Zara is the bomb right now!  This take on the black & white trend is especially great–not to mention, the entire look (sans bag) is under $200!

9 Summer Sandals Under $100

I’ve been on the hunt for some new summer footwear for quite some time.  Actually, on the hunt for two types of sandals: (1) one flat pair conducive for all-day blister-free wear, and (2) one with some height, ideally a modest wedge that has a real heel but is still low enough to actually walk in (actually being the operative word).   This post is dedicated to the former.  (Don’t worry, there will be a post dedicated to wedges too…)

I’ve been stalking these ankle strap sandals from Zara for a while now.  Offered in hot pink and silver, the only thing better than the fabulous colors is the price tag.  $49.90 at Zara.

 

Zara always has great shoe finds and these nude pointy flats are no exception.  The closed toe makes them a great option for work as well.  $49.90 here.  These nude thong sandals from DV by Dolce Vita are also a great versatile option that can easily be dressed up.  $69.00 at Piperlime.  Note: reviews say they run a tad large so size down.

Building on the neon trend, these nude and pink sandals from Topshop are one of my favorites, such a great buy at $56.  These thong sandals by Seychelles are also super cute.  $70 at Piperlime.

Low heels are popping up everywhere.  This gilded option by Sam Edelman is a nice adaptation.  $99 at Nordstrom.

J.Crew’s Audra sandal for $98 is a no-brainer as are these cross strap sandals from DV by Dolce Vita, available for $69.00 at Endless.  I actually tried on the DV sandals and they are uber comfortable, but they ran a touch wide on me so I passed (I have pretty narrow feet).

Animal prints are basically a neutral, especially when they’re offered in a classic thong style like these by Sam Edelman.  Take a cue from Olivia Palermo and pair them with florals and prints.   $65 at Endless.
