Hey guys! Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well! Mine is going, slowly. I'm still fighting off this sickness, fingers crossed it's gone by the weekend because I'm supposed to go on a little trip to D.C. to visit some friends from Tulane. Anyways, I made a post this fall about 10 pairs of shoes that I think everyone needs in their closet to have a well rounded shoe wardrobe for the season. I was thinking about posts I should make for Spring, and I thought that I would make another similar post. Spring and Fall are really the seasons where the weather begins to change to be colder or warmer, and thus I think they're the seasons where our wardrobes change the most too. So, without further ado, here are the 10 Pairs of Shoes everyone should have in their wardrobe this Spring.
TWO // Rainboots. This goes without say. Spring is a rainy season and therefore it's important to have a pair of waterproof shoes in your wardrobe to throw on for commuting to work, running errands, etc. I have a pair of the packable Hunter rainboots and I love them because they're foldable to put in my suitcase for weekend trips, I'm actually brining them down to D.C. this weekend as it's supposed to be fairly wet. I've seen some people rocking an ankle length rainboot for commuting into work and I'm thinking it might be nice to invest in a pair of those as well, especially as the weather keeps getting warmer.
THREE // Espadrilles. I love wearing espadrilles in the Spring and Summer. Not only are they comfortable, but they're totally in style and come in all different colors and patterns, at every price point. I'm eyeing up this adorable lace-up striped pair to add to my collection this Spring!
FOUR // The Spring Ankle Boot. If the ankle bootie is the quintessential fall shoe, then this warm weather version is the 2016 "it" shoe for Spring. These are perfect to throw on with ankle jeans or a cute dress for brunch or going out with friends. The best part is these can be worn right into Summer as they're breathable for your foot and will totally work with shorter dresses.
FIVE // Running Shoes. Now that it's Spring it means that Summer is right around the corner. With Summer many of us are working to get into that pair of shorts or that bathing suit that has been sitting in the back of our closet since September. Running shoes are essential to any Spring wardrobe so you can start getting your workout on and working on that Summer body.
SIX // Casual sneakers. A cute pair of slip-on sneakers is essential for your Spring wardrobe. These are perfect to slip on with jeans, dresses, skirts, etc. I wear my slip-on white sneakers pretty much every weekend when running errands or meeting up with friends. I suggest getting white as your first color and then expanding from there.
SEVEN // Peep toe wedges. These are the perfect work shoes for Spring. They are sophisticated, comfortable, and the peep toe can show off your new Spring pedicure. I suggest getting a neutral color like nude so you can pair them with lots of fun patterned skirts and dresses which are available right now at stores like Loft or J.Crew.
EIGHT // Perforated Flats. These flats are the perfect way to update your closet for the warmer weather. Now that the temperatures are rising you're going to want your outfits to breathe a little. The perforations are the perfect way to let your feet breathe a little, and add a little interest to your outfit. There are so many cute styles out there right now. I included navy in this round-up, because Navy is Black to me, but you could also get a pair in a cute pastel or white which would be adorable.
NINE // Wedge Sandals. These are perfect for wearing out on Spring/Summer nights, to special events, or to pack for your next vacation. A pair of neutral wedge sandals is a pivotal piece in any well-rounded wardrobe. I love all of Tory Burch's wedge designs, but there are plenty of other budget friendly options out there like these or these.
TEN // Block heel sandals. I'm a big fan of a block heel over a stiletto. Not only are they easier to walk in, but they are totally in style this year. I love this pair of shoes for work this Spring, or to pair with a dress for a Spring wedding, and since they're comfortable you could dance all night in them without needing a break.
Well, what do you think? What are some essential shoes in your Spring wardrobe? I hope you're having a great Wednesday!
