I am not the type of person who gets a thrill out of sandal season. Warm weather, yes. But having my toes and feet exposed in New York City, not so much. On top of that, regular pedicures get expensive, and I just love the comfort of a pair of boots.
Despite my mother’s pleas for me to invest in some cute open-toe shoes to go with a pretty dress, my average sandal usage per summer season is around 10. And honestly, there are so many great outfits you can wear with boots in the summer, why even try? It gives a frilly dress a little edge and a monochromatic look more room to play.
So with summer just around the corner and my sandals still tucked deeply away under my bed, I spent my time looking for street style inspiration on how to fully lean into my summer fling with boots. You’re welcome fellow sandal skeptics.
