I know the magazines, blogs and stores are already full of cashmere sweaters and suede boots, but I love shopping the last-of-summer sales for bargains I can have fun with now and be thrilled to see next year. Since my tootsies will be bundled up before you know it, I savor these last weeks of wearing sandals and enjoying the pedicures that go with them. All of my picks are still available and all are on sale. I was able to make two of my shoe-athon purchases with an added code, bringing each of them to under $65 a pair!
It was lust at first sight for these Madewell gladiator sandals with colorful raffia pom-poms on the laces. With a nod to traditional shoemaking, they were designed to leave the nailheads visible on the soles. Oh…and did i say the natural colored leather looks and feels truly lux.
If you don’t know Soludos, you should! They are known for their fun and fashion-y embroidered espadrilles. You may remember this pair. While not embroidered, the blue- hued patchwork of this classic lace-up sandal is a nod to the groovy chic of 70s muses like Jane Birkin and Ali McGraw. Music to my ears! And another must-have.
Madewell’s slide with artful raffia fringe and a stylish yet comfy block heel equal the perfect summer party shoe. And because they’re black, they’ll also make a perfect transition into those first few weeks of fall.
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect navy sandal. And I found it! This timeless banded flat from Soludos in midnight suede with handcrafted embroidery, appliqué and grommets is the perfect boho go-to for beach boardwalks…or city streets. Their back zipper makes them easy on, easy off. And did I say SUPER comfy!
So many cute and colorful options! Let me know if you choose any of these for yourself. Or find something else you’d like to share. Happy shopping!
