I've made a promise to myself that I will not live all summer in flip flops. I even bought myself some really cute, kinda expensive platform wedges to make sure this didn't happen. However, if I was going to live in a pair of flip flops, it would be these Sanuk Yoga Mat Sandals. They are a friend to your feet when no one else will be. You really should have at least have one pair. (I just nabbed myself those turquoise cuties) And yes they are made from real yoga mat! HEAVEN!
