The beach is probably one of my favorite places. Okay, actually, the beach is most definitely my favorite place. The warm sand between my toes, the relaxing sounds of the waves crashing, the smell of the salty air…ahhhh, the combination is intoxicating to think about. There’s just one problem: I’m completely land-locked. Yep, smack dab in the very center of the very middle of the Midwest (insert tears streaming down the face emoji here). And this means I only get to visit the beach maybe once or twice a year…if I’m lucky. To tide me over (pun intended) until I can visit the beach again, I’m majorly crushing on summer sandals in sea-colored hues.
Really Feeling this Floral
First up, the Sunday sandal from Fergalicious in a perfectly summery blue and mint floral print. I love the delicious mix of blue and green tones in this subtle pattern. Don’t let this print intimidate you—this beauty pairs well with outfits of all varieties. You can match one of the blues or greens in the floral print or pair it with a neutral toned outfit or mix with a larger scale pattern, like black and white stripes.
Swooning Over Seafoam
Next up, the Madden Girl Triixie in a soft seafoam green. This embellished flat sandal really conjures up visions of the sea with its calming, cool color and glittering clear jewels. These gems can add polish to a casual outfit or dress down a more buttoned-up look.
Mad About Mint
And finally the mint Circus by Sam Edelman Cayden shows off my all-time favorite sea-inspired hue. There’s something about this bright, refreshing color that just makes me happy inside! And this simple flat sandal style goes great with all your summer wardrobe staples—shorts, skirts, maxi dresses—bring it on!
