I was in the Hamptons yesterday looking at retail space for one of my clients (by the way it was in the 40's...WTF?) and decided to do a little summer weekend hunting to continue my quest for my must-haves.
Calypso is of course every girl's summer go to, but is perhaps lesser known for their shoe selection. Yes, we all own their metallic flip flops and swear by them, but this season they are bringing us what I think is one of the best sandals I have seen yet, the Monica Sandal. It is a snakeskin embossed gladiator that rivals the competition. The design is fab...clean and simple with a subtle tie back. I hate the overdone gladiator look that is just a wee bit too aggressive for my girly side...this sandal is the perfect combo of this harder trend and feminine, every day chic!!! They are $195, which yes, may be a bit pricey, but I promise they are well made and beyond comfortable. They only come in Sand online, but in store you can find them in other colors as well (Turquoise is hands down my favorite).
The Monica Sandal is so versatile that honestly you can wear them with EVERYTHING...no style tips required. It looks like the weather is looking up for the Memorial Day weekend (fingers crossed), so don't wait until July to indulge!!!
