The Must-Have Sandals for Summer 2018
Summer is the best time to slow down, relax and get comfortable. And I'm not just talking about sitting with your toes in the sand at the beach with a fruity cocktail in your hand. (Although, that is the absolute BEST thing to do in summer. Fact!). I'm also talking about clothing and footwear. I don't know about you, but I want everything to be easy breezy in this heat, and that includes my style. All I want to put on my body are breathable fabrics like linen and cotton, and cute summer dresses. With that, I want to be able to just slip on a simple, yet chic, sandal when I leave the house.
This season, sleek slide sandals are extremely popular, and I'm here for it! What's easier than literally having to slide your foot into a sandal. Minimum effort, maximum comfort! Simple, classy slide sandals are all over the place at the moment, so we've decided to round up some of our favorite tan sandals that will suit every budget. The key is to go for a pair that will go with most of your summer outfits, that way you don't have to put too much thought into it.
Tip: Get a pair of sandals that match your most worn summer bag, that way you can basically wear this combo with any outfit. For us, it's been tan sandals, as it goes with all of our beloved summer bags and baskets.
Zara Leather Crossover sandals
These beautiful Zara sandals have been so popular this past season, and Tieneke raves about their comfort and that they go with all of her summer outfits. The sandal has a pretty crossover detail, adding an interesting, yet uncomplicated, element to a simple tan sandal. We wear our slide sandals with dresses, shorts, jeans and jumpsuits; it's incredibly versatile.
They are true to size, affordable, and very comfortable to walk in. You can still find them in stores and also online, so don't even think twice about getting a pair. Bonus! They come in four different colors; tan, yellow, red and blue.

Hermès Oran sandals
I'm not exaggerating when I say that I've wanted these beauties for years. I've lusted after them for so long, but could not justify the (very) hefty price tag. The Hermès Oran sandals are iconic and classic, and I knew I'd be able to wear them for many summers to come. I was about to give up on my dream of owning a pair of my own, until The Husband very generously gifted them to me for our fourth wedding anniversary this year. They are everything, and more, I thought they'd be.

They are true to size and don't slip off when you're walking. If you've been thinking about investing in a pair, I can highly recommend them!
