The Sam Edelman "Gigi" t-strap sandal has been heralded as the "It" sandal of the season by Nordstrom.com (which is having their half-yearly sale right now, by the way). The colorblock Gigi sells for around $65 at various stores.
These Steve Madden "Bethanyy" ankle-cuff sandals are just $39.99 (down from $60) at Piperlime.com and come in a a bunch of great colors like coral, silver and aqua, as well as the versatile tan shown here. Wear them with shorts, skirts and summer dresses.
You could get the look for a few dollars less with these Mossimo "Black Pearl" sandals, which are $24.99, but unless you are opposed to wearing leather, I'd definitely opt for the Steve Maddens. Chances are, they'll last longer and be more comfortable - totally worth paying a tiny bit more.
