Ah, summer solstice, how I’ve been waiting for you! Now that we’ve had a week of true summer-like weather, there’s one place you’ll find me lounging all summer long: the beach. With a gorgeous, sunny forecast this weekend, let’s not talk about some great beach sandals that will take you from the sand to the boardwalk.
When I go to the beach, I have flip flops specifically for the sand, and while I’ve worn all kinds in the past, my favorite beach sandal is the good ol’ jelly flip-flop. Yes, these sandals may remind you of the sandals you wore playing dress-up as a kid, but I promise they make for great beachwear. In fact, the jelly sandal has become increasingly popular these last few seasons, and it no longer looks childish to wear a pair of jellies.
My advice, however, if you do choose to wear jelly flip flops or slides to the beach, is not keep them in direct sunlight. Either place them under your towel or throw them in your bag; otherwise, they’ll absorb the heat of the sun and make for an unpleasurable experience at the end of the day.
