Nordstroms has such cute lines of these. 

Happy shopping,

I don't recall anyone saying one couldn't wear a maxi skirt with flip flops. What was said was that one really couldn't wear a particular cashmere maxi skirt with flip flops. I love how you (and your two cohorts) always want to debate things that haven't been said.

No one can EVER wear flip flops with ANY maxi skirt or maxi dress.

Are all sandals considered flip-flops?

Not imo.  I only consider flip flops to be ones that 1) have a strap between the toes, 2) have no heel strap, and 3) make that flip flop sound when you walk.   They are also often, but not always, fairly flat.   However, if pressed, I could delete #1 if 2 and 3 still stand.    All flip flops are sandals, but not all sandals are flip flops.   And by perusing the site, it appears that my definition is pretty consisten with Zappos' definition.

So, this is a flip flop:

 

 

And this is not:

Talk about debating what's not been said, Lol...  But actually, there is no rule book about cashmere and what it should or shouldn't be teamed up with, Nice flip flops would look good with the donna karan skirt from last week and it's clear from that pic then that the skirt is a transitional one and can be worn for different seasons.  Now if you were to argue what kind of body would look good in a skirt like that I think you'd be onto something, Not everybody can wear a pencil thin skirt like that....

That is so cute and that's what comes to mind when I think of a maxi dress for Summer too - the length and all. 

My girls and I were on the hunt for dresses for a baby shower we're going to next month, Target had a bunch of both maxi dresses and skirts.  The dress DD2 chose was shorter in the front and longer in the back, I don't know if you'd call it a maxi dress but it was trendy.  DD1's dress was more of an a-line knee topper with thick straps, she plans to team them up with her cowboy boots, Lol.

If those shoes were flat, I would consider them flip flops too. Sandals if they had a heel.
