Soles of Summer

One of my favorite changes to arrive with summer is the ability to have a little bit of fun with shoes. While certain trends come and go, there are a handful of shoes I rely on each year. What are your summer shoe staples?
{boat shoes}
Boat shoes add a little prep to your step. They are a classic edition to any outfit, and define summer without without the boat. 

{espadrille}
Espadrilles give your outfit more of a playful look that can be sophisticated and feminine or fierce and edgy. 
 {flip flops}
Forget the Old Navy flip flops and invest in a more sophisticated pair. They'll be perfect at the beach or a brunch paired with your favorite maxi or a sundress. 
 {nude heels}
Nude heels are elongating and will go with any outfit day or night. Not to mention they are a must-have for wedding season.
{peep toe pump or sling back}
A classic peep toe pump or sling back in a fun color (I suggest your favorite) can add a little bit of pizazz to an otherwise neutral outfit.

  2. I also love wedges! I have worn my Sperry's a TON this summer. I usually wear them mostly in the fall.
