Sandals y’all. Writing about sandals…on a day with a high in the lower 60’s…oh, Portland. I’m wearing close toed shoes today, but against my will. Once I bring out the sandals my toes do not want to go back to being confined in regular shoes…especially when they are freshly pedicured!
For me, it’s all about finding the right nude/natural colored sandals and wearing the heck out of them for the summer. A nude sandal goes with everything and keeps my shorter legs looking long. My current loves are this pair by Matisse (pictured above, yes, in the rain). I love that they are handmade and the leather is breaking in oh so nicely.
Keep reading for a round-up of our favorite nude sandals (and the criteria we use to pick the best ones….think: walkable).
This is pretty much my guideline for any shoe, but it’s especially important with sandals. I have a bit of a funky foot shape (bunions, le sigh) and sandals are hard to fit, so I’m picky. Who wants a shoe that accentuates a problem area, makes it unflattering, is uncomfortable and is boring? No one. Here is my curated list of shoes that fit this tricky combination.

Also, don’t forget to hydrate those dry feet all summer long (it’s a pet peeve of mine to see dry heels in sandals!!) I love this lotion for ze whole body. Yes, it’s for babies, and yes I stole it from Sienna, but it’s French and I adore it.
Any favorite sandals? As per usual, I’d love to hear about your finds.
Here’s to free feet!
