Tall, strappy sandals were at the top of my most wanted list this summer (actually, they were on everyone's list)! Remember this post? I hunted for my favorite style at the best price and went with the Cypress Gladiator by Free People for only $128. I'm downright obsessed with these sandals! They transform so many pieces in my closet and look great with everything. I'm definitely excited for Fall (what fashionista doesn't love Fall?), but I'm trying to get the most out of my summer pieces while we still have warm days! Here's a little inspo to squeeze the most out of your pair before we all freeze to death. Tall gladiators make the ultimate statement. Why steal their spotlight with a distracting look? I like to pair them with a solid color, minimal silhouette. Opt for a basic mini dress to wear with your sandals. It will let the shoes shine! Wearing: Dress, Forever 21. Cuff, Free People. Bag, Free People. Sometimes too much, is literally toooo much. You don't want to give it all away! I let my FP sandals peek out of a maxi dress (that I'm always wearing and clearly obsessed with) for a little flair. If you're feeling bold, a high slit would do you well with some funky glads. Wearing: Dress, Urban Outfitters (Similar). Necklace, Free People (Similar ). Sunglasses, RayBan. A white tee and denim shorts combo is the ultimate go-to. For a casual-chic look, I dressed up my basics with some dainty necklace layers and my statement gladiators. I did have my shirt tied up, but had to undo it after my shorts ripped too far. RIP Levi's, you were good to me. Wearing: Top, Free People. Shorts, Urban Renewal (Similar). Necklace, Océanne & AXMK.
