Belle Buys Her First Pair of Spring Shoes

Jan 28, 2013

Last year, I made a huge mistake.  I waited to shop for spring/summer footwear until I was ready to wear them in April.  Consequently, the shoes that I wanted were mostly sold out. 

I have vowed not to let this happen again.

Anne Klein Traven Sandal ($89)

I spotted these on Piperlime and purchased them immediately.  I love the mix of bronze and tan.  They’ll look great with sundresses and skirts and can even be worn to a casual wedding. 

Other shoes I’m looking at include these gorgeous coral sandals to wear with navy, white and grey.  I also like these flat sandals with gold shield plate.  I’m still searching for a pair of comfortable flesh-toned heels, since I ruined mine over three years of constant wear.  I’d like a 3.5″ to 4″ heel with a small platform, so we’ll see what I find.

What shoes are you dying to buy for the next season?

    I'd love something similar but in with a wedge. usually much more comfortable for me to walk in. Do you like wedges? Or are they too clunky for your tastes?

    I have these nude pumps: https://www.dsw.com/shoe/ellen+tracy+vanna+pump?prodId=205478&activeCats=cat10006,cat20006,dsw12cat1290018

    I've found them to be easy to walk in, comfortable to wear all day, the perfect heel height, and the perfect price. I've had mine 2 or 3 summers and they've held up well aside from normal scuffing that shows up on light shoes.

    The Ann Taylor Perfect Pumps in roud toe nude are AMAZING. Truly the most comfortable and versatile pair of heels I have. Highly recommend. They also wear very well (and you can get scuffs out of them with a dab of nail polish remover on a Q tip!)

    My favorite nude pumps are the Pinkish by Ivanka Trump in light beige patent. I got them on Piperlime and I love them. They are comfortable for around the office, but I drive to work and have a short walk into the office.

  5. Meghan says:

    Indigo by Clarks has the EXACT shoe you're looking for if you don't mind a peeptoe and their shoes are SO comfy.

    My nude pumps are Kate Spade Karolinas. Love them. I'm hoping I can snatch up another pair next time there's a surprise sale.
