When you talk summer essentials pretty patterned rubber flip flops are on the top of my list. Especially designer ones! The Tory Burch Flip Flops with rubber soles have the signature Tory logo in gold or silver. These are a total must for me for Mom fashionistas who like designer brands.
These are comfortable and look fab with a bathing suit or a pair of shorts & a tee. They come in a wide variety of patterns & colors and are pretty much available in any department store as well as at Tory Burch. Check them out at Nordstrom.com too for free shipping both ways, which is always a plus in my book. Priced at $50.
