For part of this summer, I will be blogging about my favorite sandals, and I decided to kick it off with my favorite ones. These tan sandals that I purchased from Love Street are everything I could ask for in a sandal: comfort, simplicity, and a neutral color.
I have worn these sandals with jeans, dresses, leggings, and even after a workout (oops!). These are my grab and go sandals. When I first got them, I was afraid they wouldn't last because the leather feels so thin (my sister dubbed them the "Band-Aid"" sandals). However, to my surprise, I have had them for a little over a year, and they are still so sturdy! The sole is really flexible and light, so walking in them is like walking barefoot.
I found this hidden spot in Houston, and just knew this had to be the place to shoot my sandals. Summer isn't always about the sun, or water, or even a tan. Sometimes it's about embracing nature and finding peace within the shadows of a tree (especially in Houston because MY GOSH IT'S HOT). Light and airy clothing are the perfect match for my sandals, just like a cool breeze under the arms of a tree.
Comfortable shoes are always the first pick. But when the shoe is comfy and stylish, then I'm definitely in! Mules are a style of shoes that I always associated with my unstylish elementary school secretary. But like puberty, fresh designer eyes are just the trick. In this case, Missguided played their cards right!
I know, I always write about shoes you can wear to run errands, or while you're out eating. But these little flats are perfect for your day-to-day activities. The one-inch heel makes the shoe so much more walkable, because it adds support to your foot (super flat shoes without any support start to hurt your feet after a while). The bow on the top was the deal sealer. Bows are usually a no-go in my book, but I couldn't get over how it "upped" the style of what could have been a very basic flat.
Pointed shoes often feel like your toes are getting squished, but surprisingly, you don't get that feeling with these flats. I have definitely changed my perspective on mules!
