Are Flip-Flops A Shoe Option?

image

It’s that time of year again when you’re tempted to just throw on those flip-flops and run at the door! Many people ask, is this acceptable footwear or not?? I will blatantly answer this question with this simple answer…FLIP-FLOPS ARE NOT A SHOE OPTION, they are not shoes! They are a flimsy piece of rubber or plastic to serve only for the following purposes;
Going poolside
A trip to the beach
Walking your dog in your yard
Getting the newspaper or mail from the end of your driveway
And with a stretch….a backyard barbecue

Here’s where they are absolutely unacceptable;
Work!
A wedding
Walking in a city
On a walk period!
Shopping
Lunch with the ladies
Dinner out

The obnoxious flippity-flop, clippty-clop sound they make should be a signal to you that they won’t give your body the healthy support it needs, let alone give you a pulled together look!

There is such an array of great foot attire out there to substitute your flops for that will have your feet looking good and feeling good! Here are some alternatives…

2014 Color Of The Year…Radiant Orchid!

Pantone has officially announced the color of 2014…Radiant Orchid! Here is what Pantone’s executive team had to say about its choice: “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” What do you think of it? Yay or Nay? I personally think it’s a vivid, happy shade that will flatter all skin tones & hair colors, and will can a dose of fun to interiors (my bedroom is orchid, it’s such a beautiful color!) and design elements in general. If this color makes you nervous try small pops at a time…a manicure or pedicure. a scarf with just a hint, or go a little bolder with a shoe or purse, or go full on and wear an orchid leather dress! Try this gorgeous shade, I promise it will have you looking good! xo Robin
