Tory Burch Miller Sandal Review
This is such a great question that I decided to dedicate a whole post to it. I figure if she had this question, I bet a lot of you do too!
ARE THEY WORTH IT? YES!
Im not usually one to spend over $100 on shoes maybe boots so I can totally relate to this question about the Tory Burch Miller sandals. They are pricey and rarely go on sale, so when they do, better act fast because sizes go quickly in this popular iconic shoe.
Given that I live in Houston and get to wear sandals a majority of the year, I decided that the Tory Burch Miller sandals were worth the hefty price tag.
If you just cant bring yourself to spend nearly $200 on a pair of flip flops, I get that! At the end of this post, Ill share less expensive but equally as cute sandals and flip flops I recommend.
If you are interested in buying the Tory Burch Miller sandals, heres my honest review:
QUALITY & COST PER WEAR
For me, the cost per wear ends up being minimal because I wear my sandals so often- I show you lots of outfits later in this post. Our weather doesnt cool down until well into November, so the climate lends itself to flip flops, even when we want to be wearing boots.
The quality and comfort is also there. Theyre made of a leather/synthetic upper and leather lining. The footbed has a comfortable foam cushion that makes wearing them all day a no brainer.
PATENT VS. LEATHER?

Thank you to ShopStyle and Nordstrom for sponsoring todays post!
Good morning friends! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend with the people you love! I absolutely got the biggest kick out of Jordan realizing the Easter bunny had come and her running to James room to wake him up and tell him. It was the sweetest!
Im also thankful that James appreciated his new color Bible as much as I thought he would. He opened it right up and started reading during breakfast that morning.
The History Of The White After Labor Day Rule
During the late 19th centurylong before you could wear jeans to a Michelin-starred restaurantsociety ladies were engaged in an invisible battle with the nouveau riche . One of the subtle jabs that the old money crowd used to distinguish themselves from the nouveau riche was to make wearing white after Labor Day a fashion faux pas.
“It insiders trying to keep other people out,” says Valerie Steele, director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, in an interview with Time , “and outsiders trying to climb in by proving they know the rules.”
