slide show: a farewell to sandal weather

Happy Thursday, everyone! Sept. 14th is a new milestone in my life because today, I start my first full-time job. I'm both nervous & gracious to be employed. Wish me luck!

I thought today I would do something different on the blog. I noticed I've been doing a ton of skincare posts & sponsored content, so I want to step away from that and just show you my very minimalistic sandal collection that I have been rocking all summer. I'm so sad that I will have to place them on the backburner as the weather starts to cool down. 

If you haven't noticed already, I have a type. My favorite types of sandals are slides & mules. They give me that structure I crave in a simple outfit. So versatile, yet comfortable. The best part yet: all of these cost $20 or less!

I got the black slides at Forever 21 for about $17. They go with virtually every outfit I wear and make anything look super put together. There was a break-in period with these but after about a week, they were all good to go. I even walked around SF in these slides for a whole day and made am super happy to report that I made it back blister-free.

One of my favorite things to do at Urban Outfitters is raid the sale section. I was going through the shoe bin when I found these mauve twist slides. They are like a girlier version of the Birkenstocks because of the cushy bed and cost me $20. These slides are more on the casual side. It took me awhile to get used to the clunkiness, but they look really great when paired with mom jeans or cuffed skinnies.

The last pair of sandals I want to show you guys today is these corked block heel mules from Unisa. I stumbled upon these when I went to Marshall's with my boyfriend to buy dress shirts & let me tell you, they are the most comfortable pair of heels I have ever worn. I didn't even need to break them in. The heel is low enough to give me just a bit more height without putting a strain on my arches. The fawn color of the suede material at the top and the cork wood on the heels also add a natural edge to the mule which I am crazy about.

I hope I will be able to wear these slides a few more times before fall really kicks in. 

Until next time, Megan.
