Do you get excited about warmer weather and spring and summer fashion? Let’s not forget shoes! I thought it would be fun to focus on great shoes. (Who likes alliteration?) I’m breaking down all my favorite summer shoes from casual to comfy to glam. There is something for everyone in this shoe collection. So… let’s get started.
1) Shoes with straps
Shoes with straps are very trendy this season, from flats to sandals and heels. These strappy espadrilles are a way to try the trend! If you’re looking for a shoe that transitions easily from spring to summer, these closed-toe beauties are for you! They are both comfortable and stylish with a very manageable heel. I love the lace straps and now I know how to keep them from sliding down! You can check out the style hack I learned in Spain for holding the straps on all day, here. I wear the color “Blush Linen” which goes with everything. This would be a perfect pair of shoes to pack for a vacation as they would work for sightseeing, dining out, shopping… and the list goes on.2) Elevated Sneakers
These Chloe platform sneakers are a splurge, but I love the unique blanket stitching and mixed media style. They are figuratively and literally…exalted! Can we talk about the platform? It’s 2.5″ and at 5’4″, I like a little extra height. They come in 4 other options including some fun colorful styles and black. I still wear a lot of Golden Goose sneakers too , also a great choice for summer.If you like a platform sneaker but need something a little more budget friendly, this would also be a nice option.

3) White HOT
White is another hot shoe trend this season! These Bottega Veneta mules are made of stretchy leather and are very comfortable (for heels). They also come in a beautiful neutral shade. These go beautifully with all your spring and summer outfits, from casual shorts to dressy maxis.

Braided sandal styles have been in vogue for a while now and there’s no sign of that slowing down. Raye links braided mules sold out fast last summer but they’re back and currently in stock in all sizes! On the right side, I’m wearing a similar pair from Express with a slightly lower heel. Both pairs are comfortable and would look great with Easter dresses, white dresses, Mother’s Day dresses or just jeans and a cute top like the one I’m wearing above.
If you’re looking for a white dress this summer, here are my favorites for women over 40.
Another heavy hitter from last summer were these See By Chloe platform espadrilles. I love them! I wore them so many times on our cross country trip (which you can read all about here). They are really comfortable and EASY to walk in because of the sturdy platform and ankle strap. You can stand in it for hours, no problem. This exact pair is sold out, but these are very similar and I really love the light and airy detail of the crochet fabric. A great pair of (comfortable!) espadrilles are a summer must-have.

6) Studded Sandals
You might also remember these Steve Madden studded sandals from last year. I wore them on trips to Arizona and Mexico and they are still going strong which says a lot about their durability! They were a bestseller last year, so I know you loved them too. The transparent straps are still very trendy and the studs are chic and cool. They are also very comfortable and easy to walk in. The studs remind me of the popular Valentino Rockstud sandals… which are beautiful too.

If you don’t have comfortable flip flops for the summer yet, what are you waiting for? I bought these Rag & Bone slides when I was in Spain last summer and now they are 50% off, here! They have a memory foam sole and spongy foot straps that basically make them feel like your favorite slippers, but you can wear them outdoors too!

8) Dressed heels
If you’re looking for a beautiful pair of summer luxury shoes for just about any event… that are also a breeze to walk in… then you’ll love these Loeffler Randall sandals! They have a low heel. Yay for a low heel! I love that they are gold so they really go with everything. And the knotted bow on the toe is so feminine and beautiful. These run narrow, so that’s a consideration if you have wider feet. Otherwise they run true to size. They also come in a slightly higher heel if you’re looking for a little more height!
9) Statement sandals
If you’re looking for a chic pair of summer shoes for a special occasion, wedding or just because, I have one word for these shoes…beautiful. These gorgeous, Cinderella-esque, Mach & Mach sandals are nothing short of stunning! When the light shines on them through the window, they sparkle endlessly. They were very comfortable (for heels) right out of the box, so no break-in time needed.
#10) Strapped Sandals
These beautiful white sandals combine two hot trends for spring and summer… white and strappy! This exact pair of Jagger sandals is sold out, but this pair from Tony Bianco is almost identical… And I love the updated square toe that is super popular right now. If you’re not a big fan of a high-heeled mule, the added ankle strap on this one offers a little more support while walking.
You know, I love a good bonus 😉I just wanted to point you to a brand new pair of summer shoes that I just ordered! I’ll be sharing more about it soon, but here’s a sneak peek…
