Closed-Toe Sandals for When Your Pedi Isn’t Perfect

Thursday, July 12, 2018 • Permalink • 

Real world dilemma time. The weather, occasion, and ensemble of choice all scream “sandals.” But, your pedicure, or lack thereof, looks like you’ve been trekking barefoot through a Costa Rican jungle for three weeks. What do you do?

Enter the elusive closed-toe sandal. This wonderous hybrid shoe offers coverage for those parts of your foot most likely to look hideous if you’ve been slacking on your pedicure upkeep, but still feels light, airy, and summer-like. It can pair with a sundress without weighing down the look and make jeans vibe more warm weather appropriate.

The most common category of closed-toe sandal is the espadrille. Espadrille sandals come in a few varieties, but I’m partial to the mary jane style. It keeps both the heel and toe under wraps and it has that secure buckle closure. A close second would be the ankle-wrap style. It’s perfect for walking around in the grass.

The White Skirt You Never Knew You Needed

COS Wide-Elastic Cotton Skirt in White

I’ve never given much thought to adding a white skirt to my wardrobe, have you? I mean, it sounds kind of high maintenance. Uncomfortable. Hard to wear. Then I found this skirt over at favorite affordable store, COS. It solves all the big problems that come with putting a white skirt in rotation.

It’s machine washable, so you won’t spend and arm and a leg keeping it clean. It’s made from soft 100% cotton with a wide elastic waist and side slit, so it’s breathable and comfortable. And it has a built-in shorter lining hiding inside, so no worries about it being inappropriately transparent for real-life wear. And yet, it manages to look amazing. All minimalist and cool. I want to wear it with black Birks and a grey T by Alexander Wang tank. Can you picture it? It’s the white skirt you never knew you needed, but now can’t imagine doing summer without.

And it has pockets. ❤️

Sale: Ray-Ban Flat Top Sunglasses Under $100

Ray-Ban Flat-Top Square Sunglasses

Witness, the rare current-season sale on a wardrobe classic. Sale finds tend to fall into one of two categories: off-season merchandise (e.g., cashmere in July) or trendy items with questionable multi-season staying power (cold-shoulder top, anyone?). These sunnies are both on-point for the summer and a classic style that will serve you well for many years.

These flat-top Ray-Ban sunglasses are the cool younger cousin of the iconic Wayfarer, featuring gradient lenses with 100% UV protection set in square matte black plastic frames. Through July 11, they are marked an extra 30% the existing sale price, which makes for an especially great deal. Also through July 11, you can score $50 in Last Call cash by placing an order of $100 or more before sales tax. So many reasons to shop.
