Faking Spring Break

I am, sadly, an adult, who does not get spring break.  I don’t even have any kids to give me an excuse to take the week off.  So, I had to work all week.  About which, I was NOT happy. 

However, the folks at Hush Puppies sent me something that allowed me to fake Spring Break; these comfy, cozy slippers from their Spring Break Collection*:

When I first saw these slippers, they reminded me of spa slippers.  And of the slippers from the four star hotel we stayed at in Hawaii a few years back.  Well, they remind me of spa slippers with a more durable sole, cushier insole and the added sass of some plaid.  Added sass is sort of my thing, so I appreciated that touch immensely.  

Also reminiscent of both spas, and Hawaii, is how relaxing these slippers are.  Therefore, every night after work this week, I’ve been going home, taking off my heels, putting on these slippers and faking Spring Break.  I watched a little Hawaii Five-O, got caught up on Cougar Town, started watching Bent.  Basically, I watched anything filmed in a sunny, gorgeous, Spring Break-like destination, while wearing my slippers.  Et voila, fake Spring Break at it's finest.

Want to fake a vacation of your own?  You can get your own Hush Puppies “Ginger Clog” slippers, or any other slippers at the Hush Puppies store hereAnd you can get 15% off through May 31st by using this promo code: 15HUSH.

If you had a real Spring Break, I hope you enjoyed it, you lucky ducks.  And, if you were like me and didn’t, I hope you were able to fit a little relaxation in.


*Disclosure: Although Hush Puppies did provide these slippers to me free of charge, that did not influence my review.  If they were less than great, you can bet your sweet bippies, I’d tell you guys.


  1. Gracey, Im glad you had some relaxation for at least a little bit over the last week! So jealous you got some new slippers! I love indulging on things like new bedding, new pjs, and (of course) new slippers!


  2. Cute idea to fake your own spring break! :)

  3. Gracey, these do look uber comfy! I love wearing slippers around the house. Unfortunately, my daughter loves to homestead all of mine as soon as I get a pair! So hold on tight to yours! Hugs! ~Serene

  4. They do look like spa slippers! Would a grass skirt make you feel better?

  5. When I was a kid, my parents wouldn't let me have a Spring Break -- I was forced to work crappy temp jobs. Now, as an adult, I'm like you, chained to work. It's just not fair! We should get some time off.

    Those slippers look delightful. Thanks for the review.

  6. How cute are these? I need some non-winter slippers for wearing around the house. I had no idea they made something like this!

  7. These are adorable and now you have me reminiscing about my trip to Hawaii this past summer- what a beautiful place! Spring break for Canadian kids was in the middle of March but I;m going on vacay over Easter weekend- can't wait!

  8. Oh my comfy! Those look super cozy :) Just wanted to drop by and say I loved your snakeprint submission over on Rachel's Lookbook! You looked fantastic - that shirt was made for you, Gracey :)


  9. Thanks for the lovely comment - sorry it took me a while to get back to you, i've been a bit under the weather this weekend.
    Anyway!! I love spa slippers and these ones look super comfy. Ahh I wish i'd grown up in the US and had a spring break - they look SO amazing on tv!!

    Following you too!!

  10. I don't get a real spring break either. I am out of school and working all week like normal, just one less thing on the to do list this week. The slippers make me think of foot heaven!


  11. I wish we got Spring Break as adults. That would be nice. Very cool that you got some comfy slippers to relax like you are on spring break though! :)
    Who doesn't love comfy slippers!?


Hooray! Comments! I love comments!! (And cake, but if you just leave a comment, I'll manage the cake on my own).
