Ode to Jack Rogers Part I

On this first day of summer, I thought it would be perfect for me to talk about my favorite summer shoe.  You've heard me talk about Jack Rogers on here time and time again, I normally refer to them as my "JRs."  Other than my Rainbows, I really don't wear any other shoes from April through October.  (I wish I wore tennis shoes more because that would mean I'm working out, but that's another story...)  I am not a fan of heels, so when I learned about four years ago that I could get away with wearing Jack Rogers (flats!) and still look semi-dressy, I gave up heels for good.  I've only worn them since when I've been a bridesmaid... and even then, the JRs are in my purse to rescue my feet after about five minutes.  To me they really are the perfect shoe. 


Below is my collection of JRs (minus the beat up, broken gold pair in the top of my closet that I just can't bear to throw away.)    The platinum ones on the left were my first pair ever and I still wear them to concerts, TBMF, things of that nature.  The red and black ones are for tailgating and for reppin' my NC State pride, I can't wait to rock them in September!  I got the coral/pink pair as a birthday gift and they are a fun change from my metallics. I love to wear these when I need some color with my outfit.




These next two pictures really crack. me. up.  I was on my way to the beach for Memorial Day weekend and I saw this sign on the side of the road.  Trust me...it sticks out, you cannot miss it.  and yes, that's a trailer that they have the sign displayed on...




and this, my friends, is the store that was selling them... Just goes to show that pretty much everybody loves Jack Rogers! They may have a new showroom in the heart of New York City, but the Country View Western Store in Goldsboro, North Carolina are rocking JRs as well!




and speaking of country western stuff, I wore JRs to a rodeo, a real bull ropin' and ridin' rodeo, in Texas. 




These next two pictures are from my 25th birthday.  I was STOKED about my new gold pair of JRs my friends Kristen and Kristen gave me (these have since been beat, they are the ones I speak of that are in the top of my closet...)  Didn't they looked beautiful with my seashell birthday cake?!  Remember the picture of the boat I showed you a few weeks back that we ran aground?? These Jack Rogers almost went overboard on the FIRST night I ever wore them.  Let's just say I was more worried about losing them than I was about the fact that we were stranded on an island in the middle of the sound at 2:00 in the morning...




Hope you've enjoyed my stories and praise about JRs!  Tomorrow is Part II of my Ode to Jack Rogers.  I got creative...


Stay tuned!

I have 3 pairs. I used to have 4 but my dog ate one pair when he was a puppy. My platinum flats and gold wedges are my favorites!

You are too cute! Love the pic of you in the blue dress! I've gotta say...I'd never heard of this brand until now...I wonder if they'll make a splash on the west coast!

Such a cute post! Love my JR! <3 Living I FL I get a lot more wear out of mine. I want a pair for football season for sure now.

Super cute cake!

You know I never heard of those sandals until I started blogging. They're not too popular where I live I guess.. very cute though!

love, love, love this post because I totally understand. The fire alarm went off at the condo we were staying at last summer on vacation and I put my JR's in my purse just in case it was a real fire before exiting the building!! :)
