i'll have what she's having {6 spring shoe trends}

As I mentioned here in my last post, flats and lower heels are making a comeback in my daily uniform, where I find myself grabbing them more often than not over my heels. The ironic thing about that? I usually find myself a bit stumped actually on how to style them. I know, I know. But when your automatic knee-jerk reaction to most outfits is to "throw on heels" (which don't get me wrong, is still my mantra), flats can feel like a stranger to the rest of your wardrobe rotation. 

So naturally, when DSW asked me to put together a few style boards around some of the latest shoe trends (a lot of which are flats and low heels), I jumped at the chance, mainly to familiarize myself with how I could pull off each look with similar items I likely already have in my closet. Here are 6 spring shoe trend looks I've put together (some flats, some lower heels) -- essentially a cheat sheet for you and me so to speak. And the cherry on top? I think this may have just nudged me to get a pair of Birkenstocks. Or two. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little excited to style those bad boys now.

Spring Shoe Trend: Birkenstocks

Spring Shoe Trend: Fashion Sneaker

Spring Shoe Trends: Embellished Sandal

Spring Shoe Trend: Wedges

Spring Shoe Trend: City Heel

Spring Trends: White Heels
