cute and comfy {not stinky!} flats to take me from summer to fall


Now that we’re in the final stretch of summer, I’m starting to steer away from my typical summer flip flop in favor of something that will take me into fall. Shoes I can wear farther than the pool deck but are still lightweight and comfortable. I have a few pair of cute late summer/fall flats, but here’s my problem with my flats.  Apologies in advance if this is TMI, but they all STINK!  I can wear them a few times {Read More}
