Wow, I can’t believe it’s already Memorial Day weekend! Where I am from, which is New Jersey, this was always the unofficial start to the summer. In New Jersey, and I am sure in other parts of the United States, we pick a beach within driving distance, grab all our friends or family, and pack up our bags with the essentials: beach towels, sunscreen, and yoga flip flops. What? Yes! They are so comfortable! But, that’s not the only other reason I wear yoga flip flops to the beach:
- They Are Eco-Friendly
My flip flops are not only made from an eco-friendly Eva Foam yoga mat (yes!) but the straps, which are super cushiony and not at all pulling at my skin are actually vegan. That’s great to know.
- They Have Cute Designs
There are a bunch of different types of yoga flip flops available on the market these days, but the Aurorae ones have the cutest little yogi designs on both the inside of the strap as well as at the bottom of the outer sole. So, when you’re walking up and down the beach catching the sunset you’re going to leave behind some cute downward dog facing poses everywhere you go!
- They Make Me Feel Like I’m in Yoga Class
Because I’m basically walking on a yoga mat when I wear these flops, I am constantly reminded about that first step you take when you enter your yoga class. You walk onto your yoga mat and it almost immediately brings you to this place of calm. I know, you probably think I’m crazy, but I absolutely love that feeling. The yoga mat is my safe haven and I can’t wait to get on it.
- They Are So Easy to Clean
Although I can’t stick my yoga flip flops in the washing machine, it is super easy to clean them with hot water and a bit of detergent of dishwashing soap. Because they are usually worn outside by elements such as sand, grass and dirt, they do tend to get kind of dirty. No problem at all since once you just scrub them a minute with a washcloth, soap and water, they look almost brand new again and none of the color has rubbed off!
- They Are So Comfortable
I know, I mentioned that I don’t just wear these flip flops because they are comfortable, but it is the #1 reason that I wear them!
Check out the pair I have and have a great Memorial Day weekend!!
