This season, designers are elevating the humble sandal to… ART!

Elevating the humble sandal

Leather shoes

Flat sandals

Antik Batik flat sandals


Whether you choose cork-soled platforms, funky wedges, or utilitarian rubber flip flops, the sandal is an indispensable part of every woman’s wardrobe once temperatures begin to rise. For me, simple slide and thong sandals are my go-to footwear every summer.

I love the ease and the comfort that simple sandals provide. And, this year, I also love the style!

Sandals may be a simple choice for the summer of 2014, but choosing from among the gorgeous offerings from my favorite designers is anything but easy. Emblazoned with gryphons, embellished with gems, or sporting enormous sea life, this season’s crop of footwear is pure art.

I’ve showcased a few to-die-for pairs above. But, you can also find gorgeous new sandals from Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Lucky, American Rag, and Madden Girl at Macy’s. Or, visit Nordstrom for a fabulous selection including some must-haves from Michael Kors, Sam Edelman, and Tory Burch.
