Fashion’s Most Comfortable Shoe Trends Are Back & Better Than Ever

This is the revitalized luxe shoe trend to slide your feet in for the remainder of summer 2020.

Shopping

As our day-to-day outfits have conformed to the current dynamics of our world, shoe trends have also drastically shifted to meet our most recent leisure needs. Because we are leaving the house less and limiting our exposure to the outside more, our demand for comfortable footwear has become a matter of even greater importance. Although life has gotten less hectic for many of us and we now have more time to lounge around in style, our priorities have gone from stunning statements to subtle chic real quick, forcing us to frantically adjust our shopping needs to fit our new lifestyles.

While temperatures rise, we're wearing less these days from our heads to our toes. As we run errands and find creative ways to be active outdoors, we've become less pressured to go full glam while subscribing to a new form of effortlessly wearing not-so-ordinary basics but making them fashion.

No longer limited to dull neutral tones and flat thin soles, creative variations of slides, Velcro straps, quilted, and chunky platform sandals are on the rise. With contrasting colors, textures, and intricate designs, this is the revitalized luxe shoe trend to slide your feet in for the remainder of summer 2020.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
