Shopping List: Ankle-Strap Sandals

I know the end of summer is almost one month away, but I've still been dying for a pair of ankle-strap sandals but haven't committed yet. I love how they look with dresses and with skinny jeans, and would personally choose a more neutral color so they could match with more in my wardrobe. I've picked out 9 pairs below that range from $35 to $275. I've noted my favorites, but I'd love to hear which pairs you'd pick out for yourselves!

 Gomax 'Calantha' sandals in peach - $35 {love this color combo!}
Zara ankle strap sandal in black - $40 {simple but chic}

mid price, left to right:
Calvin Klein 'Vivan' in light purple - $85 {such a pretty color - my 2nd favorite pair}

high price, left to right:

  1. These are all so gorgeous! I love the style on others, but I'm not sure they'd look good on me. I'm afraid they'd give me cankles or something!

  2. Loving these strappy sandals! I need a nude pair for sure!

  3. I really love those bright blue ones that are in the middle!


  4. I was a little hesitant to wear ankle strap heels at first but I love them now, and that ALDO pair in the top right looks perfect!


  5. I love love love ankle straps! I just had to get rid of my favorite Steve Madden pair from a few years ago so I am so glad there are so many styles right now to choose from!

  6. So pretty! Love the nude & pink ones :)

    The Other Side of Gray

  7. i love ankle strap sandals...they are so sexy and feminine. i will take one of each of these, but i love the pink/nude ones!

  8. That purple calvin klein is my fave! But yeah... smart to stick with things you can actually wear with more than 1% of your wardrobe haha... i suck at remembering to do that.


    1. i think that pair could be considered a neutral - the purple is so light it's almost like a blush! i would totally wear them in place of nude :)

  9. I loveee ankle strap heels right now!! and I want all the ones you posted lol. so chic!

  10. I love ankle straps! I try to stay away because I'm short and it just cuts off the leg, but it's so hard (I have two pairs :) )

    Loving the bright pink ones, but these are all fabulous choices!


  11. I say go for the colorblocked ones. Always fun to add a pop of color to any look.

    Win a new Deux Lux handbag!

  12. I'm too short to pull these off, but love them on others!

  13. I feel like this style doesn't look right on me b/c I'm so short but it looks so good on other people! Your fave is mine as well - can't go wrong with a neutral!

  14. I was going to say the PLV's before I even read which was your favorite. They're absolutely stunning. Love this post xo

  15. These are all gorgeous shoes! The low end ones are just as nice as the high end ones.

    The Tiny Heart

  16. Okay, seriously, you nailed it! I love every single pair you posted!! I can't pick a fave at all, its too hard.

  17. Ah I'm the same! Haven't committed either, keep trying them on and not finding the right pair :(

  18. the gomax and joie are my fave..these are so chic!
