Jelly sandals are perfect for the pool, the beach (you can wash the sand right off!), and commuting around your city on rainy days! They’re relatively light weight, too, which makes it easy to toss them in your bag. Surprisingly, there are some really cute pairs of jellies out there. Here’s a look at some of my favorites…
