Must-Have Summer Sandals

 

Summer Staple: Sandals
 
Although I've known of Melissa Shoes for quite a while, there has yet to be a pair that I really wanted to own. Sure the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania hearts are adorable and I marvel at the Campana swirly flats, but nothing has made me reach for my pocketbook. I respect their sustainability practices, fair labor choices and that their shoes are vegan, waterproof, recyclable and biodegradable. What's not to like? But now that the buzz around the Jason Wu collaboration is too loud to ignore I took a dutiful look at their website to discover the "We Are Flowers" Summer 14 collection has quite a number of styles I'd happily wear all summer long. After digging a bit more, (not all styles are offered in any one place but your best bet is shopmelissa.com) I culled a few of my favorite flats that could easily see me through the hot summer months.
