Spring shoes are great, but can be tough with temperature swings. My winter shoes (like booties) might work for the weather, but the outfit style might look too wintry. I would actually say that my shoe choice for the day is what dictates the rest of my outfit. Is it warm enough for open toes? Am I walking a lot? Are these too summery too wintery?
These are my very favorite shoes for spring. Kind of like an essential spring shoe guide:
Margaux Ballet Flats // These are my “ride or die.” I have a few colors, but in the spring the ballet pink or navy are my go-tos. They are so comfortable. And the quality is incredible. I am not gentle on my shoes so I need a pair that can hold up and these do. Without having to handle them with kid gloves, you can really just throw them on and go. I have worn them with slightly dressier looks and while walking miles touring a city. I also think it’s worth noting that I wear these whenever the weather is warm enough for bare ankles, not just in the springtime!
White Sneakers // My usual white sneakers are the classic canvas Supergas. I love ’em. They’re kind of a B to break in, but once you get through that, they’re the comfiest. Right now I’m also breaking in J. Crew’s new sneakers and I have a feeling these will be worn a lot in the coming months!
Hunter Boots // Another pair of year-round shoes for me, but these come in handy particularly during the spring months. April showers is a little bit of misnomer considering we typically have a lot of wet spring days, April or not.
Jack Rogers // Now, at least up here, it’s rare that we have a warm enough day for Jacks, but they do happen!!! I just whipped out mine for the first time (well besides going to and from pedicures) while down in Hilton Head and it felt good to have them back in my life. I actually just ordered a new pair of navy sandals and I know they’ll be put to good use this spring/summer. (I have a navy/white pair with a monogram, but I’m kind of sick of the monogram which I literally never in a million years thought I’d say.)
Low Heels // I swear these are the best shoes ever invented. I have a tough time wearing heels right now, and these are just enough height without pain for me. Super comfortable. The nude shoes are definitely the most versatile, but if you’re looking for something more fun, try a gingham pair or scalloped pair. (I have both and love.)
