two sandals i’m wearing non-stop this summer

When it comes to spring and summer style, you’ll almost always find me in one of two pairs of shoes… a pair of strappy sandals, or a pair of fabulous summer wedges!

Between these two staples, I can cover just about every summer festivity in the books. This year, I found my two pairs of go-to-shoes at my favorite shoe department ever, Nordstrom!

Here’s the best part… they’re both under $100, comfortable, and oh-so-versatile. Let’s dive in, shall we?!

my summer shoe staples

Pair No. One // Steve Madden Susana Espadrille Wedge Sandal

Behold… the perfect summer wedge! First and foremost, let’s talk about the scallop detailing. So adorable, right? And subtle enough that you can wear these wedges with any ensemble.

I’m super picky when it comes to wedge “proportions,” and love that this pair gets the heel and platform height just right. There’s nothing more classic (or more perfect for summer) than a traditional espadrille!

Finally, I’m happy to report that these babes are so comfortable! The platform beneath the toe, the ankle strap, and the width of the material across the ball of the foot all make this wedge super secure and perfect for sporting all summer long.

The Steve Madden Susana Espadrille Wedge fits true to size, is currently available in all sizes and comes in tan as well as black. I can’t wait to wear these all season long, and well into fall, y’all. The faux suede makes them a great transition piece from summer to autumn!

You can grab them at the Nordstrom shoe department here!

Pair No. Two // Soludos Madrid Sandal

Since sandals are everywhere this season, I’ve had the flexibility to be super picky in finding my go-to summer pair! When I spotted these Madrid Sandals by Soludos, I was instantly sold.

Gold has always been my absolute favorite sandal shade, but I’ve always found it difficult to find the perfect iteration of it! When the hue is just right, a gold sandal is instantly flattering and effortlessly versatile. This pair checks off all those boxes, and then some!

Since there are so many slide sandal styles out this season, I was thrilled to come across an actual strappy pair. The combination of the toe strap, diagonal braid across the foot and ankle strap make this sandal such a flattering and elongating style. It looks adorable paired with everything from jeans to dresses!

Again, a main priority for me, comfort level., is 100% there with this cute sandal. I’d say the first time you put them on, you notice the toe strap… but not in a bad way. After that initial wear, you forget it’s even there!

The Soludos Madrid Sandal fits true to size, is currently available in all sizes and comes in gold as well as tan. I’m trying to decide if I should splurge on the tan as well for the honeymoon… it’s so perfect!

My sister tried to steal them from me this weekend, so you know they’re good. You’ll find them at the Nordstrom shoe department, here!

A fabulous pair (or two) of go-to summer sandals is essential, and I’m so happy to have found these at Nordstrom! Don’t forget, shipping and returns are always free, which makes shoe hunting so much better. See all of their adorable new styles here!
