Shoe Obsessed! What to Wear this Spring

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with shoes. As a former wardrobe stylist, I’ve accumulated a massive amount of footwear over the years. Even after giving away nearly 200 pairs of shoes to various charities, I’m down to somewhere around 300, give or take. Friends often joke that I could probably wear a different pair of shoes for every day of the year.

You may be wondering where I keep so many shoes? Funny you should ask! Recently when I downsized to a home with less closet space, I was at a loss for where to put them all. Then it struck me: why does a single woman need storage for pots and pans? Eureka! I had found the solution. Into the kitchen cabinets went several pairs of shoes and some handbags. Hey, sometimes you gotta make do with what you have.

Below I’ve included links to spring shoe styles from some of my favorite stores, but I’m not opposed to thrifting to find shoes, either! Great spots for serendipitous finds are Poshmark, Clothes Mentor, and Goodwill. And if you get lucky and find a pair of vintage kicks, it always helps to have a great shoe repair guy!

The Best Spring Shoe Styles for Women this Year

Need some bling to put that spring in you step? I wore these Fashion Flats from Shein on my recent trip to Antiqua. Very inexpensive, but super comfortable with a cushioned sole.

I love a high heel, though! Don’t you?! A d’Orsa style heel or a simple one strap sandal looks so good on anyone and you can find this style anywhere.
