Flip Flop Frenzy

CIMG1261We are far from surfers, but living in California, we are definitely flip flop people.  Brent wears them all year around...even when it rains.  I have had people tell me that they have never seen Brent wear shoes (which I assure you that he does…to work, to exercise, etc).  So as a result, we are having a flip flop wedding…CIMG1269We were in San Diego for a wedding and stopped by our favorite little sandal factory, the Rainbow Sandals Factory.  CIMG1260 They have all kinds of different styles and colors…and all with the Rainbow quality the sandals are known for.  The factory sells the sandals for about half the retail value as they each have small defects…so small no one would ever notice.  CIMG1268So as the bargain hunters that we are, we picked a pair up for each groomsman (and a pair for me…well, just because!).  CIMG1265 Are you a flip flop person?

  6. I wish I could get away with wearing flip flops year round like I used to. I'm pretty sure I would get frostbite if I did that in New York!

  7. I love flip flops! I only get to wear them a few months out of the year, because we get tons of snow here. Danggit.

  8. I wear flip flops just about every day in the summer, but when Fall comes around, it's back to my Fashionista shoes. ;) My sister just ordered a big box of flip flops and had them sent to ME for her wedding...guests are supposed to be able to take off their shoes and dance in flip flops if they want to. She wants me to make a box for them....

  10. I LOVE flip flops, and I've been to that outlet! I got my Rainbows a couple of years ago and they are great. Aside from a bit of fraying (from the dog chewing on them) they are still in great condition. I LIVE in flip flops whenever the weather allows, which is most of the time in SoCal.

    What a great idea to do a flip flop wedding!

  14. We are so flip flops people. When my husband and I were dating my grandpa used to ask my mom every single family dinner "Does the boy own a pair of shoes?"

    Are the Rainbow's any cheaper at the factory?

  16. I'm a flip flop gal now, but not for long. The part that goes between your toes used to bug me sooooo much and I'd get monster blisters...UNTIL...I found the magical pair that fit my tiny little feet perfectly. And now I will only wear that one brand, but they are el-cheapo so I can easily pick up a few for the year and not fret too much about it. Flip flops for the wedding! How fun?!

  17. How fun! Oh yes -- we are all flip flop people at our house!
