Alternative title: Everlane does it again.
It always feels like it takes me a few days to get back into the swing of wearing all of my clothes and taking regular outfit photos again after doing a style sudoku. I must admit, it’s super convenient to have all of the clothes I’m going to wear for two weeks already picked out. It makes getting ready in the morning so much easier and faster! I included these sandals in my style sudoku, but I had to write a separate post dedicated to them once that was over, because they’re just too good not to share.
If you follow other bloggers or Instagrammers that are loyal to Everlane, you’ve probably seen these sandals. It feels like everyone and their mom has a pair. Normally when that happens, I’m not a huge fan of trying out the item myself, but there are some things that make me more eager to try them when lots of other people rave about them…and these sandals are one of those things. (Other things I’ve wanted to try after seeing them on others: Summersalt swimsuits and Outdoor Voices activewear.)
I gave in and ordered these sandals, the Day Crossover Sandal, a month ago. My original order for my true size was cancelled, so I placed another order for the next half size up. Reviews are mixed as to whether one should size up or not. My feet are slightly wider than average, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try the next size up. I picked the rose color because it looked like it would blend into my skin tone.
I could not believe how comfortable they were straight out of the box. The reviews definitely don’t lie: the leather upper is seriously the softest I’ve ever felt. It’s like my feet are getting hugged every time I wear them! They don’t rub, so I haven’t had any blisters. They’re amazing. I thought at first that the next half size up was too big, but I’ve decided that I liked the little bit of extra length so my feet don’t feel like they’re falling off the back. Yes, the sole is quite flat, so I wouldn’t wear these to do a lot of walking, but they’re perfect for sitting at my desk all day or doing other casual strolls.
I’m not one to be like, “YOU MUST BUY THIS PRODUCT NOW! IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!” because, well, it’s just a pair of shoes. There will always be another pair of shoes. But if you’ve been eyeing them yourself, just place the order. Try them! I didn’t want to love them and I do and now they’re the only pair of sandals I want to wear. I’m really hoping my feet don’t make the inner sole gross (ha) because I want them to stay pretty and perfect forever.
I guess my outfit is kind of fun, too, haha. I mixed it up with a little white monochrome to not distract too much from my sandals, and the sweater blazer provides shelter from the A/C chill and adds a little more color. There are a lot of textures that keep the outfit from looking too one-note. This feels very “fresh” for summer!
