Chic spring sandals arrive at the Gap

1phgreen Don’t let this last week of dreary weather fool you, sandal season is indeed upon us. The sun is now shining, we’re thinking of spring and inspired to buy new sandals, but hesitant to spend a lot of money.

These adorable styles at the Gap are under $100 and look like they came out of a high-end designer box.

The multicolored Gladiator sandals in persimmon look like Marni meets Jil Sander, but cost just $39.50. A pair of Pierre Hardy for the Gap platform sandals are strappy shoes that add a ton of height and elongate the leg if worn with a short, simple dress. The same style was available last summer as well, but this time it's offered in an array of colors such as green and maroon. The platforms are $98.1persimmonglad

Because being on a budget is no excuse for wearing ratty, rubber flip-flops all the time.
