Shoe Report: Spring Trends

The sun is shinning a little brighter knowing Spring is right around the corner.  It means bright colors and no more boots outside.  I’m excited for this Spring because we’re bringing it back to basics.

A special thanks to Nordstrom and for letting me feature their beautiful shoes.

Happy Day Trend 1: Fancy Flats 

Yes, flats have stepped up in the fashion world.  For me, flats aren’t my favorite style but what I’m seeing for spring I’ll be putting more of them in my shoe collection. You’re going to start seeing very detailed flats and you’ll have a lot of opportunities to dress them up.


The purple flats from is the perfect example of attention to detail.  They’re very simple but the waves on the edges adds such a stylish look.


These tan and blue flats from are perfect because they’ll bring you right into summer. Plus, they incorporate another trend I’ll be talking about later, color blocking.  These are simple but can add some color to your outfit.


You’re going to see a lot of t-straps this spring and why not add them to flats.  I love this line of Halogen flats, they look great and so sharp.  I can see you adding these with white pants and a sassy blouse.


These beautiful studded Valentino flats take my breath away. The rock studs on them adds a little edge to the look along with the point on them. A must have in your closet is a pointed flat for sure!

Happy Day Trend 2: Powerful Pumps

The silhouette of the stiletto will never go out of style but for this season we’re making the pumps the center piece of the outfit. You’re going to see a lot of really creative heels. It’s finally time to turn down the outfit and turn up the pumps!


These heels from add some real class to an outfit.  I love that they are simple just in case you don’t want to jump into this trend head first but still looks like you put some thought into picking out my shoes.  The different textures within the shoe adds just enough detail.


These zebra pumps from and can take the place of your black pumps.  These are the perfect example of the “powerful pump”.  It brings texture and extra style to your outfit.


HOT PINK!!!  These are simple yet can add such a fun pop of color.  The idea of a powerful pump is to have the option of something different than red being your pop of color.  If you look closely these patent leather Saint Laurent pumps have an upper lining and leave a side open. Such a great accent to add to the design.


These peep toe Paul Green sandals are perfect for a Spring day. I love that although they aren’t your classic pump they still create a statement.  The asymmetrical zipper on the side along with the peep toe lengthens your legs, especially if you wear them with a skinny pant.  These are also great for a person who doesn’t love a high heel.


Okay, I’m going a little rogue with this pick but I had to include these wedge sandals. This Kork-ease wedge has such a strong look to them. I love the two tone tan and a wedge is a great way to get height without the strain of a pump.

Happy Day Trend 3: Color Blocking 

Color blocking has really come a long way. Designers are taking advantage of the entire shoe when it comes to this trend. From the straps to the heels it can all be a different color.  Having such great detail on the heels one of my favorite things a designer does.


This is a perfect example of the designer taking the classic black and white combination to the next level.  I love how created the double straps with white and added the black to the point. I’m craving to wear these with a pencil skirt with a tucked in red blouse.  How cute would that be?


We’re sticking with the simple look for color blocking with these pumps.  These black and grey heels with the open sizes add style to a business look.  I love that the colors are very separate but still fit well together.  A lot of times with color blocking, it’s difficult to pair an outfit with it.  These allow you the ability to wear anything with it. 


Now we’re getting into the fun and sassy side of color blocking.  Metallic is something you’re going to see a lot of and what a fun way to incorporate the trend.  Silver and purple is such a fun combination!!  You have a little black dress in your closet you’re getting bored with?  These are the shoes from that can bring life back into that LBD!


My heart beats a little faster when I see Jimmy Choo’s heels!  These twisty turns of details are amazing with the asymmetrical straps and layered colors are terrific. These are simply perfect for a night out!  You can tone it down with black, tan and silver or add a wow with the purple, yellow and green!


We’re going back to the black and white trend but there is a blue and black option too! These Kate Spade pumps took full advantage of the entire shoe. Look at that detail in the heel, just amazing.  These would be perfect for a business look or a fun night out.

Thanks again to and Nordstrom for letting me go shopping through their spring looks!!  Which one is your favorite?!

Have a happy shoe day!
