Must Haves: 20 “Comfort Sandals” That Don’t Look Like Comfort Sandals

After breaking my foot, I’ve had to rethink my summer shoe wardrobe. My closet consists of strappy heels I can’t walk in, T-strap flat sandals I wear every day, flip-flops, and gym sneakers. After breaking my foot, I need to avoid my heels, flip flops, and flimsy sandals for something with more support. At the moment, I am living in canvas sneakers, but I hope to trade them in for sandals. The problem? My doctor recommended I purchase “comfort sandals.”

Take a minute to Google “comfort sandals.” Are you seeing what I’m seeing, i.e. the ugliest selection of shoes for 90-year-old women? No disrespect to Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia, but I cringe at the idea of being a Golden Girl before 30. Where are the cute comfort sandals? After a week of searching, here is a comprehensive shopping guide to the cutest comfort sandals available. You’re welcome.

Must Haves: 10 Split-Back Tops

The best part of the split-back trend in blouses is that there’s such variety. You can find them in 14-inch long splits that expose the entire back to 5-inch long splits flashing just a little skin. You can wear them solo, or layer them with other tops to create your own look. Start clicking and get inspired to try this trend.

Must Haves: 10 Beach Totes & Towel Combos

Summer is in full swing and I don’t know about you, but I pack for the beach like I pack for a mini vacation. A beach tote is essential, and must be large enough to carry my towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, beverage, brush, and a change of clothes, but adorable enough to carry around town. In addition, a big, can’t-miss-it beach towel is key. After a long walk on the beach, your unique towel is the only identifier of your spot — plus, don’t you want one you can wear like a sarong?

Succulents are low maintenance plants that provide owners the illusion of a green thumb. Unlike more temperamental plants, succulents simply need a few hours of sunlight and a bit of water. Because these plants have shallow roots, the planter possibilities are endless! The hardest part is picking which pot to plant yours in…

Hi/Lo: Flat Sandals For Summer

I’m sad. After years of depending on J. Crew’s Capri flip-flop as my go-to summer sandal, the company went and broke what was already perfect by pushing out a new version with slightly thicker straps and this weird supportive thingy on the heel. The difference between the old and new versions is marginal but noticeable and just decidedly not the same. As a creature of habit, this is upsetting. Don’t fuck with my summer shoe game, J. Crew! I guess this means I’m in the market for a new summer sandal, but where to start? I know! With absurdly expensive designer pairs and their affordable alternatives!

One Chambray Jumpsuit, Three Ways

I recently bought a slouchy chambray jumpsuit and I have been living in it ever since. Its lightweight fabric makes it perfect for summer and I’m convinced it’s not just for lazy days — it can be dressed up for a hot date and styled to be appropriate for work. To show just how versatile this piece can be — and why you should add one to your wardrobe — here are three ways to a chambray jumpsuit.

Compassionate Fashion: 10 Eco-Friendly Summer Shoes From Timberland

I’ve found that it’s surprisingly easy to find clothing and accessories that are up to ethical and sustainable standards, but when it comes to shoes, the pickings are few and far between. There’s certainly stylish, handcrafted, responsibly sourced footwear out there — if you’re willing to spend a minimum of $300 on a pair of shoes — but if your budget is closer to $100 or less, your options dwindle to recycled yoga mat flip flops or … well, that’s pretty much it. Timberland is working to change that with their Earthkeepers line. Made using recycled materials and sourced from factories and tanneries that have shown a commitment to the environment, Earthkeepers are stylish, high quality shoes that you can feel good about buying and wear for years to come. I’m particularly enamored by their summer collection of sandals and espadrilles. Click through to check out 10 of my faves!
