It takes a while for things to cool down in Texas and we can basically wear sandals all year in some parts of the state. Gladiator style sandals are the perfect transition shoes for our weather. It covers the leg like a boot but leaves a little breathing room for the Texas heat. I also love the edgy look that it gives to my style paired with a simple black dress and a touch of denim. This is a go to look for me and can easily transition from day to night.
