This year it’s all about the low heels, padded straps, pastel hues, and the perfect blend of style and comfort. We’re saying bye to casual, old flip flops and slides and hello to flatforms and elevated colors and finishes. Read on to find your perfect summer sandal!


Casual Sandals

Casual footwear is elevated through interesting design elements like crochet, cross straps, woven designs, and kitten heels. I love how a simple silhouette can be updated for a totally fresh, new look this season without sacrificing comfort. Running errands in these sandals will instantly upgrade your look. I’m highlighting flat sandals and resort wear sandals in this section, and if you want some style inspiration, check out:
