slippers in July + a GIVEAWAY

Yes, I live in Southern California and yes, my kids wear slippers all year long.

MEandREEKIE booties

There are a few reasons.

1. In the summer, we run the AC at night. Their feet get cold. Socks don't stay on. Slippers do.
2. I'm neurotic and am uncomfortable walking on tile or hard floors with bare feet. I've passed that on. (Yes, I'm saving up for therapy now.)
3. After baths and pjs but before bed, sometimes we hang out together on the back patio. I don't want Charlie to put his dirty flip flops back on. So his MEandREEKIE booties are clean, soft and go in the wash the next morning.

Which brings me to my FREE FREE FREE giveaway . . .

Almost 3 years ago, I ordered these MEandREEKIE booties for Charlie -

I think I saw them on another blog and thought they were adorable. Unique. Her shop tagline is "where funky meets function" and it's true.

After I received them, I realized they were well made, soft, and stayed on his feet. And my son can kick socks off some feet.

Last March, I ordered these for both Charlie and my nephew -

MEandREEKIE booties

They've been through the wringer. They have traveled to Big Sur, Santa Barbara and Michigan 3 times. They are worn inside and outside. Washed nearly every week and show absolutely no wear and tear.

A few weeks ago, the shop owner gave me these plum chenille booties for Alice. I'm in love.

My favorite thing about the weather being hot is that I don't have to fight with giant winter coats in the car seats!!

This are surely cute little slippers. Us born & raised Californian's don't wear slippers ever really, because it just isn't cold enough for that here. Therefore, I'd have to say the best part about the weather being warm is the fact that you can go barefoot! :)

Those are so cute. I love going to the beach and going into Lake Michigan. The summer heat eventually makes the lake water comfortable but refreshing! It makes the sand hot so you have to run to the water to cool your feet!

My niece would love those! My favorite part of the heat is being able to get in more beach time and relaxing in front of the AC with a good book :).
