The Life of Bon: Jellys are back and you're gonna be in trouble...

Jellys are back and you're gonna be in trouble...

(...ten points if you know what song the title is referring to)

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Jelly Beans but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #JellysAreBack http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

There's been some pretty crazy things that have happened to me so far this summer.  My dog puked all over the bed (what?), my husband lost his third wedding ring, (WHAT?) and I got scammed out of $1,100 (WHATWHATWHAT?!?!)

Yes.  It's been nuts.

I was feeling slightly frazzled and out of control in my life when the opportunity came to promote a pair of jellys.  Let me see if I can explain to you what it felt like to bring jellys back into my life...  You know when you're feeling kind of vulnerable and out of your element and then you see someone or something that brings you comfort?  Someone that you know, that makes you happy, that makes you feel like you're home and everything will end up okay?  That's what jellys were for me this summer.  I was vulnerable and a bit scared and very frustrated, and then there were jellys.  A comfortable summer sandal that tastes of childhood and innocence and carefree days that go on and on and on.

Weird that a sandal can say so much, isn't it?


Now that I've given my totally sentimental and emotional review of the jellys, let's get practical.  The shoes  are totally comfortable and can be worn with literally any outfit in my wardrobe.  I took them to the water park and then out to a nice restaurant later in the evening for dinner.  I especially love my pair because they are clear for crying out loud, what doesn't go with clear?!  (But if clear ain't your thing, you can pretty much get any color known to man.  I'm seriously coveting the neon yellow right now.)  You can dress them up.  You can dress them down.  You can wear them to the beach.  You can wear them into town. (See what I did there?)  You can wear them anywhere!

Side note:  I feel like I need to give mad props to whoever wrote the color descriptions for the shoes.  The color description for the clear shoe reads:  You are often found looking absent-mindedly into space. You have the memory of a sieve. You'll have a shower when you look at your feet and notice that they are dirty.  Now I feel like a million bucks AND have great shoes.  Thanks, color description writer!  (The other color descriptions are just as fun to read.  I read every single one because I am a nerd and have a lot of respect and admiration for great writers out there.)

Top:  Kohl's (similar here) Shorts: Target (Originally white jeans- I cut them off) Shoes: c/o Jbeans

This is the pose I make when I'm uncomfortable posing so I decide to make fun of myself.  Admittedly, it's not my best.  Also, notice totally disjointed elbows.  Impressive, I know.




The best news is that the jellys ship free in the U.S.  HALLELUJAH!  I got mine two days before I was even starting to expect them- fast AND free delivery? Sign me up!  Oh, and if you're feeling a little hesitant don't worry because if you're not digging your shoes you can send them back within 30 days and get your money back.  Easy peasy!

Oh, and one last thing- be prepared to get compliments up the ying yang when you wear these bad boys.  I have worn them out in public twice and both times had girl comes up to me dying to know where I got my jellys.  I'm not ahead of the fashion curve very often, so when I am I definitely soak it all in!  Trust me, it feels great!

  2. I love a good pair of Jellys! In high school I had ballet like slipper ones, heals, and ones like the ones you're wearing. I see them for the little kids and pick them up for friends' munchkins but haven't seen them (reasonably priced) for grownups lately. I'll definitely check this out!

  7. I can't believe jellies are back!!! How did this happen? I had a pair eons ago. I wanted them so bad that I pretended they fit even though they were too small since they didn't have the size bigger.
