While summer is the best time to indulge in flip flops of all colors, textures, & materials, the season’s go-to shoe is always a sandal, which includes any kind of mostly open shoe. Lately, sandals have been all over: with wedge heels, block heels, platform heels, as mules, as ankle strap, as slingback, & more. In celebration of summer sandals with still so much of July & all of August ahead of us, here’s to some recent picks–all marked down with limited availability–of summer sandal must-haves.
When thinking of a patterned shoe, gingham screams summer, calling for a white eyelet dress, linen blend romper, or blouse & shorts look. If you like gingham, like in the sandals below, check out my recent gingham post featuring items from Old Navy!

Braided sandals are another major shoe trend this season, which offers a playful, sophisticated way to dress up any casual look or maxi dress, especially when wanting to expand the color palette of your ensemble.
SHOP: braided slip-on sandals (available in 4 colors, sizes 5-10, $17.99) @Forever 21.
