Dressy Flip Flops

Flip flops...they are a delicate subject.  Everyone has their favorite kind and don't want to switch.  My favorite kind has always been rainbows

They go with everything...brown.  I mean really, what more would I need?  I'm on my second pair right now because of an unfortunate accident.  For MR.P's birthday one year I surprised him and had our good friends come in town for a visit...then surprised him even more by taking him to the mountains!  We went kayaking and I forgot my chacos :(  So I had to wear my rainbows.  It was soo sad.  They were ruined.  Now I am forever made fun of for wearing raibows while kayaking ;)  This was also the same trip my own husband threw a fish on me, but that is another story for another day!

Anyway, back to the point.  I noticed the other day that I really didn't have any dress flip flops.  I have dressy sandals, but not flip flops.  So I was in J.Crew with my mom the other day and tried on these.

I had seen these many times, but never really wanted to get them because I had my brown rainbows that match everything ;)  Well, I never should have tried them on!  I fell in love with them.  They do happen to be on sale right now for $39, but still seems a bit much.  So I was parusing and came across these
They are quite similar!  So, if you are in the market for some dress flip flops try out Old Navy.  These are on sale for $8.97.  I do know that the J.Crew ones are VERY good quality.  My friend Abby has a pair and said they lasted forever!  The old navy pair might last you one season.  So it's up to you! 


abby @ tales and trials said... my opinion I think the Jcrew sandals are definitely worth the $40. Before I bought my jcrew sandals this summer I went to old navy to check out their version. I decided that they wouldn't last very long {more than a season or two} I had my first pair of the jcrew sandals for 6 years so I knew I would want my new pair to last too. Plus the jcrew sandals are leather and the old navy ones are not making them not as durable or as classy/classic looking. :) But some of my friends have the old navy sandals and they like them. I just decided I wanted mine for the long haul

I loved my Jcrew ones, but they broke :( They did replace them, but that was quite a pain! I personally like Target for summer sandals :)
