Reef

 The following is a sponsored post written by Reef and designed by A Very Sweet Blog.


Summer is coming to a close, but in most of the U.S., there are still several weeks remaining of pleasant temperatures, dewy mornings, trips to the lake, sunbathing by the pool, and puttering around the garden. Citronella-scented evening BBQ's. Raucous concerts on the lawn. Cool walks after a summer thunderstorm. The powdered-sugar delights of a street fair. There might even be a few late-summer weddings, maybe on a sandy beach at sunrise.

What do all these disparate experiences of summer have in common? Flip-flops!


Flip-flops are the ultimate summer footwear. There is nothing more satisfying as that first day in spring warm enough to wear flip-flops for that trip to the grocery store or post office. There's nothing quite so freeing as walking across a well-trimmed lawn, wet from the sprinkler, in your trusty flip-flops. Nothing is as satisfying as slipping on your flip-flops for that walk to the lounge chair, wearing a sun hat and carrying a dubious novel. No better way to show off those carefully pedicured toes. Sundresses and shorts are merely half as comfortable if you're not wearing flip-flops. Feet hot? Dunk em' in the pool and slip your flip-flops back on for that walk across the hot concrete. Flip-flops combine the pleasure of going barefoot with the freedom to walk wherever you like.


Flip-flops are essential for experiencing summer, and it doesn't matter if you are young, slightly less young (heh), man, woman, boy or girl, you can find a pair that will look fabulous and feel great on you. Whatever you do, don't skimp on your flip-flops. There are few things more painful than the way drugstore flip-flops will cut into your foot, and they'll break at the least convenient moment anyway. Flip-flops are a footwear of which anyone can afford the best. Reef carries an enormous variety of high-quality, high-style flip-flops and sandals for anyone, priced scarcely more than the gas-station toe-cutters. Suitable for the most adventurous kid at camp, the sweetest beachside wedding, a trip to the pool, a walk in the garden, and everywhere in between. Casual, comfortable, chic flip-flops are summer.

I think a good pair of fit flops are a holiday essential! They have to be comfy though - nothing worse than when they chafe between your toes!

I completely agree that a pair of Fit Flops are very essential for travelling! I always use it and love it <3

These look pretty cool and I wish I lived close to a beach where summer never ends - somehow wearing flip flops in London isn't quite the same. Having said that, anybody trying to take my Birkenstocks away from me will be in deep trouble ;-) xo

Hi Kim! I love to wear flip flops in summer, I think they are a must have! These ones are so cute, my fav are the first pair!:) Kisses dear, have a good day! xo

Summer has definitely left Paris - and earlier than expected. We've been back in our jeans and sweaters this week! However, I'll be flying to the US in a few days and the forecast for the city where I'm landing is in the 90s... This most makes me wish I had a pair of flip flops in my wardrobe for those temperatures!
xox,
Cee

Gorgeous photos and sweet flip flops! I love the diversity of styles displayed. I have been toying with the purchase of a nicer pair I can sport to the salon, relax on the patio with and wear about town while running errands... :) Will definitely check Reef out! xo T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Mica T said...

Oh I definitely see flip flops as a summer essential! And for as long into winter as I can keep wearing them, haha!

IYL said...

Love the pretty flip-flops! I myself have difficulty wearing flip-flops because it just feels weird to have something between your toes. But I would love to rock these!

Never hear of reef. Interesting and I can use them all year round.

I have tons of their shoes!

These Reef flip flops look a lot better than your average thongs (in Australia we call them thongs). Our warm weather is only just beginning, and as hard as I try and resist, I spend most of my Summer in thongs. I'm going to go to the Reef website and see if I can get me some of theirs, and I'm not just saying that :D. I want some with the blue straps, and some with the heels!

I agree...there's nothing that makes me feel more summery than flip flops. I've never heard of this brand, so I'll check it out:)
Happy Hump Day, Kim!

Keki Doll said...

Lovely post! Love the surfer pics! Would love to go on holiday now and wear these sandals :) I really like the ones with heels, they look comfy to wear.

Nails My Dreams said...

I live in a tropical country so flip-flops are a must. It's all about comfort and fit. Hihi. I usually wear the ones with heels but I want to try those with leopard/zebra prints on them too. lol. Rawr.

Flip flops really are great for summer. I really like that all the employees are given paid time off to give back to the community as well - it sounds like a fab company!

I miss flip flops being over here in Dublin! Looking forward to having the weather to wear them again! :)

I might be the only person in the world who doesn't own a pair of flip flops. I just don't find them comfortable and I feel like my feet are dirty after wearing them.

I see alot of cute styles. I just can't wear them. It's nice that companies like Reef are committed to being so eco conscious.

Living at the beach, I live in flip flops! Otherwise you burn your feet on the hot sand and that's no fun.

Flip flops are a holiday essential....I keep wearing mine around the house until it gets really cold and then the comfy slippers appear!

Sara Gerard said...

These seem really cool! I always get the cheap $2 ones, I think I will have to invest in some quality flip-flops like these!

Reefs is one of my favorite flip flop brands. I love wearing mine to the beach - the traction is really good compared to others. Great post! xx Kat

Oh this makes me miss home soooo bad! I actually have two pairs of Reef flip flops that I've had since college. In fact, now that I think about it I think I've had one pair since high school! They're the best! I wish I had an excuse to get more but my time to wear them is just so short in Utah. They have some cute styles though.

Sam said...

Ohhh these are so cute and look super comfy to laze around in all day! I need the leopard print ones.

Coco said...

Reef is such a cool brand! Great feature Kimmie!
