Budget-Friendly Buy: H&M Sandals to Scoop Up for Under $40

When it comes to the ideal summer sandal, comfort is key. I’m a fan of a neutral sandal that doesn’t have any ties around the ankle. One of my favorite brands is Ancient Greek Sandals because they have so many pretty natural colors and styles. Unfortunately, they’re not very budget-friendly.

So when it comes to trying out bright colors and new trends, I love H&M sandals. They won’t break the bank and are always on trend so you don’t feel guilty for buying more than one pair.

Check out the latest sandals I’m eyeing below – I just ordered the red bow ones – and start shopping before they’re gone!

There’s something about woven shoes that’s caught my attention. My love of woven shoes might have stemmed from seeing these Paul Andrews flats on Instagram during fashion week last year. Ever since, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair.

Obsessing over these Paul Andrews Dagmar flats

I recently bought these from Zara and can’t wait to wear them with dresses and jeans. They’re almost like a woven ballerina flat. I also ordered these Freda Salvador flats on sale after eyeing them for months.

& Other Stories Lands in Los Angeles

Finally! & Other Stories, one of my favorite brands, has landed in Los Angeles on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. Conveniently located across the street from COS, & Other Stories is part of the H&M brand group (as well as COS). The style feels more European and the brand is “built around fashion stories.” So far there are two stores in California (including the OC) and three in NYC. You can also conveniently shop the brand online. And don’t forget to check out their beauty section – they have a large selection that includes makeup, lotions and even candles. Check out some of my favorite pieces below and be sure to stop by the store if you’re in the area. The outside of the building is gorgeous.
