How Sarah & Alexa Are Wearing The Flat Sandal

2020-08-27

We knew The Flat Sandal was going to be a hit. It was the silhouette we'd dreamed of every summer: flattering, barely there, and reminiscent of classic warm-weather style. Sarah and Alexa ordered their pairs as soon as the first shipment arrived from our factory in Spain and have been wearing them on repeat ever since. 

"When I say this style is on daily rotation, I truly mean daily: It's just as much a part of my work-from-home routine as my morning coffee," Sarah said. "For the last few months, I've tried—though sometimes failed, and that's okay—to get dressed and put shoes on every morning, even if I never leave the house. That ritual gives me a sense of normalcy and stability in a world in which so much is different and unknown."

With a few more weeks of summer on deck, they each shared two recent outfits they loved.

For Day...

"I have a soft spot for great '90s-inspired denim, like this standby pair from Agolde. Whether it's a rainy Sunday spent reading indoors or a day of back-to-back calls, they're a versatile companion to breezy styles and cozy knits alike."

"This selfie was taken minutes before sitting down to my desk for a full day of Zoom meetings. I love dressing colorfully, especially now, so this silky blouse from Horror Vacui was one of my favorite summer purchases. Our Apricot sandal matches perfectly, and the barely there nature of these shoes means that they're perfect for a day spent indoors. And, thanks to the thoughtfully placed ankle strap, ready to hold you in when you need a long walk afterwards."

For Dinner...

"Why not get all dressed up with nowhere to go? This look lends a bit of glamour to a backyard dinner, while the color and delicate dot print are everything I love about summer style.

When it comes to shopping, I buy what I love, wear it often, and particularly invest in shoes, coats, bags, denim—all things I know will make their way into my daily routine (like these sandals). For more occasion or ephemeral styles, like this Rebecca de Ravenel Za Za dress, I'm a big proponent of shopping on TheRealReal: It's an easy way to shop sustainably, while also discovering treasures from seasons past."

"This is my new favorite summer dress from Cocoshop, a brand founded by one of my very best friends. Though I'm not going very far these days, I've loved putting it on with our Apricot sandals for Saturday evening dinner outside in our backyard. The pop of color adds just enough excitement to 'finish' the look while still allowing me to feel comfortable running around outside."
