Shop Shop Shop: La Catrina de LA Moda Spring Shoe Shopping Guide!

Spring is here and it's time to talk about my favorite subject, yes you guessed it shoes.  I get very excited when spring rolls around because there are so many shoe options and possibilities available out there.  The pleasant spring weather allows for us to pick from a large variety of footwear options starting with sandals and ranging all the way to boots!  I decided to put together a Spring shoe guide highlighting some of my favorite Spring footwear trends that have me saving my pennies.

Espadrilles are a Spring footwear must! However, this year we are seeing lots of espadrille textured details not only on the wedge and sole of the shoe but as an all overall shoe detail.  In addition to the espadrille texture that we always go to for spring there are alternative natural textures and finishes this season.  My favorite natural inspired texture this spring is the basket weave texture shown on the Steve Madden wedges and the Boutique 9 heels above, this option is perfect if you want to skip out on the traditional espadrille and go for something a little different.
Shop the It's A Natural Thing Spring footwear trend:
ALDO Happer Wedge $90
Jeffrey Campbell So Much Platform via LuLu's $132
Steve Madden WestII Wedge 89.95
Boutique 9 Pawla Platform $190
Jeffrey Campbell Alexa FAB Wedge $114.95

It is no secret that this year I am beyond obsessed with the color orange, so it's of no surprise that one of my favorite spring footwear trends consists of sporting this wonderful tangy shade on you feet!  What better way to add a splash of fun color than by wearing an amazing pair of killer shoes featuring a dash of orange.  
Shop the Orange Crush Spring footwear trend:
Topshop Mary Jane Patent Leather Platform $140
Jeffrey Campbell Child 2 Wedge $120
Ego and Greed Bowler Espadrille Wedge $139.95

This spring the nude shoe has made a comeback!  My favorite variations of the nude shoe this season have to be the chunky platforms, the stacked wood platform details, the suede finishes, and the minimal and simple styles.  I have to admit that I have yet to find the perfect pair of nude platforms or wedges, but this year I am going to look harder starting with the options above.  The Mojo Moxy pair has me very excited, the style is perfect to wear with my skinny jeans, and will go perfect with my shorts and dresses in addition check out that amazingly affordable price tag!

Soft and delicate pastel footwear options can be the perfect way to soften up an outfit.  The pastel shoes above would go great with a neutral outfit, with an all white or light colored outfit (a huge spring trend) or even with an all black outfit for a pop of soft color.  However, my favorite way to incorporate these soft pastel footwear options to my daily outfits would be by pairing them with my "go-to" skinny blue jeans, and  with a white over sized tank or button down shirt and tadaa totally ready for spring!
