The Broke Girl's Guide To Summer Sandals

Sun's out, toes' out — that's how the saying goes, right? Regardless, our piggies have been begging for some vitamin D, and we're not ones to say no. All that's missing is the perfect pair of sandals to put our warmth-craving tootsies on display. And, with all the summertime RSVP's rolling in, you're going to need a couple (or three, or four...) for every occasion, too. So, to help you make the most of your summer budget, we found the best digit-bearing footwear under $100 to ring in the season without stretching your wallet. If the shoe fits — and costs less than a Benjamin — it probably looks best in our closets.
