but they exist in large numbers. Are these as bad as flip flops? Probably to people in the know they’re worse. But I’m happy and so are my feet.


sorry, sorry.

I’m sorry. I’ve been terrible at blogging this week. It’s hot, school’s busy (two weeks left!), my trusty photographer has been out of town, and I’ve been attempting to nail down some vacation plans. Mix all that together and you end up with one very lonely, sad blog. As penance, I offer up these pictures taken last Friday, or maybe two Friday’s ago. I’m not sure and I’m much too lazy to spend 10 seconds figuring out which one it is.

I’m a little late posting last Friday’s pictures but better late than never, or so I’ve heard. I love this blazer! It’s made out of sweatshirt material and is oh-so comfortable. I’m going to have to resist the urge to wear it every day, it’s that good. Every summer I end up with a jacket/cardigan/somethingwarm that’s my go-to item for any situation that involves air conditioning and I’m pretty sure that this blazer is my “it” piece.

Back later with a Memorial Day recap.
