cute + comfy sandal for summer

a lot of people have commented on my new sandals in my Instagram stories so i thought i'd share the details on here :)

my friend, kelsey, told me about these new sandals she thought i would love and she was right! living in NYC we do a LOT of walking so we look at our shoes like someone with a car would look at their tires. they need to be reliable, last for a long time, and get you from point A to point B in one piece.

when i first moved to the city I didn't think that way and i found out quickly that when your feet hurt your whole body pays for it. & when i'm in pain or uncomfortable it just makes me grumpy (which is not fun for me or anyone around me for that matter!).

i've also had four knee surgeries and one foot surgery (soccer injuries from back in my glory days...ha!) so good shoes really are a must for me.

so if you're in the market for a shoe that feels like you're walking on a cloud  while also being stylish...let me introduce you to Sofft!

i've had mine for a few months now and i've worn them mostly every's like a sneaker sole with a sandal top. does it get any better than that? cute & comfortable. yes please! I have the mirabelle sport sandal in brown leather. they make some other styles too so go check them out!

requirements when i'm buying a sandal:

-comfortable (my biggest value when buying a shoe!)

-has a back-strap (this is a biggie for me because of city-living and my foot surgery. i like to feel like the shoe is secure on my foot...lots of people can do without having a back i'm just not one of them!)

-stylish...if i don't love the look of the sandal i'm not going to want to wear it. this seem like a no-brainer, but because i value comfort so much i've bought really comfortable sandals before but didn't like the way they looked and i also felt weird when i was wearing them.

so for me i'd rather have one or two great pair of sandals (aka meets all my sandal requirements) than a closet full of shoes that hurt my feet when i wear them! i do think they're a little pricey, but after having them for a few months and getting a LOT of wear out of them (they're the only sandal i have currently!) i can honestly say they're well worth the money.

happy sandal-wearing! :)

also my dress is from francesca's. i can't find my exact dress on their website, but i linked a similar one (i also tried the linked dress on and it was a hard decision between the one i bought and that one!). they have a lot of floral dresses right now!

my kiddos dresses are from old navy.
