Every year, my toes eagerly await the first week in which temperatures hover around 70°. According to weather.com, that won't happen in New York City until May 11th [insert loud groan here]. It's a ways off (don't get me started on the shitty weather the Northeast had to endure earlier this week), but just think-- now you have more time to find the perfect pair of open-toed shoes for the summer. Below are six of our favorites, which you can dress down with shorts, or mix with a dress (we're digging stripes and florals right now) for a fancier look. No ridiculous, impossible-to-walk-in, sky-high heels in the bunch.
