Summer is flying by, and Outside Lands just a little more than a week away. (If you're sitting this one out then take this as a friendly reminder to avoid Golden Gate Park from August 9 to 11.) Weather in SF may not be nearly as cut-offs-friendly as the desert at Coachella, but boho chic is still the wardrobe call—just remember to layer. And stomping from one stage to another demands sensible (but fashion-forward) shoes. This season's boots and sandals make just as big of a statement as the rest of the outfit. So prepare yourself to get groovy with Paul McCartney and to get funky with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs by stocking up on a few of these little numbers.
