A look at my calendar confirms it: The equinox has come and gone, which means that spring is now officially upon us. I'll admit that one of the most exciting parts about ushering in a new season is an excuse to do a little shopping and right now, the internet is really delivering on that front. The new-arrivals sections at a few of my go-to affordable retailers are inundated with the prettiest spring sandals, and honestly, just scrolling through these styles is an uplifting activity I recommend.
The sandal styles I'm eyeing right now also happen to hit on some of the biggest spring trends—shocker—and include elevated thong sandals that channel the '90s, square-toe details to make any outfit more current, and simple mules in an array of candy-colored hues. Pretty soon, sandal season will feel real, and I wouldn't be surprised if many of these pairs were the first to sell out, so now is the time to snatch them up before they do—just saying!
