Best Summer Shoes!
If you are anything like me, you find it SO satisfying to go through a list and think, “check, check, check!” Anyone else?? Or am I total weirdo?? It’s okay if I am. I’ve embraced my weirdness in my older age. 😉 For those of you who appreciate a list as much as I do, I wanted to share a comprehensive list of all the stylish shoes you’ll need for the summer season. It’s great to get a jump on this early as the summer season is quickly approaching and will be here before we know it. I want to make sure you are prepared!! You’ll probably recognize some of these standout shoes from the blog or Instagram.
Are you ready? Let’s do this…
For all of my top picks for spring and summer, check out this post!
I bought these studded Steve Madden sandals last summer and loved them! And they were a best seller last year so I know you all loved them too. I have the clear version but they also come in tan. They’re comfortable, super versatile, and affordable! These sandals run true to size. I typically don’t like to deal with a buckle, but I made an exception for these because they are SO cute!

Please ignore my dry heels. If you live in a climate like mine, you’ll get how hard it is to keep your skin moisturized. So, let’s discuss these chic sandals. Braided and quilted fabric / leather is a HUGE trend this summer. Did you catch my fabu white braided bag by Bottega Veneta?? It’s SO gorge. Anyway, these Express sandals are super comfortable, easy to slip on (remember, I don’t like buckles), and a go-to for most of your summer outfits. These elevated casual sandals are the perfect mix of fashion, function and affordability. They also come in black and white. These run true to size. Of note, I bought the white pair too!

3) “It” Shoes!
See…? I told you braided is BIG this season!! These exact braided Raye heels are sold out everywhere but these Dolce Vita sandals are very similar. Plus, they have a chunkier heel, so they’ll be easy to walk in. Woo hoo! Dolce Vita shoes are always comfy and have uniform sizing so you can choose your normal size.

And, these Express braided sandals might be even cuter … for less money!! Don’t you LOVE when that happens??

If you’re looking for a gorgeous pair of luxe summery shoes for just about any event…that are also a cinch to walk in… you’ll love these Loeffler Randall sandals! They have a low heel. Yay for a low heel. I love that they’re gold so they will truly go with everything. Gold is such a versatile color. And the knotted bow heel on the toe is so pretty. These run narrow so that is a consideration if you have wider feet. They run true to size.

For dressier occasions, I am in LOVE with these high-end mules by Malone Souliers. I bought these last year and I wore them all the time. The tan and white combo is gorgeous, and the silhouette of the shoe is so unique. If you haven’t already, you should definitely check out the brand here. I love how easy these are to slip on and off and they are also comfy for heels. Size UP on these 1/2 size.
Oh, the See by Chloe wedges. How I love thee. As I continually mention, I’m 5’4″ and try to add height to my frame every chance I get. If I want my legs to look a mile long, I throw on some high-rise, wide leg jeans and these wedges…and voila… I look SUPER tall!! Well, in fairness, these wedges are 4.25 inches tall. They are surprisingly comfortable and wearable though since they’re platforms. I’m usually not a fan of buckles because I like to easily slide shoes on and off. But this buckle is so simple I don’t mind it. I also love that they have the leather ankle strap and white canvas strap across the toes so they feel very secure on your feet.

These exact sandals are from last year and sold out but I linked some similar options here, here, and here. A cute pair of white sandals are always a good idea for spring and summer!

I invested in these Valentino studded sandals last year and it was such a smart buy! Not only are they a cinch to get on and off, they go with everything and elevate any outfit you’re wearing. They’re definitely pricey but I’ve found a pair from Tuckernuck that look almost identical and are equally (if not more) comfortable and stylish!
If you are a regular reader or viewer of my Youtube channel, you know I’ve talked quite a bit about Golden Goose sneakers. Are they worth the price tag? For the longest time, I held out and refused to buy a pair. I finally caved because I thought, well, so many women love these, I need to review them and see what I think I did an entire post on my thoughts here. If you don’t want to spend this much on sneakers or you prefer a cleaner look, just invest in a clean pair of white sneakers for summer. I think they are a definite must! I
reviewed the popular Veja sneakers in this post.

It’s a good idea to have a killer pair of boots in your wardrobe no matter what the season. These python print boots work for spring/summer and fall/winter! They’re comfortable, sophisticated, sexy, and versatile. I also have them in black. They’re so nice, I bought them twice!

I think it’s also a great idea to have one pair of flat sandals that you can slip on and off like this pair above.
