Hello me lovelies. Hope everyone is well and fine. I’ve been enjoying this New York City spring weather as it’s simply wonderful. The spring fashions are blossoming all over the city woo hoo. It certainly is a glamorous sight. Slowly but surely a lot of the mentioned fashions in previous post are streaming out unto the streets as well. This summer is going to be stellar but for now I would like to pay special attention to the item that pulls all the looks together. As I sit here listening to old Madonna tracks and Foster the People I would like to offer insight at the shoes that will own the sidewalk.

I remember when I was a kid I couldn’t wait to get older to wear heels. The higher the better I would say. This was based on rebellion and the fact that I was a shorty. Later I would embrace my shortness and found a deep love and appreciation for flats. This simple chic shoe offers comfort, easy wear and at times a sense of earthiness. Of course flats are available always, however this is time where the styles and looks may even have the sworn stiletto wearer ditch their heels and give these a try. From Espadrilles, Strappy Sandals, The Slipper Loafers Style, Oxfords, Brogues and of course the Ballerina look these styles are endless and available in print, color block, pastels colors, canvas. These are very flavorful indeed.

I’ve loved wedges since the first episode I’d ever watched of Three’s Company when Chrissy would prance around in them in her hot shorts. They are fabulous. I love the look, the wear, the feel. If it were up to me they would never go away, ever. They’ve been around for the last few spring seasons and summer so fingers crossed. This season look for high wedges in Sneakers fashion, Espadrilles, Cork and Wood styles. Remember color, color, color and don’t forget metallics.

We should just call this season shoe trend ode to Chrissy because that is who comes to mind every time I see the latest shoe fashions lol. Chunky Heels in all heights and for those of us that love wearing high heels expect them to be higher than ever. This style will be seen as Platform Sandals, Low Heeled Sandals, Clogs, Chunky Wood Shoes, In Stacked heels. I love the look of Chunky Sandals worn with little ankle socks, I don’t know why I just do. I’m completely thrilled to see these available also in a variety of colors. Now be cautioned ladies when wearing the super high heels, I once wore a pair on a cobbled stone street it was like playing hopscotch. They are very comfortable but if in that setting watch out.
