Gladiator sandals in gold and to the knee for under $100??? Sign me up! I have been a big fan of knee-high gladiators for a few years, but every pair I really liked was too pricey for something I wasn’t completely sure I would actually wear very often. I don’t mind splurging on shoes when they are a great staple or just a fabulous statement shoe, but I have to be sure I will wear them often enough to justify the cost. I’ve had my eye on two pairs of Stuart Weitzman gladiators — both the classic gladiator and the newer lace-up “Sparta” — and this season’s Valentino gladiator is an obsession! But when I spotted this pair by Aldo, I was sold! I like that they emulate the style of the higher end versions but don’t completely copy them. And of course, the price point is clutch! I anticipate wearing these all summer with my favorite sundresses and cutoffs!
I found this top recently at Anthropologie and was immediately sold. It is so soft and incredibly comfortable, but it still looks crisp and fresh! It was also comes in a light gray solid and light blue gingham…both so cute. I love it with my favorite J.Crew cutoffs, and I think it will also be a great topper for any summer jeans!
