Okay, so maybe it's not quite time for shorts yet, but we're really, really ready to start wearing all of the springy sandals we've been seeing in lookbooks, catalogs, and store windows. And actually, it's not a bad time to start buying early — the right sandal is like your most beloved jean jacket: awesomely transitional. So, we've found 14 swoon-worthy pairs that we're willing to snap up right now, even if that means layering up on top (fashionably overcompensating, if you will) or snagging some adorable ankle socks to go with. Sure, the socks-and-sandals look might not be for everyone, but when it's done well, it's pretty much always a win. We say go for it — with strappy numbers as cool as these, your layered toesies are bound to look way more Marni than Mr. Mom.
