Ladies, if you’re a shoe-lover, this post is for you!There are some really great shoe trends that are on just about every blogger’s feed this spring and I’m rounding up my favorite ten pairs today.

Shoes are a really great–and many times really affordable–way to freshen up your wardrobe. Great shoes are so worth investing in because you can wear them all the time with so many different outfits.

  1. Marc Fischer Espadrille Wedges

    If there’s one pair of shoes you’re going to see on every blogger, it’s these. They are a great version of the more expensive Chloe pair that most of us could never afford. They are the ideal shoe for casual spring and summer dresses, skinny jeans, and high-waisted shorts. I just purchased this pair in blush, and expect to wear them all summer long!

  2. Bow Pump

    I’ve seen several pumps and flats with leather bows on the side, which is a really cute detail to play up a classic. In a nude color, these are a cute way to add a little feminine touch to your outfit!

  3. Steve Madden Low Block Heel Sandal

    These shoes are easily one of my most-worn shoes for work. They go really well with dresses and skinny ankle trousers, and the height of the heel is quite conservative. I own them in the neutral color, and got a ton of wear out of them last year.

  4. J.Crew Pump in Blue

    The color of these powder blue suede pumps is so pretty for springtime. Last year, I purchased a mint-green ankle strap pump that I wore to brighten up otherwise simple outfits. A shoe in a soft color is a nice (and super easy!) way to spring-ify your look.

  5. J.Crew Two-Tone Mule

    Mules are making a big statement this spring–yet another trend you’re going to see on everyone. I like this pair because of their feminine feel. I have them on my wish list, but I’m not sure if I’m 100% sold on short legs in mules. I think it’s a fine line, so if I went there, I’d opt for this color that’s similar to my natural skin tone.

  6. Pom Pom Sandal

    We’re seeing pom-poms on just about everything this year–bags, shoes, dresses, tops, shorts. These shoes are really just fun. If nothing else, they’ll make you happy every time you look at your toes!

  7. Halogen Tassel-Tie Block Heel Pump (comes in blush!)

    I just added these shoes to my repetoire and I just love the look of them. For me, being so short, I’m usually hesitant about wearing black shoes with an ankle strap. Usually anything that cuts my leg at the ankle only emphasizes my short legs. These, on the contrary, have such a thin bow at the ankle, that they don’t have the effect that a thicker strap would. I love that I can now wear a black ankle-strap pump for work!

  8. Adidas Stripe Sneaker

    Does anyone else remember having these in middle school? I can absolutely recall all of my friends and I having these in different colors–boys and girls alike. It’s so funny to me to see them coming back around. I think I’m drawn to these for nostalgic reasons, but I think they’ll look great with sporty t-shirt dresses, denim shorts, and casual weekend wear in general.

  9. Steve Madden Block Heel ‘Carrson’ Sandal

    Another shoe that you will see on everyone this season. The block heel made a huge comeback last spring, and it’s in full force again this year. I have this exact shoe in the nude–easily one of my favorite shoes to dress up in for date nights or special occasions. They look great with everything, and they work wonders for us short sisters!

  10. J.Crew Cap Toe Gemma Flat

    These cap-toe flats are a great, and much less expensive, version of the iconic Chanel flats. I think the pointed toe is a nice way of making them more current. I tend to prefer a pointed-toe to a rounded-toe flat for the sake of elongating the leg.
