I hope the sunshine and warm weather have been coming out where you are; we’ve had some really nice days in New Jersey and I’m getting excited to break out the spring and summer shoes.
During my college and early career days, I hardly ever wore sandals (my feet are not the prettiest from years of dancing and running), but more recently I’ve fallen in love with them.
First off, it’s so much cooler to wear open-toed shoes and not have to wear socks in 90+ degrees. I also love sandals because there are so many fun styles that can really take an outfit to the next level.
If you’ve been following along on here or my Instagram, you probably know by now that I’m a bit shoe-obsessed. I haven’t actually counted how many pairs I own in a while, but I’d say it’s over 200.
As usual, I’ve been adding to my collection recently and I’ve found some really great spring and summer shoe options that I’m excited to share. A couple of these are from last year, but most are new.
Check them. out and. let me know which ones you’re loving! If you’re interested in where I got any of them, just click the picture or the caption and the retail site will open in a new tab.
These are one of my latest purchases and I’m so happy I decided to get them. They also come in black, but I thought the white was a nice color for the summer and I love the pretty chain detail along the band.
These are a slightly higher price point at $60 but still under $100 and they’re very well-made. I am definitely looking forward to wearing these all spring summer long.
I was a little skeptical of nude sandals last year, but I’m definitely on board this year! I love the quilted detail on these; it gives them a dainty look and makes them dress up the outfit they’re paired with.
I also like that these have a heel, but not too high of one. They don’t slide off your feet when you walk, so that’s definitely a plus, too. These pretty shoes are under $30 and ship free with Amazon Prime.
These sandals are a designer brand and more expensive, but they’re definitely one of my all-time favorites. I love the clean suede and leather combination, and especially love the gold C because it’s my last name initial.
These sandals are very comfortable and made with high quality materials. I got them on sale at RueLaLa; you need to make an account but it’s free and you get access to great designer sales!
I got these last year and wore them all summer long. I was so bummed that they sold out quickly, but they’re finally back in stock under the Madden Girl brand for $25! They’re exactly the same sho with the tan base, white band ,and pretty silver spikes all over.
These are a great casual shoe but also add a little bit of edge to your outfit. I’m. a big fan of spikes, so it’s no surprise that I’m obsessed with these.
This is a more formal style, but one of my goals this summer is to wear shoes like this more often, rather than saving them for events that have been few and far between lately.
I love the flower and pearl details along the strap of this shoe. The feminine details and dusty purple shade remind me so much of spring. If purple isn’t your color, these also come in pink and are under $100 (some sizes under $50).
This is probably one of the most “Insta-popular” pairs of shoes ever. The various of colors and patterns of these sandals are ALL over the internet and, to be honest, I can see why.
The classic design in simple yet functional, and the sandals are really well-made. I’ve had my white and yellow pairs for almost two years now, worn them over and over, and they still look brand new. They go for around $200 but can usually be found on sale for $120-$150.
These Medallion sandals are a great alternative to the Tory Burch Millers for a much lower price. Always under $50, and often under $30, these come in a ton of different colors and have a padded sole that’s very comfortable.
I have the dark brown shade of these and they match with almost everything. I wear them constantly and they, too, have held up super well for the past two years.
These sandals fit like flip flops and have awesome rock studs along the straps, very similar to the Valentino Garavani version. They also come to a bow at the front, which I love.
This is a simple shoe and is under $25 on Amazon Prime, so it’s a great way to achieve a luxe look for less. There are six different designs and colors available.
This is another one that might depend on the occasion, but I love this neutral heel. It’s a great closet staple to have and, like many other Sam Edelman shoes, includes a cushy sole for extra comfort.
These would be great for an outdoor summer event, a wedding, or even. to dress up a casual outfit for date night or lunch with the girls. These can be hard to find but are usually availablel on Amazon.
I wanted to try something different from the Millers, so I got this other cute Tory Burch sandal. I love the navy blue and green color combo, and the gold chain adds some nice sparkle to the top strap.
I like to style these sandals with more neutral outfits so that they stand out even more. Because of the brand name and quality they are a higher price point, but great quality.
These are my newest pair of sandals (they literally got delivered yesterday) and I’m already in love! I really like the satiny gathered fabric around the straps and the soft material that covers the rest of the shoe.
This is the perfect balance of dressy and casual; it’s a basic shoe with a comfortable fit but the shimmery material and kitten heel definitely make it fancier. It comes in three color options and is under $35.
Which of these sandals would you wear? Are there any not on this list that I should check out? Comment below to let me know!
As always, thank you so much for being here and I’ll be back to share more soon. 🙂 <3
