Find Your Perfect Pair – Style, Color, and Comfort 

When shopping for your perfect pair of sandals, it’s essential to keep style, color, and comfort in mind.

For my summer capsule wardrobe, I like to have:

  • a black, white, and beige (sand, nude) pair of sandals
  • a flat espadrilles, boat shoe, or canvas sneaker (usually navy, red, or white)
  • flip flips or other simple slip-ons (fun, vibrant, colors)
  • a wedge (usually straw-colored)

This combination of summerwear can take you from the beach to the mall to dinner on the boardwalk easily!

4 Ways to ROCK Your Low Heels

If you thought that low heels were dull and lacked versatility, think again- You don’t always need towering stilettos to make a statement! Ouch!

Dresses and skirts are perfect for showcasing your low heels- a bohemian maxi or a breezy kaftan, any dress will look fantastic with your low heels!

Shorts, lightweight pants, and jeans are other great choices for laid-back summer days. Tuck in a blouse, put on a hat and some sunnies, and you’re ready to go.

Your summer wardrobe will never be boring again! As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases at no cost to you.

Tips For Maintaining Your Sandals

Maintaining your sandals can be something you want to forget about -throw them in the back of a closet, right?-

That is a huge disservice to your wallet- taking good care of your summer footwear extends its life and keeps them in great condition for a long time!

  • Treat them with a water-resistant spray to protect against moisture
  • Gently wash your sandals with an old toothbrush and soap to remove dirt and grime, wipe dry, and air dry
  • Condition leather sandals with a leather conditioner to retain suppleness and shine
  • Store them in a dry and cool place during the off seasons
  • Never wash suede
  • Follow manufacturer care instructions if there are any


Enjoy your shoes and especially enjoy being able to walk for long distances without feeling like you have to rip them off, throw them across a field, and run to the nearest person you can bribe for an achingly good foot rub!
