I’m pretty sure knee-high gladiator lace ups are the ultimate summer sandals. Yes, flip flops are great, but they say “I went the easy thoughtless route.” They also do nothing for your legs. (And when it’s warm out, you should be showing them off and making them look as good as possible.) Now, having to spend 5+ minutes in the morning to adjust your laces to be symmetrical and perfectly tight… that shows true dedication to properly accentuating your shins.
Excuse the no-nail polish – I’m going sans pedicure to let my nails breathe a bit before summer/non-stop sandal season hits!
