The other day, I glanced down at my feet. Not only were they in dire need of a fresh pedicure, but they were enveloped in — yet again — a pair of flip-flops for the umpteenth day in a row. While I love easy slides, in that moment, I felt like I wanted a fresh pair of stylish sandals. There are so many shoe trends to consider right now — from block heels to thong sandals — but I decided to hunt down one of my favorite styles: an easy-to-wear gladiator sandal; and I found it at Old Navy.

The Faux-Suede Lace-Up Gladiator Sandals ($10, originally $35) comes in five earthy shades, and unlike other gladiators I've owned, they're simple to both slip on and tie. The footbed is soft, it's simple to loosen or tighten the laces, and the laces even have small delicate tassels on the ends so the shoe itself doesn't feel overly trendy. The minute I slipped them on, I took them for a walk and felt ready for the beautiful warm weather. I plan to wear them with lightweight pants and even denim shorts.

I bought them in a mustard yellow shade, but I want to get them in every color.
