I've Flipped (Flopped) Over You

I have a confession to make.  I love flip flops. I guess you could say I have a little collection.  I wear them when I am hanging around the house.  I wear them when I am running errands on weekends.  I switch into them as soon as I get home from work during the warmer months.  I blame it on growing up in the heat of South Florida.  In fact, one of my pet peeves is having sweaty sock-clad feet.  Plus, I love a good pedicure.  All good flip flop hoarding excuses, no?

So I decided to share my collection with you.  See the expression of disgust on Meatball's face?  This is the look I got when I started pulling my flip flops out of the closet to take a few pictures.

And when I  was done, I had a little something that looked  like this.  Yeah, I store my non-dressy flip flops in a plastic storage bin. That's right, I said my non-dressy flip flops.  Hmmm...maybe I have a problem here.

Dressy flip flops: Anything embellished, shiny, or leather.  My "pretty" flip flops. 

Of course, the pups wanted to check everything out.  Petunia and Harriet were obviously plotting new ways to turn my shoes into their newest chew toys.  Meatball is also looking at them with disgust.  He is way to sophisticated for this. 

Now for the newest memeber of my collection.  This weekend, I discovered these.  They have a sort of memory foam-like gel inside of them.  You can see the way the footbed looks puffy and quilted.  And they are so comfortable.  Especially for feet that have been in heels all day.

Don't get me wrong. I love all of my wedges, sandals, pumps, heels, boots, slides, and flats too. But there is something about the allure of flip flops that calls out to my wallet.  And my aching,  (sometimes) sweaty, running around work all day, feet.

What about you?  Are you a fan of flip flops?  How do you store yours?  What is your go to shoe for the summertime?

I actually have to talk myself OUT of wearing flip-slops. I love them but I know they are not professional. I'm torn!
