i know this is one of the lamest posts i have ever written but... it needs to be said. i do not like summer. i burn by just looking outside, feel like i am dying when it's anywhere over 25 deg celcius (that's 77 deg fahrenheit for any of you americanos that may be reading this), and love jackets, scarves and boots... but i love one strange thing about it - i love love love my havvies!
many years ago (10 in fact) i spent a year in brazil and fell in love with many things, one being the national shoe - havaianas (translation from portugese to english = hawaiians). they are amazing - but so flipping expensive in every country, except theirs. i must confess that i actually spent 40 dollars on the pair pictured above. but, they were worth every cent. i also have orange, red with cherries, aqua, brown, white and pearl (op-shops and sales are your friends people!!) and spend nearly the entire season every year with a pair attached to my feet.
the picture below is a lovely memory of the heaven that is most department stores in brazil. no more than 12 reais per pair last time i checked.
oh for a trip to hiper bompreco! :)
