Happy Monday! The weather in Charleston has been absolutely gorgeous.....and warm! This sudden onslaught of hotter temps has pushed sandal season to the forefront of my mind. As a result, today's Monday Must-Have is dedicated to the classic sandal. This summer staple is one that I tend to live in during the never-ending stretch from late May to August so I strive to only buy well-made options that stand the test of time. Below, I have outlined the three styles I gravitate towards for their endless versatility and have linked some of my favorites that are on the market now.
The Heeled Sandals
When I need to dress up during the warmer months I like to avoid heels, but if the occasion calls for nothing else then I reach for my basic, peep-toe, heeled sandals. These staples are in a rich brown color that goes with all my spring/summer colors and are versatile enough to take me through a myriad of different events. I have linked some options similar to my go-to's below in case you're in the market for a pair yourself.
The Low-Heeled Sandal
In my opinion, the low-heeled sandal is the most versatile warm-weather shoe option. Not only are these beauties super comfortable but they can also be worn effortlessly from brunch to afternoon barbecue. When choosing a low-heeled sandal I like to choose heights between 1-2 inches for easy walking with just enough oompf to elevate my look.
The Flat Sandal
The workhorse of summer shoes has to be the flat sandal. A step-up from flip-flops, these super comfy slides are perfect for all but super formal summer events. When it comes to color and composition, I always pick leather and tend to gravitate towards either rich brown, snake skin or white for ultimate versatility.
Until next time!
