TREND | Minimal at It's Best

I'm jumping for joy because it's finally sandal season. Well, here in Vancouver the verdict is still out but at least for the long weekend it will be SUNNY! I just recently got back from the desert, so my toes were very happy to see the sun. Unfortunately our friends on the East Coast are experiencing snow in April!  

The last couple of years in sandals, we've been seeing a lot of thin strapped gladiators and bells and whistles. Toe thongs were also the style of choice for a lot of women. For those of you who always have trouble fitting into a toe thong sandal and prefer a more minimalistic style, this season is dedicated to you. Thicker and wider straps are on trend this season, making for a more minimal look and also a very comfortable one. I'm fairly lucky that most styles fit well on my foot, but I do have to admit, a single wide strap across my foot is the most comfortable and the most freeing for my little toes. Here are a few picks this season you can not go without:

1. Gap, $49.95 - I picked up a great pair of natural leather sandals from the Gap (see main image). Very simple, one single wide strap across the foot and buckle ankle treatment. I walked all over Vegas in them so they are comfort tested. The price was easy on the wallet as well and too good to pass up.

2. Chloe, $398 - This mixture of color blocking makes for the ultimate Saint Tropez holiday sandal. The gold details adds a more luxurious touch to a very simple sandal.

3. Loeffler Randall, $295 -  If there is one color of shoes you need to get your hands on this summer, it's white. The block heel provides you enough lift to feel sexy, yet staying comfortable as well.

4. Birkenstock, $69.95 - As someone who hated Birks growing up, I am not oppose to the single strap, low profile Madrid. It's a slimmer formed footbed and the metallic leather is so awesome! I should know by now to never say never in the fashion biz.

5. Acne, $450 - If you'd like a little more coverage, you can get bolder with black on black and even wider straps.
