Favorite Must-Have Shoes for Spring and Summer!

I am not a fashion blogger or a fashionista…I’m really just a mom trying to get it done and maybe looking a little cute while I’m doing it. One of my weaknesses is shoes, and while I love a good fancy heel I am all about comfort for a great price. Most of the time I don’t follow fashion rules or trends. I opt for comfort over style and what feels good for me. But there’s something about a Spring shoe that makes me happy! It eases you right into the summer life of comfortable flip flops. The humidity here makes me just want to live in them! Today I’m sharing with you my favorite Spring shoes, and how I get them all for a steal! Bargain hunting is my middle name.

Spring/summer Boots and Shoes

A good pair of tan booties can be the perfect Spring Shoe! They can get you through those cooler spring days where you are wearing jeans on date nights. High on my list are getting some with a peep toe! These Lauren Conrads are so cute, or these Universal Threads from Target. I feel like those are an even more perfect transition into spring. These I snagged on sale at Kohl’s. While some of the stuff at Kohl’s can be pricey, like the boots I got at regular price, what I love about them is that you can wait for a good deal and find coupons. These particular booties are some of the most comfortable booties I’ve ever had, and when I got them on sale they were only $34!! They have laser cutouts throughout and I love they are super easy to slip on. I raved about these on my Instagram when I was in Houston and walked about 10 miles during a whole day, from one side of the city to the other. As a girl with foot problems from my dancing days, I can absolutely tell you that these shoes should be on your list!

Other favorites are pastel colored tennis shoes! I love a light colored shoe for spring because they can easily be dressed up or down. I wear them with my jeans {white or regular jean} or a cute dress! Some of my favorites are my pink Addidas {which I also got on killer sale at DSW!!}. If you are a CostCo customer you can score these adorable lavender Puma tennis shoes right now. Another great staple for almost any outfit is my grey Toms! These you can also score on Zulily from time to time…sign up for Zulily regardless my friends! If you’re military, head over to the Exchange to snag your pair of Toms.

spring/summer sandals

Now, normally in the spring {and summer} you will find me in sandals of some kind. I was born and raised in California and any living on the East Coast has really cramped my flip flop wearing style. I’m not sure one can ever have too many sandals! I’m sharing some of my favorite ones below.

 

Rainbow Sandals – If you were born, raised or even lived for a short time in California {or even the West Coast in general} you might have encountered these flip flops. They are California to me and remind me so much of home. I love these flip flops because they are made so well, last for forever (these ones are on their second season) and have fantastic arch support for my ridiculous feet.

Rose Gold Pool Slides – You guys these are the cutest and perfect for the pool! Even if you aren’t into these (check out the different colors), check out Little Bird Boutique because they are fantastic! I love their shop and their customer service is amazing!!!

Black Slides – A good pair of black slides is a staple and can be worn into fall even. Dress them up, or wear them in shorts! These I scored at Goodwill if you can believe. Three whole dollars y’all!! I have a couple good options for you. These from Urban Posh are a great dupe for some of the more expensive ones on the market – plus use code Jena15 for 15% off!! I also love these cute Target Shore & Shade scalloped slides too.

Silver Birkenstock Style – These were a purchase last year and I’ve worn the heck out of them! They are a little scrappy but I’ll keep wearing them until they fall apart. They are so cute, and yet another sandal you can dress up or down!! Having a few multi-purpose shoes of any kind is really the key to getting the most out of your wardrobe. These I got on Zulily and I’m telling you, sign up for Zulily if you haven’t. You can score some of the best deals. You can also pay the big bucks you can splurge on the real deal, but get them for a little cheaper on Amazon!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wedge sandal – A wedge sandal is a great spring/summer shoe and a staple of my wardrobe because AGAIN its multipurpose! I was serious when I said I love a good multipurpose shoe. These Lucky Brand wedges are seriously the most comfortable wedge, with so much support and a cute little zipper detail up the back. I got mine at Nordstrom Rack and I found these a close example (also at Nordstrom’s Rack).
