Book Your Pedicure: Summer Shoes

I should begin by saying that I love a great shoe, but I am no Carrie Bradshaw. It isn't uncommon to find me in either my Havaianas or Mizuno running shoes during the summer. I do, however, know a great shoe when I see it, and these are my favorite picks for the summer. This year the staples of summer vary from the clog to the wedge and platforms to flats.

6. See by Chloe $355
7. BCBGeneration $79

I love flats because they are practical for work. For the working girl, here are a few of my favorite summer flats.

1. Sigerson Morrison $210
2. Kelsi Girl $90
3. Tory Burch $150

While selecting my favorites I ran across a few, how do I put this gently, interesting shoes. If you can pull these off more power to you, but they are not on my wish list. Out of respect for the designers, I did not name brands.

1. 2. 3.
1. $595
2. $895 (I am sure I can dig up my cousin's 1980s sneakers and add studs.)

3. $220
