For the past three years, I have fruitlessly searched for the perfect pair of flat sandals. My low success rate is likely due to the fact that I typically wait until mid-July to begin my search, when -- as could be predicted -- everything cute is already sold out in my size. I end up with ill-fitting sandals in impractical colors and patterns that never get worn more than a handful of times. But this year I have vowed to start my search much earlier, because although I might like to pretend that I'm getting away with it, it is just not acceptable to wear Havaianas to work.
