Blog Design GiveAWAY!!!!!

Don't you hate it when bloggers don't update their blogs? Gawd I hate that..........I mean why even have a blog if you're not going to keep it filled with exciting happenings for everyone to drool over.
Guilty........I've been a horrible blogger! Horrible! But the good thing about my blog is that I have over 400 back posts you can browse through for hours of inspiration. So give me a break.......training a puppy is hard work........it's taking my blog time........she better get this potty thing down so I can continue bringing inspiration to you on a more regular basis.

How about if I make it up to you with another give away? I had a few planned for my April Blogiversary.....well here is it the last week of April and I'm still not finished.

How about a FREE BLOG DESIGN GIVEAWAY!!!!!Danielle from THE DESIGN GIRL is one of those darling designers that has talent oozing out her finger tips. She is somewhat of a partner to TCB, she's one of our designers we refer people too for our smaller 100x100 button.
She has designed so many blogs! She has agreed to give away one of her GRAND blog packages! (value $120) Thank you Danielle........you ROCK!

This is big people.......I mean who doesn't want a new blog design. I need one for my personal site......have you been over there? Snoozeville.......but I suppose when you're as saucy of a writer as me, it can be plain right? ............... No? These are just a few header designs she's done.Since she's giving away a blog design, I would LOVE to show you her latest projects. She's designing stationary. I would SO love to possess this talent. I think I really should become a graphic designer.......I know I'd be good.......because I would just copy people like Danielle. :)This bird one of my fav! Sweet.......sweet peas..........For those of you who want to do it yourself........blog designing that is.......she has a few tutorials on her blog. Love that. Because sometimes I'm just too embarrassed to ask a simple question....it looks like I know what I'm doing because TCB is all purdy......thanks to Shannon......but in reality.......I know nothing. OK.........You have until Thursday at 5pm to leave me a comment. Tell me what kind of sandals or summer shoes I need to buy. (remember I am a very casual kind of girl who wears Nikes every day.......I wore crocks for cryin out loud, so obviously I need help.......make them comfortable!)

how fun!!!

and seriously...
you just need an awesome pair of old navy flip flops.
$2.50 the best flip flops on the planet.

Shanna said...

My blog is in some desperate need of a makeover!

I love the little Sketchers I bought last year- similar to a sneaker, but they are much, much smaller, and hug your foot with some of those cute criss-cross bands on them. I need some new ones for this year!

Forsythe said...

I will always swear by Rainbow leather sandals. I grew up in Southern California and always had a pair. I have comverted my husband to them and we wear the comfy durable sandals year round. http://www.rainbowsandals.net/

Karli said...

Reef Sandals! They last forever and they are soooo cute these days!!!

Jcbaron99 said...

My favorite sandals are my Keens for outdoorsy play at the park, do a hike days. Then I LOVE my Dansko sandals (for when I want to act like I care what I look like!). SO comfy and worth the $$. Then of course you might just do flip flops in fun colors from Old Navy - love those to slip on when I'm heading out the door.

Kiwi said...

Reefs. I wear them all summer long.

Miss Anne said...

Sorry about your puppy training duty.. it's not fun, eh?

Consistency and often are the key!

As for my summer footwear of choice??

REEF's!

They're by FAR the best sandal around. I was just in Hawaii and picked myself up a pair and they're my new favs!

http://www.reef.com/girls/products/girls/footwear/sandals/null/1

seriously... prepare to fall in ♥!

and thanks for the entry in your drawing!

Skipping Through Daisies said...

Old Navy flip-flops without a doubt. I usually buy 5-6 pairs in different fun colors. I've had a brown pair that have lasted me 5 years. They fit perfectly to my feet :)

Astrid said...

Awesome giveaway!

On to sandals...I'm so freaking clueless. I hate flip flops. I'm on the look out for a cute pair as well...so I'll be looking at what others recommend!

just jen said...

just get more crocs...i live in mine!

Cynthia said...

I think you should check out this blog... http://community.livejournal.com/feetwantout/

It has a lot of great info =)

girlsmama said...

Birkenstocks, there is nothing better. Betula by Birkenstock are just as good and half the price. Now about that blog makeover...

Kathie said...

You need a pair of these North Face sandals. They are water proof, super comfortable and I think they look fine (divas and super girlie-girls would disagree though). Here's the discription:
(I got them from Zappos, but I would just do a google search for them or look on ebay):

An ultra-cushioned water-friendly sandal.Water-resistant synthetic nubuck upper.Removable heel strap easily converts the sandal to a slide.A water based outsole compound that increases traction on trails and during everyday use.

Juanita said...

I'd have to agree with several here- I love Reef sandals! They're the most comfy! Why not be comforitable and stylish?

I'd love a blog makeover!

Living With Lindsay said...

Girl, get yourself some Croc flip flops. I seriously wear them every single day of my life. They aren't ugly like regular Crocs, but they are just a comfy!

Trinity Baptist Church said...

I think this pair at Kohls is adorable: http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/crosssells/shoes/sandalsflipflops/womens/PRD~446508/Croft++Barrow+Hepburn+Sandals.jsp

I would love to win the blog makeover!

lizzie said...

oooooo what a great giveaway!

Megs said...

Is it sad that I was maybe going to recommend crocs? I love them and this give away.

nicoleheartspaper said...

I totally need a make-over!

Christine said...

I recommend - Birkenstock's Gizeh - It's the most comfortable summer thong out there imho. :)

Nancy Sabina said...

All I know about sandals is that this new "gladiator" style is hideous! (no matter what the designers say) Don't do it! Personally, I'm a fan of Target flip flops. Nice embellishment on a regular flip flop.

cb9094 said...

No Crocs Please!! Stick to the "Yellow Box" (http://www.flipflopstyle.com/yeboxshne.html) flip flops...too cute! Or if comfort is really your thing...check out Dr. Scholl's (http://www.drschollsshoes.com/), they have come a long way!

XOXO-
www.beachbrights.blogspot.com

Kara said...

Oh man, this is a great giveaway. My blog(s) totally need a make-over!

I am not much help with sandals. I've never actually found a pair I love. I know, I'm pathetic. I will be checking all the comments to see what everyone else recommends.

Shawna said...

My blog really needs a makeover. I would pee my pants it I won!!!!

I'm a flip flop girl. Love flip flops, can't go wrong with a cheap pair from old navy!

Emily said...

So excited about this giveaway!

I love payless shoes flip flops..

Kim - said...

oooh, girls you are giving me so many choices......but I am not sure about anything between my toes. Maybe this is the year I try. I loved my birkenstocks way back when......and Keens.....now that may be an option. Remember, I teach fitness classes, drive a hybrid, live in the NW, run after a 10 yr boy and a 4 mo old puppy and sit on my butt writing a blog.....being a girly girl diva has never been a priority......
Keep em coming ladies!

Jill said...

Ever since I started blogging I have used Danielle from The Design Girl for my blog designs. She is FABULOUS. You won't be disappointed if you have Danielle design your blog. And how about that stationery... Adorable!

Amy said...

I definitely say give Reef's a try- I have some that have a little thicker of a strap and it didn't take me any getting use to having that between my toes. Maybe it will for you- but they are soooo comfy they're worth a shot.

You could always go back to jelly shoes! :) Those are probably coming back in style, right?!

Britney said...

Seriously one of these day I'm going to win something! This would be such a fun win...a blog makeover would be the best!

As far as what to buy. I'm a Reef girl too. Super comfy and very stylin'.

Thanks so much!

Claire said...

Reefs or Flojos. Preferably NOT those awful gladiator sandals everyone is wearing these days. Sheesh.

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

Oh yes, enter me I need a blog makeover!

Heather said...

Let's get real! my blog is hatin' it! I have no idea how to design something cute to save my life! So... you have no choice but to feel sorry for me and pick me....PLEASE!!!

now, on to shoes, I love love love sandals and a great pair of flip flops last me all summer long- I live in San Diego for Heat's sake! :0)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

So if you don't already wear the black mary jane style crocs, get some! I have been with my sister three different times when she was wearing them and received compliments! And she says they're comfy and they look cute (and I thought before that crocs should be worn in public).

Lee said...

For everyday, I'm happy with my Nike or Reebok flip flops - they fit nice with great arch support which is nice when you're in them all day all summer long. The "dressy" shoes I have are my "Fit Flops" (from the UK) and I love my Merrill sandals. Again, dressy-ish but so comfortable!

Chrissie said...

My blog is seriously in need of a facelift. We're moving to a new house next month, so why not a new blog makeover, too?

As for sandals -- LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Reefs!

{Amy} said...

Totally one of those girls who never changes her blog... :(

Get some sandals! I'm a pretty cheap kind of gal, so head to Kohl's and check out their sandals! :)

the BLAH BLAH BLAHger said...

You need Rainbows...the most comfortable flips in the world!

WishTrish said...

How about some nice Chacos? (http://www.zappos.com/product/7222239/color/102074)

I sooooo need a makeover. My poor blog has been just plain black since I started over a year ago. So neglected.

Mandy said...

I so need this makeover -- really, I only have one post under my belt b/c I keep messing with the background! Help!

Shoes: I love cheep flip flops from target or old navy. But my tiva's are super comfy too. And Sketchers has a sandal (Kiwi?) that is cute and looks comfortable.

Heather said...

i like the croc flops, though i wish they camme in tamer colors. though on a blog...especially one being made over...there is no need for tameness!!

Jessica said...

stick with the crocks baby- I'll be wearing them all summer! I desperately need a blog (and shoe) makeover!

Andrea said...

Flip flops all the way baby!

:)

Or flats. Yummy flats.

Julia said...

I am a total sneaker/comfy-shoe kinda person too... these are my absolute FAVORITE pair of shoes to wear!!! you totally need to get them! so comfy and you can wear them with just about anything!!

Melissa said...

I love Old Navy flip flops, they are cheap and you can get them in every color!!

I desperately need a new blog design!

Vintage Dutch Girl said...

OK, it's been said, like, 18 million times already, but yes, OLD NAVY FLIP FLOPS!! And so cheap, you can own them in every color and not feel guilty :)

AngMomof3 said...

Old Navy flip flops. One pair in every color. Easy, comfy, cheap!

Hulls Clan said...

ooohhh, i'm new to your blog and you are already speakin' my language...new blog design and SHOES:) casual girl here and i have been a recovering croc addict but have recently discovered croc flip flops...with fabric between the toes so it's nice and comfy. great for the beach or your fav summer number for church! have fun shoe shopping. btw, you can never go wrong with some summer style keens...pricey but worth every penny!

The Fletchers said...

I love my birkenstocks! They are a bit pricey but I have had mine for years and they just keep getting better!!! Hope you find something you love!

DabneyFletcher@gmail.com

Natalie said...

Ohh, I need a makeover so bad! I've barely been posting b/c it just looks so boring to me!

Anywho... I live in these Sketchers sandals! So comfy, just a tad of color and super easy to clean! Good luck on your search!

Gotta be Birkenstocks. Betula are great & not as expensive as the other Birkenstocks.

Katrina said...

J.Crew always has comfortable sandals! Also Old Navy-- you can't really beat their prices either.

Sarah said...

Reef flip flops all the way! They come in different styles and really cute, fun colors. They mold to your feet after a while and are super comfy. Take it from a Florida girl who wears nothing but flip flops for most of the year.
Sarah

Mandaleighta said...

I say go for Teva sandals..some are rugged looking, but they have plenty of super-cute styles and they are darn comfy, too!

Linda said...

The Crocs Cleo sandal are seriously the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn----EVER! And they have come out with a bunch of cute colors, too! I like flip flops, but these stay on my feet better and don't have that thing between your toes!

Candy Graber said...

I need a blog makeover in the worst way!

As far as shoes, I would go with flip flops all the way!

MDiskin said...

I like the Dauphine patent t-straps from JCrew!

Evidence of an Artistic Life said...

My blog is in dire need of help-I can't figure out how to change anything!!! And I am puppy training, too-a very large 65 pound puppy. We are housebroken and crate trained-we just learn how not to drag Mom on a leash!!! We have done Puppy 101 classes-we need to redo!

Katie said...

Step one: Buy Old Navy Flip Flops for 2.50.

Step Two: Line then with cotton.

Step Three: Wear. (But not in the tain)

Empty Nest Full Life said...

You need reef or teva flip flops. The cheap flip flops will ruin your feet. Take it from someone w/ experience. There are so many different styles to choose from you will want several pair. Jackie

Becky said...

I would have to say either Old Navy flip flops or the Croc flip flops! I <3 my Crock Flip Flops!

Holly said...

I'm so "flippin" casual that I don't even enjoy shoe shopping. That being said, I do not like ugly shoes. I bought one pair of sandals last summer and spent enough money for the great quality that they will last me at least one more summer. I wear them EVERYDAY in the summer months and reccomend them highly to you. The brand is NAOT...made in Israel. They are great "Jerusalem Cruisers". BTW- I too am from the Pacific Northwest and these sandals fit the bill of a NW gal.

Heather said...

Kim! You have to (HAVE TO) try Chacos. They are amazing. They are like Tevas, but the strap that holds your feet in? It's one strap, so you can adjust the shoes perfectly to your feet. I spent about $90 on mine three years ago, and have the same pair. What is also nice is that you can send the shoes in to get re-strapped or re-soled so you could, in theory, keep them forver.

Also, I would love a redesign!

Megan @ Hold it Up to the Light said...

Well, Danielle has already given me an unbelievable blog makeover recently (it is amazingly amazing with 3 alternating headers....and the big plus is how wonderful she is to work with)!

I am about to buy a makeover for a friend though....my best friend who is moving far away :(

I would love to win one for her! And, in honor of her....I recommend Versatiles. They may be too dressy for you, but they are surprisingly comfy!

Leslee said...

Ohhh my blog needs a makeover!!!

Cant go wrong w/old navy flip flops!!!

Kim Evans Pigue said...

Oh I need a blog makeover so BAD!!!
I also vote for Croc's or the Old Navy flip flops in bright summer colors!

mary elizabeth said...

my bloggy def needs a makeover!

i'm a sandals girl, myself. i live in them. even in the winter. and i live in utah. my favs are flip flops from american eagle!

Amanda and Jonathan Brantley said...

I was a die-hard croc flip flop wearer...until last week. I had my first baby shower (I'm 25 weeks) and my dear friend gave me a pair of YELLOWBOX flip flops.
She swore by them when she was preggo, and I've become a huge fan. They are delicious feeling, and lighter than crocs. Plus they have the cutest strap designs. I'm buying my MIL some for mother's day!

Sharmaine said...

No idea but make them red, I think red shoes are cool!!!!

Tina Ryan said...

Oh this is easy! I LOVE Cole Haan shoes with Nike technology. These are awesome http://www.colehaan.com/colehaan/catalog/product.jsp?productId=238988&categoryId=321301&productGroup=239017

Now I hope I win because I need a new design as much as you need new sandals! lol

BeeHappy said...

I'd love a blog make over :)

http://www.naot.com/ - best summer shoes I've ever owned. Yes they are expensive but they are fantastic for your feet. I used to sell shoes. And when the inside gets gross, you can get a new one instead of buying a brand new shoe. Sweet huh! :)

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

My blog needs a little something something! Well, more than just a little!

My favorite shoes are my keen sandals. They cover my big toe, love that with little ones around. They're for hiking, but they're so comfy, I wear them everyday during the summer for the past 4 summers!

Dawn said...

I'm with Rachel on this one!! Old Navy Filp Flops..and at their price you can get a pair in every color!! Great giveaway...thanks!!

Ann said...

Oh, yeah, I could TOTALLY use a blog makeover!

Hmm...what kind of shoes? I always buy several pairs of cheap-o flip flops from Target...they actually have some really cute ones with beads and such. I can wear them all summer, then throw them away guilt-free 'cause they were cheap to begin with! ;)

growthstylenlove said...

Take a look at these . .

http://www.naturalizer.com/Shopping/ProductDetails.aspx?p=EC0217397&pg=3005017

Strappy, flat, $50, and T straps are so in right now!

Pick me! Pick me! LOL =D

growthstylenlove said...

Yay!!! Shopng is my favorite! Ok, so don't kill me when I tell you this but Naturalizer has really come up in the world! They are not old lady shoes any more. So there are these flat strappy little T strap shoes that come in bronze and silver $50.

http://www.naturalizer.com/Shopping/ProductDetails.aspx?p=EC0217397&pg=3005017

Jessica said...

Oh my blog needs a makeover BAD!! I think a new blog design would inspire me to blog more ;)

The only flip flops I wear in the summer are Old Navy flip flops. At $2.50 A PAIR you can buy one in every color (like I do every year...) and still have $$ left over. You cant go wrong!!

Jaime said...

I too love the flops from O.N. but I just bought a cute pair of gold sandals from payless! Gold is in right now and it will go with most everything!! (and I love a bargain.It is BOGO right now)

OH, I hope I win...I would love a blog make-over!!!!

Southern Gal said...

Rainbows, Keens or those nifty newer styles of Crocs.

I don't own any of these, but my daughter does.

I'm like you cheap flip flops or a nice pair that I wear until they fall apart.

I've got to go get some new sandals now...

Jamie said...

My absolute favorite sandals are Reef flip flops (Ginger).
Like these:
http://www.amazon.com/REEF-Ginger-Womens-Sandals-Black/dp/B001QJN394/ref=pd_bbs_2?ie=UTF8&s=shoes&qid=1240975956&sr=8-2

I love these. They are way more comfortable than other sandals, too.

Chare said...

I would have to say Keen's. I live in my flip-flops though. Don't even put them away during the winter. I did end up buying a pair of winter shoes this year, just to prove that I am a grown-up! Bought a pair of Keen's and love them!!! Might even give up my flip-flops, then again maybe not...

wenbren explains it all said...

I have some sketcher sandals that are black and so comfortable like stepping on cushions:)

Amanda said...

REEFS are the best and most comfortable flip-flops around!!! They last forever and there are so many cute designs. Love them!!!

I would also LOVE a blog makeover! :)

JJ said...

I was just surfing the internet looking for help to update my blog layout!!! This is the perfect giveaway...so, sandals, huh?..I love my rainbow sandals. They are comfy and last forever!

Mrs. Jones said...

Cute flip flops, girl. That's all you need.

I could use a real cute blog makeover!

(I am soooo over puppies. I just finished housebreaking my 2nd, and I don't think I ever want a puppy again! There's a reason God made them too cute to beat.)

~Heather

Tozz said...

My most favourite shoes for summer are Maseur Shoes as they are shaped on the sole and massage your foot as you walk and so are really good for your blood circulation and keeps things going good. They come in Tan, White and Black and look great too..heres the webpage so you can see them. Of course they are Australia as I am in Australia. http://www.maseur.com/default.asp

tspwlv said...

I could so use a blog makeover...or two.

I have to put my foot down here and tell you to go get a pedicure and get yourself some flowery Roxy flip-flops. Even if the flowers are just on the soles and only you know they're there. Please stay away from the Keens. So not cute and Ethan's old pair are stinkiest shoes I have ever smelled. Seriously disgusting.

michellejohnnie said...

I want a new blog! And crocs are the best shoes for summer!

bruinlab said...

Seeing how creative you are get a bunch of flip flops and embellish to creat your own style. You obviously have LOADS of that. I am sure they will be darling, sassy and a whole lot more and added bonus, you can use them as a subject of a new post! You may well be able to write them off as a biz expense LOL! Tell me that isn't the best combo.
Cheerio!

News Around The Blogs said...

I try not to wear shoes. If you like Crocs then this is your lucky week. CVS has "CROCs" that are on Clearance for $0.99 each. LESS THEN A BUCK. They aren't real Crocs hence the " " I bought a few pairs.
http://newsaroundtheblogs.blogspot.com/2009/04/cvs-clearance-428.html

Mrs. Wright said...

I agree with the ON flip flops or knock off crocs. The mary jane versions are SO cute and summery~

Enticing Enigma said...

Go to the most exquisite thrift store/vintage store you can find and go on a treasure hunt! The shoes will be worn in (no blisters!) and unique!

Random Hiccups said...

Shoes are wonderful things. Especially sexy summer shoes! Look for something strappy because that will make your legs look longer and leaner (and I mean who doesn't want that!) :) I love flip flops and for sexy nights out kitten heels... its cute flirty and oh so comfy (for being a heel anyway!)

Restyled Home said...

Woohoo! I would love to win this one because I am love change! I have seen some of this designer's blog designs and she is amazing!!

As for the shoes, I still have that photo of you showing off your cute Mary Jane crocs burned in my brain. Who knew a girl could be envious of a pair of crocs?

Still, I am cool enough to know it is time to move on a bit. I like the preppy plaid fabric wedges. You wouls look mighty pretty in those...if you find a pair, let me know where they are, will you? I love to copy...

My fingers are crossed, as usual!
Linda

Holly said...

Oooh! I luv me some shoes! I just ordered two pair of Clarks sandals from Zappos... and they are cute! pretty enough to be pretty, but they are Clarks, so they are super comfy. And when all else fails i either throw on my chuck taylors or a pair of reef flip flops.

Tanya said...

Great giveaway..I have some things on my blog I'm not loving and this would be wonderful!

As for summer shoes, I suggest flip flops all the way, but a pair of cute open-toed kitten heels for night time events. They are fairly comfy and make you look sexy and cute too :)

Jingle said...

LOL! Well, first things first - avoid all Old Navy flip flops and other thin horrible ugly similar versions! They will KILL your back and they don't even look good after like two weeks! LOL! If you want a great pair of flip flops that are super comfortable and cute, too check out Anne Taylor Loft! They have the BEST flips! I have had one pair of theirs for three years and they are in great shape!

scrapcraft said...

Reef flip flops, I wear them until my feet start getting frost bite. Then it is time to switch to Sanuks

Marissa said...

It would be so cool if I won! I like a brand called Earth you can get them at walmart, but they are so comfy. I love them for sandals.

mary beth said...

I would love to win a makeover, and just have to say that Im a gma who loves to have cute sandals all summer long, I think I am addicted to them actually, and have found Reef are super comfy and cute, but my fav is Yellow Box for cute as in sequins, polka dots, etc and sooooo comfy! Im hating the gladiator look too.arggh.

Lacy said...

Anything you don't have to bend over to put on! Haha! But don't listen to me... I still have crocks! :-)

Calamity Anne said...

The older I get the crankier my feet get!!! ARG!!! The ONLY sandals my feet are happy in from the moment they wake up till I tuck them in at night are the Croc's Baja or Athens sandals!!! Seriously though, run out right now and buy a pair!

Jen r. said...

Pick me! I need a make over! :) jen

SoBella Creations said...

Any clog or sandal by born is alway comfy.

I wear crocs all the time and love them. I live in a state that is warm 98% of the time.

Great blog design site!

Amber said...

I would love a makeover! What a fantastic giveaway! My blog is dark and blah... so this would be an awesome way to perk it up!

I am not a flip-flop girl, and just like you, despise things between my tootsies. I would suggest a comfy pair of Keens or cute Sketchers.

Kim said...

My blog is soooooo in need of some magic.

Get Bjorn sandals - mine lasted nine years, looked great the whole time, and were SO comfortable! I've got to get a new pair!!

Adams Family said...

A blog makeover would be fantastic. What a great giveaway!!

And when it comes to summer, I live in my flip flops. Not exciting, but oh so comfortable and easy to put on. It's all about simple and fast for me! I think I need some new ones with some fun bling on them!

Merrill and Mary said...

Personally I love gladitor sandels that are in right now... they are stylish and light and go with practically everything... I found some at Forever 21 for 20 bucks but you can find them cheaper... I went with plain black but they have fancier ones if you want them... here is a link to see some different styles (sorry it's long?) or you can just google them

Aimee said...

I am a total hippie, I still love my birkenstocks but occasionally wear teva flip flops :) both super comfy.

Caroline said...

You will love the Unlisted Bed Time Sandal...it's cheap, chic & what could be more comfortable than a sandal that actually has the words "bed time" in it?

Christian said...

flip flops?
old navy?
target?

amyk8gapgirl said...

Yellowbox!!!! I love the shoes and they have so many different styles to choose from. Probably the most comfortable flip flops I have ever worn!

www.yellowboxshoes.com

the undomesticated wife said...

I have to say my favorite summer shoes are Reefs. They are the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn.

ladybug said...

I am a fan of LL Bean. Comfort is what is's all about.

SHAKS Watts said...

You know the old saying, "You're never fully dressed without a smile?"

I think something along those lines needs to be in place with sandals and pedicures. Skip the purchase of new sandals and splurge on a fabulous pedi!

Theresa said...

My favorite summer shoes are the $20 Reefer flip flops I bought in the city several years ago, after a day of trekking about (sans kiddos! It was a glorious day!) and my feet were KILLING from the horrid sandals I was wearing. I stopped in a little mom and pop place, bought the Reefer flip flops and instant foot heaven. Love them.

If you're looking for something with a little bit more pizzaz, then you can't go wrong with some sassy red peep toe [url="http://www.zappos.com/product/7527497/color/585"]Sketchers[/url].

mandy said...

REEF flip flops! I typically buy a new pair every summer cause I wear them out. They are super comfy!

Wiggleworm Kids said...

I'd love a blog makover!

Summer sandals are my favorite...my recommendation is for a pair of Rainbow sandals/flip flops!!! They are the best!

April said...

I am a big lover of flipflops. But if you aren't used to wearing them, then you need some really comfortable ones to start with. I recommend a pair of Keds flipflops. I have some that I bought about 5 years ago and I still wear them and they feel great. The have a cushier sole and the toe piece won't rub your feet raw.

Tanya said...

Don't get me wrong...I LOVE my Old Navy Flip Flops...but sometimes you want something a little cuter...not dressier...just not as casual...Some Fabulous Flat thong sandels at Target would do the trick....the Mossimo Elenora....super cute

Renee said...

Rainbows!!
I have to admit I never would have bought them for myself, (pricey, and didn't really look comfy) but they are my favorite flippers.
Love em'!!!

amy h said...

I think a pair of flip flops with are great!! And if you want a little bling get a pair with rhinestones!

Jenna Z said...

Have you seen Crocs new summer line?? Some of them are just plain adorable!! I love the Malindi, and they have new colors too!

joanna wilde said...

Count me in please! As for the sandals, I'd typically go for a nicer sandal, but last year I got the old navy flip flops for $2.50 each. Not super hight quality, but you can't beat the price, and can have a large assortment of colors. Not to mention that if anything happens to them....oh well!

Vanessa {Bloom Right Here!} said...

My favs - Keen San Mateo! Love them! http://www.keenfootwear.com/product/ss09/shoes/women/blvd/san%20mateo

I wear them with jeans, capris, even wear them with casual skirts to church.

Mary Ellen said...

Oh man, I am sooooo out of it, I had to look up what REEFs were.....egads, please oh please don't tell the sandal police on me!!!! I am not a die hard brand person.......just whatever will give me some support........but I do know I would like something with rhinestones this year....love that bling.

Kate said...

I just love Nike flip flops! However, I did just get a new pair of North Face flip flops from Dick's Sporting good. Love them they are very cute and just a comfy as mi Nike ones.

Now I just need my new blog to look as cute:)

Marie Reed said...

Converse lowtops with no socks:) I like to keep my tootsies covered even in the summer!

Venti Nonfat Chai Latte said...

These are the flip flops I have my eye on.... I really like the American Eagle brand from Payless.

I would love the blog makeover. I keep changing my layout because I haven't found something I love yet!

Heidi @ Blue Eyed Blessings said...

Man, I'm not too good in the shoe department but you can't beat a good pair of flip flops. Sorry, I've got no advice of what brand. I'll have to read through the comments myself to give me some help!

I would so love a blog makeover!!

Jacqueline said...

I used to never like flip-flops until Teva came out with a great pair last year. They even have all of those cute criss-cross patterns across the top of the foot. I have horrible arches, so comfort is key, and these are sooooo comfortable. I hope I can find another pair just like them for this summer.

Amy said...

personally, I am a flip flop or bare feet girl in the summer. Can't beat 2.50 flip flops from Old Navy.

Liz Casstro said...

I would love a new blog...mine is sooo last year. thanks. Oh, and I suggest Rainbow flip flops...the black hemp ones...too cute and comfy and durable. thanks again!

Bonnie said...

I would LOVE a new blog look that's "mine." As for shoes - flip flops, lady. I practically live in them when I'm not at work during the summer. They're off & on super-easy, they have more styles than you can count these days and they are cheap so you don't feel too guilty when they break & you have to replace them. I have friends who have become quite adept at buying "good" flip flops because they wear them year round. Yup. Year round - even in that lovely snow we had this last winter (I have some crazy friends...). I couldn't do that because it rains too much in Seattle & my feet get too cold but... Ok. I'm off topic. Get yourself some flip flops. :)

Kristin said...

highly recomend Clark's Privo line, stylish and great comfort. http://privo.zappos.com/n/es/d/722264480/page/1.html

Jill said...

Haviana flip-flops are the best!

would love a blog makeover!

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

I love my Croc flip flops. Seriously.

This girl is way talented!

Amy said...

Buy some Croc flip flops. One you buy them, you'll never go back.

pink said...

I second the haviana flops! I have some Kenneth Cole flipflops (with a little bling) that are the most comfy I own too! :)

Mandy said...

In my opinion, for comfort, you can never go wrong with adidas also, I don't know if anyone else s feet get dirty when wearing sandals but mine do so white is a no no but there are some Adidas Ayuna 2 Thongs in black that are yummy!

Tracey said...

Kim, when you said nothing between the toes, I immediately thought of these: http://www.famousfootwear.com/product.asp?product_id=1016933&variant_id=71444
They are my "go-to" sandals. They go with everything, aren't too casual or dressy, are super comfy, and...they are on sale right now. What's not to love?
And, yes, my blog needs makeover big time! Would love to win!
Tracey

Lori R said...

You want comfy? You gotta have Born sandals. http://www.bornshoes.com
They didn't pay me to say it, but they should. These are seriously the most comfortable non-tennis shoes you will ever wear.

Amber said...

My Reef flip flops are soooo comfortable. They come in all colors and the more you wear them, the better they feel. Ahhhh.

Don and Lisa Osborn said...

I love Yellow Box sandals. They are comfy, casual, but chic!

Danielle is fabulous! My three blogs are her designs (older ones) and she only gets better and better!

I'm also glad to see her pursuing stationery. She and I had talked about her venturing that way a long time ago!

Thanks for the chance to win an update.

Best~
Lisa

Monkey's Momma said...

Summer shoes? Flip-flops, of course!

Julie said...

I want a blog makeover! Just started one, but it looks so cheap...this would be the icing on the cake!

Summer shoes...who needs shoes??? Keen makes some comfy flipflip-type things, but they cover your big toe so it doesn't matter if your polish is chipping!

Shane, Megan, and CJ said...

Have you worn Crocs sandals or mary janes? Cuter than the regular ones but still comfy and never smelly!!

Lisa said...

FLIP FLOPS of course!!

Marci said...

Flip flops all the way.

Rachel said...

I am so loving the dollar store flip-flops with a cute skirt and T-shirt this spring/summer. Join me and think of all the money you'll save!

Holly said...

Roxy flip flops! I love mine & by the way, Famous Footwear is having their buy 1 get 1 half off sale & who doesn't like a sale???

P.s. Pick me! Pick me! Please :)

Dottie said...

Fingers crossed with this one, would love to win this! Check out the Tori burch flip flop and Nordstrom, its affordable and you can dress it up or down. BTW, love that you wear your Nikes everyday, I work for them ;)

RitaS said...

How timely!! Just yesterday some of my closest blogging GFs were in despair over their blogs and wanting to pretty it up! I have to send them over - what a great giveaway! My own could be updated for a more unique look. Blog headers I get....side bars and making it look cool - HELP!

lfalduto said...

Oh go for the Birkenstocks!
My blog is practically dying for a make over!

Marne said...

I am a flip flop girl myself! :) Although my tevas are so comfortable.

I hope I win! Thanks.

Two Little Lambs said...

I agree. Old Navy flip flops are the best! I just bought some hot pink ones today. I have terrible feet too and can only wear comfortable shoes. I share your pain girlfriend!

Michelle said...

I'd go with the Old Navy flip flops.

and I'd love to win a blog makeover since I just started blogging, used a standard blog format, and am struggling with the "fit" of it. (!!!)

Blessings on your day!

Michelle

Sugar and Spice Mommy said...

These http://www.reef.com/girls/productdetail/girls/footwear/sandals/RF-001729
are my absolute FAVORITE Reefs!! You will wear them all the time, I even wear them around the house as slippers sometimes!!! Hope I win the blog design! I LOVE Design Girl's work!:)

lindsey said...

I totally agree with the Old Navy flip flops! I also love metallic flats. Thanks for the giveaway! My blog could really use a facelift!

Preciousdesigns said...

Birkenstocks all the way! I finally gave up my old pair for new ones...they were over ten years old! They might be $100, well worth it for
ten years! Oh, and I would have kept them longer...but my hubby made me throw them away...
About the blog, I'd love a makeover!

Jamie said...

Flip flops are the way to go. Get a pair in every color to match every outfit.

I could seriously use a blog makeover!!! Pick me!

Jennifer Johnson said...

I am in love with my Keen flip-flops, and I just bought some Converse that are super casual, comfy - they have lace up or slip-ons! Happy Shoe Shopping!

The Barkels said...

I soo need a makeover!! And as for what shoes to wear, you can't go wrong with flip-flops from Target!!

Krista said...

I'm cheap, so I definitely go for the old standby, Old Navy flip flops. But if you are anti-thongs then I would totally go for a pair of Chacos, which are like Tevas, but with only one strap. They are uber comfy and very versatile!

Ashley said...

Old Navy flip flops get so dirty... Reef flip flops are worth the $$$$$! :) I've had a black pair for 5 years and they look great. Please pick me!!

Michelle Underwood said...

I have to agree with those that say old navy flip flops! $2.50 and you can get one of every color to match everything in your wardrobe! If you mess them up...just buy a new pair! lol

NancyJones said...

omg how perfect is this I just got a new blog and here i sit in the hospital lol. you knowww I did see this girl today when I checked in that had these cooooool summer sandals that were like tennis shoes but were sandals she said they were the most comfy everr. she is a nurse and so they are her second shoes. they are made by nike. so may be right up your alley. she said they had them at Belks. If I get out of here... Im gonna try to find some.

Heather said...

I am a Croc girl too - or I used to be. Severe fallen arches put a stop to that! Chaco's are now my flip flip of choice! Check them out at Zappos - http://www.zappos.com/search/chacos. I think I will go order me a new pair myself! I am new to your blog - and I love it! I have a LOT of reading to catch up on!!

JOYfilled Family said...

Try a Keen! You'll love them and your feet will too. :)

Lena

Evonne said...

Duh. Old Navy Flip Flops, of course! I need a blog design!

She's Crafty! said...

If you like Nikes, then you need to get some Nike flip flops! Cute, practical, comfortable! Woo!

~Dana said...

Sometimes no shoes, and just spending the day with sand in between your toes, and sunshine on your face is heaven!

Rozi said...

I vote for flip flops, a plain basic one, a pair in white and a pair in black, cos then... you can dress them up to match your outfits! Like tie on ribbon bows the same colour as your outfits to make them look cute and girly, or those hair clips with the flowers on them, clip them on for a breezy summer look. Or pin on a couple of brooches to glitz them up. And have them plain when you'r out in the garden or beach!

Elle's Mom said...

I have to vote flip flops too! All I have worn since I had my baby are havaiana flip flops :-)

DeanasSewCrafty said...

Wal-Mart flip flops...$2.99/pair and super comfortable!

Mandi said...

Since you are pretty casual, I am gonna say flip flops, either Teva or Reef ones and you can usually find them at TJ Maxx or Ross (if you start looking early) for about half the retail price. They are bar none the most comfy flip flops I have ever had, and I have a lot of flip flops living on the east coast!

Becky said...

I love my crocs! They have some cute flip flops now. Stick with the crocs.

Oh my, how I need to win this one. I've tried (oh how I've tried) to make my blog look presentable.....and like I know what I'm doing.....but I've failed. Miserably. I need help. This would be perfect for me! Does it sound like I'm begging? Because I am. Pick me!!

Now on to the shoes. Keens are my new favorite. So comfy and are water safe. I love that! I just got these and have worn them almost every single day since.

You've gotta get yourself some!

Stephanie

marzipan79 said...

I would looove a blog makeover!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Kimber-Leigh said...

hi!

i bought some croc sandals (with two straps across the foot) last summer and they are my favorite...the comfort of a croc that's still flattering to the foot!

Yogi said...

Kim,

Good morning. I love Keen's, so much so that I have a pair that I only wear indoors. They feel like you are walking on clouds.

Rhonda said...

I saw that these were mentioned, but REEFS!!!!! I could not live without them during the summer. They are beyond comfortable, and now they are making cute ones. So now I can look sorta sassy while having happy feet!

zigszoo said...

How generous! Here work is really great!

Heather said...

I have been wanting to get a blog going for quite some time now...I'm signed up and still working on a name. A design might give me the kick in the tushie that I need!

As far as sandals...I am a flip-flop girl, but recently bought the most comfortable pair of black Ecco mary jane shoes/sandals. I'm loving them!

Lori Stoia said...

I need a blog makeover as much as you need a sandal makeover.

I am a typical sneeker wearer which means I do not wear too many sandals. Although, I am partial to a wacky flip flop or a easy slide on. Would like to try a crock.

So go for something that works for you.

christel said...

I say flip-flops are the way to go for the summer. It's stylishly casual and comfy at the same time.

This is a great giveaway. I have been in a blog design slump lately. I just can't figure out what I want my blog to look like. Thanks for the chance.

An Imperfect Perfection said...

Flip flops with thicker soles so you don't feel the rocks on the street you walk on!

Amy said...

What's wrong with crocks? They are super comfy, you can wear them in water, or in sand... they are the perfect summer shoe (see, I am in denial too.) Obviously I need fashion help, and my blog wouldn't hurt with some either. Pick me!

mommax3 said...

Old Navy Flip Flops! I live in them in the hot summers here in Cal.

And I'm in the same boat as you with the new puppy thing. Ours better get this going potty OUTSIDE thing SOON :)

I would love a blog makeover

Thanks, Love your site!

The Packard's said...

You need some J Crew elastic wedge flip flops-thay are the best! Just got some in the mail today!

Sarah@VintageChic said...

I love my Reef flipflops! They're so comfy!

Mommas in the House said...

Sandals:

I love sandals, and I am casual kind of girl as well. I would say havaianas!!

Misty said...

I totally recommend Nike flip flops. I now have 4 pairs and I love them. I would wear them year around if I could. What a cute idea for a blog theme flip flops . . . hhmmm

TerynAshleyJewelry said...

You need some very comfy gladiator sandals...

Somewhere In The Sun said...

Dr. Schol's sandals. They feel great and have tons of new styles!

Deanna said...

I would go to the dollar store and buy pairs for $1 a pair. There are some amazing pink leather ones with a pink strap or what I would recommend to you are some blue ones (that I saw) with an amazing scrapbook bird design.
