10th Commandment: April 25

Apr 25, 2014

Even though it is barely 40-degrees in Montana, I have hope that it will one day be warm enough to wear sandals.

Steve Madden Kroatia Sandal ($49)

These sandals are a Goldilocks-mix of neutral, classic and casual.  They would look great with any summer ensemble you can create.  If you have you have a brown/tan sandal, this shape also comes in an interesting mix of metallics and a cognac and black combo.

I like sandals that mix neutrals with metallics so this pair from Paolo Bentini in beige/silver and this pair from Ivanka Trump in a gold/brown both caught my eye.  I think a bit of metallic is a great way to brighten up a boring sandal.  If you want all metallic, try these Dolce Vita Abley sandals or these silver Vince Camuto Evora sandals.

Lastly, while I don’t usually like TOMS shoes, these sandals in a cognac and denim color combination look like a great casual shoe to wear with white shorts and an oxford shirt or while strolling the boardwalk.

    I’ve had my eye out for some silver sandals for a while now. Thanks for the links.

  2. Those sandals are beautiful. A little more than I like to pay for shoes that have to be thrown out at the end of summer (due to the grossness that is DC sidewalks), but definitely beautiful.

  3. Anne says:

    Beware! Rant ahead. But it seems absolutely obscene to pay over $50 for a pair of sandals with $3.50 of materials and a dollar or two of labor in them that will only last the summer (like my Dolce Vita ones did last year). I had a beautiful pair of sandals I bought in Italy that lasted over ten years, but they were nothing like these cheap things, and I sure as heck didn’t pay more than $50 for them. It seems that our obsession with fast fashion has overridden our good sense.

  4. Christina says:

    I’ve actually had incredibly good luck with Steve Madden sandals. Every pair I have had has lasted at least two or three summers of intense city walking.

      I’ve had pretty good luck with my Steve Madden flats. I wore a gold pair for two years of almost daily wear, nine months per year.

I will probably not open Instagram for the next two days. The Prime Day madness is just too thick. 90% of the items being promoted are things that I’ll throw away in two months (or less). But there are a handful of things I will use and are grateful to grab at a discount, here […]
