You guys probably know by now that I'm summer's biggest fan. I love everything about summertime, from the food and drinks to the parties and road trips to the dresses and shoes (sandals!). Although the season of sunshine will draw to a close in a few short weeks, I'm still in sandal-shopping mode. The thing about sandals is that they're the perfect kicks to have on hand year-round, regardless of where you live or what you plan to do. Taking a warm-weather vaca in the middle of winter? You're going to need a fun pair of sandals. Working around your house, garden, or yard? Flip flops are key. In the mood to show off your new pedicure (regardless of the weather)? You have to sport a cute pair of sandals. Planning an end-of-summer outdoor bash? Sandals are a hostess's ultimate casual shoe. And of course, during the months of May through September, the sandal is the star of the show for the everyday. If you have a few pairs of chic sandals, you're pretty much set in terms of shoes during these months, no matter what you're wearing on top.
While searching for a new pair of casual, end-of-summer sandals the other day (when you're pregnant, comfy + stylish feet are pretty important; trust me), I spent some time on Reef's website. It had been a while, and I'm so glad I paid them another visit. I bought my first pair of Reefs (a pair of vibrant red flip flops) for my first trip to Costa Rica, exactly ten years ago, and I was hooked. I wore them on the beach, to dinner, exploring new towns, even hiking. Their shoes last forever, they're supportive, and most importantly, their styles are really cute. I have a few pairs of dressier sandal styles, but I'm thinking that a more casual pair is in order right now, and it looks like Reef is the winner. I'm leaning toward either the Moonlight Palms Sandals (#1) or the Reef Bright Nights (#3). But I'm secretly in love with all of the styles I posted above and can't quite make a final decision.
What about you? Are you on Team Sandal when it comes to the perfect shoes? What's your favorite casual sandal brand? (And thanks again to Reef for teaming up with me on this post!)
