I used to buy several pairs of sandals each summer. I always thought of them as a "one season" purchase. I would buy something cheap and after a summer of wear and tear they were finished. However, last year I bought my first pair of K. Jacques. I first heard about the brand in Nina Garcia's book The One Hundred and I was curious if they would live up the hype. They are definitely a bit pricer than regular sandals, but I'm happy to report that you get what you pay for. I absolutely lived in my silver pair last summer (above center) and I will probably add a neutral pair to the mix this year. If you're looking for a pair of high quality sandals I cannot recommend these enough. They run a bit small so make sure you size up a half size when ordering.
Have a fabulous weekend!
