Girl Talk Hop: SHOES!

I have to be honest, I was a bit intimidated by this week's blog hop topic. I mean, let's be honest. If you've seen pictures of me, or if you know me personally, you know I am about as far from a fashionista as they come. But then I thought, who cares if my shoe post is not about FASHION. At this point in the game, I am all about COMFORT. So I thought I'd share my 3 go to pairs of shoes.
My 3rd runner-up: Boat Shoes.

Recently a friend told me that she loved her boat shoes, but she felt like she looked weird in them. I think they are SO cute, so comfy, and can be dressed up a little if you wear something casual, or just worn with shorts. When I was working, we weren't allowed to wear open toed shoes, and these were my go-to shoes. Sadly, Brayden busted an entire case of freezy pops on my pair of boat shoes, so I need to go and get a new pair before winter hits. I get off brand boat shoes, and so far they have held up really well.

2nd runner up: Birkenstocks. I wear both the sandals and the clogs, depending on the season.

Seriously, the most comfortable shoe ever. They are great for your feet... you can read about some of the foot health benefits of birks HERE. I buy brand name birks... off brand just doesn't cut it, and honestly you end up spending the same amount of money since name brand birks last 5 times longer than any store brand I've ever tried!

And my top shoe of choice: Old Navy classic flip flops.

If it's warm (and sometimes even when it's not), you'll find me in a pair of these babies. They are so comfortable, they are easy to match with outfits, and they are CHEAP. I seriously wear them into there are holes in the bottoms, and then just go back and pay another $2.50 for another pair! This summer, I've worn my flops so much that I have callouses where they rub on my feet (in between my toes and then near the heel of my foot where the strap rubs). 
And those are my top 3 pairs of shoes. Obviously I have a brown and black pair of heels and close toed shoes, but this is what you'll find me in the most. Be sure to check out Girl Talk for more entries in our SHOE blog hop this week!
