When I first picked up these metallic sandals from J.Crew I thought "these would make a great pair of poolside sandals", but honestly they have been much more than that. I've worn them out to the grocery store, for a pedicure, and many other places. They're simple and can be worn with pretty much anything. If you haven't bought a pair yet, I highly suggest starting with a basic pair like white or black. If you're not a basic type of girl, I say go for this embellished pair. These will go with anything as well, but add a bit more attention and sparkle to your feet. PS, all Cyprus sandals are on sale/promo.
