Freckles in April: Unconventional

Unconventional

Wearing clouds tunic (by me) tucked in, Macy's skirt, F21 bracelets, Kohl's slippers


I'm going to let you in on one of my dirty little secrets.

I frequently wear slippers in public.

I'm not talking about Hawaiian slippers which are actually flip flops (that's a hotly contended terminology issue in our household) but actual bedroom slippers. Kohl's sometimes carries these slippers that look like really cute felty flats and I wear them like shoes. I've done this for years. The bottoms don't hold up real well, as you might imagine, but they still somehow manage to last longer than some of my other shoes. Plus they don't beat the snot out of my feet like most flats.

I know this is a totally lame idea for this prompt but my original picture (which involved a swimsuit!) got corrupted somehow (so weird..only time it has ever happened) and I had to improvise at the last minute.

Link up your outfits below! And don't forget to visit the lovely ladies in the Flickr group.

  2. Awesome. If you ever sell that tunic...

    and I'm going to need to look into these slippers because my Hawaiians are getting a little old.

  3. My little secret...my blinged out black flats are "officially" slippers, too. But they are warm and cushy inside and that bling needs to be shown. It's all good, you can't kill your feet everyday.

  4. I have black flats slippers in my car. Just in case. I don't know how many times my shoes have hurt so bad that I ended up buying flip flops just so I could get home!

  5. Yup. Me too! Only mine are the Minnetonka mocs with the fur inside.

  6. Interesting... All of my slippers are actual house slippers with fluffy things and stuff, but I'm all for comfy shoes, so maybe I should check out these slippers then.

  10. It's like you stumbled on a little Orthodox secret, because believe it or not, I actually know several women who have these slippers and wear them as flats. Orthodox Christian church services are pretty long, and we stand most or even all of the time so comfortable shoes are a must.

    I'm really curious about what you did with the swimsuit, too. My outfit involved swimwear today, as well. Bummer about the photo.
