Kilim Slippers from Istanbul: Things I Have

I just returned from a week long trip to Turkey... it included a number of days sailing the southern coast and a couple of days exploring Istanbul. 

While at the Spice Bazaar in Istanbul I came across a rug shop that was also selling slippers... I had to stop in and check it out! 

Turns out they used kilim rugs and repurpose them into these amazing shoes. Each pair is unique and the colors and patterns vary greatly. I tried on half a dozen pairs before settling on these... super comfortable + I really liked the colorful design!

Excited to pair them with a white shirt and jeans, for a casual summer look.
