Take a look below at the 10 styles I pulled and don't be surprised if your stilettos start to gather dust.

Darla Slide Sandal

The godsend of shoes, mules are perhaps the easiest and chicest non-fuss shoe of the century. They slide on quickly as you rush to get ready in the morning — in my closet, it's probably the style I have the most of! Animal print is big right now, but this pink python pattern is a stand-out among the other neutrals. Wear these with a solid top and vertically striped paper bag pants for some interesting pattern play. ($48; nordstrom.com)

Everlane The Day Heel

Looking for a heel that can take you to and from work without killing your feet? Stick to a mid-height block heel for a dressed up and comfortable heel you can wear all day long like the Everlane Day Heel. With an average of 4.5 stars on almost 4,000 reviews exclaiming its wearability and classy look, you don't have to just take my word for it. It comes in six leather colors, three suede options, and two metallic choices so you have ample options. Plus, this heel looks equally at home with a pencil skirt or jeans. ($145; everlane.com)

Jeffrey Campbell Lindsay Sandal

Stilettos seem like the shoe to wear for a night out, until you misstep on a crack in the sidewalk and take a tumble. Let's be real here, a high block heel is the way to go. It's just as sexy as a stiletto and keeps you balanced on uneven ground. It would be a huge mistake if I didn't share with you all this dazzling disco-ball crystal heel by Jeffrey Campbell for your next girls night. It's supportive, stunning, and the ankle strap is velcro, which is a major game-changer IMO. ($160; nordstrom.com)

Schutz Kamila Slingback Pumps

Kate Middleton and Kate Hudson are just a few of the many celeb fans of the affordable Schutz brand. So when I came across a block heel pump from the famous brand, I knew I had to let you all know before it inevitably is spotted on a celeb and sells out in seconds! Metallics go with anything, and the slingback style of this heel means it's made for summer. Style these quirky pumps with a fun two-piece set to the next summer wedding you RSVP'd.

A New Day Michaela Pumps

The timeless toe and ankle strap sandal is a shoe every woman should have in her wardrobe. It goes with everything, and it adds just the right amount of height to step your outfit up a notch. You've probably already spotted Sam Edelman's expansive collection of block heels, but they average around $100 and it's hard to pick just one. My tip — save your money and head to Target for almost identical block heels at a quarter of the price! I own this shoe in multiple colors and I love wearing them with my breezy formal maxis and casual mini dresses. ($25; target.com)

Black strappy UO heeled sandals photo

UO Alexa Strappy Sandal

The sandal focus this summer is all about '90s straps — long, skinny, and frankly, the more the better! A lot of these styles tend to slide on or end the straps at the ankle like the best-selling Topshop sandal, but what I love about these UO sandals is how the straps continue up the leg. The criss-crossing ankle wrapping straps along with the nearly 3-inch block heel make legs look longer, leaner, and ready for anything. Just remember to rub some sunscreen on to avoid some serious tan lines! ($49; urbanoutfitters.com)

Chunky and funky, I've found the shoes for those of you who like to take a walk on the wilder side. These block heel clogs by Matisse set themselves apart from the rest of the shoes on my list with their thick wooden soles and spotted cow hair straps. The platform style heel is great for those of you looking to add height to your frame without arching your foot to an uncomfortable curve. ($115; freepeople.com)

Matiko Circa Slingback Pumps

Notice something different about this block heel? It has a spherically curved heel! This small but important detail takes these shoes to an artistic level that I am living for. The woven cowhide leather of the rest of the shoe is at home for a summer picnic. Add a flirty wrap dress and you're ready to eat a charcuterie board on a blanket in the sun and take an Insta pic.
