Ok, I have a confession - I've never truly understood slippers (until *now* - you knew this was coming right?!) I had several pairs growing up and I guess they were not comfortable or too bulky or something, because I just never "got" them.
So, I've survived for quite a few years without them! All this changed a couple of years ago when I had a gift card to spend at a local department store. Between sales and my card, I came out with a pair of slippers for 0.20 out of my pocket! They were black and sort of like clogs - they were pretty comfy, nothing amazing - but my view of slippers was improving.
Wearing this pair of slippers, I discovered something - how warm and cozy my feet stayed when it was cold! Now, it isn't really all that cold here at my house, but when it was damp and cold - these did the trick and if I wasn't wearing them on a cold day - my feet reminded me.
Several months ago - these slippers started falling apart and I was sort of on the hunt for a new pair. But, I made the others last a bit longer. I took them to Colorado and wore them all through Christmas and when we got home, I tossed them in the trash - my toes were poking out and the soles were falling off!
So far, I just really hadn't seen anything I wanted, liked, that fit, etc... Finally, last Saturday - while checking the sales at the same store where I found my first pair, I found the above pink fluffy slippers!
They were half off with an extra 50% off - yes, a very good deal as they were left from Christmas. They felt a bit snug in my size - but I like them and decided to give them a try.
Oh. my. These are the softest, fluffiest, warmest thing ever to touch my feet! I did not want to take them off! My feet were so warm and toasty even without socks! And, they are like walking on little pillows!
Later that same afternoon, I had to run out for another quick errand and I decided to run back in the store to see if they had another pair! Now, I'm all set with my cozy fluffy pair of pink girly slippers and have a second pair stashed in my closet for when I wear these out!
I'm sure it comes as no surprise that Emily and Rachel love these and Samuel giggles and grabs at the little pom balls on the tops!
So, if you stop by to see me sometime - just be forewarned that I may come to the door fully ready for the day with these cozy slippers on my feet.
How about you? Are you a slipper girl? Tell me all about how you keep your feet cozy! After all, isn't this one of life's little simple pleasures?
