a spring in my step
As the stones fall off my favorite embellished Sam Edelmans and my gladiators have been progressively falling apart since that crazy night out in New York City last summer, it is very clearly time for new sandals that’ll go from spring to summer and beyond. Don’t opt for those strappy sandals just yet, though — thicker straps serve as a better transition piece between seasons. Here are some of my faves!
Steve Madden ‘Bethanyy’ Sandal, $59.95
This pair is on trend with the tangerine and the leather is oh-so-soft. The best part? They’re affordable, too!
Luxury Rebel ‘Sasha Three Band’ Sandal, $100
Meet the minimalist’s version of color-blocking. The yellow accents add a spring-y feel to these otherwise neutral sandals. I’m loving the thick strap that off-sets the thinner ones, and the heel strap that extends from the middle of the shoe.
Dolce Vita ‘Marquez’ Laser Cut Sandal, $149
Okay, so these sandals don’t feature the thick straps I’ve been raving about, but the laser-cut leather is impeccable. Not to mention, hello gold hardware! Though patterned, these sandals can be dressed up or down and can adapt to all sorts of looks, whether you’re girly, artsy, casual…etc.
Stuart Weitzman ‘Bounceraf’ Sandal, $275
Go tribal with these beaded Stuarts! Half-shoe and half-sandal, this piece is a great transitional one for days when it’s both hot and cold out.
While you’re waiting for summer to officially arrive, what sandals are you sporting?
