Yes, I know Spring isn’t here, yet. However, with all these warm sunny days we’ve been experiencing, it’s hard to not start thinking about Spring. Better yet, it’s hard to not start thinking about the things we want to wear this spring. As usual, I’ve started my seasonal style preparations by pinpointing the shoes I’m wanting this season. In order to create the perfect spring shoes edit, you have to narrow down where you will be wearing said shoes. Fortunately, for me, the places I go the most don’t require a professional dress code. So, my shoe edit is casual, but has has some chic elements to make them work-friendly, as well.
It’s almost ballet flats season. Well, ballet flats work all year and in different styles. Last year, it was all about ballet flats with laser design cutouts and thin lace-up. However, this season, it’s all about the look of traditional ballet flats with solid flat shoes and wide ribbons to lace-up up your ankle.
Ballet flats are shoe staples, because they are cute and comfortable. Other than being super comfortable, another great thing about ballet flats is that they are very versatile.You can pair them with dresses, short, or add a feminine look to your favorite well-worn boyfriend style jeans.
Although the lace-up ballet flats have the traditional style and design of ballet flats, they are available in different colors, fabrics, and textures. Personally, I’m crushing a pair of velvet ones, myself.
If you would like to get in on the lace-up ballet flats fun, check out these options I found that are not only cute and comfortable, but also very affordable.
For the past few weeks (maybe months), I’ve been obsessing over velvet booties. Velvet is such a winter fabric, but I’ve always been a little indifferent about wearing velvet shoes. Wet velvet can’t be a good idea, right? Yet, despite my logic, velvet ankle boots have been popping up everywhere. So much so, that I’ve developed an obsession. You can get a pair of these ‘it’ shoes in various colors and prints, if that’s your thing.
So, please join on the plight of finding a pair of cute velvet booties.
I’ve been having a very difficult time selecting the right shoe in the morning. Here in Memphis, the weather has been very typical; inconsistent. One day it’s a perfectly chilly day to wear your favorite denim jacket and the next day you find your self looking under your bed for your other black flip flop. I was so frustrated with my fall shoe options while I was getting dressed this morning. I needed an option that was chic and comfortable enough to wear to the office, but didn’t have many options. The answer was a pair of leopard print loafers.
I firmly believe that every stylish closet needs a pair of leopard print loafers, which I had until this past spring. I wore out my Jeffrey Campbell loafers until they were too big to wear. Leopard print loafers are so easy style and comfortable to wear. So, I need a new pair ASAP! There are plenty of options out there and here are the ones that I’m leaning toward.
Aside from cozy sweaters and big mugs of hot chocolate, fall shoes are the best. From booties to loafers, I love all the different options available for braving the cold. But instead of focusing on the traditional types, this post is going to touch on some of the more unique, but equally stylish, footwear that’s trending for autumn. Take a peek at my picks below to get some seasonal inspiration!
