Growing up in Texas, I could have worn flip flops most days of my young life. But every single pair I ever tried on left my toes screaming for relief. Thankfully, the Brazilians shared their well kept secret with the rest of the world when Havaianas went international.

I now own the most comfortable thongs (yes, that's what they were called back in the day) ever made in every color of the rainbow.

When I saw them in baby sizes, I snatched up a pair for my lil one. Fully prepared for the dog days of summer, her tiny toes will look adorable peeking out from the rubber straps while she struts the poolside in her bikini.
