NEW CASTLE —
The time to relax on the beach, sun yourself and attend many barbecues. And also the time to free your feet from the confines of the past several months being bundled up in boots and closed-toe shoes.
Each summer I like to look for a new pair or two of summer sandals that I can add to my closet — sandals that can be worn daily and with just about anything I own.
I tend to search for pairs that are lightweight, easy to slip on and off, and are in classic, neutral colors. I also search for pairs that can be dressed up or down — that I can throw on for a trip to the beach, but can also be dressed up for a summer wedding.
But then every once in awhile a brightly patterned shoe jumps out at me and I just can't help myself. These shoes I tend to reserve for neutral looks like a T-shirt and denim shorts outfit, which allows the bright shoes to stand out.
To the right, I've chosen several pairs that I have my eyes on this summer in a variety of price points. H&M, Old Navy, Gap, Forever 21, and J.Crew Factory are the stores I tend to find my favorite sandals in. With lots of different options, you're sure to find something that will fit your life, wallet, and closet.
Now, if only I could figure out how to get all of these into my house without my husband noticing ...
Where do you shop for summer sandals? Do you have great stores that I should check out?
