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…

Pretty Spring Dreeses

If you’re looking for the perfect pretty Spring dress know there are so many options this year. From beautiful prints, to flattering silhouettes! This Spring is the perfect time to update your closet. What I am loving most is the fit and flare or a-line shapes we are seeing so much of. The a-line is so reminiscent of the 50’s and has remained timeless for a good reason, it has a universally slimming effect on every body type, as it hides curves, frames curves and will create curves for those who need a little extra help.
Have fun with these lady-like silhouettes by adding a statement shoe. Try a stiletto in a bright color or one with unexpected detail. An edgier shoe is a way to off set the extreme femininity of these gorgeous dresses!
Happy Holidays!
