Cheap Thrill: The Perfect Colorblock Sandal For Summer

cheap-thrill-zara
It may have been a Friday-the-13th weekend, but we're feeling pretty lucky after stumbling upon these utterly perfect, super-inexpensive heeled sandals from Zara. Frankly, we'd like to own these babies in every colorway available. It's no secret that Zara generally kills it in the footwear department (seriously, their shoe game is out of this world), but these might be the summer sandals we talk about for seasons — you know, that epic pair you wear on every date, to every wedding, to every brunch, and on every vacation. The best part? They fit like a glove into spring's punchy palette, and they're a bit more attainable than the $795 Giuseppe Zanotti pair that got our hearts pounding.

Aside from costing under $50, they're simple but interesting and sexy but functional — hello, versatility! The structural cut and cuff-plus-strap detail make these a new-and-improved take on your basic, boring old peep-toe pumps, but the wearability factor remains intact, thanks to a sleek heel and ultra-wearable color palettes.
The black option speaks for itself, but we also adore the colorblocked peach-and-blush or purple-and-red versions for a little summer fun (hey, you could even buy all three for less than the price of a lot of other cute shoes you might be inclined to splurge on). We've already spotted several of our fave bloggers sporting these babies, so we plan on booking it to one of our local stores, stat. After all, if the popular shoes of Zara's past have taught us anything, it's that we grab 'em while we can —there's nothing worse than crying tears of regret over a pair with so much mileage potential. Just imagine the cost-per-wear with these bad boys!
Zara Basic Sandals, $49.90, available at Zara.
