Shoes for Your Summer

Summer calendars are filling up for some of us, which means more decisions to make about outfits we haven't worn in... a while. Picking a pair of shoes to wear seems a bit daunting right now, especially after the past year plus of wearing...mostly slippers, probably?! (And maybe Crocs, unfortunately.) But stress no more because our team rounded up some of our favorite shoe picks for summer. Whether you’ve got a beach trip, summer wedding, or outdoorsy adventure on the horizon, we've got you covered.
