Graduating From The Ubiquitous & Ridiculous Flip-Flop

I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of over the whole flip-flop thing.  Sure, they’re easy, casual, inexpensive and all of those things.  But they’re also just…blehhh.  Noisy, unattractive, unflattering, and really, can they really even be considered a shoe?  I feel like I am about twelve when I wear them.  I think I’ve outgrown them.

Thankfully, there ARE alternatives!  There are so many great summer sandals.  Here are a few.  Are you ready to be a grown-up with me?  C’mon, it’ll be fun!  Here’s some inspo.

A.S. 98 Niall Wedge, $275

Bed Stu Seneca Gladiator, $135

Sarah Gladiator Sandal, $45

Classic Wedge Sandal, $49
