What’s On My List: Comfy Shoes For Spring

There comes a time every few months when a girl needs to revamp her shoe wardrobe, and my favorite season for this is spring.  As the days get longer and the temperatures climb, it’s time to bring out those sun-loving wedges, strappy heels and flat sandals.  I have a few go-to warm weather shoes, notably my piping-hot pink Fendi strappy heels and my Michael Kors platform wedges.  And while I have countless peep toe pumps and high heels that are great for work and nights out, I’m currently searching to add a few good pairs of everyday comfy shoes to my collection.

And when I say comfy, I’m not talking granny shoes.  I need these shoes to look hot and feel amazing, whether I’m at the office, out on the town or walking the dog.  I’m always on the lookout for shoes that are kind to my feet, especially in the warmer months when I’m more active and need my cute shoes to keep up with me.  There are a few brands I know I can trust for comfort and style, including Naturalizer, Clarks (they have some great wedges), and of course comfortable born shoes.  These Born wedges are really starting to call my name…you can’t beat the combination of natural cork and metallic leather!

In the next few weeks I’ll be highlighting some top shoe picks for the warmer months.  But now I want to hear from you – what are your go-to comfy spring shoes?  Which brands do you trust, and which do you steer clear of?

Spring Essential, #1: Sam Edelman Dawson Sandal

As part of this week’s “Spring Forward” topic , I present to you the first featured spring shoe from my closet…

Sam Edelman Dawson Sandal in black

Sam Edelman‘s low wedge “Dawson” sandal is the perfect casual style to complement sheaths, knits and denim. The intricate beading and polished stones create a trendy look that is as versatile as it is edgy. The universally flattering strappy design is flirty, and the soft toe post and covered heel ensure a comfortable fit. I’m sure this will be one of my favorite embellished sandals of the season!

Monticello ‘Anna’ Lavender Suede High Heel Sandals

monticello

Monticello Shoes sent me these lovely ‘Anna‘ sandals (great name, right?!), and I was smitten from the moment I felt the smooth, sumptuous leather and observed the high quality and attention to detail that went into these shoes, handmade in Brazil.   They are flawless!  The embedded flowers on the t-strap are a nice feminine touch, and the MS Signature is carved beautifully into the sole.  If you shy away from heels because they hurt, take comfort in the fact that all Monticello heels feature MS Signature comfort padding, so you can wear these 4-inch heels all night long.  Shoenistas, I know you’ll love the fact that these sandals cost $165.95 – a lower cost than mainstream designer shoes.

I have worn the Anna sandals for a night out and not only did they receive compliments left and right, they were pretty comfortable.  Plus, lavender is one of the prettiest hues to wear in the spring!  All Monticello shoes are handmade in Brazil from the finest materials in the world.  Get your own pair of Monticello Shoes today!
