For someone who helped launch the phrase into the mainstream, Gwyneth Paltrow is not being very “stealth wealth” right now. That is because the actor and wellness guru has spent the last few weeks wearing Gucci-monogrammed sweaters and doing sponcon for Airbnb on Instagram. She then uploaded this photo of herself in a pair of Budgerigar flip-flops, which—gasp!—were not logo-less and made by some Shinto monks and then sold via The Row, but simple Havaianas that one can find in local malls.

“OOTD summer round-up,” she captioned the post, which included a photo of her wearing Hunter wellies. The British equivalent—cumbersome, puritanical, wet-weather appropriate—of Brazil’s toe-bearing thongs, Paltrow must like the feeling of rubber against her soles when the mercury rises. Synonymous with supermodels playing volleyball on Ipanema beach, the casual, “out of office” attitude semaphored by the Havaiana represents the final levels of luxury: comfort and laziness and opting out of the daily grind.
