What’s summer without the perfect sandals? We all have sandals we wear around the house or to the grocery store, but we wouldn’t be caught wearing them to a nice lunch. Although everyone may have different opinions about particular styles, I’m sure we all agree that finding the right pair of nice scandals is essential for fashionable summer attire. Furthermore, I’m sure we all agree that finding a comfortable and stylish pair, is a double bonus, so this article features both comfortable and stylish pairs.

One of my favorite fun brands is Vince Camuto because Camuto’s brand always follows both stylish and color trends. These sturdy sandals come in a couple colors and the beadwork gives it an alluring look. This brand is fun, feminine, and will keep your feet in place to help you cover some serious ground while looking fabulous.

My favorite comfortable shoe brand is from Stuart Weitzman. I think this tassel flat sandal is unbelievably chic. This comes in a few color options that all pair beautifully with a maxi dress and will still look appropriate with a fancy dress. These flats can definitely keep up with a nice outfit, and you don’t have to be worried about looking underdressed!

Get naughty in these Naughty Monkey shoes! I love the braided rope footbed and the side sweep design with jewels. This is a decadent style for the summer. Braid your hair to match this girly, hippie shoe and enjoy every step along the way.

For the gals who won’t leave the house without wearing sandals that make them look like a queen, then Mystiqe sandals are always for you. Every year I feature a pair of these because they’re always bedazzled and last a while. Trust me, I have a turquoise pair that I have had for years and they still rock. Check out this coral and multi colored one. This one has a small wedge heel for the shorter ladies who are afraid to showcase their real heights. Gold and coral are perfect colors to go with the sun kissed summer tan.
