Sandal Season

May 3, 2016

Sandal season has arrived, ladies. Which means getting the ol’ skin ready for more exposure (dresses! skirts! off the shoulder!) and more importantly unearthing our feet from the hibernation known as boots and booties is upon on.

So in the spirit of sandals, I’m sharing a few ways to make sure your feet are ready to be on display as well as loads of cute sandals to shop now for the months ahead at the bottom of this post!


If your feet suffer from calluses at all or get dry, it’s time you start to use those hours you sleep to your advantage. Put lotion on at night, follow with socks and then let the lotion go to work while you Zzzz. You’ll wake up with softer feet quite literally overnight.

Amope Pedi Perfect Rechargeable Wet & Dry Foot FileFile.

I often rely heavily on the cheap pedicures here in New York but in between them my feet get beat up with all the walking I do around this city. And nobody wants to be seen in yoga classes with dry heels (this has been me one too many times…eeep.) Enter the Amopé Pedi Perfect Rechargeable Wet & Dry Foot File. This little genius tool can be used in or out of the shower and it files away any toughness on your feet. The first time I used it I was exclaiming so much at the results that my roommate finally called into the bathroom “what are you doing in there?” It’s rather brilliant in the way it delivers soft, smooth skin on your feet without having to go to a nail salon! I can’t wait to keep up the appearance of my feet in between manicures with this little guy. (If interested in purchasing you can save up to $17.50 by using coupons found here.)

Using cuticle oil on your fingernails seems second nature but only recently did I start using an oil (or you can try a balm, too- whichever you can find at your local drugstore) on my toenails. It’ll moisturize and soften your cuticles and keep toes looking more hydrated henceforth extending the life of your pedicure.

Bring your own polish.

Nothing is worse than getting your toes painted at a pedicure and then chipping it not too long after your salon visit. (And if you’re anything like me this chip will bother you for days on end…) Solve this issue by bringing your own polish color to the salon vs. using one of the colors from their selection. This way if you have any chips, you can prolong your pedicure by fixing your toes should any chips happen.
