FASHION: THE SPRING SHOE



Hello guys! sorry for the radio silence I had a hectic travel schedule las week that left me exhausted. I haven't traveled this way in a while and you could tell. I was all over the place haha. But anyhow, now it is over and I had all weekend to rest and recover and now here I am! My intention was to work on the post and publish it during one of the many flights I took, but it ended up not happening because I was falling asleep as soon as I got on the plane (it is one of my superpowers if I dare to brag).

Anyways, I decided to do my first fashion post in relation to something that is one of my favorite things to buy: Shoes. I am way more audacious with my footwear than my actual clothes, as I always like to give a little edge to my outfits but not too much. And I feel like having a statement shoe is like a very subtle way to say, I like fashion, but I don't need to impress you, but I still want you to know I like fashion. 

And now that spring is coming, I get to wear the perfect looking things called mules and slides. I can't tell you how perfect I think these shoes are, I feel like if I was born a shoe, I would be a mule. A flat mule. I don't know if that says something about my personality or not, but that is how much I love mules. 

Anyways, so, as I was getting excited for spring and getting to wear them again, I decided to make a little round up of some of my favorite spring mules and slides. I think the most expensive ones I found were around $70. I like to keep it real with the prices, as sometimes I see people post about shoes that are so affordable and really they are like 130 bucks, I'm sorry but I feel like most of the times I don't have that kind of money for a single pair of shoes, and I know for a fact that there is at least a group of girls that feels the same way (aka my friends). So, if you like to spend a little bit more money this might not be the blog post for you, but at least you can use this post for a cool inspiration pictures. 

I am not a fashion expert at all, and I consider myself as somebody that goes less with the trends but more with what I wear what makes me feel like myself and makes me feel comfortable. If I describe my style I would say I am minimalistic,  a little bit edgy, a mix of girly and tomboy, not interested in overly sexy clothes (I'd rather wear something that shows leg, back or shoulders rather than cleavage. I think I'm lucky since I don't have much in that area so it is not a concern of mine). 

Below I collected a few inspiration pictures of what I would like to wear this spring. As you can see they are very basic clothes, and the shoes complete the look perfectly. I apologize I didn't tag who's who on the pictures but I have all of them on my Pinterest board for Spring and Summer Fashion if you want to check it out and follow :)  

Now, the good stuff! Here I compiled a few of my favorite ones,  and as much as I would like to buy them all, I also like to think that about not succumbing into a consumerism free fall, so I like to really think of what shoes I would use a lot and not keep them in my closet for weeks at a time before wearing them again. 

Last summer I bought some pink slides that I fell in love with at Steve Madden, only because they were on sale, and I ended up using them so often that I think I need another pair basically because that is all I wear in the spring and summer months. So, if you would like to tone it down with the spending and the having-no-space-in-your-closet problems, I would only pick one or maybe two pairs that you would really use a lot.
