The fact that it’s officially sandal season is so exciting to me! It’s been a long winter and I am ready for the warmth of the summer sun! I feel like I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect, cute summer sandals for months, it was something I was daydreaming about. Do you ever see the ‘free shipping’ button and just go crazy online? Talk about good news! Or even better, a BOGO deal. In recent years, I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone with shoes because I’ve decided that accessories and fashion are a form of self expression. So if I see a pair of shoes I think I can style well with my wardrobe and busy lifestyle, they are coming home with me!
When it comes to buying a pair of sandals, practicality truly is everything. We don’t want to start shopping for shoes that will never make it out of your closet, we want to get the best use out of our money for sure. Be honest with yourself when it comes to your shoe purchases. If you live a lifestyle that is go go go, maybe you need more comfortable shoes that will get you from point a to point b. Never underestimate heel height, if you need to try them on in store or return them because of this, that is okay! Moreover, if you have a ton of events like weddings this summer, go for the dressier sandals for those special occasions. Specifically, are you traveling this summer and need travel shoes, outdoor sandals, arch support or a comfortable footbed?
While practicality is incredibly important, it’s still fair to have fun! If you want to get a pair of shoes for something that you have coming up to look forward to, go get them! Just maybe not every pair! Everyday wear is important to think about.
The perfect summer wardrobe does exist. There are so many different styles of sandals that are on trend this summer, and a lot of them seem to be elevated classics. For example, wedge sandals with a lucite touch. Some on-trend pairs at the moment are platform sandals, bright colors as well as neutral hues, gladiator sandals in the sense that they lace up your leg and chunky platforms.
This goes along with practicality, but budget-friendly options can be a great idea if you live in a climate where you only get the opportunity to wear sandals a few months out of the year. If you have a big event and you want to splurge, that’s something to consider, as well. Finally, I think if you’re purchasing an everyday type of sandal, you can totally push the budget a bit, knowing you will get a ton of wear out of them.
