As I've said before, I love going around barefoot in the spring and summer, but that isn't always practical. As I've also said, when I can't go around with naked feet, I like shoes that make it seem like I am. There are all sorts of different shoes to wear in warm weather, but here I'm focusing mainly – not solely, but mainly – on thongs and flip flops and things, some of which are completely casual, some of which are casually cool, and some of which are downright dressy!

These are saved from being entirely casual thanks to the foot beds, which are made of cork. I always love that style, although I have to be in just the right mood to wear it. Besides that, they're platform thongs, which you can easily pair with a colorful outfit to wear out to dinner, to the movies, shopping, and so on – and since they're cushioned, they'll also be quite comfortable.
