We are finally feeling sun upon our faces, and with Memorial Day Sales galore, it is definitely the time to go shopping for the summer but especially for sandals. I’m talking about the comfortable type you can go for long walks and do fun things such as farmer’s markets, the High Line in NYC, the beach, strolling the boardwalk, the botanical gardens, etc., etc. You get the idea.

In the Northeast, so far, our spring has not been fantastic is of course an understatement. During the last two weeks, we have experienced cold, crazy hot, or rainy days with a touch of ahhh…sun here and there. I’m especially cognizant of this fact since I have been standing outside on weekends watching my daughter partake in crew while it pours holding an umbrella in knee-deep mud. Fun times. Fun times.


Sahalie  Sandal

But now, let’s get excited thinking about discounts on sandal shopping. Checking out Sahalie online, I noticed Memorial Day sales- 30% off and free shipping through May 28- so if you want it, please don’t dawdle. These are called L’Artiste Caiman Trip Band Sandals and I especially love the floral embossed design, hand-painted leather, and unique color blocking ($100). There is a padded insole which makes it more cushy and comfortable than those sandals with the hard flat bottom which makes us all feel draggy after awhile.   

Franco Sarto Espadrilles

I adore the pattern on these 1-inch platform printed canvas espadrilles! The color of sunshine on these make me smile. Priced at $65 from Lord & Taylor and an extra 15% Memorial Day Discount make this even more attractive to buy.

Tory Burch Platform Sandals

These Tory Burch Camilla Sandals are just so awesomely cool looking. Yes, they are pricy at $279, but reduced from $398. These are investment pieces, however, and a sandal you can enjoy for many years as long as you try to take good care of them by not getting them drenched over and over again. I picture dressing up a solid maxi or sundress wearing these sandals and perhaps adding an accessory that grabs a color from the heel. These will also look fabulous with capris. Have fun shopping and take advantage of the sales!
