Spring & Summer Shoe Edit
It’s been said that accessories are the punctuation to any look, and I definitely believe shoes can make or break your look. I’ve always had a thing for good shoes, and we’re finally carrying a selection at Council now. I could not be more thrilled to introduce Pedro Garcia and Schutz to our small, but ever-growing shoe department. We started carrying p448 sneakers a couple years ago because I personally wore them and always raved about their comfort level and how unique and different they were; it just made sense to add more styles to the mix. We’re completing your entire look in just one stop to Council or one online checkout these days.
So, what shoes do you need for Spring and Summer? The warmer months call for comfort, because on top of running around being super woman, you’re now dealing with the heat. And I believe neutral, versatile shoes are a must for Spring and Summer because so much of what we wear is bright and colorful, so let your shoes be the chic, neutral exclamation point to your fabulous ensemble.
First up, SLIDES. Slides are a must for shorts, dresses, vacation and even work. The Pola Slide from Pedro Garcia is extreme comfort meets elevated style with it’s metallic pebbled leather front strap and super cushiony footbed. Slide it on with our red linen Poppy Dress, or Distressed Cut Off Shorts and Stripe Vintage Tee. Our Enola Sporty Sandal is another must, just as comfy, but with a slightly higher footbed. The brown leather straps with gold bamboo buckles make a statement but keep it classy all at the same time. Slide the Enola Sandal on with the Yumi Floral Skirt and matching Evie Cami or keep it casual and pair with Saylor Linen Shorts and the Ely Gauze Shirt for a crisp Summer look.
Next, HEELS. And I don’t mean a giant stiletto that you might wear 3 x all season. I mean a super comfy, suede slide-in block heel that is just the right height- low enough to keep you moving and comfortable all day, but tall enough to give you that confident posture that only a comfy heel can give. Enter the Claris Heel. Pedro Garcia really hit the nail on the head with this style. In fact, they do a version of it every season, it’s that good. Wear the Claris with anything from Le High Straight jeans and Nadia Top to one of our many colorful Celia B dresses, or even with our Josh Top and Orti pants in a beautiful silky Summer brown.
Can’t have Spring and Summer without your favorite WEDGE. Our Viena from Pedro Garcia is the shoe I have been throwing on most this season. It’s the height you need from a wedge with the comfort of a flat. And the straps wrap snugly around your foot so no need to hang on for dear life and curl your toes every time you walk. I feel so cozy and secure in these fabulous, nude leather wedges. Pair them with your favorite Misa dress, Linen Shorts such as our Terra or Mesa Shorts with the Dani Coral Tee or Fatima Smocked Top, The Jenkins Dress, Cut off’s and the Wright Top, the list could seriously go on and on. Another sandal meets wedge that we love is the Mar Sandal. I like to call it the designer Teva, because it has the squishy, comfy footbed of a pool shoe, with silk straps- wow! What a beautiful combination and an awesome every day shoe. It can seriously go work to weekend. Pair with our oh-so-comfy Newport Dress and Elliott Linen Blazer, for work, weekend, or a day of travel, or with the Verde Shorts and Ilia Shirt for an upscale casual look.
Last but never least, our old standby’s the p448 Sneakers. You can’t go wrong with any of the styles. We’re obsessed with all of them for different reasons. Pair your favorite with shorts all summer, such as the Verde Shorts with Crop Veronica Sweater, or give them an upgrade with a fun skirt combo such as Fallon Skirt and Disco Cowgirl Tee. We love these for their insanely comfortable insole- they don’t even need breaking in! Seriously- I wore my first pair ever immediely all day on a trip to NY and never had a blister. They are as comfy as they are cool.
