JEWELED SANDALS

If you live in Florida, like I do, jeweled sandals are an investment piece you can essentially wear year-round. If you don’t live in Florida, you definitely need a pair to bring warmth to your wardrobe! I styled the Pasha Armona sandals which are a splurge at $229, but once you learn more about the brand, you’ll realize it’s worth the price tag. All of the shoes are handmade in Indonesia with Asian stones that are similar to Swarovski crystals and genuine high-grade leather. Pasha is actually a family-owned business (named after the founding couple’s daughter), which makes the sandals even more special to me.

The Bohemia crystals on the sandals are almost blindingly gorgeous – I have received compliments on them from the moment I put them on. Pasha sells a great range of sizes from US 5 to 12, which is perfect for me because I have big feet and have a hard time finding shoes. The website recommends sizing up, but I was actually able to wear my true size. The sandals also come with a storage box unlike any regular shoebox; it reminds me of the vintage trunk my dad keeps my old dance recital costumes in. Pasha checks all of my boxes when it comes to statement sandals for the summer: high quality, attention to detail, and great fit.
