I’ve always been a chunky heel kind of girl, even with summer sandals. Yes, even my Tevas have a platform. But I have come to the realization they’re just not that practical for me, and well, comfortable, at least over long periods of time. That’s why I’m jumping head first into this whole embellished slide sandal trend that I think gives you the pop of a heel, but in the comfort of a flat. And I just love how they add a hint of fun to my summer outfit: white t-shirt and jeans (or shorts).
And what a coincidence! It’s Nordstrom’s big half-yearly sale, so that means you can score a sweet deal on a sweet pair of sandals. Or, maybe a couple if the price is right.
Here are a bunch of my favorites that I’m crossing my fingers are in my size. And yours too?

These Jeffrey Campbell rose gold slides are super versatile, and perfect for the person who wants a little bump of embellishment. ($48.71, 25% off original price)
I’ve never owned a pair of Sam Edelman shoes that I haven’t loved. I’m guessing these studded slides would be no exception. ($69.96, 30% off original price)
How fun are these Steve Madden dazzle slides? Pretty cool way to take the ubiquitous black athletic slide and turn it into a pretty stylish sandal. ($41.96, 40% off original price).
These Louise Et Ci espadrille slides are so summery! And as someone who can never get espadrilles to stay on, these slides are a fantastic alternative. ($59.37 40% off original price)
So these aren’t the most practical sandals ever, but I couldn’t resist sharing these Badgley Mischka slides. They’re just so much fun. Look at that heel. I’m in love. ($99-118, up to 50% off)
So, these 3.1 Philip Lim slides are pricey, but man, I can see myself wearing these every single day of the summer. The chainlink is hot. ($176.98, 40% off original price)
