A roundup of office-appropriate summer sandals

Find, $11

Allow me to have a Mommie Dearest moment: NO MORE FLIP FLOOOOOOPS! I’m putting a plea out there to just say no to flip flops in the workplace (unless you’re a lifeguard). I walked around town to see what other chic sandal options are out there and lucky for you, they abound! Here are a few styles in town that you’ll want to wear at work and right into the weekend.

Above / A great pair of vintage Huaraches at Find in a size 9  Below / A tropical-themed pair from Urban Outfitters – with a slight wedge to give it a dressier feel

Urban Outfitters, $29

Below / Green leather straps from Mexicali Blues add a little pop of color to your daily commute

Mexicali Blues, $15

 Below / If you want to splurge on a good pair of sandals, you can’t go wrong with these Danskos from J.L. Coombs especially if you’re looking for a walkable wedge

J.L.Coombs, $115

Below / In the spirit of “research”, I took home this pair of Pons from Portland Trading Company. I loved them so much I walked out of the store with them and haven’t taken them off since. Can’t recommend these enough!

Portland Trading Company, $89

Have you bought a great pair of sandals somewhere in town lately? Please share!
