It’s day 5 of 22 Days of Summer Fashion, and I’ve teamed up with Crocs to bring you this cute and comfy summer outfit that’s perfect for a day at the mall or lunch with your girlfriends. Stay tuned because I also have a really sweet giveaway at the end of this post!
That’s right, I said Crocs. These adorable wedge sandals hardly resemble the clunky garden clogs we associate with Crocs, but they have every bit of the comfort quotient that Crocs is famous for.
This is the Leigh II Ankle Strap Graphic Wedge in stucco/gold. They also come in a green or a navy floral pattern. With their Croslite™ foam footbed on top of a Croslite™ foam outsole, they feel like walking on air. I wore them all around an outdoor shopping mall last Saturday morning, and when I got home, I didn’t even want to take them off. (Usually the first thing I do when I walk in the door is kick off my shoes.)
It’s not just the foam footbed that makes them so incredibly comfortable. The ankle straps and floral-print canvas forefoot straps are both made with a synthetic leather that is so super soft inside, and it doesn’t rub or cut into the foot anywhere. Plus, there’s this nifty “smart buckle” that you position where you want it, and then you can just use the hidden clasp to slide them on and off and you never have to adjust the buckle again.
They have about a 3-inch heel with a 1-inch platform, so they’re the perfect height for those of us with finicky feet. (A moderate wedge heel is often more comfortable than a flat if you struggle with foot issues.)

I styled these floral sandals with some tried and true pieces from my closet — a denim skirt and coral t-shirt. When I saw these shoes I knew that I’d have to wear this shirt with them. The color is almost an exact match with the footbed. I got it at Ann Taylor last year, but this ballet neck tee in coral spice is close, and this U-neck tee also comes in coral spice.
My skirt is old, and it’s really hard to find cute ones in this length right now. They all seem to be super short or super long. Mine is 20-21 inches long, for your shopping reference. I would suggest looking at this one by Hudson (19 inches and $$) or this button-front A-line by Vince Camuto. It is less expensive, but it doesn’t list the length.
My crossbody bag is a pretty blush color that I thought played into this color palette perfectly. It is only available on Amazon.com and Farfetch, as far as I know. I paid much less than that at Nordstrom Rack. I had my eye on this style for well over a year, so when I saw it at a deep discount, I snatched it up.
Here’s a view of the back. Sometimes y’all ask what I do with my hair when it’s pulled back. This is it — 4 bobby pins, crisscrossed. Easy peasy.
I love the colors in this outfit and how the sandals inspired the combination. It’s the perfect summery mom-about-town outfit.

We had fun taking these pictures at the mall. We were there before the stores opened, so I was thrilled when I discovered that the Starbucks opens early. Of course I had to grab a latte!
