Get that spring your step

The sun is out and the UK has suddenly ditched its frown and replaced it with a smile.  It was a long time coming but it seems light is at the end of the tunnel.. spring is here!
I've put my boots to the back of the shoe cupboard and reached for my spring shoes, but discovered I have a severe lack of footwear to cater to this time of year.  I have popped some of my top footwear picks below, that I think need to be added to your wardrobe this season.

The immediate thing that drew me to these Accessorize shoes, was of course the stunning colour.  I adore this shade and they'd look amazing with just your jeans, coral nails and a white tshirt.

 Don't you just love them?  I want these!  They are the Accessorize Putney Simple Suede Point Shoes in turquoise blue and are £29.00 

You can never go wrong with tan heels, and these French Connection ones are a must.  Very simple in their cut but effortlessly stylish.  The beauty with heels like these is they work perfectly with white linens and summer outfits, but equally so they're superb with skinny jeans.

Tan heels are a great investment for your spring/summer wardrobe, my main rule of thumb is to opt for something simple and build from there - a great start are these French Connection Donna Buckle Sandals are £95.00

Statements are always great to make every season, even if its only slightly stepping out of your comfort zone.  I'm a big fan of wedges in any form mainly because I gain height and I can walk easily, but throw in some with a pattern and I'm immediately sold.  The Clarks pair below are ideal for summer with a bright collaboration to really set the look off.

I do love some statement shoes especially ones with a fun pattern.  If you love something different you'll love these wedges from Clarks... yes I did say Clarks!  But the great thing about them being from Clarks is you know they aren't going to kill your feet and they'll be well made. Fantastic to wear with some neon as well to really set the look off. The Clarks Scent Eley White Combi are £79.99 


You can't welcome spring in without introducing floral... it'd be like having Christmas without Santa!  I've seen previous seasons opting for some platform floral heels, but these from Ted Baker are the best I've ever seen.

Teamed with delicate pastels that are quite minimalistic, really make these shoes work best.  Again I've added a slight neon hint to pick up the bright tones on the heels themselves.  These gorgeous Ted Baker Fluuri Open Toed Platforms are £130.00


Next are some fun NLY Malene nude heels with a touch of cheeky lemon. I do love nude shoes, but having a light tone of yellow makes this pair ideal for spring.

I have popped the heels with a very cute, Jones and Jones -  Jones and Jones Shannon Lime Prom Dress, which is an extremely feminine cut - making this all too perfect!  To push it that extra step I've suggested a gorgeous pink for maybe nails or even a floral hair piece.  These NLY Malene Nude heels from Nelly.com are £47.95.

It's all about beautiful colours at the moment and that's certainly emerged into the shops.  I went into Monsoon and they are literally blooming with nothing but!

You will always need to wear your jeans whatever season it is, but I'm a firm believer you can still look good whilst doing it. One thing I love is to add little flats and I absolutely adore these Monsoon Bora Bora Ballerina flat that are £35.00


There you have some of my top picks for shoes to add to your springtime wardrobes! What I've gathered from my shopping and browsing, is that it's all about colours...if you hadn't gathered!  I certainly want to add plenty of vibrant and pattern pairs to my collection, do you?!


What do you like the best?

  3. aww I really need to sort out my summer shoes - I've got a tiny little wardrobe so I always need to alternate between summer and winter wear - can't wait to get my summery clothes out now, but I think I'm best off waiting for a little more sunshine...
