1. Those looking for an easy summer shoe – I’d recommend checking out  these excellent mules, from Mercedes Castillo.

I’ve wanted some heeled mules for a while but I have a problem with many of the styles – I feel like too much of the back of my foot is exposed without support, and the shoe keeps feeling like it’s going to fall off.

Plus, the price isn’t bad at all! Please share if you have experiences with this brand.

I also found these shoes at Nordstrom, but with a higher heel. I need the middle height!
