Spring Shoes

2014 Spring Shoes Trendsdress | booties | heels | wedges

It might not feel like it, but the official first day of spring is this Thursday and that’s the kind of occasion that calls for a new pair of shoes!  So whether you’re ready for open toes or not, there are three pairs that will get through every kind of occasion this season.

Spring Booties & Shoesone | two | three

Shoe #1: The Bootie.  Tired of wearing boots all winter long?  I feel your pain lady.  It’s not quite warm enough to bare my toes in NYC, so I’m gravitating toward a chunky heeled bootie (my current go to right here!).  I especially love them paired with a simple black dress and sans tights.  And the silver lining: booties season will give me some extra time to get my life together and give myself a pedicure!

Shoe #2: The Ankle Strap Heel.  I’m such a sucker for an ankle strap!  Whether they’re sleek and sultry to chunky and color blocked, I love that they how much they elevate an outfit.  If you’re on the more petite side, go for a thinner the strap.

Strappy Spring Wedgesseven | eight | nine

Shoe #3: The Strappy Wedge.  To all my Arizona friends who were already poolside back in January, you’ve probably skipped spring and headed straight into summer.  I’m slightly envious and counting down the days that I get to break out the strappy wedges.  I usually stumble around in heels, but wedges (especially a low wedge!) will always be jam.

What’s your shoe situation right now?  I’d love to hear what kind of kicks you’re looking forward to wearing this spring!

SJP Moment

SJP Shoe CollectionI think we’ve all channeled a bit of Carrie Bradshaw at some point in our lives, whether it’s making your way in a big city or recounting dating misadventures with your closest girlfriends at brunch.  Even I’ve had a Carrie moment, twirling around the city in an over-the-top tulle skirt.

So when Sarah Jessica Parker dropped her debut shoe collection SJP, I immediately fell in love with the playful twist on classics.  I’m talking strappy sandals with feminine features and timeless pumps with reimagined details.  The shoes are still a bit of investment, but at least you’re not forgoing an entire month’s rent like Carrie.  Check out my favorite picks below and shop the line at Nordstrom!

shoe talk: statement pumps

6 Must Have Statement PumnpsWhen it comes to building your wardrobe, every girl needs the classics.  Black pumps?  Check.  Nude heels?  Double check.  So once you cover the basics, there’s only one logical step from there: go wild.  Metallics, pastels and cobalt — the possibilities are endless when you’ve got a killer pair of kicks.  And if you consider sequin and leopard to be neutrals like I do, the rest of the outfit will just fall into place.
