Jandals, Thongs, AND Flip Flops?!?





"Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world."
- Marilyn Monroe
I was searching for yet another fashion quote to start off this blog post and i came across these wise words of Marilyn Monroe. 
I'm a great lover of a any pair of heels (i'm not one to discriminate, wedges, boots or plan black stilettos, i love them all) and in most outfit posts i like to steal a pair of my sisters because they always make an outfit look that much better. Even though in fashion we believe in beauty not comfort, i couldnt help but reach for my jandals for an afternoon walk in the sun. 
I know, i deserve a slap on the wrist as punishment for going against the laws of high fashion! But on the streets of New Zealand, almost anything goes and our jandals are like a second skin for us!
So today i 'conquered the world' with the right kind of shoes just as Marilyn Monroe stated. 










 I paired my 'Roxy' jandals with my 'Glassons' bow belt and 'Valley Girl' maxi dress. I topped of the summery look with my sunglasses and my beloved vintage bag.

So do it like us Kiwi's and break out your jandals, or flip flops or thongs, whatever you call it in your home town!

  10. Such a lovely dress! This is something new for a blogger because we rarely use slippers or plain sandals because we usually wear heels. This is good! Very laidback not the usual painful heels!

  18. Lovely quote because it's so true. Shoes are so important...and I obviously have an obsession over shoes. I could try them on all day. I always go for heels over flats (even if it's a tiny heel), just because you feel so much better in them.
