Favorite Spring Finds: Shoes and Sandals

Amy and I have both been on spring break this week, which is why we’ve been keeping a low online profile. We’ve both been able to enjoy some relaxing family time but will be back to our regular routine next week.We usually post our Friday favorites on, well, Friday, but since tomorrow is Good Friday it makes more sense to share today and take tomorrow off in acknowledgement of Holy Week.

Today I’m sharing a roundup of our favorite spring shoes. Several of them are in my closet and a few others are in my shopping cart. I don’t know about you, but the weather is downright summery where I am, so it’s time to get those toes ready to be on display!

Our favorite spring shoes

First up are these low-heeled cork sandals. I have a pair of these in leopard and they’re super-comfortable; the heel is the perfect height for me and it’s low enough that you can wear it with jeans, capris, and even shorts (and obviously dresses and skirt!). I have a cork tote bag that I carry in the summer and it’s the perfect neutral.

They’re also available in white, leopard, tan, black, and gold.

Next up are Tory Burch’s Miller sandals. Amy and I both own these in several colors and I’m on my second pair of the Vintage Vachetta tan ones (shown below). The first pair lasted for about three years and I wore them at least once a day during sandal weather, so I more than got my money’s worth out of them. I passed my first pair down to my daughter and she’s still wearing them. The footbed shows some serious wear now that we’re on year four, but when she’s wearing them they still look perfect.
