Sandals are hands down my favorite shoe. They leave your feet free to move around, and they’re so easy to slip on in a hurry. I like to make sure I have certain pairs in my closet ready to go, making outfit selection easy on busy mornings.
Having a simple pair of nude slides a summer necessity. This pick goes with just about anything, looks great with a tan, and is office-appropriate. A statement shoe is great to pair with a little black (or little white) dress – I love the palm detail on this pair. T-strap sandals are continuously my favorite style, as they’re comfy, stay put and don’t make the flip-flop noise – which is great for the office! Jack Rogers in a metallic are another easy neutral that pair nicely with the majority of my closet.
For getting a bit dressier, something embellished with a bit of sparkle is nice to have. Or a bright metallic gladiator-style lace-up sandal will do well for that as well. Black is always a safe bet, and I love slides with fun details – like the snakeskin texture and bright gold accents on these. Finally, the standard: tan leather flip flops. Whether I’m running to the store, going to a the beach or meeting a friend for lunch, these are an easy essential.
