I got a little fix of it during my recent trip to the West Coast but I’d be lying if I said that I’m not looking forward to warmer temps in Chicago…and let’s be be honest, wanting to wear dresses/shorts/rompers/skirts/wedges/tank tops/bathing suits is very much a part of the excitement.
I’ve got a closet packed with outfits that require a little sunlight but I do feel like I’m missing a good pair of summer sandals that I can wear on a day-to-day basis. I love the Miss Sixty cage sandals I ‘borrowed’ from my mom’s shoe closet and wore pretty much nonstop on my trip (see them here) but they ‘re black. Never a bad thing, especially not in my world, but summer is the one time I actually sort of succeed in wearing color and if there’s nothing else black in the outfit, I absolutely refuse to wear black shoes. It just looks so abrupt and poorly thought out – I much prefer the subtlety of nude sandals if I’m wearing, say, jeans and a white tee.
Another reason I’m in need of a new pair of sandals? Because nothing kills an outfit like a pair of rubber flip flops. Woof.
I’ve been scouring the Internet for good pairs of sandals and while I haven’t decided on a pair yet, I have found tons of good options. I prefer to get something in a shade of nude, tan, beige or gold but I’m open to suggestions (so drop me some in the comments?) Of course, there are a few pairs of brighter shoes that found their way on to this list as well. Simply click on the picture to purchase any of these.
