why I love it: Neon yellow, gold hardware and simple design all in one comfortable, affordable shoe? On sale? Almost too good to be true. Almost. During a recent shopping trip, the retail karma gods* smiled down on me. I had been obsessively looking for a versatile pair of flat sandals for weeks, and to no avail. Thanks to the sudden 80 degree weather, I was reaching new levels of desperation. That's when I spotted these buried under piles of other shoes at the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale. The perfect blend of trendy (hello, neon) and classic (hello, sophisticated gold hardware), I can already tell these sandals will get me through summer. Plus, they can really be worn with anything: I'm thinking maxi skirts, sun dresses, shorts, jeans, pajamas... the possibilities are endless.
Thanks, retail karma gods!
where to get it: Dolce Vita, $69 (also on sale at Nordstrom now for $45!)
*The retail karma gods are for sure a real thing. That's why you should always be super nice to salespeople, put the clothes you try on back on the hanger, pick up anything you drop and re-fold any Gap-perfect t-shirt piles you might mess up. You'll be rewarded, I promise.
