If there is one thing I can’t get enough of this summer (besides watermelon, the beach and the return of Arrested Development) it is strappy, high-heeled sandals. The simple silhouette is so in line with my minimalist, clean personal style. Plus, they literally look great with just about everything. From a short skirt and crop top, like this Fashionista, to the contrast of them with jeans and a white T-shirt, I want to live in strappy, high-heeled sandals all day, every day.
As of late, I feel like all my downtime is spent scoping/shopping/dreaming of my favorite strappy sandals online. So I figured I would dedicate this post to all my favorites I have been lusting over as of late.
- Rochas: The thin straps and reasonable chunky heel make me reminisce of my very first pair of heels in the most endearing way. Clearly, my taste hasn’t strayed too much since I was 12-years-old, as I still am lusting over this pair today.
- Alexander Wang: While the silhouette of these sandals are simple, the snake embossed white leather and padded straps add a great deal of interest to these amazing shoes.
- Steve Madden: As if the name of this style, “Realove,” doesn’t say enough, the neon yellow of this shoe has me crushing so hard. It is the perfect pop of color. I dream of wearing these with distressed, boyfriend jeans during the day.
- Zara: Every blogger has been spotted this budget-friendly yet ultra-chic pair of strappy sandals as of late. Needless to say, I want them even more now.
- Rebecca Minkoff: The hints of celadon and coral mixed in with the tan make these the ultimate beach vacation sandals. The minimalist silhouette and color palette will look great against sun-kissed skin.

Spotted: My favorite pair of strappy sandals of all time are this pair, first spotted at Prada’s spring 2012 resort collect. I spent hours tracking them down (and a nice chunk of my savings), but they are so worth it. All in the name of fashion, right?
