The great flip flop debate is over!

The results are in! By an overwhelming margin, according to our only-a-little-bit-scientific month-long poll, flip-flops were deemed inappropriate for the workplace. I have to admit, as much as I love my Havaianas, I don’t wear them in the office. So, what’s a girl to do?

A couple of great options I found offer the cushy comfort of your best beach shoes, but are stylish enough to pass the “office test.” They also have what I call the “sherbet factor.” Don’t you always buy summer sandals in delicious colors that would look plain old goofy in any other type of shoe?

My faves include: “Dainty” by Dolce Vita. Only $50, in white. Extremely practical. These will go with everything in my closet – from shorts to sundresses. Comfortable enough to wear all day and stylish enough to wear with a pair of capris on a Dress Down Friday.

“Whip Gloss” by Kenneth Cole. An unbelievable $60. Slides are always so easy. A kitten heel makes them ladylike for the office, but hot with a little dress for the weekend. “Lorel” by Kate Spade. I love, love, love this shoe. It’s got everything a summer shoe needs – color, style and of course, whimsy.

At $191, this is over half off! “Gucci thong” in lilac. Mmmmm… A little out of my price range at $284, but so yummy, I would certainly be tempted.

These great finds are all available at They are having a special One Day Only Shoe Sale today, with an amazing up to 65% off, including sandals.

Guess where I’m headed once this is posted?
