Shoe In

A great shoe is a woman’s best friend: They always fit, they lift you up (literally), and they know you right down to your sole. As summer comes to a close, let your sun-tanned toes enjoy this season’s best styles. From open-toed heels and strappy sandals to fun flip-flops and espadrille wedges, your feet will be soaking up those final summer days in style.

Remember those sparkly “jellies” from the 2nd grade? Well, they’re back and all grown up. This year’s designers showcased this throwback style on the runways and it has taken off. Wear funky flats to the pool, or even in the pool, or just look cute running errands. At night,

Let your man see a little skin in some sexy, strappy heels. This style is perfect for any summer occasion and allows you to beat the heat by letting your feet breathe. These emerald beauties by Anne Michelle are on trend for the 2013 season since Pantone deemed emerald the Color of the Year, calling the hue “Lively. Radiant. Lush.”

A summer staple is the espadrille wedge. Though a loyal companion to sun dresses, the espadrille wedge can also add a casual and fun flair to your most basic of summer outfits.  Give the ole white tee and jeans a boost with a colorful pair of these rope-heeled faves. Or, pair them with the popular chambray button-down and flowy skirt. The options are endless!

It’s not really summer until you break out the flip-flops. Arguably the easiest style to pull off, flip-flops are cheap, convenient, and fashionable footwear. Stick to the basics with an all-rubber, bright-colored version like Havaianas, or take a fancier route and slip on a patent leather or bejeweled style.

No matter what shoes you choose to treat your toes to this summer, be sure to enjoy them. Before you know it, it’ll be time for boots. Check back with us next month for a post on our fall foot favorites.
