Today I’ve got Spring shoes on the brain! I know I’ve said it before but it’s official… I can’t look at my winter clothes any longer… let alone shop for them. So I’ve been doing a whole lot of wishful thinking – dreaming about open toed sandals, pretty slides, and wedges. It’s time to shop. Also, I might add that right now UGG is hitting things out of the park… (in the collage above styles 8, 9, 10, and 11 are all from UGG – available at Nordstrom.) Cute comfy, and affordable – perfect!
When it comes to shopping for Spring shoes, there are two key things I want to stress…
First, silhouette: The three key silhouettes (in my humble opinion) that you need are as follows:
- Wedges (think of a great sandal that you can where to the office or dance all night in at a wedding – and not stomp through the grass!!)
- Slides (my fave trend for Spring… comfy, flat… lots more slide options can be found here.)
- Something Strappy (that sexy sandal that you reach for time and time again. It can be a wedge (this pair is fantastic!) Bonus points if it has a block heel… another key Spring trend.
Second, color: This is boring but nearly all of my Spring shoes are in the same color family: nude, camel, or cognac. Nude heels elongate + slim your legs, and go with everything… so I don’t really see a reason to wear other colors. Of course I’ll buy a black pair here or there, and maybe a white pair because white shoes are so trendy right now… but for the most part, all of my Spring shoes are nude/camel/cognac. If I’m feeling adventurous or have a party, then I go for gold. Like I said, it’s a little boring, but it’s all about what’s most flattering: why would you choose a shoe that cuts your leg at the foot or ankle when you can have one clean line?
