2 Must-Have Shoes for Summer

FashionVeronica ArrietaComment

My summer shoes are centered around four things: light, comfortable, neutral, and cute. But then again, who wants to wear an ugly shoe?!

We've already been getting some warmer weather in San Francisco which is giving me all the feels for summertime. Don't you feel like your shoes make or break your outfit? And don't lie, you've totally asked the "what shoe's look better" to your girlfriend or boyfriend as you're hoping back and forth from each shoe. 

This summer, there are two must-have shoes that you need and lucky for you, I've already narrowed them down. 

1. The Tie Sandal

The wrapped-ankle-gladiator look is pretty much everywhere right now. I love it because it's dressier than your standard slip flop, looks great with jeans, a dress or romper, and will last in your closet. I also love how you could do more of an exaggerated gladiator look up your leg, or just wrap it around your ankle for another look. 

How to wear it: This tie sandal definitely compliments any boho look, but honestly I think it looks great with jean shorts and a tee, a long maxi dress with a slit, a romper, etc.  

2. The Tie Heeled Sandal

I think this tied heel sandal took the place of a wedge. I love that the heel is a bit chunkier so you can get away with wearing it both dressed up or down. And the ties just make it playful. 

How to wear it: These are great to wear with a summer dress, a romper, skirt, a day wedding guest dress, etc.

I've had my eye on this dress ever since Emily Schuman from Cupcakes and Cashmere launched her clothing line in Nordstrom and Shopbop. I loved how it was the perfect dress to dress up or down, and can easily be transitioned from summer into fall. This Cupcakes and Cashmere Laurel chiffon shift dress is made with a sheer, ivory-colored material that's lightweight and great quality. I especially love the drop waist because it adds that flirty touch. This dress is perfect for summer with these sandals. But also perfect for fall when topped with a leather tailored leather jacket and booties. I'm not typically a dress girl, but this dress will be on repeat for me!
