This past weekend, NYC felt like summer for one glorious day. Everyone was wearing sandals and shorts, and it quickly got me thinking about how I really can’t wait for real summer weather. (It might also have to do with the fact that this weekend, I celebrated my 25th birthday by treating myself to an all-white pair of Valentino Rockstuds.)

As the temperature rises, there are plenty of cookouts, pool parties and other casual, outdoor activities to look forward to. It’s time to bring out the open-toe sandals, espadrilles, canvas sneakers, mules, slides and even a controversial summer staple, the Birkenstock. There are many causal footwear options to choose from, and if you’re a season-pusher like me and you’re ready for 4th of July weekend, here’s some of my favorites this season! (We also have a roundup of the best spring flats you can start wearing now!)
