From Office to Drinks . . . It's Not What You Think

There are a couple of things Californians love dearly: authentic Mexican food, sunny weather (and taking it for granted), and a certain kind of casual comfort that drives both design and lifestyle. But Californian or not, being comfortable is pretty awesome.

It's no surprise, then, that when summer time rolls around, the AELLA version of "office to drinks”  is heels to sandals and not the other way around. You’ve been in the office all day running the show in your power booties and heels. It’s time to unwind with some cocktails and show off that pedicure!

Just check out how Angela, a Portland-born LA-based creative, transitions from 9AM-5PM shift in our Essential Cinched Blazer and Signature Ankle Skinnies to her 5PM-9PM in a strapless top and simple, flat, sexy sandals. (Pictured here are handmade leather sandals from LA-based Palatines.)

If you're still on the fence about the sandals + suit look, just check out our round up of some of our favorite looks from the internets:

. . . And because we're just as obsessed with shoes as we are with our clothes, here are our top picks for the perfect summer suit sandals to fit every budget!
