Can you believe it? May is slipping by and we are heading into the summer! I am located in St. Thomas and here in the Virgin Islands, we basically have one season: HOT! Sandals are always piled in front of the closet. When you think of sandals you may think of sandal flats, but sandals come in the form of platforms, wedges, high heels, etc. In a technical sense, these are all sandals.
I’m sure many of you own pairs and pairs of sandals and know ALL about them. However, as always, I’m here to give you some styling options for rocking these shoes. Because we are in a time of the thrifty and frugal, I will provide you with examples of affordable and inexpensive sandals for the summer that will have you looking your best, for less.
The Meet Up
The first pair of shoes are platform sandals from Payless. You can purchase these sandals HERE and the best part is that they are only $24.99! Talk about a score! I call this look ”The Meet Up.” Summer is the time for a lot of natural gatherings, workshops, and meet ups and this is the perfect look for you! You will be stuntin’ in this 70′s inspired get up which features the popular pleated midi. If you didn’t know, pleats are also very popular this season.
I call this look “Neon Summer.” You may or may not know that neon pinks, greens, and blues are popping up everywhere and you don’t want to be caught behind the curb. For some, this outfit may be a little “out there,” but play with colors, patterns, and textures this season. This look is sure to get you some attention so hop down to Target and purchase these babies now ! At $29.99, you can’t lose.
Get in the summer mood with “Picnic Lover.” You can replicate this look for a romantic picnic with the hubby/boo thang or a day out with the girls. For those of you who love flat sandals as much as I do, set your eyes on these puppies. Get them NOW just in time for the summer! For just $49.95 at DSW, they can be all yours!
The last look is called “Grease Lightning,” inspired by the pink ladies of Grease. For the price of $100, Aldo has just what you need to top this look off. I told you guys I was trying to step up my hair accessory game. Be beautiful ladies, be fierce!
Summer is definitely the time of the year to get those feet out! Don’t forget to keep them pedicured to accentuate the beauty of your inexpensive, yet fabulous finds!
