Flip to the Flop

I love flip flop weather.

Actually, that's not exactly true, because you me, everything is flip flop weather. And I don't love ALL kinds of weather.

That's right my friends, I wear flip flops all. year. long.

Halloween? Flip flops.
Easter? Flip flops.
4th of July? Duh. Flip flops.
AAAAND...Christmas. Flip. Flops.

Really, I wear them just about every day. With very, very few exceptions. Like, in the snow. Come on, I'm not an idiot.

So, needless to say, my flip flops get a lot of wear and tear. So much so, that they end up looking like this:

Ah, my trusty brown flip flops.

I've had these babies for like...a long time. I'm gonna say...more than 3 years, but less than 5. So let's say 4. (Aren't you glad I might be teaching your kids someday?)

I have two other pairs of flip flops that look just like this, except one pair is black and the other pair is brown with white straps. They are in better condition than my trusty brownies.

As bad as they look, I think they're actually in pretty good shape...considering I've worn them so often for so long.

But dude, the time came that I needed new flip flops.
I searched and searched for some very sturdy, very plain, very awesome brown flip flops that might last me for the next 4 years. I've heard splendid things about the Rainbow brand, but they are like $45-$50. Hm. I also happen to know that American Eagle has rockin flip flops (that's what brand Old Brownies were) but they were still like $30.

Long story short (too late?)...I got new flip flops. American Eagle was having a buy one, get one 1/2 off sale on theirs so I went for it. And so, if you see me anytime in the next 4 years, there is a 1 in 5 chance that I will be wearing these:

Hello non-separated, uncracked soles and straps without any sign of fraying. Love you.

I also went for these as well:

They looked fun and comfy and a little different. Let's hope they're up to the challenge that is my excessive flip flop wearing.

So, there you have it. An entire post about me fulfilling my need for new footwear. It was just so epic to me that I thought I'd share it with the internetal universe.

You're welcome.
