OK, so espadrilles aren’t a hot trend; they are actually a modern classic, warm weather shoe. I always over-buy espadrilles for spring and summer; because they are comfortable, and made for hot weather. Love them!

Espadrilles are my favorite shoe after my fuzzy slippers. They are soft, made from natural fibers, and keep feet cool when temperatures rise. What’s not to love about espadrilles? Love love love!!

Every spring and summer season, I love to have a variety of espadrilles to get me through the two seasons. I like an easy pair I can slip on and off on causal days. Enter these super cute butterfly mules. They are easy to slip in and out of, and feature pretty butterflies. How fun is that!

In addition to a casual slip on/off pair, I always love having a small wedge. They are great for when I need to look put together, but am not in the mood for a high wedge or heel. They offer lift and structure, while still feeling comfortable and soft. This is the style I reach for the most often during the hot summer months, and on warm spring days. For my small wedges, I picked up this mustard pair, this floral pair, and these taupe ones. OK yes, I over-bought, but I know I will wear them. When it comes to espadrilles, it is good to alternate them and not wear the same pair everyday. They need to air out.

I did not invest in a new pair of high wedges, because my old stand-by’s in black and ivory are still in great shape. I will be wearing this pair in black or ivory when I need to stand tall!

Let’s get real for a moment. In the spring and summer months, when temperatures rise, feet sweat. It’s not a pretty thing, and your shoes can suffer from it. In addition to your shoes suffering, you can pick up some nastiness on your feet. To combat this, and keep your shoes fresh, I highly recommend a shoe spray such as this one. You can spray it inside your espadrilles to keep them fresh, and to protect your feet. This will enable you to enjoy your espadrilles all season long, and also save your favorite pairs for next year, and the year after that.

Spring 2019 shoe trends

Spring 2019 shoe trends are here! Stores are well stocked with the most fabulous shoes for the upcoming warm weather season, and there are so many trends to look for while shopping! This spring 2019 season, you can look forward to more comfortable shoe styles, funky heels, and playful designs. It’s going to be a fun season!

Chunky Heels

The spring 2019 season is all about chunky, funky heels. Often times the heels will be multi-colored or PVC. Look for interesting heels while shoe shopping! Of course, of you aren’t into chunky funky heels, kitten heels are in too; but big and clunky is way more fun!

Espadrilles (Obvi)

Did you know espadrilles are huge for spring? Um-did you know florals are in too? Groundbreaking! Ha! Yes, pull out last year’s espadrilles because they are very, very fabulous for spring 2019.

Snakeskin

You saw it on the streets! One of the biggest trends on the streets of New York Fashion Week was snakeskin. This is a huge fabrication for the spring 2019 season. While most of what you see on the market will be faux snakeskin-usually snakeskin print on leather; it will still have the look. I love the look of snakeskin. The texture looks fresh, making it  a great way to update your wardrobe this spring season. Love!

PVC

Well, PVC is huge. I plan to rock this trend with a handbag, but if you are brave, you can try rocking it in shoes. PVC shoes are very hot this spring, so if you think you can handle the chafing-go for it!

Chunky street sneakers

Chunky street sneakers are so big for spring, I already wrote about them! You can read my post here. This is spring’s most comfortable trend. After you kill your feet in PVC shoes, you can relax in a pair of chunky street sneakers. That works! Look for funky soles, bright colors, and statement making sneakers. Have fun with this one!

Anything Yellow

I know coral is the color of 2019, but yellow is having a moment too. Look for yellow shoes, in any style! This is a fun way to add a little sunshine to your footsies.

Athleisure is growing in popularity, and with it, comes some funky trends! Designers are loving both pastel colors, and neon hues this spring 2019 season. They have incorporated these colors into one of the hottest spring 2019 shoe trends of the season; the chunky sneaker.

Instead of hobbling around on 5″ heels this spring season, you can have happy feet planted safely inside of a funky, chunky pair of sneakers. Sneakers for spring 2019 are being shown with exaggerated soles, wedges, and larger-than-life treads. You won’t slip and fall in these shoes, that’s for sure!

When shopping for a pair of fabulous, and fashionable, chunky sneakers this spring 2019 season, look for neon hues, pastel colors, and notice-me designs. Your sneakers should not be quiet. The more colors on them, the better! This is the season for your funky, casual feet to shine! Enjoy the comfort!

If a mix of neon hues is too bright for you, and mixed pastels aren’t your thing, never fear, color blocked neutrals are here! Designers are also showing chunky street sneakers for spring in mixed neutral hues. You won’t have to sacrifice your understated, personal style on your footwear this season. You can still rock those neutrals while remaining on trend for the season. Love that!
