Three Things for Spring: Nude Shoes

Image Via
I am so very ready for the spring. March is here, but it feels colder than ever, high winds and a big snowstorm headed our way this week. If only we had sunshine and 70 degree days, drinks on the patio and a stop to stuffy noses.

Dreaming of spring weather is only made worse by looking at spring clothes...still, I couldn't help but put together this little guide to three essential things to add to your wardrobe for spring, whenever it decides to get here.

Nude shoes are essential once the wool tights retreat into storage. Nothing makes legs look longer than flesh-toned footwear. Here are a few favorites to pick from.

Nude Heels 1

Traditional round toe pumps, Nine West ($69), or some slingbacks with a twist, Elliot Luca ($95)

Nude Heels 2

Peep toes high, Ivanka Trump ($120) or peep toes low, Wallis ($52)

Nude Pointed

Sharp and sleek pointed wedges, Lillybee ($84), D'Orsays, Sam Edleman ($110), or classic pumps, Lerre ($79)

Nude Flats 1
Basic ballet flats from prim and proper, L'Autre Chose ($85) or Wallis ($49), to cute and comfy, Camper ($138) or Calvin Klein ($70)

Funky Nude Flats

Funkier flats either soft and sleek, Vince ($295), a flash of flourescent, Matisse ($69) or folded and layered, Kling ($47)

Nude Sandals 2

Sexy sandals, either perforated and pinkish, J Crew ($248) or simple and smooth, Corso Como ($139)

Colorblock Nude Sandals

Color-block cuties in two hues, Dolce Vita ($169) or five, Nine West ($89)
Nude Wedges
Retro wedges, purely old-school, Kork-Ease ($140) or with a hint of metallic, Wallis ($67)

Nude Sandals 3

Finally, sandals for Saturday-Sunday, a hint of neon, Splendid ($66), simple studding, Corso Como ($109) or elaborate wraps, Matt Bernson ($105)
