The item I have received the most compliments on this summer are my Nicole Women's Noble T-Strap Sandals. They are on sale now for $35 (give or take the color you choose), which is a great price for all leather sandals. These shoes bridge the gap nicely between work and casual, dresses/skirts and pants/shorts. For me, they did run a bit big, but if you have wide feet they may be just right.
I have them in Walnut.
