3 Shoes to Wear This Summer

June 30, 2022

Disclosure: Thank you to DSW and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, worn and honestly reviewed by me.

Summer is officially here, my feet are pedicured and ready for some fun – but WHERE do I begin to find the shoes I need for every activity? Look no further than DSW! I. LOVE. SHOES. and if I allowed myself, my closet would be completely full of them. The problem is, I’d spend more time selecting the right shoe than I spend on my outfit each day.

I keep a few pairs of cute shoes I love for each season, making it easier for me to get out the door and on to the fun. Between their wide selection of sandals, sneakers and heels, DSW has you covered for every Summer occasion! And don’t forget to check out the accessories – so many cute options to complete your look effortlessly!

THE heel for every Summer occasion

Caital Sandal [TTS, shown in Beige Cork] / Macrame Ring Tote [White]

I’ve had my eye on cork heeled sandals for a couple of years but never checked out, but the price on this pair was too good to pass up! No boring neutrals on these feet – the cork adds a fun twist without limiting what I can wear them with.

Dressy, comfortable sandals

Gladiator Sandal [TTS, shown in Cognac]

I used to wear heels daily, but over the last few years I’ve realized how much more comfortable I am when I give my feet a rest. While I’m in a stage in life where I like to be able to get things done efficiently without worrying about my feet hurting – I don’t want to give up wearing cute shoes! These gladiator sandals are so comfortable for walking longer distances and dressy enough that I don’t feel like I’m sacrificing style for comfort.

Bonus – They velcro making them the easiest shoes to put on next to slides!

Tried and true sandals for ALLLLLL day comfort

Birkenstocks have been around for a long time, and with good reason! They’re comfortable, durable and oh so cute! I’m deeming them my go-to casual shoe of the Summer.

My go-to bag for venue events

Flap phone crossbody bag [Nude]

Thankfully this bag arrived just a few days before my husband I were headed out for a date night with Billy Joel [waiting two years for a postponed concert sure builds up a LOT of anticipation and the Piano Man did NOT disappoint!]. No joke – I saw multiple bags in the trash can by security because they were too big to enter the venue. I’m not a clear bag person, and couldn’t be happier with this alternative! It held my phone, cards, bobby pins, hair ties and car key – and was so lightweight it never got annoying to keep on the whole time.

There you have it friends – 3 shoes to get you through every event this Summer and 2 bags to carry everything you need no matter where you’re headed!
