I don't claim to be a fashionista, but I do try to keep up with the trends in my own little adulthood ways- like maxi skirts without the crop tops. (Showing your navel off is for someone 5 years younger and 20 pounds lighter than this chick.)
I guess what I'm getting at is that I like to dress my age. I enjoy the pencil skirts and blouses, the yoga pants sans words-on-the-butt, and the casual jeans/t-shirt look for when I'm out grocery shopping. Looks that are relatively "timeless" in our quickly changing fashion climate.
So imagine my embarrassment last summer when I came to the realization that my staple summer footwear- plain ol' flip flops- was out. For, like, everyone.
When summertime rolled around this year, I was prepared to shell out for a few pairs of blingy flip flops so that my feet would fit in...but holy cow! The upcharge from my regular $2.50 for plain flip flops was ridiculous. $30.00 for some beads and glitter? HA!
I'll just do it myself.
A little hot glue, some ribbon, a few beads, and 20 minutes later I had revived my flip flops!
