Shout-Out to Sandals

Since when did frumpy sandals become necessary wardrobe staples?

Every day, rain or shine, hot or cold, my biology teacher wore faded tan sandals with old white socks to school (not kidding. every. single. day.). The general opinion of his choice of footwear was negative; there were some days when the words “frankenstein feet” were uttered more than “binary fission.”

 In the two years since I took bio with Mr. Frankenfeet, that style of sandal had quickly transformed from uncommonly ugly to decidedly desirable. Shout-out to sandals for doing what every teenage girl hopes to do from the time they’re in middle school to the time they’re in high school! Their image turn-around has been so successful that practically everyone, including me, is currently on the hunt for pair of sandals (my mom already bought a pair! She’s ahead of the game).

While I was shopping around for the perfect pair, though, I was shocked at the amount of variation: some were color-blocked, others had gems, and a few were platforms! So, instead of looking for a pair of shoes to buy, I have to decide which pair I will buy (oh boy, decisions).

Here are some (of the many pairs) I’ve found online!

Maybe my bio teacher has a secret passion for fashion forecasting…

Flat-tastic!

As we all know school is about to start up again and, like me, I bet everyone else isn’t so enthusiastic about going back.

But, since I have to go back I thought I would feel better about going to school if I had a super cute backpack to put all my new school supplies in. So my mom, my sister, and I went backpack hunting today and we could not find a single socially acceptable backpack!! We scoured the shelves and decided to switch gears and look for some cute tote bags; they could be used as backpacks too! But still no luck.

On the bright side, in a few of the stores we got a little bit distracted and wandered into the shoe department. I haven’t been shoe shopping in the longest time! As I walked through the rows I fell in love with more and more pairs of shoes and I couldn’t not stop trying them on!

The flats stole the show, though. There were flats in bright colors and deep tones, with stones and with studs, printed and solid! They were all perfect, I was in heaven.

I want them all.
