Old Navy Shoes

I've mentioned before how Old Navy has been making surprisingly cute shoes lately, and their winning streak looks like it'll continue through summer. You go, Old Navy.

The leather peep-toe pumps, $44.50, manage to perfectly walk the line between "cutest girl at the office" and "cutest girl at the bar." They're sophisticated, yet fun; classic, yet sexy. I worry that the heel is a bit too chunky, but it would most likely make these easier to walk in, which is never bad. And the top is 100% leather, which means less likelihood of evil, foot-eating blisters on the back of your heel.

If those pumps are a little too staid for your taste, try the sling back wedges, $29.50. These are the perfect summer shoe for when you're ready to give the flip flops a rest: the cut-outs will keep your feet nice and breezy, and the slingback means you can toss them off and jump into the pool much more easily. I'm also a huge sucker for cute patterns on the inside linings of shoes; the attention to detail is very much appreciated. It's like having a tiny secret inside your shoes! This shoe also comes in a more practical black or brown, plus a dark green and slate grey. I sort of want one in every color.

A nautical-themed shoe? Of course I want it. The rope t-strap sandals, $19.50, will make even the most land-loving girl look like a natural sailor. The use of rope over the foot is adorable, and the addition of suede elsewhere results in a shoe that's not at all kitschy.
