Microtrend: Espadrilles

While slipping on a pair of flip-flops or sandals every day during the spring and summer seasons is the bee’s knees in our book, you gotta admit… The casually-cool-yet-classically-chic demeanor of a pair of espadrilles is unbeatable. What was once only a flat shoe worn by the likes of peasants has become a warm weather staple for both men and women alike. Wondering why this trend has become such a coveted repeat offender? Well, when a shoe works so well with the dresses and the denim pieces in our lives, we can’t help but revert back to that old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

C’mon, what other shoe can instantly transport you to a serene sailboat, coasting along the Mediterranean, with Zac Efron by your side? Okay, so maybe you don’t dream in nautical like we do; no biggie. These jute soled babies can be worn for a plethora of other occasions too, like an outdoor summer wedding or those casual trips to the farmers’ market every week. And if you need a little outfit inspiration, just take a gander at our street styled ladies above. Now do you get the picture? We thought so.:)

Whether you’re actually getting away or strictly staying poolside during these haute days to come, remember: what’s on your feet totally matters. And, girl, don’t be discouraged. Whether you fancy flat or wedged, printed or plain, there’s a pair of ‘drilles out there for everyone.

Ahh. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the air is all kinds of fresh. And while the weather has been mighty unpredictable as of late, one thing is for certain today: Thursday, March 20, 2014, officially marks the First Day of Spring. So whether you actually have a spring break or you’re just happy that the sun is still out after work hours, you finally get to bust out that ol’ spring to-do list that you created months ago (you know, the one that you carved into your frozen window pane).

But wait, before you walk out of the house in your T-shirt and sweatpants again (frumpterable is in, we get it), take it from us and show off those gams instead. After all, nothing says spring like a fun and flirty frock. To help you get a head start on what’s waiting for you outdoors, here are six different dresses for six different springtime destinations. Word of advice: get out there now because who knows how long this glorious weather will last. Here’s to hoping that Mother Nature really got it together this time!

Our Five Fave Shoes for Spring 2012

Every month we’re bombarded with declarations telling us what we need for the upcoming season. We find ourselves stressing over locating the perfect pair of flared trousers or scoring the semi-sheer printed shirt of our dreams. But, we often forget that there’s one super duper easy way to upgrade your outfit: shoes. So, for your enjoyment our stylist found the five pairs of shoes we know you’ll love for Spring 2012.

1. american flag lace-up bootie
Why you’ll love ’em:
These booties are flying off the shelves because they’re quirky, cute, and insanely comfortable. Plus, despite the seemingly wild print, they’re incredibly versatile.

2. polka dot bow accented heel

Why you’ll love ’em: The silhouette of this platform shoe is undeniably classic, but the print is fun and flirty. Additionally,  doesn’t the bow just feel like spring? 

3. studded wedge

Why we love ’em: Wedge sandals are great for the warmer months, but some options can leave you feeling kinda bored. That’s why we’re loving these spiked wedges with metallic accents- the trim is modern and the spikes are completely on trend.

4. linen finish skimmer flat

Why we love ’em: A slightly unfinished vibe makes these flats so perfect for spring. We especially like the idea of pairing them with a flirty floral frock and if the weather is a little chilly, add a denim jacket.

5. zigzag toe sandal

Why we love ’em: Toe sandals happen to be a staple for spring, much like wedges, but you may find yourself uninspired by most options. However, that won’t be a problem with these tribal printed sandals because the pattern is funky and function as a way to dress up even the most boring of footwear.

What was your fave shoe? What other trends are you excited for this spring?
