One more kid in school – he has two finals tomorrow and that will be a wrap for everyone’s school year in our house! The last week our college girl has moved back home for the summer, our middle son graduated from high school and our youngest has 2 more finals and will be done with school for the year. I am slowly getting used to having a full house again and have decided I will probably be making a trip to the grocery store almost every day this summer! 🙂
But let’s talk about the simplicity and comfort of slide sandals!! When it comes to summer footwear, slide sandals are all that plus so cute! I love t-strap sandals and wedges are so fun to wear but there’s just nothing more wearable than an easy slide-on choice. When buying sandals this summer, prioritize purchasing a slide and see your investment have a MAJOR return on number of wears! 🙂
Here are my five favorite slides for this summer:
Most of my favorite sandals are by Sam Edelman – I just love how comfortable and cute they are and I have found they hold up really well through the years.
This cutout style slide is a fresh, new style and comes in so many colors – I am a sucker for pink and in the summer I think of it as a neutral but check out all the other great colors.
Jack Rogers sandals have been around forever – Jackie O. made them famous in 1960. The thong-style Jack Rogers is a classic but now they have the cutest slide sandal that screams summer! This slide is super comfortable and fits true to size and I love the specks of bright colors that are woven into this sandal.
OK, so I am really going back in time but I seriously love these Original Collection Wooden slides!! They are just like I remember as a kid – comfortable and noisy and oh so fun to wear. Every time I wear them I get compliments and people remembering their first pair. It’s amazing that we used to buy these in our Woolworth store for a few bucks and now it’s Nordstroms – oh how things have changed. 🙂 There are lots of colors to chose from just don’t confuse these with the “classic” style – that is rubber soled and no toe grip – you want the “original” style.
I love mine, they will just make you so happy and they still look cute with everything!
One more slide from Sam Edelman . . . the Gio Slide sandal. What makes this sandal comfortable so is the wide strap and once again there are lots of colors and prints to choose from. They fit true to size and I love wearing them with jeans. 🙂
Okay, so I am so not a Birkenstock girl . . . at all!! But I know a good thing when I see it and if you are heading to a pool, beach, lake or boat then you need these waterproof (yes, they float) these under $40.00 Birkenstock slides! We aren’t necessarily going for style with these ones but your feet will be so happy, they are super lightweight with tons of support and seriously they are the best around the water. Who knows they could quickly become your favorite sandal of the summer. 🙂
I love the pink but they also come in white, black, navy, and gray
That’s my slide wrap-up . . . do you have a favorite summer sandal? Remember the key is comfort and simplicity plus cuteness and versatility!
