When you hear the words ‘summer shoes’ what instantly comes to mind? Um, sandals–duh. If I could wear sandals year-round I would be in heaven. But, we all know that isn’t likely. These are some of my favorite sandals I found out this year. Some are splurges, some are on sale! The Dolce Vita braided heel sandal in Cafe is probably my go-to sandal when looking to dress up a casual outfit. They are comfy and are worth every penny! Bold straps seem to be the new thing this summer when it comes to sandals and I am not mad about it one bit. Who doesn’t love a statement sandal that every girl wonders where you got your shoes from when you walk by. I know I am one to go right up to them and ask where they got it because I know I’ll go home dreaming about them and wondering where the heck she got them! The Steve Madden studded slide sandal is super comfy as well and very close, in my opinion, to a Valentino dupe. Affordable and stylish is what we like to see, am I right ladies?!
