When you live in Florida sandals are part of your wardrobe 365 days a year and I’m constantly looking for a new style. Because I’m always shopping for a new pair I’m more often than not searching for an affordable pair. Now if they’re a classic style that won’t go out of style I spend a little more but for the most part I try to stick under $50. Below I picked some of my favortie pairs under $50.
I have a love hate thing with this style. I can appreciate long gladiators sandals like Kourtney Kardashian is constantly seen wearing but they’re just not for me. I stick to platforms, wedges and flats but I’ve included a little bit of everything below. These are perfect to wear with a romper or some summer lace.

The hippie style sandals are back with a vengeance! I say buy the real thing – they’re SO worth it and get better with each and every wear but if you’re on a limited budget you can easily find a good replica.

Summer is all about ease and metallic sandals (especially flat ones) will give any dressy evening look a more laid back feel without sacrificing the glam factor.

Pregnant or not Reese Witherspoon always looks classic and chic!! Love this look: It combines both function and style and is a outfit for running errands! Get Reese’s look for less woth pieces from Nordstrom, Payless & more!!
Although Ellen Pompeo always seems to get photographed in uninspiring and boring outfits, this one caught my attention. The chambray shirt with the white skinny jeans are Summer perfection personified; and I love the way the brown belt and black Tom’s shoes pop against the outfit. Get Ellen’s casual look for less with pieces from Payless, Quiksilver and more!
Jessica Biel’s outfit is perfection! It’s chic, feminine (with a hint of masculinity) and has the has the right touch of trendy. Best of all you can wear these pieces in a variety of different ways: wear the cardigan over a dress and wrap a belt over it; take the pants, pair it with a black tank for the evening, and wear the white tee with just about anything in your wardrobe. Get Jessica’s look for less!
Nothing screams Summer time like these nautical inspired outfits!

I’m sure Kate Bosworth could wear a paper bag and still look gorgeous, but this particular outfit (although cute and quirky) seemed to beg for a little “oomph!” First step: I decided to stay within the same color family, but switch it up by adding a white crew neck sweater over a black button down ( I LOVE THAT COMBO!). Next: The bulky bag wasn’t working for me, so I replaced it with a clutch. Lastly, I found a gorgeous bow back skirt, which really adds a lot of character to the outfit. When it came down to the shoes and footless tights, I just went with it simply because I liked it (but the ensemble would look just as good without them). Don’t forget, every piece in this outfit can be broken down and worn with just about anything in your closet: The skirt could be worn with a cropped blazer to work; the sweater with a pair of jeans for a casual luncheon, or the black button-down with a pair of black slacks for a chic evening get-together.
