My Go-To Sandals for Spring

May 21, 2021

Disclosure: Thank you to DSW and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, purchased and worn by yours truly.

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but confession time: I have a soft spot for shoes. They can make or break an entire outfit and an entire day– nothing ruins a day like sore feet, am I right? And while our weight may fluctuate over the years [shoutout quarantine 15 😉 ], I can always count on squeezing into my trusty shoe size. If nothing else, footwear is a fun way to express ourselves and if you’re anything like me, a brand spankin’ new box of shoes sparks all sorts of joy. Insert DSW.

With a new season, comes an excuse for new shoes– or the time to break out old favorites! I recently got lost browsing the virtual isles of the wonderland known as DSW. For those of you who aren’t familiar, DSW carries hundreds of our favorite brands that we know and love at great prices. And as if said great prices aren’t enough to get you on board, they also offer speedy shipping FREE for DSW VIP Members – a rewards program that is free to join and earns you perks like free shipping, points for every purchase, birthday discounts and more! With literally thousands of styles for women, men, and kids, it’s safe to say DSW is the sandal destination for summer. It’s no secret DSW carries all the best shoes at amazing prices, so today we’re highlighting a few of my go-to sandals for Spring –> Summer with a little help from DSW.

Jaklyn Espadrille Sandal [true to size]

Platform sandals [AKA Espadrille Sandals] are BACK this season and I could not be more excited about it. If you’ve never owned a pair, get ready to slide your feet into the comfiest of comfortable sandals. I got this pair last year in black and decided to keep the neutral theme running since they got a ton of love last season. Platforms are a fun way to elevate [pun intended 😉 ] any outfit this spring.

Cortz Wedge Sandal [true to size]

Moving on, but keeping the platform sandal convo going! If you haven’t noticed a theme here, spoiler alert: it’s comfort. As a thirty-something year old [who’s counting?], going on 80, my feet love anything that feels like walking on clouds. So in case you were wondering, yes – it is possible to achieve an elderly level of comfort without sacrificing style for elderly-looking footwear.

Parra Espadrille Wedge Sandal [Nude, true to size]

Ooh-la-la! Introducing the perfect wedge sandal you’ll wear on repeat this season! I’ve been wearing these back-to-back already and can’t get enough. They’re not too high, surprisingly comfortable, and match E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. Apologies in advance if you see me wearing these with every. single. outfit. My man Steve can do no wrong!

Hailee Sandal [Beige Faux Leather, True to Size]

So you’ve got an event to attend this summer [we’re all a little jealous of your excuse to dress up], but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg — errr, a foot 😉 on a pair of heels? Look no further than the Hailee Sandal. It can be dressed up for work or play and it’s available in five fun color combos for whatever outfit your event entails. I was pleasantly surprised to find them comfortable AND within a price range I think we can all celebrate. Here’s to cute, comfortable, and affordable heels!

Tulum Sandal [Periwinkle, size down if in between]

Last, but not least, are my beloved Crocs. If you’ve been on the fence about Crocs [I was, up until the last few years], these are here to sway your opinion. Dare I say the most comfortable sandal you may wear all summer long?! Waterproof, super cushiony, and available in SO MANY colors this year! This may or may not be my third pair… #CantStopWontStop

While the CDC may be recommending social distancing [thanks, Coronavirus], the calendar isn’t paying attention, and holidays aren’t changing their dates!
