Unless you have the pleasure of living in an area with climate that is warm all year around (which I USED to, but no longer), your winter was probably full of dark colors on freezing days. But fret not, my friends, because warmer days are promised to us soon enough! That’s right – Spring is literally just around the corner. Oh yes! That means it’s time for a WARDROBE REVAMP, ladies (and gentlemen, if you are reading this). Brand new styles are coming out for Spring in chic, playful, and stylish ensembles. But what I want to focus on today, is the shoes! Finding the perfect spring sandal is crucial to those vacation #OOTD post on Instagram. Or, to just transition from Winter to Spring effortlessly. So, whether you are doing-it-up for spring break, spring cleaning, or just hoping for spring weather, you’ll need the perfect sandal. I have listed some of my favorite spring sandals under $50 I have been eyeing for the new season.

Start Your Spring Cleaning with Your Shoes
One of my first, and favorite, places to start when initiating my closet clean out is my shoes. I am one of those people who can be fickle with my giveaways, but also very sentimental. I will find reasons to keep the pieces that I don’t really love, and don’t need to keep. We have all been there, right? Those “I will fit back in them, one day” pants. Or the “They will come back in style” jewelry items. My favorite is the “They were a gift, so I will only wear it when that person is around” pieces. It’s so easy to keep things that we really don’t need, or want, in life. What happens when we do-away with the items that just don’t give us the rev they used to?
The best way I give away my items is donating them to my local women’s shelter and non-profit charities. That way I KNOW my gently used items are going to someone who really needs them and will cherish them more than I will.
Shoes are the items I can easily let go in my wardrobe. They are a dime a dozen and you can buy so many stylish ones for next to nothing. If you are new to my blog, you should know that I value getting a bang for my buck, and also look great while doing it. Plus, you really only need to swap out your shoes twice a year to fit the seasons. Trading my boots for mules with pink bows or cute sneakers can really transform an outfit. There are far too many spring sandals options at affordable prices, it’s easy to make the case for buying a couple pairs!
Spring Sandals Style Trends
For Spring this year, mules and sandals have returned, and for good reason. These styles are classic, effortless, comfortable, and versatile. For me, I have always preferred an easy slip-on as opposed to a sneaker. A clean, modern mule is guaranteed to go with anything from spring dresses, to skinny jeans, to shorts. Let us not forget the style some love to hate – wedges. As much as I will walk away from a pair of wedges (mainly because of my height), I do like what this Spring style is cooking up.
Muted colors are going to be big for Spring. In addition to your typical black and cognac color scheme, white is actually going to be the pantone for spring sandals. White slides and mules with accents and fun details are going to be the things to look out for. Details like studs or scalloped edges, straps, and textures will be huge.
Otherwise, feel absolutely free to stick with what you know best in taupe, nudes, and blushes. These colors go with everything!
Where to shop for this year’s spring sandals?
You will never go wrong with your staple retailers like Target, DSW, and Nordstrom – whenever they have a sale. Some of my favorite brands to shop are Steve Madden, Madewell, Sole Society, and Caslon. Whether you are loyal to a store, or a brand, you are sure to find something you love that is wallet friendly. And if you are new here, you will quickly learn that I don’t spend much to look fashionable. And I will never ask YOU to!
