This Shoe Is the Answer to Fickle Spring Weather

We found the prettiest mules that are equal parts chic and puddle-proof. 

By Jessie Sardina

When you live in the midwest, spring is a season that exists in fleeting spurts between freezing rain and April snowstorms (yeah, that really happened). One day, you’re happily skipping to work in a pair of strappy sandals; the next you’re dodging black ice in December’s salt-stained boots. Just when you think it’s safe to pack away the turtlenecks and heavy socks, the weather man throws another blizzard warning your way and foils your plan to rock that flowy midi dress sans tights. So what does one wear on their feet when the forecast is so fickle?

These days, when the weather is precarious and I just can't bear the thought of schlepping around in boots for another month, I find myself reaching for a pair of trusty mules. This season's fresh crop of totally walkable beauties combines the breezy air of a sandal with the practical coverage of a closed toe for the perfect dose of springy style without succumbing your toes to less-than-balmy temps (and if you're like me, revealing your less-than-beach-ready pedicure!). And since they look impossibly polished with everything from jeans and a tee to that aforementioned maxi dress, they're the perfect day-to-night accessory — no matter the temp.
