Fashion Finds: For Her

Teysha Guate Sandals

Guate Sandals

Teysha, $80

If you’re beginning to transition your footwear from fall/winter to spring/summer, then a new pair of sandals should be at the top of your list. Teysha is a brand we’ve admired for a while, not only for their beautifully handcrafted shoes, but because of their mission of employing artisans and creating ethically handcrafted goods. Their Guate Sandals are made in Guatemala featuring authentic Mayan textiles, handwoven so that each pair varies slightly. They come in a variety of colorful styles from which to choose.

Its water-based formula and non-chemical sunscreen is perfect for Texans who want their skin to look great and stay protected. This is a must-have for any warm-weather makeup arsenal.
