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.

These rarely, if ever, go on sale, but when you can get a percentage off of your total purchase we share it on Facebook, so be sure you’re following us there!

Next up are these calf hair peep-toe flats. I haven’t tried them on yet but I do have a pair of regular ballet flats in this pattern and it’s like leopard in that it goes with absolutely everything. I can picture them with a pair of white capris and a chambray shirt.

Espadrilles are always the perfect spring shoe and so comfortable! These mustard yellow slides are under $25 and would pair perfectly with navy and white stripes (or gingham–you know we love our gingham!).

The knotted Sigma Espadrille Flat  is available in yellow and orange for under $25, plus if you buy one pair of shoes right now you get a second one at 50% off. Need an idea for your second pair? I love these quilted sneakers and if they’re 50% off then they’re under $12.50!


Like I said, we love our gingham, so this navy pair of slides is on my summer shoe wish list:

Last, but not least, Rothy’s ballet flats are worth every penny. I have two pairs and I’m loving this orange pair with a heel stripe for my next pair. They’re made from recycled plastic water bottles and they are unbelievably comfortable. You can throw them in the washing machine when they need to be refreshed and then just air dry them. I pack them when we’re traveling because I can walk 10+ miles a day in them with zero discomfort or blisters.

If you have any spring favorites, I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

And since we’ll be taking the weekend off to celebrate Easter with our families, I thought I’d share one of our previous posts, with all of our favorite Easter tablescapes, recipes, place cards, and more.

    Happy Easter to you both! Excited to read recommendation about Rothy’s! Have been thinking about purchasing a pair (love all the colors and patterns). Now I just have to decide on style and color/pattern. Thanks for your wonderful blog!

  2. The Sigma espadrilles are cute! The gingham slides are too.

  3. If you could only order one color of the tory Burch Miller sandals, what would it be? How do you keep the foot bed clean??

    • It would be the Vintage Vachetta tan, absolutely positively hands down!! The footbed will become discolored eventually since feet sweat during the summer, but you’ll never notice it when you’re wearing them because obviously your foot will cover it up. If that’s a deal breaker for you, I recommend a patent leather finish instead (maybe basic black?).
      They’re worth every penny–I promise!
