GAL Find – Missoni Loves Havaianas

Don’t these fab sandals just scream summer!?  My latest GAL find are these bright, limited edition “Missoni Loves Havaianas” flip flops (Nordstrom, $70). 


A stylish combination of two of my favorite brands, these are definitely on my summer wish list!  Not only are these flip flops comfortable, water resistant, and super chic, but they’re an affordable designer shoe that won’t break the bank.  Rock these iconic Missoni printed thongs with everything from a bikini and shorts to a maxi dress.  They’d also be the perfect shoe to pack for your summer getaway!  Look at the cute travel bag that comes with each purchase! 


This GAL find is selling out fast, so scoop them up while you can!  Happy Shopping!
