Hi lovely people!
Spring is finally here! For the last few weeks, I have been purging my shoes and bringing out all my faithful favorites for warm weather and looking forward to finally parading around in some of my new additions as well! In the spring and summer I naturally gravitate more towards sandals and slides with the warmer weather, so I wanted to share some of my favorites with you today. These are just some of my go-to shoes for a neutral, basic spring look that I wear all the way through the summer. PLUS I found some great dupes for some of them so you can totally find something to fit your budget, whatever that may be!
Some of these I’ve had by my side for over a year, some are new to me this season and a few I’ve actually purchased for a second time! I wanted to share reviews and first impressions of everything I’m rounding up for you today and hopefully you’ll find it helpful as you start refreshing your spring wardrobe.
I had to include my favorite sneakers because this is actually my second pair! And for a pair of sneakers as expensive as these, you know I had to love them to splurge a second time. I have wore these with everything and walked a ton in them. They’re still my go-to shoes because they go with so much; dresses, jeans, shorts- everything! I wear them with these no-show liner socks just because that’s my preference, but you could totally wear them without if that’s your thing!
They fit true to size and the slip-on style makes them SO easy to get on and go especially if you’re a mom with a car-seat to handle or a pup to walk! These also make a great travel shoe because they come on and off so easy for any security checks you have to go through. Definitely worth the price!
I wanted to make sure I included a heeled sandal because I feel like everyone needs a good nude sandal for spring and summer and these have been a favorite of mine. I recently bought this pair after owning the suede version and wearing them so much that the strap broke! The reason I love these so much is because you can wear them with any dress you’d wear to a wedding- they go with literally everything! And let’s be real, who doesn’t have a wedding to go soon – it’s the start of wedding season after all. These are a leather rather than suede so I think they’re going to last a lot longer. The scalloped edge is so adorable and fun and the heel height is great which makes them super comfortable. If you’re not used to wearing heels they might be a little bit uncomfortable but it’s a great option if super high heels hurt your feet!
Steve Madden also has a great budget-friendly option to these which are on sale right now also. They are the ‘Carrson Heeled Sandal’.
I have amazing friends who just know me so well! My lovely galpal just got these for me at Target a few weeks ago while in the US and I think they are SO adorable! I can’t speak to the quality of them yet since they’re so new, but they would be perfect for hanging out by a pool or at the beach AND they’re a total steal at just $22. They run a little bit wide over my foot but I wouldn’t suggest sizing down since they’d end up being too short in the back.
This pair is a new find for me this season. I’ve worn them countless times since I got them a couple of months ago and they’ve instantly become a staple for me this spring. I was really shocked at how comfortable they are! The woven material has some stretch to it which kind of holds to your foot so they don’t slide off. I love them with jeans or dresses and really just can’t say enough good things about them because they are so cute and easy to slip on and run out the door!
This pair of espadrilles are by far the biggest splurge in this post but they’re SO adorable and I really love them. I’ve had them for over a year and they still look great so if you do invest in them, the quality is really worth it. I think they’re super fun and unique and a great way to dress up your jeans or shorts this spring.
I found a super cute dupe for them under $140 here!
That’s it dolls, what do you think? Leave a note and let me know if any of these are on your spring and summer must have lists? What is the one pair of shoes you cannot go the season without?
