Gladiator Days

These crazy sandals are becoming an essential part of my spring/summer style. It's interesting the way a single accessory starts to reshape your style for a season. These are just such a nice switch from my usual ballet flat routine and make every outfit feel slightly more cool. This look is quite basic: a simple cardigan, a classic striped dress, and yet with these sandals it's elevated beyond a basic preppy style (thank goodness, I'm not a huge fan of looking preppy) into something else. One of my friends has been "daring" me to wear them out around town--as if I required more encouragement to wear something that makes me feel like a rockstar...
