This week, we have dipped into the triple digits here in Palm Springs… and the heat is just getting started! With summer coming up, finding lightweight shoes that are easy to slip on is essential to me. Living in the desert, there’s no need for extra discomfort since the heat alone can be quite draining. With that said, I’m excited to partner up with TOMS this season to share with you 3 of my favorite shoes from their line! I’ve always been a fan of TOMS and their #OneForOne mission, where they help children in need with each purchase. A little charity while shopping couldn’t hurt, right? By shopping with TOMS, I am assured that my purchase supports improved health, confidence building, and access to education for young children and underprivileged families. In addition to their philanthropic quest, I absolutely love that their shoes always give me maximum comfort without sacrificing style. And did I mention that their prices are very wallet-friendly? Each of the three shoes I got were well under $100!
BLACK CANVAS EMBROIDERY WOMEN’S LEXIE SANDALS
We all know that TOMS slip-ons are always fail-safe, but I’ve also been really loving some of their sandals lately. They are perfect for everyday wear wherever I’m headed. This pair of canvas embroidery sandals is no exception! Unlike many sandals in a similar style, these ones have a super soft in-sole designed to provide ample foot support and all-day comfort. I can explore downtown, run errands, and explore warm destinations in these without worrying about pain or discomfort. The embroidered strap adds a nice touch too! In short? My feet are happy in these!
BLUE SLUB CHAMBRAY WOMEN’S DECONSTRUCTED ALPARGATAS
My eyes are naturally drawn to all things chambray, so when I saw these slip-ons, I knew I had to have them! My style has been very laid back since moving to the desert because comfort is key in the scorching heat. Trust me, it becomes a bonus if you can walk out looking stylish in 100 degree weather! This pair is officially a “hot item” in my wardrobe as I manage to wear it with all sorts of things including dresses, rompers, and my everyday tee and shorts combo. The great thing about these shoes is that they come with a removable insole, with cotton twill sock liners. This helps to fight bacteria especially from sweat during the hot months. I don’t have to worry about having to wear my own slip-on socks or needing to wash the shoes to feel clean every time I wear them! The espadrille sole definitely completes the look and makes this pair the ultimate slip-on shoe for me.
TOFFEE SUEDE WOMEN’S HARPER PLATFORM WEDGES
Back in LA, I used to never walk out the door without some sort of heel on — whether it be wedges, stilettos, or block heels. The vibes here in Palm Springs are so different though. Everyone is laid back in their flip flops, tanning all day by the pool basically. With that said, I’ve been wearing sandals a lot more. These platform sandals are great for when I’m craving the little bit of height without sacrificing comfort. While they don’t make me 6 feet tall like my usual heels, I love them because I never worry about my feet feeling tired after walking in them all day. There are no awkward dips, and the suede is so soft — I forget that I’m even wearing slightly heavier shoes! Long story short, these solemates add an effortless finish to any outfit.
What are some of your favorite TOMS shoes this season?
