But What About the Shoes…

Temps finally rose for us in the New England area the past few days, and don’t get me wrong – I love a good 40-degree day when you can go out in a sweater and a vest instead of every layer you own PLUS a down winter coat just to stay warm. But – you better still be wearing your boots or galoshes because the 3 feet of snow outside is melllllting. Like everyone else, I am jumping on the “I can’t wait for spring” bandwagon and pulling together a bunch of items that I am desperate to wear now but will have to wait until spring, but I am focusing on footwear. Footwear is the final piece to the thank-God-it’s-finally-spring puzzle because you have wait a lonnnng time to wear them without fear of ruining them in snow and endless puddles. Here’s a little round-up of some spring shoes I am coveting right now…

spring-shoes

1. Love these Nautical Ballerina flats from Zara. 2. I am obsessed with the shape of d’orsay flats and can’t wait to get a pair – I love these Ted Baker London Cadeen Flats, the pop of peach is lovely. 3. These Soludos Lace Up Espadrille Flats are adorable and look SO comfy. 4. I had to include a yellow shoe because I always think yellow when I think spring. Aren’t these Tippy Pumps from Anthropologie perfect? 5. A bright-patterned ballet flat is perfect for spring, I love these DV8 by Dolce Vita Tasmin Flats and they’re under $40! 6. And these Lucky Brand Two Piece Flats, these just scream spring! 7. Chuck Taylor Metallic in Rose Gold – the perfect feminine sneaker for spring. 8. I love these pink J.Crew Collection Blakely summer stripe pumps, just the perfect bright color.

What shoes are you looking forward to wearing when it gets warmer AND drier?

What to Wear – Summer Denim

I’ve already declared that in place of regular denim I like to wear white jeans in the summer. But then I was perusing the internet and found these amazing, lightweight jeans and I think I spoke too soon! I love the pattern of these pants that from afar look like they might be a blue tribal pattern…but close up you see that they are in fact floral. There is also piping down each leg to give them a tuxedo pant effect. So original! I had to think of an outfit idea and share them with you, you may be surprised, but I went mostly neutral to let the pants really shine. Let me know what you think and if you’d wear these pants in place of your heavier denim for summer.

What-to-Wear-Summer-Denim

1. Silk Cargo Tank from Madewell, worn loosely tucked in; 2. This navy Fan Necklace from J. Crew Factory makes the look; 3. Simple cardigan from J.Crew Factory, the pop of bright green looks great with the pants.; 4. The outfit would look great with my favorite navy nail essie‘s Bobbing for Baubles; 5. The pants! Looker Skinny Jeans from Mother at Shopbop; 6. My sister just got a new Tory Burch so that inspired me to pair this outfit with one of Tory‘s new Straw Basket Tote Bags for summer. I love the whole line but this one looks great with this outfit; and 7. I’ve been coveting these Studded espadrille slip-ons from Zara. You know how I love espadrilles…

Couple Things

SO glad it’s Friday.  We had a pretty good week around here…

Z got to try out her tricycle with all the warm/sunny weather we had too and I got to wear my favorite espadrilles to the playground – we are so ready for this nice weather…

Poor Maxine got stuck in her own scratching post cave. She’s just too big for it…

 

Zoe-on-the-phone

We got Z some jumbo Crayola Crayons and she immediately hopped on the phone and took notes with her purple crayon.

 

Have a great weekend, here are a couple links for you:

We got Chopsticks this week, not as good as Spoon, but cute!

I do love Gwynnie, but this dress might be a bit much!

I love the quirky Mother’s Day gift ideas at Paper Source

but I think my mom would just like this orange trench coat!

Have you seen the new DVF line at GAPKids?!  It’s so cute – I want to get these espadrilles for my Z.
