Summer Slides

My favorite footwear trend this year is definitely the slide. While I’m not crazy about the Birkenstock-style looks that have become almost ubiquitous (I can’t get the college-town hippie vibe out of my head), a simple, leather slide in a neutral color looks so elegant and relaxed. It is a great substitute for flip-flops, too, because it feels even more comfortable and easy while looking about 100 times more put together! Here are some of my favorite affordable picks:

I snagged the Madewell Sightseer Slide in Warm Sand when they were running a sale about a month ago, and I’ve probably worn them 5 times a week since. They are so comfortable, and they look good with almost everything in my closet. Such an easy choice when I have five minutes to get ready before G does something crazy like eating the toothpaste.
