Goodbye winter, goodbye snow, goodbye that water that is constantly dripping from your nose when it’s cold and it’s not bugger. Hello and welcome sun, sunburns, short shorts and flip-flops. The best part of summer is the fact that you can finally take of all the ten layers that kept you warm throughout the winter and show some skin, even though that skin is white and soon it’s only going to get red. But it doesn’t matter; you can finally feel the sun on your skin. With lighter clothes come lighter responsibilities, and with warmer days, flip-flops begin to appear everywhere you look. And they should appear, because now is the perfect time to brush the dust off of them, and let your little piggies run wild.
There is nothing wrong about wearing flip-flops and almost everyone has at least one pair in their shoe cabinet. While there are some stylish and cool sandals and flip-flops out there, many are not as nice as they should be, and others are just something that should never have even been made. Also, even though it’s very hot and your feet will die if you put anything heavier than a feather on them, there are some occasions where it’s simply not tasteful to wear flip-flops. Observing the style of your slippers, the condition of your feet and the occasions you wear them to, people can actually say a lot about you.
Flip-flops are practical because they are easy to get in and out from. They are not practical for jogging, but for everyday life they are perfect. You can just jump in them and quickly go to the store. On the other hand, you can wear them to the beach, if you go for a walk and so on. This means that if you are wearing flip-flops, you are one very pragmatic. You deal with problems in a reasonable, sensible and logical way. If it’s too hot, wear less clothes – it’s easy as that. You take the easier road, which can be both good and bad. In some situations, it will be better to take the easy road and, in others, it can prove to be the wrong choice. If we take flip-flops for example, you can take the easy road and wear them on a walk through nature. It’s not common, but it makes you feel good. However, if you take the easy road and wear flip-flops on a fancy banquet the situation is a bit different. Wearing flip-flops in formal occasion says a lot about you, but none of it is positive. This means you lack in style, you are sloppy, and you can’t dress properly. Ultimately, this means that you are irresponsible and that you just don’t care about the way you look. If you don’t take yourself seriously, no one else will.
The most practical woman I’ve ever heard of has even had a pair of flip-flops in her oversized bag. No matter what she wore (except flip-flops, because you never need two pairs at the same time) she had an additional pair of flip-flops in her bag. They were nicely wrapped in a plastic bag so as to not make anything dirty, and they were always at her disposal. If she ever got too hot, or if there was any other situation that demanded a change of footwear, she could just put her hands in the bag, take out the flip-flops, put them on, and put the shoes she was wearing back in the bag. This is probably the most pragmatic woman I’ve ever met, and probably the only woman ever to have used a woman’s bag to its full potential.
I don’t know about you, but my first impression when you say flip-flops is relaxation, absence of stress, sitting in a shade overlooking the ocean. Many people actually connect these things to slippers, which means that they also connect them to you when you wear them. They will see you as carefree, easygoing person who likes to chill out from time to time. You will be perceived as someone who puts pleasure before work here and there. Some would even say that women who wear flip-flops are more liberal, and even more agreeable and more pleasant to have around.
The most important thing to do when you plan to wear flip-flops is to wash your feet. You should also have an overall bath from time to time, but in this case, feet are the most important part. Clip your nails and polish them so you don’t look like a fraternity guy, who has just awakened from his hibernation. You don’t want your feet to be telling people that you are dirty and that you just don’t care. Put fancy flip-flops on your fancy feet and the only thing they’ll be telling about you is how stylish you are.
