Striped Summer Espadrilles

Details: Soludos Striped Espadrille / Banana Republic Shirt Dress (On Poshmark, Similar Option)

I love these sandals! As soon as I saw them I knew I needed to have them. The stripe is perfect for summer. It can be paired with everything from crazy patterns and bright colors to this crisp, clean shirt dress. And the little bow ties had me at hello. Soludos has come out with a lot of really nice espadrilles for summer. Some are embroidered with cute phrases and others feature quirky designs like avocados or flamingos. A few Soludos Sandals are on sale as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. And as someone who is new to this brand, I can confidently report that they are very comfy! Have you bought any cute sandals this summer?

Fun-in-the-sun Package!

When I received this recipe for a cucumber foot mask from Glamour, I thought of a great gift idea for my sisters (they both have birthdays in January). I found a cute pair of sandals (they are on sale now), a bright nail polish, and put this homemade foot mask in Ball Jars and tied on the ribbon. I call them Fun-in-the-sun packages to help deal with the snowy, gloomy weather. They may not be able to use the sandals right away, but they can make their feet sandal ready with the foot mask and nail polish. I just used the leftovers of the foot mask and it makes your skin feel nice and soft.

Silver and Gold

For summer footwear, I like a sandal that will go with just about anything. Silver and gold are the tried and true colors that accomplish that goal. Bridesmaid dress after bridesmaid dress will tell you that. Pair a gold sandal with a navy blue dress for a more nautical look. Wear a silver sandal with a black summer dress for a dressier look. What kind of sandal will you be wearing this summer? Here are some that I found for under $200!
