Yellow Summer Sandal: Nine West LeisaSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

These simple sandals are winning rave reviews, and they come in a zillion colors — something for everyone! I’m kind of loving these yellow suede sandals, but there are a ton of great colors, including several neutral shades. They’re $79 at Zappos and come in sizes 5-12. Nine West Leisa Sandal

P.S. My apologies to everyone for linking from yesterday’s post to the offensive Buzzfeed post re: ponytails/intelligence. I remembered seeing it years ago and agreeing with the basic idea behind it (low ponytails = better for being taken seriously), and when I hunted for it in 2016 I recognized the graphic (ponytails in pencil) and didn’t pay any attention to the verbiage used. I sincerely apologize. Kate was good enough to swap out the link for one to Manrepeller since I was away from the computer when I saw the uproar; I’ll just remove the Manrepeller link altogether too.

Blue Sandal: Sofft 'Innis' Low Wedge SandalSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Oooh: after a few sky-high sandals, I thought I’d feature this pretty, low wedge sandal, which looks lovely, flattering (love that dip in the front!) AND walkable. I like the summer suede options the best (blue, pictured, and coral), but the patent leather options (black, beige, and white) are nice too. They’re $89, available in sizes 6-11 in medium and wide widths — and they’re still eligible for triple points at Nordstrom (through May 8). Söfft ‘Innis’ Low Wedge Sandal

Amazon also has the shoe in “Baywater,” a tan suede, as does Zappos (in medium and wide widths).

Chunky Heel Sandals: Splendid JaylaSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

These block heel sandals look kind of perfect — I love the thick straps that give them a bit of an edge. They’re $158 at Zappos. Splendid Jayla Sandal

Two lower-priced options are here and here.

Work Wrap: Nordstrom Cashmere & Silk WrapSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I recently lost my beloved black cashmere wrap that I got at Henri Bendel’s years ago (sobbbbb) and so I’m on the hunt for a new one. I like that this one has both cashmere and silk in it and comes in a zillion colors — it has a zillion positive ratings too. I think the eyelash fringe makes it look more delicate, the perfect thing to pair with a summer dress. If you want a heavier option, do note that the equally highly rated wool and cashmere wrap has some colors on sale for 33% off. The pictured scarf is $98. Nordstrom Cashmere & Silk Wrap

And for those who celebrate, Happy Passover!

Summer Sandal: Sam Edelman YardleySomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy weekend, ladies! Maybe it’s the knee surgery in me talking, but I can’t wait to wear fun sandals like this again — in fact, all of the boho summer stuff is really speaking to me this summer. I’d wear the pictured sandals with a swingy dress, or even one of the split maxi dresses that are hot right now (this one is fun and comes in a zillion colors, or this one is only $32 and looks like a great basic). The sandals are $120 and have 5 stars at Zappos. Sam Edelman Yardley

Striped Heel: Stuart Weitzman 'Nudistsong' Ankle Strap Sandal Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

I am sorry to report that the dark purple Nudistsong heels on Nordstrom’s homepage are (sob) no longer in stock, at least not anywhere I can find. But they do have a bunch of other colors, including these gorgeous kinda-stripey kinda-shiney shoes. Considering the rest of the sandal is so minimalist (and, let’s face it, not a “just popping out for brunch” sandal), I think it works. I want. The pictured shoes are $435, but they come in a bunch of other colors in prices ranging from $398 to $435. (The Nudist heel is the original bestseller; the Nudistsong is a slightly lower 4″ version.)

These $79 Steve Madden sandals are very similar and highly rated.
