Sandal Season

Happy Wednesday, friends, I hope your week is going well! We’re on day 87 of constant rain (or what feels like 87 days!), and I’m thisclose to building an ark! We’re shooting our GxHSP Summer Collection at the lake house next week, and I’m starting to think I’ll be going for the wet dog look on this one, ha!

But rain or not, it’s time to pack up those boots and dust off your pedicure, because it’s sandal season! And from wedges and slides to flip flops and heels, DSW has a huge assortment of every style your season needs… and all at incredible prices! Plus today is the last day you can save 20% off select brands at DSW like Steve Madden with code WHATAFEET.

I always lean towards nude colored sandals, both for their neutrality and versatility, but also for a flattering, elongated leg. I rounded up three styles that cover all your outfits this season… slides, wedges, and a dressier heel.

Slide Sandals //

Let’s start with the most casual sandal of the bunch… the slide. I wear them with everything from shorts and cut-offs to skirts and dresses. They have an effortless vibe about them, and the classic shape never goes out of style.

These have a comfortable footbed, and a designer-inspired style that looks much more expensive than their affordable price tag! And even more affordable today with the 20% off!

Fit Tip: I tend to size up half in slides so my heel isn’t too close to the end, but they run TTS

I love the cognac color for pairing with everything, including black and white. Throw them on with jeans or cut-offs for a more elevated look to your casual styles.

Wedge Sandals //

The wedge is my second most-worn style for Spring and Summer…gives me the height I like, while still be comfortable for long wears. They can also go casual or dressy, depending on how you style them, and the espadrille is always a fun touch for Summer. And included in the 20% off sale today!

Fit Tip: I typically have to size up in this brand, but these wedges are TTS

These pants are just as cute with flat sandals, but the wedge gives them a little boost of style and height (which I always appreciate!). The neutral color goes with literally everything, and really elongates the leg when paired with shorter skirts.

And finally, the dressiest style your closet needs this season… a nude block heel for all your summer celebrations. The nude is perfect for pairing with any and every color, while lengthening the leg for a flattering silhouette.

I prefer a block heel for a more comfortable fit, especially when it comes to weddings and parties!

Fit Tip: These are true to size

Ankle Strap Block Heels

These are the perfect heel height for being dressy, but still staying comfortable! I wear them with everything from casual dresses like this one, to the dressiest of dressy of styles. They’re pretty much my go-to wedding/dancing shoes!
