COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET...I PURCHASED CROCS

Last summer, I finally broke down and purchased a pair of Crocs for my husband and me. I noticed that Monogram Mama came clean on her blog so I thought I would finally publish my Crocs post.

Crocs remind me of Earth Shoes from the 70's (dating myself here) only made out of plastic foamy material... presented in p r e t t y colors. One thing that Crocs have going for them that Earth Shoes and other preppy shoes do not is that .....they are water proof (plus a 100 year life in a landfill)! My Crocs are hot pink with a big pink and green flower on them. I wear them primarily around the house. Also, when you are in the shower at a club, pool or at the beach, I like my feet protected from the unclean elements...also these little numbers hide a less then perfect pedicure.

My husband's Crocs look kind of like LL Bean Boots (ok, not really, but closer than mine) which makes him feel a little better. He wears them to water the flower and herb garden, and in the morning when he runs out across the wet lawn to get the Financial Times and Wallstreet Journal.

My kids love them and wear them to the club in the summer. Mine, for the most part, are kept in the privacy of my home. I guess they have replaced flip flops.

If you have gone over to the dark side or the Croc side, let me know. Unfortunately, there will not be any Earth Day awards for you either if you have.

I have the same crocs, but the only time mine leave the house is when I am going to pick up food. They are great to wash the car in though.

I just can't go there yet. I put them on and feel like my feet are 8 feet long! I do agree they are comfortable and think they would be perfect in a public shower. My children all have them and love them.

Oh we all have them (except hubby)....and by the way, WHERE did you get those LL Bean duck looking ones? I have NEVER seen those or they would be in MY closet. Seriously, where did you find those??

They are called the Islander and even come in baby blue with white leather.

This is terrifying. Worse than fanny packs.
