Weekend Warrior: Say No to Flip Flops!

No Hippie Dinner Shoes by PaleontourWeekends are for expressing ourselves! Get casual, but stay stylish with Saturday's post for the weekend warrior in us all.

So you are traipsing around your home and perhaps even your flip flops?  You think, well they are leather, or wedged, or embellished with jewels so they are stylish enough for a Saturday.  If you think that, retrain your brain.  Flip flops are not OK unless you are in the shower at the gym, or wading in the shallow ocean.  Can you imagine Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Princess Kate, or [*insert your favorite style incon here*] strutting around in these unflattering, extremely un-stylish shoes?  Of course not.  If you have not already come to the realization, today is the day that you learn that flip flops are not for you.  (Photograph No Hippie Dinner Shoes, a photo by Paleontour on Flickr.)

Are flip flops the best that you can do?  Of course not!  There are countless stylish, comfortable and easy-to-wear alternatives.  Try these Report 'Grover' Flats available at Nordstrom.  Simple, stylish and affordable at $69.95.

If these shoes are not what you have in mind for Saturday errands, then go with a simple sandal like these BP. 'Falcon' Sandals for only $39.90, also available at Nordstrom.

If you'd prefer a little height (and are now mistakenly wearing chunky wedge, rubber flip flops) then give something like these DV by Dolce Vita Toni wedge espadrilles a try.  These are available for $44.99 at Piperlime.
