brown flippies.jpgIt's turned into one of those days so hot and sticky that looking at anything but the most basic shoes is bringing me out in a sweat. I've thus spent quite some time browsing flip-flops, and in amongst the designer ones costing upwards of £100, I found this very basic brown pair, set off by a delicate pink flower by Aspiga.

Thong shoes, in my opinion, were never meant to get fancier than this. So let's embrace them for what they are: cool, basic and with just enough of a girly twist to flatter your feet. These ones are hand-made to last, too: £28.99 at Shudoo
