Back in the day, when I had to go into an office for work, I took pride in my shoes. Most were black, closed toed conservative low chunky heels. Then I moved to LA and embraced the high heel, finding comfortable 2 inchers that I could walk the dog with and even go for short hikes. However, it’s recently come to my attention that I’ve reached a new level of shoe wear – the flip flop.
Unless I’m meeting with clients in person, I’ve got flip-flops on my feet. Almost constantly! They are what I put on first thing in the morning (when I even bother to put on shoes) and unless I need shoes with specific features (like a traction sole) I find myself shopping, walking the dog and really any kind of errand in my bright blue flip flops.
When did the transition occur? Not long ago I used to wear my old standards – a pair of black mesh tennis shoes. Now I can’t find them anywhere and my flip flops are always so convenient. So much for wearing flip flops for watering, cleaning or going to the beach; they’re not business wear!
