By now, you may have realized that I love shoes. 
This time of year is the perfect time to start thinking about growing your summer shoe collection because everything is starting to get marked down!

Check out the shoes below you need in your closet :

 flats | post here & here|

Whether you opt for flip flops of flat sandals, you should have a nicer pair of summer  sandals somewhere in your closet.
This nicer option will get you through those lazy weekday mornings where you don't feel like wearing your heels or those last backdoor BBQ's with 95 degree weather.
I suggest going for a higher quality classic styled shoe so they will last a few seasons and won't show too much wear.
And just because I say higher quality doesn't mean I mean higher price...

heeled sandals (stacked heel) | post here & here |
Perfect for your casual days and nights during the summer heat.
I love a fun print to add a fun detail  to sometimes shoes that tend to get a little too safe.

 heeled sandal (stiletto heel) | post here |

Girls nights, weddings, date nights, clubbing any nicer event these should be your go to shoes.
You should start with a black or nude in a heel height that you are comfortable running a marathon in.
Just with either of these colors you are set, but then that is when you can add fun colors and styles into the mix (example: heels above)

wedges | post here & here |

I am not much of a wedge person, just because I have not found many styles that I truly love 100%, but they are a more comfortable option than a heel. 
Casual or dressy, wedges can be dressed up or down and give you the extra height & comfort while maneuvering through backyards this summer.
