Shoe Shopping


Hope you all had a great weekend! As a girl with generations of Wisconsin roots, I am pretty darn pleased with that Superbowl! :)

It’s at the point in winter when I start to get really tired of my boots. I love dusting them off in the fall, but by February, I miss all my sandals, flats, and open-toed shoes in general. To get through the next month and a half of winter Pittsburgh probably has, I did some shoe shopping on Saturday for shoes that will work both right now and in warmer weather.

Here are some of the styles I tried on, as well as some shoes that I just love for this spring!

Charlotte Russe

{Faux Suede Ruffle Peeptoe Bootie in Nude, Distressed Wingtip Flat in Pewter, Bow-Side Bootie in Grape}

J. Crew

{Quorra Peeptoe Bootie in Soft Amber, Pom-Pom Ballet Flats in Chalk, Langford Leather High-Heel Oxfords in Brownstone}

Forever 21

{Striped Peeptoe Heels, Open Floral Oxfords, Suedette Stilettos with Rosette in Gray}

I especially love the J. Crew Quorra booties and Forever 21 Open Floral Oxfords for spring! For right now though, I love the J. Crew high-heel oxfords (I bought a similar pair this weekend!), and I think the Forever 21 Suedette Stilettoes would make gorgeous bridesmaid shoes.

What kinds of shoes are you wearing in this end-of-winter season? Got a favorite from this list? Happy Monday!

    I bought a similar pair as that top right pink boot, brown leather with a little thicker heel for $30! Love it when the stores get sick of their boots too and mark them 70% off :)

    im a fan of the flower oxfords!

    I’m SO ready for spring. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pair of boots, but I’m ready for warm weather wear! Of course I love the J. Crew peep toe bootie. Unfortunately my bank account won’t allow it for now… But Forever 21 has really stepped it up in the shoe department! Love all those choices. xo
