Spring Shoes.

I don’t know about you but I can’t even look at my Winter clothes right now!  Here in New York,the weather has been in the 60’s.  Part of me is skeptical – certain the chillier temps will be back to bite us any minute… the other part is jumping up and down like a little kid… thinking that Spring has finally arrived.  On the shopping front, I’ve been carefully adding a few new pieces to my wardrobe.. in particular, a few new pairs of shoes!

The first purchase were these bad boys from Sam Edelman.  I went with the bottom pair, as I LOVE the silver straps… also spotted here.  These are a must.  The chunky heel makes them unbelievably comfortable… and the metallic silver is so fabulous and on-trend for Spring.

And these ones are Shoemint!  The lovely people at Shoemint were kind enough to send me over a pair of their Lambert Platforms.  At 5″ high, they are way taller than Id normally go for.  But between the platform and the wedge, I feel like I’m walking in air and can miraculously manage them.  Kind of in love.  (If you order them, use my link + code STRIPES15, and get 15% offf!)

    I have looking at those shoes for a maxi dress I was planning on wearing to a wedding this month for that whole 70s boho vibe. This post might have sold me.
