A seasonal staple.

Summer has officially arrived and although parts of Aus are having some temperamental temps (looking at you Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide) we are officially hanging up our winter boots and swapping them out for our seasonal wardrobe for summer dresses, SPF and sandals.

The humble sandal is the perfect spring and summer shoe and can be paired with dresses, pants, skirts and shorts for that effortlessly chill look we Aussies love to strive for.
