As majority of you all know, I ran my first half marathon last Sunday and got my toes bruised. It has gotten a nice color to them and I have been wearing nothing but flip flops this week. So my Friday Favorites are Old Navy Flip Flops!
For some reason or another, I can not wear any flip flops other than the Old Navy brands. Actually, it must be the flat regular ones, I can not wear the wedge ones either. If I wear a different brand, I always get blisters between the big and second toe. If that's not enough, I also walk like a retarded chicken. I envy all girls and guys that are able to where cute stylish sandals. These are other styles I can not wear, but wish I could.
Here are my current collection of old navy flip flops. Even though they only cost $2.50 (2 for $5, $3.94 retail), I never seem to want to get more than what I own.
My crazy obsessive behavior I have and get with my flip flops:
My favorite color was pink, so I wore all shades of pink last summer. My favorite color is now blue so I may switch it up this summer. =). My go-to sandal color is and always will be black. I had white ones, but they get really dirty really fast so I toss them at the end of the year.
Even when my sister's dog chewed up on my brown (as shown above) $2.50 flip flop, I kept on wearing them. You know as time goes and you wear out the flip flop for a while? Doesn't it just feel so good, because it hugs your feet just right? I was so pissed at the dog for awhile because it was my favorite flip flop at the time. I still to this day, have a grudge against that dog...lol.
One time, my sister who has bigger feet than me, borrowed my shoes without asking. I got heated because she stretched out my shoes. I gave it to her cause it just didn't fit right on me after she wore them. I didn't like the fact that I had to buy another pair and wear out the shoes to my liking all over again.
Old Navy flip flops are so comfortable, waterproof and very very affordable! So why not get $20 worth of shoes every season of the year? My reasons is this plain and simple. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". I think I have been with my husband way too long. lol. Too much of a good thing, is not good for you. Also they do clutter the shoe rack/entryway.
If you haven't thought of this before, and if you have...good for you =). These flip flops are so affordable, put a new and clean pair in your over sized purses (I know a few that are guilty of this) to have them just in case. You never know when your heels/feet are on fire and have your stilettos have a break, i.e. Bart, taxi, car, walking to work. They are so cheap that you can recycle or throw them away.
I may love these flip flops, but I can't wait til I am able to wear regular tennis shoes and boots again. Have a great weekend everyone! Happy Mother's Day to all the fabulous Mamas out there!! Enjoy the weather to the fullest, never know when Mother nature will change her mind and reek havoc!
