I think I’m finally at a point in my life where I understand the healthy middle-ground in style. Much of my high school, and even college career has been made up of polar opposites. The difference between casual and dressy outfits meant wearing either yoga pants and T-shirts or sky-high going out heels and stuffy blazers. But working a full time job has helped me to truly understand the art of business casual done right. This summer, one of my favorite ways to add polish to a daytime look is with strappy heeled sandals. It seems that everyone I know is wearing this fun yet adaptable heel- and why not? They’re (relatively) comfy, and go with just about anything from summer shorts to sophisticated max dresses. The key is a classic shape, infused with trendy variations like lucite and bright colors. I’ve included here some of my favorite picks in stores now and was surprised by how reasonable it is to invest in the sandal craze. Which one would you wear?

Just steps from busy bridged borough (990 Washington Ave.), it’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon walking, napping, and getting back to nature. So I pulled on some flats and a comfy weekend outfit to make the trek.
