If clothing options have you down right now, let shoe options lift you right back up again! I can’t remember a season where shoes seemed so varied and happy with an unending array of beautiful and fun (and comfy!) pumps, sneakers, slip-ons and so on to choose from.
Inside, some of the pairs I’m craving the most this Spring…
There are so many beautiful shoes out there, it can be hard to go through page after page trying to find something you can see in your mind but maybe not describe very well. I highly recommend Nordstrom’s Shoe Guide as a good place to start — it hits on many of this year’s trends without an overwhelming selection. And of course my list below should help too!
My goal for Spring shoes are ones that are cute and comfortable. These all fit the bill:
1 | The Charles by Charles David Melissa Sandal ($79) is a flat sandal with a bit of foot cushioning and pretty strap details across the foot.
2 | Matisse’s Whimsy Wedge Sandal ($80) reimagines the gladiator wedge as a more casual yet sophisticated affair.
3 | The Lattela Wedge Sandals ($89) are not only comfortable, they make my legs look amazing. Hello calves!
4 | I am absolutely head over heels (ha!) for these Garnet Perforated Ankle Strap Sandals ($195). The salmon color looks amazing with my Costa Rica tan, and the black is a beautiful shade that can be dressed up or down.
5 | These Ali Wedge Sandals ($100) also look spectacular with a tan.
6 | Metallic or suede? Either color of the Carita Lace-Up Wedge Sandal ($110) looks great to me!
7 | I love a little extra detail or fun on my sandals, which the Warrior Gladiator Sandal ($160) delivers in spades, err, fringe!
8 | When it comes to pumps, comforts in a mid-heel is key for me, and the Hazel Pointy Toe Pump ($120) delivers! When I find a pump I like I tend to buy it in multiple colors…the Sugar Pink and Gulf Blue are my two favorites.
9 | It’s been a few funny moments on the subway when I thought I saw a furry creature only to discover it was actually Sam Edelman’s Leya Faux Fur Laceless Sneaker ($100) on some girl’s bobbing foot. Now I want to join the party — probably in the white/navy combo.
10 | The Milicente Block Heels ($198) were surprisingly comfortable on, and have a cute mix of blue textures.
11 | Shiny gold sneakers? Count me as a fan of the Bastille Sneakers ($158)!
12 | I also quite like the Coaster Print Sneakers ($58).
13 | I am totally in love with the green color of the Fringe Slingback Sandals ($128).
14 | How cute (and beach-ready) are these Bibi Lou Beaded Sandals ($148)?
15 | Cute little fringes make the Malaga Gladiator Sandals ($88) extra fun!
16 | A perfectly-sized wedge and cute toe straps make the Gold Cork Wedges ($138) one of the top pairs of shoes on my wishlist.
17 | Tones of gold and brown make the Kaira Heels ($158) a very appealing pair of heels.
18 | I found the cutest flats ever, and they are the Tie-Front Flats in Berry Print ($148).
19 | I don’t do slides, but the Plaid Tassel Flats ($128) have similar traits and are beautiful.
20 | Speaking of fun flat sandals, the Lace-Up Suede Sandals with Pom-Poms ($128 + 25% off) make me want to unpack my flowy Spring dresses right this instant!
21 | You know already that I love my Colette Suede D’Orsay Pumps ($248, most recently on me here and here) in the powder blue and another color might be in my near future.
22 | This Boden heel is the comfiest heel I own!
23 | And this is my favorite leopard heel ever.
24 | Block heels make my world go round. I love the Lainy Ankle-Wrap Sandal ($158).
25 | The regular Lainy Sandal ($148) is also fantastic, and a beautiful color too!
