Today marks the first official day of spring, which means it’s time to bring out those sandals! During this week I’m going to present to you a few shoes from my own collection that I just can’t wait to wear. LOOK FOR VIDEO CLIPS! :) I’ll be showing off embellished flats, thong sandals, sandal booties and more, so stay tuned! Now here are my thoughts on some of the top shoe trends for spring 2011:
My favorite! This is a popular look every spring, but this year look for flats, wedges and even platform pumps with rope soles. If you only buy one shoe for spring, I suggest the Kelsi Dagger Ivy espadrille wedge, so chic!
The military shoe trend is still going strong, especially when it comes to open toe booties. These Report Mozelle open toe ankle boots are the prefect way to make your favorite sundress less frou-frou and more fashion-forward.
I am not at all a fan of flatforms. Sure, this style gives you a bit of lift without pitching you forward on your toes, but I don’t see anything avant garde or “good-looking” about these shoes. They’re not at all flattering, or easy to walk in for that matter. But I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention them here, because they’re being touted all over the fashion blogosphere as one of the hottest trends to watch. At least I’m not alone – ShoeBlog wonders why flatforms are sweeping spring shelves.
The higher and brighter, the better! I particularly love wedges with bold prints, like these Julian Louie for Aldo wedge booties. Wait until you see my Michael Kors wedges, they’re super-high, super-light and I swear I can wear them all day long.
Embellished Flat Sandals
This week I’ll show you my favorite new pair of flat sandals, with plenty of elegant embellishment. No one should have to resort to regular old flip flops when you can wear these Jessica Simpson embellished thong sandals!
