This Spring has given us a ton of fun trends. By now everyone probably knows that Tangerine Tango is the color of the year and the fun bright has led the way for bright colors this spring. We have print mixing, color blocking,printed pants and the list goes on! With all of this a girl wonders what shoes do I wear?! This is a question I am glad to answer. I will show you a few of my favorite spring styles and tell you what to pair them with!

 

  • Wedges of course are at the top of the list. A nude wedge sandal is great to go with all of the bright and patterned pants.This season wedges have also been seen in fun brights and patterns mimicking the pants trend.

  • Spiked if you have an edgy side a spiked or studded shoe could add some sass to your wardrobe! Do not go overboard with the look pair it with basic pieces so that you don’t look like you are trying to hard. A basic tee and jeans in pastel colors takes some edge off your look and goes great with a spiked shoe!

  • Rain Boots are trending in a big way! There are more styles than ever to fit multiple fashion styles. Two of my fave brands are Hunter and Dav, however Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs make gorgeous rain boots as well. If you are wearing a busy pattern or bright colored rain boot keep the rest of the look classic and simple. A trench coat and a a-line dress would look great. You can also make your look casual with skinny dark wash jeans and a billowy top.

  • Ballet Flats are a great classic. This season they are available in bolder styles,colors and prints! As always you can pair them with jeans, skirts, cropped pants, shorts etc. However; I do not consider a flat a dress shoe. You should wear a heel at a formal event.

  • Platform Pumps are still a wardrobe staple and the platform gives you great support and longer comfort than a classic pump.

Spring Prep. Now that it is Spring invest in at least one professional pedicure a month and keep it up in between visits or buy the items to do it yourself. I have instructions on DIY pedicures in a previous blog titled: Summer Beauty Prep. However; keeping feet nice is a must and  there is not an option of skimping out on it. The first step in fashion is basic hygiene.

Well that is a long list of shoes but what girl can complain about shoes! Do not be overwhelmed and don’t try to get all the styles;unless you want too of course. Slowly build your shoe closet with the staples and then add the fun ones! Hope this guide helps you!

Hey Dolls! My name is Latrenda and I love all things fashion! I love incorporating new trends with the classics and making them my own. I also love cooking, redoing antique furniture, most specifically vanities and much more! I would love it if you followed me so that we can have some fun together. Below you can read about how I came up with the name Ruby Madison! What does the name Ruby Madison mean? Ruby comes from Proverbs 31 where the Bible is describing a woman of Noble Character: 10A capable, intelligent, and [b]virtuous woman--who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls. Proverbs 31:10 The Amplified Bible Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile. Proverbs 31 The Message Bible Madison comes from Madison Avenue in Manhattan, New York. Madison Avenue is known as the “fashionable road” where the most well known fashion designers, hair salons etc. are located. Therefore, we come to the name Ruby Madison which stands for a fashionable woman of noble character and strength that looks good while navigating in her everyday life.© Whether she stays at home with her children or works outside the home or both; a Ruby Madison Woman can handle it all and does it all with style.
