Something New

You may have noticed I've been wearing espadrilles a lot this summer, but the other go-to type of shoe for hot weather is certainly a humble flip-flop. But not just any old flip-flop...it has to be Havaianas. I fell in love with them when I visited Brazil for the first time more than a decade ago and they have been a summer staple ever since. They are super comfortable (unlike the plastic flip flops), they do not lose their shape as they're made of natural rubber and they come in huge array of colours and designs. They are truly the best flip-flops out there. No other brand comes close.
I have a huge collection of them already, but I'm always happy to get more. My newest dotty Slim Fresh Flip Flop addition was sent to me by kind folks at www.surfdome.com . You can see more of their collection HERE including some super cute kids Havaianas complete with Disney characters and back strap for more stability for little ones.

The next thing is a gift from myself to myself by Ottoman Hands, a London based brand producing jewellery pieces in Turkey using traditional methods. I just love the rougher unpolished finish on this ring and think it will go nicely with quite a lot of outfits.

Last but not least, I bought some tracksuit bottoms. You know, for lounging around the house....erm...and possibly for mixing it up with some heels and going out dressed like that if I dare.

Slazem se sa svakom napisanom rijecju vezano za Havaianas japanke... ne postoje bolje i kvalitetnije :-) Iako, kod nas su sad dosta popularne Ipanema ( koje meni nikako ne sjedaju) te se dosta se smanjio broj ducana koji drze Havaianasice pa mi je uvijek misija pronaci neke grly poput tvojih!:-)

You can certainly tell the difference between real Havaianas and the cheaper alternatives. I went to a Havaianas shop last year in Portugal and the selection was mind boggling and I came out with ta dah ..... a brown pair. Gosh I am so boring. I'm hoping to upgrade to a pair of silver and a pair of gold ones at some point to replace the cheapy ones I have which I know I wear a lot.

Can't wait to see you funk it up in some joggy bots. I have tried so many pairs - still not found that perfect pair.

it's so hard to find comfy flip flops so you were super lucky! I myself have only one pair because I just don't kind of trust them, haha. I also love the ring, btw.
