I’m clearly in a summer shoe and bag hoarding stage. I feel when it comes to shopping with me I go in waves and in specific categories. I was on a bathing suit binge a couple of weeks ago as I tried on EVERY SINGLE SUIT I owned. I ditched swimsuits that were 10 years old, no more elastic, and so on. Which then resulted in me buying all new swimwear. Just the basics though. Aerie was having a hell of a deal and I replaced all my old, beat up basic bikinis. Right now though, I am clearly on a shoe and bag binge. Just got this little bag and this one. And then I’m hoarding all of the shoes!
I wanted to share a few of my favorite go-to summer shoes that will take you from now through the end of summer. From events to errands, to just lounging by the pool. These are my favorite summer shoes to grab right now.
The Best Summer Shoes To Buy
For me, a great summer shoe should do a few things. First, it should be comfortable! I am too old for uncomfortable shoes these days. Second, they should feel summery! Whether that’s canvas, rattan details or a summer print, I love a good shoe that feels like summer. And lastly, they shouldn’t be TOO expensive. Most of these shoes are at or around the $100 price point excluding the Schutz ones.
A Great Neutral Low Heel Sandal
A true mandatory shoe to have, a neutral comfortable sandal. Dressy enough to wear out or with a nice sundress, but also simple enough to pair with just jean shorts and a pretty top. I’ve been wearing these Schutz sandals nonstop but have to admit, they aren’t SUPER comfortable. They need a little more breaking in. These Sole Society ones are super similar if you want something under $100! Below are more neutral favorites that I am loving.
I finally stepped outside my STEVEN Greece slides (I own the white, black AND tan) and grabbed these cognac leather slides from the new shoe collection by cupcakes and cashmere. They’re super comfortable and go with so much. I’ve been sliding them on to quickly run errands without having to skip a beat because they go with everything. They basically live at my front door these days. More everyday comfortable slides below!
It’s no secret that I think espadrilles are a MUST HAVE for summer. I mean I did a whole damn post on it! These Castaner wedges are so comfy and are my second pair from the brand. You may remember these bow wedges. Another favorite, but sadly no longer available. These lace-up ones are great and go with so much. I also love these ivory lace ones too, so beautiful! They have tons of styles and colors to choose from too. Shop my favorite Castaner espadrilles below.
These cork slingback flats are a perfect addition to your closet. Great for the office, with a sundress, or how I styled them with simple jeans and a pretty top (coming soon to the blog). They come in three colors and are currently on sale for a little under $100. Bill Blass always makes a fun shoe and these are a perfect neutral! Cork shoes are always a great idea for spring and summer. They go with so much and instantly feel summery.
