You probably won’t believe us, but spring is actually around the corner. I know. It doesn’t feel like it at all, and I (Emma here!) can’t even remember what summer feels like. I’ve reached the point this winter where I’m tired of putting on a winter coat, boots, gloves, a hat, and a scarf every time I want to go anywhere. So, I’ll be the first to say that spring can’t come soon enough! Today we’re warming you up with some hot new styles for spring and summer sandals by the lovely folks over at Fibi & Clo. We’ve teamed up with the past and we love, love, love their sandals. Read on to see five new styles for summer sandals from their collection and see which pair got the EB Editor’s Pick! Whether you’re wearing a pair of summer sandals down the aisle or on your honeymoon, we’re certain you’ll find a pair to love from this collection. Enjoy!

I love the knotted detail and these were insanely comfortable. Plus, they don’t have too high of a heel (I was so nervous about tripping down the aisle). They do sit in a shoe box in my closet because I can’t bare to wear them and ruin them, but I think I’ll make an exception for our anniversary this year. :)
