These locally handcrafted slides made with vegan leather go with practically everything in your closet. You might want to get more than one pair because, they’re so versatile you may never want to leave the house without them.

These leather mules say “spontaneous, casual, and relaxed”, but are still polished enough to wear to work. Plus, the squared off toe is a must-have for the season.

You’ll be walking on sunshine and the colors of the rainbow all season long. Wear it with a maxi dress and you’ll dressed for anything from dinner and drinks by the pool, a trip to the beach, or even a chill afternoon of, say, running errands.

Don’t want to strut around sweating in stilettos, but find flats too casual? This slingback kitten heel is the perfect middle ground for weather like this. Get it in lime green to brighten up any outfit.
