Chiara Ferragni | The Blonde Salad | Valentino Rockstud PVC Thong Sandals

During the summer season, flip-flops aren’t usually my type of go-to shoes unless I am going to the beach. However, these Valentino Rockstud PVC Thong Sandals redefine the mundane flip-flop, making them an elegant semi-casual yet semi-formal summer shoe.

And, of course, the stylish fashion blogger and footwear designer, Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad, proves all of the statements above. As she pairs them with various outfits, these Valentinos exhibit their endless potential as a versatile summer sandal.

Splurging $295 on PVC footwear that can only be worn only during one part of the year is quite the extravagant price to pay. Thanks to Steve Madden, the “JIFFY” Studded Jelly Thong Sandals are the perfect budget-friendly alternative to the Valentinos above. Priced at $39.95, they are almost identical to its designer counterpart with only minor differences that are hardly even noticeable.
