Simple Summertime Pleasure

Joining Dayle's Simple Summertime Pleasure Party at A Collection of This and That.

For me, a supreme simple summertime pleasure is wearing sandals.

It's so easy to just get up in the morning, slip on a pair of sandals, and start the day.

I usually have several pairs to choose from. None were particularly expensive.

It's very true that I like "lah lah" sandals, you know, the kind with sparkling doodads and jewels. Yeah. That's my style.

The gold sandals shown at the top are referred to as my Cleopatra sandals. They make me feel decadent.

Then, here are my fancy shancy silver ones. Too bad the stones aren't real diamonds. ha!

These are black with sparkles.

My all time faves, being worn for the second summer in a row, are multi colored sequined ones. Ooooo, they have been sooo comfy. 

 You've heard the expression, "As comfortable as an old shoe?"  Well, as comfortable as a well worn sandal is true, too.

These have been worn a LOT and I still love them. Don't know how much longer they will hold out, though.

So, that's it. Sandals are a true simple summertime pleasure for me, and I'll be sad when the weather turns blustery and they will have to be put away til next summer.

I love sandals and flip flops. Due to my issues with my feet I wear TEVA sandals that have good arch support. Not pretty or cute but comfortable.

I LOVE sandels! And of course down here we wear them for a much longer time because of our heat and humidity! :)

If I could, I would...wear flip flops year around. Like your selections.

Love you sense of shoes! My favorites are your Cleo's.

I'm lucky that we are allowed to wear them to work:)

I love sandals but like Linda I wear Murrells for my feet and support and they look a little healthy and not to sexy! But I know what you mean.

I don't like showing my feet to the world so I don't wear sandals anymore, although I do have lots of blinged out ones just like yours. :) Have a great day. Tammy

I sure do! But mine are very rugged and I love them. No bling, but sturdy and the most comfortable pair I have ever worn. Made by Keen. My daughters gave them to me 5 springs ago and they are still going strong. Kit

I love sandals but mine are more composed and sedate as becomes my age. HA! I do like my toes out in the summer heat and humidity.

I do love sandals. And have been told that what I wear as shoes are actually sandals :) Susan, thanks for sharing Simple Pleasures. New to me today - enjoyed joining in the fun. Joyce

I love wearing sandals, and I love bling! I think sparkle should be a summer requirement! It makes me smile!

Love, love your sandals! I'm a lover of sandals in warm weather, too ... being a Texan, our warm weather lasts a very long time. :)
