A Day in My Shoes


Ruby Red Slippers 
 Check out My Shoes!  

This is just one of the several themed linkys through TBA's International Blog-Hopping Day Event.  This linky asks you to post your favorite pair of shoes and/or tell about a typical day in your shoes.  Here are my favorite shoes:

Flip Flops!

Okay, I know they're not the most fashion trendy or the most teacher appropriate, but they're comfortable!!  Another great feature is that you can get them in several colors!  I especially love the Old Navy brand because they're cheap!  I can even wear them to school as long as my attire is still dress casual!  This is helpful because it takes close to 8 minutes to walk from end to end of our building and that's a lot of walking every time you need to walk to the office!

Haha!  It's not that way everyday obviously.  I have had some trainings and things over the summer that have required me to get dressed, but recently because of the heat, I have only left the house to go workout!

  2. I love your summer schedule! Looks a lot like mine, although that "get dressed" step varies quite a bit!
