Water-friendly Sandals & Accessories for Summer Fashion

Summer is my favorite time of year! There's nothing better than cooling off from the heat of the day with a dip in a pool or trip to the beach. Our family has been vacationing in Chincoteague for 20 years, where Assateague (famous for wild horses) offers miles of untouched beaches, kayaking in the bay and the most relaxing vibes around. When it's your turn to take a dip at your favorite pool or beach, Plum Bottom has got the perfect sandals and accessories! 

From Hawaii with Love: OluKai Flip Flops

Every conversation about what to wear at the pool or beach starts with Olukai.  Originally developed by and for Hawaiian lifeguards, these flip flops are designed to support the anatomical contours of your foot. Inspired by walking in the sand, their sandals cup your heel, support your arch and allow your toes to spread. This allows your feet to move naturally and healthfully. 

Most of OluKai' styles are water-ready with materials that are quick drying and designed to stand up to salt and surf. 

Slide into a Pair: Waterproof Slide Sandals

If flip flops or toe thongs aren't your thing, Remonte offers an easy slide that can handle getting wet and looks cute enough to wear with a sundress. The colorful top offers more coverage than the typical sandal, while stretching to accommodate bunions, hammer toes and wider feet. The orthotically designed footbed offers firm support, making it a great comfort choice! 

Don't let this slide pass you by.  You'll wear it every day--not just poolside.  

Don't Miss this Trend: Puffy Slides

One trend you're sure to see hitting the beach this year is the puffy slide. Over-sized and as soft as a marshmallows, these JSlides sandals can't help but put a smile on your face. They are just fun!  And couldn't you use some extra fun this year?

We're in love with the vibrant colors, but black or white can be your everyday go-to! 

A frolicsome cover-up can accentuate your best features or conceal your less-favorite parts. Both our stores carry a fun selection of gauzy wraps and kimonos that you can wear beyond the beach.  We love them as layering pieces, too. They look as good with jeans and leggings as they do over a swimsuit. 

We've got a few cover-up options online, but visit us in person to see the full selection. 

Stay Organized, Look Cool: Tote Bags

Towels, sunscreen, books, glasses--your beach tote has a big job! Both stores have a variety of totes to make life a little more organized while you're having fun. Summer is the time to lean into bright colors and tassels because--why not?! But if you want to carry something that can take you beyond the beach, we've also got a great selection of leather totes that are also farmer's market friendly. 

 A great tote bag is a must for poolside or beach! I keep my packed at all times with a beach blanket, a towel & sunscreen to make it easy when it's time to head to the pool!

From breezy, colorful cover-ups to water-friendly sandals Plum Bottom has the perfect combo for fashionable, comfortable sandals and accessories. Head to either store and let us help outfit you for your summer pool and beach adventures. Or shop online and enjoy supporting a small, women-owned business!
