OMG SHOES: Spring Essentials

Shoes. OMG Shoes. Everyone knows that us girls LOVE our shoes, and for some reason, we can never seem to have enough. Unfortunately, not all of our shoe closets look quite like Carrie Bradshaw's. So, to simplify things a bit, we have your five essential shoes for this fabulous spring season. We have also supplied you with a few ideas on how to take these shoes from day to night no matter the weather!  

1. Cut-out Booties
This style is totally trending right now. The cut-outs make the shoe breathable and light for spring while still keeping an edgy appearance that can easily be taken from day time errands to date night dining.

2. Converse
These kicks are a classic and really never seem to go out of style. Traditionally a casual trademark, this style can be super cute dressed up too! Throw them on with your favorite high-low skirt to add some instant flare or pair them with jeans and a perfect spring jacket and you will be ready for any adventure.

3. Fancy Flats
Flats always seem to evolve throughout the seasons... which is amazing because there is always something new! Either go the traditional route and pair your most comfortable ballet flats with a dress and jacket for a night out with the girls, or mix it up and bring out a whimsical pair of oxfords. These bad boys will give you the same comfort as a flat but add a bit of sass. This metallic coating is so spring 2014 (check out our metallic inspiration board!)

4. Heeled Sandals
Every season requires a great pair of basic heels. We guarantee you will wear these on a very regular basis, and that is because they seriously go with anything! Pair them with a LPD (Little Patterned Dress) for night or, Bri's personal favorite, a sweatshirt dress for day. You will look sexy and springy all at once. Can it get any better!?

5. Chunky Wedges
Neutral wedges are an absolute must! This chunky style adds edge and height to your look while remaining surprisingly comfortable. For those girls who tend to shy away from an uncomfortable heel, try a wedge like these -- you really wont be sorry. Add socks for a super stylish day look, then pair with that fabulous spring blazer you have been dying to wear for cocktail hour.

We do firmly believe that a girl can never have too many shoes, but when decisions must be made these five stylish staples will always be the perfect companion for your busy feet. Remember to never limit yourself and don't be afraid to try something new. Just because an item may have its own traditional purposes doesn't mean it cannot be re-imagined into something new. Your style is you, and you are great, so let you shine and let's get some shoes!

Truly Yours,
