Bringing Out Spring Shoes

Yesterday I said on Twitter, “The best part of Spring is wearing cute shoes.” Which is true, all winter I wore my Rachel Comey booties and for better or for worse, the nice weather made it easier to wear more skin baring shoes. Got this pair of Loeffler Randall Shoes for my birthday and they are the most fun to wear! With round espadrille heel and color blocked upper, it makes the perfect shoe to dress up every outfit. Not to mention they’re really stable so even the high heel is easy to walk in.

Although the first few days of sockless shoe wearing also means getting blisters galore, these days they have a multitude of different sock options, I opted for a KushyFoot Toe Cover found at my local drugstore, which pretty much saved my life today.

I’m also wearing dresses with bare legs a lot lately. For some reason in the last few years, wearing tights hasn’t been as appealing as it used to, so winter also meant wearing lots of jeans and pants.  Not so bad, but it’s nice to wear a dress! Here I’m wearing a summery dress under my brown mac, it’s warm but not jacketless warm yet… which is often my favorite kind of weather!

Watches are really making a come back. I thought for a long time cell phones made them obsolete, but as wrist candy they’re the most useful kind, after wearing my watch for a few weeks now, it kind of feels weird not knowing exactly what time it is without rudely pulling out my phone (or Instagram maker, as I’ve been calling it lately).

When I started wearing watches again, I was amazed by how much more convenient they were than cell phones! Like the time is RIGHT THERE, constantly. LOL.

So true! It feels great to be able to wear shoes without socks again! (The sore throat that I got this way does not feel so great.) Love your shoes!

Jasmine March 20, 2012 at 10:58 pm

Definitely my favorite part of spring as well! I love being able to wear a wider variety of shoes!!

I love that you’re wearing a jacket! I’m seeing crazy people out here in short shorts and tees, and it is not that warm yet. Your bag and shoes go really well together, not matchy matchy but just enough

I love how the heel is circular, such a great detail. I agree with you, one of the best parts of warmer weather is letting your footwear choices be more playful without freezing to death.

Fitting that you call it wrist candy, because that orange watch is like a tangerine Jolly Rancher.

I’m really glad that I stumbled onto this blog. Those yellows are cute and that’s a brand I’ll look into. I’ve some forever21 mustard-colored jeans since 2007 and i rarely wear them. Those J brands look really good and easier to style…up or down! I’ll definitely be visiting this blog again!

Erin March 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Beautiful shoes! I love the mix of textures.

Really love your blog — you’ve got a new follower.
