Sliding into summer..better late never never!

By | Outfits, Personal, Shoes | No Comments

Now this is a summer 2017 trend I can appreciate! Pool slides were seriously popular when I was a teenager back in the 1990’s. I was kind of excited when I began noticing that this style was on trend this summer. For years I have been wearing mostly thong and t-strap style sandals so it was great timing to switch things up. I do love slides but typically they don’t come in many feminine styles, when I tried these on at the Nike Orlando outlet I was in love! Not only are they comfortable but they are so girly and cute I had to have them!  One thing I won’t be jumping aboard the trend train anytime soon on: furry-slipper slides…NOPE My style pictured: NIKE BENASSI ULTRA PREMIUM   +++NOT SPONSORED+++ I wear and buy what I like with my own money 🙂
