Sandals with Stones and Jewels

As more and more stores begin displaying their spring and summer shoe inventory, I’m seeing an increasing number of earth-tone sandals that are adorned with stones, jewels, medallions and beads. I guess this is 2010’s answer to last  year’s hardware trend. I’m loving it–it’s like jewelry for your feet!

Gotta Get Gap Shoes for Spring 2010

As things get busier and busier at work, I find myself with less and less time to go shopping. I’ve started buying more things online. If I do end up going to the mall, I usually don’t have time to go to one store for a dress, another for shoes, another for jewelry, etc.

As a result, I’m always on the lookout for stores where I can get everything I need in one stop. Gap has become one of my new favorites for this exact reason; I get get an outfit and shoes in one place. It’s not always easy to find a brand that does both equally well. I’m really loving the flats and sandals at Gap this season, check them out below:
