This is the mood of a mom who’s down to the last week of school drop off, activity chasing and corralling the circus into the car every morning. Looking forward to a massive life slow down, taking our time getting up in the morning and of course an easy, breezy summer wardrobe. I’ve been living in these comfy leather slides from Steve Madden, a faux version of the Hermés Oran sandal. I tend to go back and forth with the whole designer versus dupe shoe situation. I know in reality I am not lounging poolside all summer. My lifestyle is chasing kids around the beach, parks, and every other place that will beat the shoe up and spit them out, so this time I went with the lookalike.
Heat has arrived in Seattle, so I am not the only mama trading her chunky sneakers in for sleek slides, ankle strap sandals and studded thongs. I know that keeping up with trends or even refreshing basics in your current closest can be overwhelming and sometimes intimidating, especially with fashion movements weaving in and out of seasons. Deciding on an everyday sandal can be a grind even for the professional shopper. So whether you are willing to splurge on those new studded Valentino thongs or prefer a modest alternative, I’ve compiled a list of this summer’s top trending styles that are sure to keep you chic and comfortable at the pool, chasing the kiddos, or busing them to camp because we all need that, too.
