j.crew sandals

Sandal season is on the way. (I know it doesn’t feel like it outside, but March is sure to bring warmer temperatures.) As much as I love my Matilde boots (it’s the best not-quite-flat boot out there), I’m very much looking forward to the day when I will swap them out for a pair of sandals – preferably the new Maya sandals from J.Crew. I spotted them in the latest catalog, and I did something I never do: instead of simply ordering them online, I actually went into the store to try them on first. Just as I suspected, they’re perfect. Simple, but special – and oh, so comfortable. They’re the essential day-to-night flats (from the office straight to date night). They work for casual settings just as well as they do for something a little dressier. I love the nude color, but the silver is by far my favorite. It’s a shiny, spring sandal. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing those to plenty a cocktail party this spring – and summer, too!

(Side note: If you haven’t already checked out J.Crew’s newest arrivals, you really must do so. Things like this, this, and these have me so more anxious than ever for spring weather.)
