Blank Slate

Kick off Memorial Day in all the white ways. By Kat Clements
These days, there aren't too many old-school fashion rules left to follow, and the one about wearing white after Memorial Day (yay) and after Labor Day (nay), seems about as antiquated as petticoats. So, even though we don't need the seasons to switch to justify donning the summeriest shoes of all, these beaming beauties are so stark and stunning that they demand a little ceremony all their own. In honor of the upcoming weekend, and a season of smart summer style, here are a slew of sandals and sling-backs in awesomely alabaster shades that will make you think twice about kicking off your shoes.
