The latest sandal trend involves a closed heel with a thong toe and has entirely captivated my imagination, especially when composed of a delicious, sunny, southwestern print. For the bold of heart, try pairing the Barefoot Tess ‘Tijuana‘ sandal with other prints, like a striped pencil skirt and graphic printed tee. Or, if you prefer simplicity, let the ‘Tijuana‘ do the talking and wear a demure black maxi with a white silk tank. Either way, this sandal begs for embellishment, so be sure to add exotic and bold jewelry (I’m loving the latest collection from Holst + Lee). A beautiful, comfortable, stylish way to endure the summer heat and look absolutely fabulous!
