Running across the pool deck to stop the five year old from jumping in fully clothed for the 8th time today – no problem, no slipping, and still styling. RHEA’s fancy flip flops. Booting it across the gravel driveway before your daughter wipes out on her skateboard ramp? Fear not superhero mama, RHEA has your back with their patented micro channel treads. Cool to look at and even more cool knowing you won’t wipeout wearing these. RHEA was founded by Cornell students who were slipping and sliding all over Ithaca New York – have you been there? It is really cold, wet and slippery up there! Microtread Griptech soles are what make RHEA flip flops so unbelievably fantastic – you cannot slip on these. RHEA is named after the Greek Goddess of Comfort, and they are cute too! The scientific technology that is built into the soles and treads are what make them fancy, not to mention the rainbow assortment of sole colors options. Brilliant yellow, gorgeous black and gold, spumoni green, patent white, single or double strap – whatever outfit you are trying to compliment RHEA flip flops have it. The really great thing about buying a pair of RHEA flip flops right now is that you are supporting this start-up AND saving some money! The shoes are available exclusively on Kickstarter.com. Go shop and stop wiping out! **full disclosure – please note that reversecommuter received a sample pair of RHEA flip flops but was not paid for this review, nor for the numerous times worn since!**
The boyfriend cut is BIG this spring!
Distressed, sloppy, sexy jeans – nothing better. J Brand’s distressed Sonny is reversecommuter’s current LIVE IN choice.
Dress it up with heels and a silk top or down with a t-shirt and a leather biker jacket and ankle boots. Once it really warms up this style of jean BEGS for a tank tops and flip flops – perfect patio wear. Acne’s POP Light Vintage screams summer nights – why not start warming up now?
Want to cheat on your boyfriend (jeans)? MOTHER Denim’s The Overall Dropout (best name ever!!!!) allows you this extra curricular item.
One thing in common with all 5 of these choices – can be rolled up in a ball then shaken out, add havianas or a stellar pair of Loubies, wear with children and still manage to be all put together!
1. Rick Owens
reversecommuter found this dress and immediately bought it in 2 different colors. Draped, bias cut and absolutely rollable.
the queen of romp herself would approve of this choice – repeat after me, I can never go wrong packing a wrap dress.
3. James Perse
Californian king of t-shirts just grab one of his long tank dresses or rushed mid-length dresses and go!
this classic sheer paneled dress comes in light and dark colors and even in a shirt silhouette, clearly recognizing a good thing can come in different shapes & sizes.
the Italian design house that creates tapestry like no other can dream without hallucinogenic assistance once again proves that a combo cover-up / fabulous evening dress makes for a lighter suitcase…all the better to fill up at the duty free!
Sundress, flip flops, sunglasses, sun kissed. Happiness. Done and Done. James Perse is the master of cotton dress deliciousness. Well worth the investment as his dresses last – just keep them out of the dreaded dryer! Not to mention mommy friendly fashion – wake up, shower, put on sundress, GO!
James Perse online is currently hosting a sample sale – CLICK HERE!!!!! Not only can you stock up on sundressses, you also start to plan your attack on Fall 2014. Apologies on mentioning the impending cooler weather. Now back to the beach and P.S. is that yellow beach buggy not just THE BEST??!?!?!?
Nope, not a typo. And not a blog posting on milfs either… just a mommyblogger’s love of fashion and the necessity for fashion to fit life.
As in Daisy Dukes that aren’t quite too short, but still qualify 🙂 Mamas need to bend over ALL the time! Click here to find a great on sale selection at Rag & Bone.
Gotta go get it and the wilting veggies home…
Phew, I made it!
Sundress by James Perse, (click here to go play in the land of all things James Perse – one of my faves!!), flops from Haviana and sunnies by Chanel.
Luckily there is no height minimum on either of these AMAZING booties! Good news if you happen to be in the market for a new pair of fab fall ankle boots!
First up is Costume National’s Ziggy ankle zip boot in suede (click here to go right to Bloomie’s & buy them)
Alexander Wang’s Anouk Boot is BEYOND!!!!!!!!!! I mean really…did you look at that heel?!?! (click here to visit Opening Ceremony to purchase said fabulousness)
Summer allows for no-brainers in the morning. Take my outfit for example. Dress on, hair back, flops & done!
But the price tag of $70 for a pair of flip flops…luke warm at best.
But for now I am happy with my $20.00 flops – that way there are no tears when the inevitable blowout happens.
