Sandals for Summer Offices

Office Appropriate Outfits - Summer

Today is Sandals Day over at Work Clothes, I Suppose as part of her Third Thursday Threads series. Unfortunately, it is decidedly not sandals weather in Chicago and I completely forgot to take pictures of the sandals I wore this weekend when it was still warm enough to bare my toes.

So, instead, you get a collage of ways I’ve worn sandals to work over the past two summers.

Office appropriate sandals

I’m currently fortunate enough to work in an office that allows open-toed shoes. It hasn’t always been that way and it took me a few years to embrace letting my toes go free while at work. Since then I’ve been embracing it by remembering to paint my toenails and never wearing flip flops! Ankle strap sandals have become my favorite, too, since I feel they are slightly more sophisticated than slip-ons. I also prefer sandals that cover my heel so no one has to see how beat-up they are from all the running.

What about you? Do you wear sandals to work? Do you have any rules (either dress code or self-imposed) about wearing open-toed shoes to the office?

    I certainly wear sandals to the office when the weather allows, though I do try to keep my toenails painted when I’m wearing sandals. That’s less of a work thing and more of a life thing though, haha. I’m curious: do you ever wear flat sandals to work? (I can’t quite tell if the pair at the bottom of the collage are flat or not) Or do flat sandals feel too casual?

      The ones at the bottom are also wedges. I don’t to wear flat sandals to the office because, yeah, they feel a bit too casual. Although, the ones I recently bought from Express are closer to what I would feel comfortable wearing to work so those might make an appearance this summer.

    I’m always a bit torn about wearing sandals to the office. My office is casual too, but I only will wear really dressy sandals there and even then sometimes I feel a little too casual. Some women wear actual athletic sandals or flip flops and I’m always stunned when they do.

    This is a great collage! I always thought anything with a heel were called “heels” and any flat or platform were called “sandals.” Little did I know, heeled sandals are a thing. Who knew?

    It’s only recently that I became able to wear open-toed shoes to work. I don’t understand why anyone wouldn’t be able to but whatever. Now that I can, I take advantage any chance I get! I can’t walk in typical close-toed heels so open toes are a must!

    Stopping by from the link up 🙂

    Those blue and black strappy wedges are so cute!! I don’t remember seeing them before, even though I recognize that skirt outfit. Glad you found a way to link up, though, because these are all so great for summer work inspiration!
