The Ultimate Luxury Flip-Flop and a USMA Sweatshirt Photo

The main topic of discussion among the moms going to the Disney blogger mixer this weekend is what we will wear on our feet.  We all have two goals in mind — comfort and style.  But finding a shoe that meets both criteria is harder than it sounds.  We will assumably be doing a LOT of walking.

For me, my ideal summer shoe is the flip-flop.  But I know that flip-flops are generally not known for support and practicality when excessive walking is involved.  So I was planning to bring a pair of comfy ballet flats as well as my sneakers for backup.

UNTIL.  I came across someone in Big Mama’s Fashion Fiesta touting the Born flip flop.  Now, I know a bit about Born shoes.  They pretty much join marriage and style in holy matrimony.  So this morning I ran over to Marshall’s to see if I could luck out and find a cute pair for an affordable price, and behold — the ultimate luxury flip-flop!

Now I just have to break them in before Friday.

Also.  Here is proof that I have no pride.  My best friend from college read my blog post from this morning and promptly emailed this picture to me (me in the USMA sweatshirt) and I figured it might be good for a laugh or three.

Yep, that’s me as an undergrad, wearing far too much makeup and an unfortunate curtain of bangs while bumming around in her ex-boyfriend’s sweatshirt.  And I have NO idea why I have that frightening grin on my face.

Rest in peace, old friend.
