Dreaming of Stepping into Spring
I recently treated myself to some Spring shoes, hoping to will the good weather to come maybe a little faster?! Someone turned me onto Loeffler Randall, a beautiful boutique brand from husband/wife duo Jessie Randall & Brian Murphy. I must have been living under a rock to miss them! Their gorgeous original designs are sold in 250+ retailers worldwide and they won a CFDA award. They have such flair! I got the Vera Ruffle Slide Sandal in black — they are so comfortable and polished, I’m tempted to get another pair in melon.

I’m also oggling the Lulu mule, which could spice up basic capri jeans or look great with dressier linen pants…(BTW, you might enjoy LoefflerRandall’s blog — they have their finger on the pulse of some very cool tastemakers and resources!)
For a more basic but spring-like shoe, I ordered the Cece ballet flat from J. Crew — which apparently has been the subject of some controversy, as J. Crew had moved factories last year and disappointed legions of loyal Cece-fans. NOW the shoe is back to being made in Italy and has a great price point ($118) for a stylish runaround shoe.
Also packing some good style at a good price point: J. Crew’s Double-strap mules in snakeskin leather. These haven’t arrived yet so I hope they are comfortable, but I like the look and think they too could be versatile...
Here’s hoping Spring gets here a little faster this year & that we all have fun things to unpack for the new season (Last year I went on a girls weekend in Cabo & as I was packing the night before the trip - classic procrastination - I realized I had purged a bunch of clothes & shoes at the end of the previous Spring, but kind of forgot to replace them with upgraded pieces. Oh well, c’est la vie!)
