Spend, Save, Splurge: Summer Sandals

We’ve been having an unusually mild spring here in Philly, and I’m not mad about it.

In anticipation of sandal weather, I’ve got a spend/save/splurge roundup with the season’s best sandal trends along with some of my favorite classics for your shopping inspiration!

Spend, Save, Splurge: Summer Sandals

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten // eleven // twelve

Conventional wisdom suggests that we spend or splurge on items we will wear a lot and the classic pieces want to have in our wardrobe for many years, and save on the trendier styles that we may only wear a few times or tire of quickly.

Personally, I tend to buy most of my shoes in the spend or splurge categories. I appreciate a good quality shoe, and I find the comfort worth paying a little more for, but there are certainly times when it makes sense to save.

Of course we all have different budgets to work with, so I’m using a wide scale here. Hopefully there’s a little something for everyone!

It’s pretty easy to find cute sandals under $50, as they don’t require as much material as boots and sneakers. I rounded up a bunch that I’ve tried recently as well as a few more that I think look good.

SPEND: $50 – $150

I feel like this price range is the sweet spot between quality and value, and I could have easily added another 20 pairs to this section. There are sooo many adorable sandals out there right now in this price range, I finally had to make myself stop adding to this widget.

I tried to get a good mix of flats and heels, and I also threw a few comfort styles in there for those who need them.

Also, don’t forget that Bloomingdale’s is running a “private sale” through 4/29/19!

SALE ALERT >> Take $25 off every $100 you spend at Bloomingdale’s on regular price items labeled “PRIVATE SALE SAVINGS WITH CODE: PRIVATE” . On almost everything else, Loyallists get a $25 Reward Card for every $100 spent. This offer is valid on items labeled “LOYALLIST POWER POINTS.”

The Bloomies sale includes almost all Sam Edelman, Stuart Weitzman, Marc Fisher, and Tory Burch. (Most Millers are part of the Loyallist Power Points offer, but a few colors qualify for the $25 off every $100.)

SPLURGE: $150+

My favorite shoe brands to splurge on are Tory Burch and Stuart Weitzman. I could have filled this entire section with the Stuart Weitzman Spring Collection because I love every. single. one.

I also threw in a few luxury designer brands like Gucci and Jimmy Choo, but honestly, I think you can get the same comfort and quality in some of the lower priced designer brands.

I hope this post was helpful! Do you have any of these? Which ones would you recommend?
