As I mentioned yesterday, I am VERY exited that spring has actually arrived. However, it has not quite been warm enough for the “flip flop” rule. My mom coined this phrase when I was in middle school to let me know whether or not it was warm enough outside to wear flip flops because I always wanted to pull out my Jack Rogers and Rainbows as soon as the snow melted. This rule was established with a minimum of 65 degrees for flip flops, or really any open toe shoe to be worn. Sadly, the ten day forecast does not show a single high above 63 for New York City so the flip flop rule will not quite be in effect.
My solution to warmer but not quite there yet footwear is a classic driving mock. When I went shopping with my mom a few years ago I was surprised that she and I both liked the same pair of shoes in the Geox outlet in Woodbury Commons (a truly magical place and something I will be sure to blog about in the coming months). Since I purchased these a few years ago and because they were from the outlet they are no longer available but here are some of my favorite colorful options for spring:
COLE HANN Trillby Driver
PATRICIA GREEEN Milly Driving Moccasins
Putting these collages together with Polyvore was almost painful, so many of these options are absolutely adorable I really had to restrain myself from purchasing them, especially the Pink Tourmaline Cole Hann’s or the Mint Sebagos.
Do you wear loafers? What are your in between shoes?
