With my swollen pregnancy feet this summer, I’m mostly stuck in flip flops. But I do my best to work in as many cute shoes as I possibly can. As comfy as a flip flop can be, haven’t we all had that moment where we felt our cute outfit would be just a bit more polished with the right shoe? Even the day camp carpool or a casual family dinner can be elevated and have you feeling more confident — thanks to my favorite comfy shoe loophole, the summery skimmer. The great thing about the ones I’m featuring below is that they will all carry you effortlessly into fall, meaning no sudden flip flop-to-pump shock, whether you’re at work or play.
No one will notice if your pedicure is a few weeks outdated when you’re sporting these fab slingbacks from Stuart Weitzman. The low, woven heel and bone detail at the front create an easy, summery aesthetic while the warm metallic brown and easy buckle at the back will transition you flawlessly into fall. Now on sale for $138, Beren Shoes.
Perfect for work but comfortable enough to keep you going into the evening hours, these fun skimmers from Cole Haan are easy to slip on and will complement everything in your wardrobe. The snakeskin print creates fun texture against white linen, jeans and a loose top, floral prints, or whatever else you happen to feel like throwing on that day. Cole Haan D’Orsay flats, $128, Bloomingdales.
Oh my goodness, it’s a party on your feet! These awesome, go-anywhere black and white dotted skimmers offer limitless possibilities. I can’t stand how cute and comfy these are, whether you keep the look two-tone or add a few welcome splashes of color. $109, Anthropologie.
And speaking of a welcome splash of color, I am wild for these watermelon-inspired Sophia Websters. The Loca Patent Leather Skimmer features a playful shape, tiny lift, and hot pink piping on a mint base for a fun feel. These are a great pick for out to dinner, but just as nice on an afternoon stroll with the kiddos. $126-$350, Saks Fifth Avenue.
