The Shoe Guide: Nude Shoes


Yesterday I posted about Net-A-Porter Magazine's amazing new shoe issue and today is the first of four spring trend spotlights (under $350).

The Nude Shoe

Nude shoes are not just a spring trend but really a wardrobe staple. Remember I did a post about nude shoes last summer? They lengthen the leg and really show off a nice tan (maybe one day when the sun comes out). 

Here are a few of my spring favorites under $350:

Aldo at ShopStyle
'Kinnison' for $75 @ Aldo

I'm a huge fan of gold shoe details... it's just so fancy! These are the perfect spring and summer sandal that you can wear with everything.

Giuseppe Zanotti at ShopStyle
Giuseppe Zanotti Platforms on sale for $289 from $585 @ Piperlime 

Hello good deal! Giuseppe is one of my favorite designers. The exposed platform is amazing and I love the delicate ankle strap!

Aldo at ShopStyle
'Moos' for $75 @ Aldo

One of my good friends has these and boy are they hott. Sky high heel and patent leather = your girl's night out shoe!

Corso Como at ShopStyle
Corso Como 'Ruffle Flat' for $139 @ Bloomingdales

Corso Como is known for making super comfy shoes. These sandals are just what a trendy on-the-go women needs.. comfort and style all in one!

Check back Monday for another spring trend spotlight!

The Shoe Guide: NET-A-PORTER

Net-A-Porter Magazine just released a fabulous issue about shoes: It's Shoe Time. In the magazine they pin point Spring's biggest shoe trends, interview shoe designer Giuseppi Zanotti, and talk about the new collection by Isabel Marant. If you are a shoe lover, it is a must read! I've pulled a few of my favorite spring trends from the magazine (keep reading):  







Throughout the next couple of days I'm going to spotlight each trend and post related shoes under $350! Don't worry... if your wallet CAN handle the $560+ price tags on spring's trendiest shoes, you can shop the magazine here.  Make sure to check back later for your $350 and under options too!

Spring Statement Studs



Studded shoes are still here and going strong!  Lots of new spring styles just came out and some of them are to die for:

Topshop at ShopStyle
Mayer 2 Stud T- Bar for $55 @ Topshop

Simple spring flat... I like it. The color is a great neutral that will go with anything + I've always been a big fan of the T-strap!

Louise Goldin at ShopStyle
Studded Court by Louise Golden for $310 @ Topshop

Break out your inner Rihanna and strut your stuff in these hott pumps! A spin off of the Louboutin Studded Pigalle, these are a definite show stopper. Love them!

Jessica Simpson at ShopStyle
Jessica Simpson 'Dianara' for $75 @ Zappos
(Available colors: Midnight, Red, Black, Dust)

I heart the zipper detail and criss-cross straps. These could be the perfect spring sandal!

Valentine's Day Shoe Presents





I hope everyone had a spectacular Valentine's Day. The boy and I had a fantastic day of hiking, cooking, and relaxing + some very fun presents! Check out both of our shoe presents:

For Him:
Jack Purcell 'Race Around Hi' Sneaker

Love these sneakers! The suede detail and contrast white stitching make them look like a million bucks. It's nice to see a funkier, more modern version of the basic Jack Purcell!

He finally has his own pair of red sole shoes and he loves them! For $80, these shoes are hot:
Converse at ShopStyle
Jack Purcell 'Race Around Hi' Sneaker for $80 @ Nordstrom

For Me:
If you follow me on twitter then you know that I was hoping for a pair of shoes instead of the usual Valentine's Day jewelry. Call me crazy but I just know what I want! Leave it to the BF to find a way to get me a shoe and jewelry all in one:


Isn't it lovely?
I think the Tiffany Blue sole definitely makes the charm:


I guess you could say we really like shoes!
