Gladiators are a staple for me. I have always loved them and every year I find myself searching for a new pair. These days, I don't buy anything unless I know I love it, but since I'm so simple and clearly smitten with anything tan, I was overtaken by these gladiator sandals from Urban Outfitters. I can always count on UO to have a sturdy pair of sandals, so I was pretty excited when I walked in recently.
In Houston, you can wear sandals through November, so I wanted my last summer pick to be a transitional one. Although gladiators are the kind of sandal you either hate or love (I don't think there's ever been an in-between), I really feel like they should be in everyone's closet! With autumn approaching, they can easily be worn with a sweater and jeans, a jacket and dress, or even with leggings and a comfy sweatshirt! For this shoot, I wore these sandals with my high-low Chloe Dao dress. I have seen gladiators in so many different styles,: with colorful puffs, beads, and even pieces of metal plates. But you know me!
