Boots have been the star in many of our closets for the past few months, making it easy to forget to give our feet the TLC they deserve. Sandal season is fast approaching, and we want to help you get ready to expose those toes! The warmer weather spring brings is the perfect opportunity to let your tootsies come out of hiding, and maybe even show off a new paint job in some chic picks from our Spring 2017 sandal collection.
