A few months ago, I shared with you some opinions on essential shoes for your closet. I’m back with a summer edition– the seven pairs I find that I get most use out of all summer long!
1// TOMS. If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know how much of a TOMS fan I am. I literally count down the days all through winter until it’s warm enough to wear these crazy comfy slip-ons again. (Blue Beckett Classic Slip-On, TOMS, $54)
2// Wedges. The ultimate summer heel in my book– why try to balance on those skinny little pegs when you don’t have to? Summer is the season to rock these. (Hamptons Navajo Mid-Wedge, Jack Rogers, $136)
3// Gladiators. I love this style of sandal because they can be dressed up or down, and always come in such funky styles! I wear a pair I got at the Plaka in Greece years ago, but these Sam Edelmans are pretty darn cute. (Ginger Sandals, Sam Edelman, $90 sale)
4// Keds. Some days, you just need a sneaker. Simple lace-ups go with just about everything– you’ll often see me rocking them with white tees and high waisted skirts, one of my favorite lazy warm day looks. (Champion Canvas Sneakers, Keds, $40)
5// Flip Flops. Did I mention it’s summer? Did I mention I love all things nautical? Adore these whale flip flops from Vineyard Vines. (Whale Flip Flops, Vineyard Vines, $40)
6// Boat shoes. I adore my Hunter wellies, but there is no way I’m putting those guys on in the heat. I’m a Sperry’s girl tried and true when it comes to summer storms. (Top-Siders, Sperry, $75)
7// The Simple Black Sandal. Work to cocktails to dinner to out? There are few pairs of sandals I get more use out of than simple black strappies that transition from day to night so flawlessly– plus they stay comfortable. (Sondra Sandal, MICHAEL Michael Kors, $98)
