My annual spring shoe review is LIVE! This is my THIRD one! I love doing these as a way to recap what the best of spring shoes & sandals are – and I always include info on sizing and how I’ve styled them as well! I tried to keep most of them under $100 – I think one pair is over $100!

ALSO! THere’s a giveaway at the end of this post!! It’s one you will want to enter! [3 $100 Nordstrom Giftcards!]




These come in tan [seen above], leopard, & black! They are $88.95 and they are SUPER comfortable / not hard to walk in! I wear them so much because they feel good but also just go with a lot! They instantly elongate your legs & are so, SO flattering.

They do run TTS – I went with my regular size.

See recent posts where I have styled them HERE.


The second wedge you’ve seen me wear a TON and they are the STEVE MADDEN ROBERTA CAMEL WEDGE.

These come in black, camel [seen above], & navy. They run TTS and are $99.95. Again, these are SO SO comfortable and feel so good. I wear them with basically any and everything. I really like the espadrille wedge – its so summery!

See recent posts where I have styled them HERE.


The third wedge is the STEVE MADDEN SANDRA WEDGE.

These were a recent purchase – and I’ve worn them like CRAZY. The platform on them makes them a bit taller than other wedges but they are still very comfortable & I have been wearing them several times a week! They run TTS and come in 2 other colors.

See recent posts where I have styled them HERE.

SHOE #4 & #5

The wedge on the right is a  nude wedge by Treasure & Bond. & it comes in several colors. I purchased these in the winter of 2018 before it was ever warm and I kid you not –  I have never gotten more compliments or had so many questions about a pair of wedges! These were mentioned in last years Spring Shoe Review but they are back in stock so I had to post! They run TTS & are super comfy – wore them on our long days at Disney World last spring break. See them styled HERE. [See initial spring 2018 Review post HERE.]

The wedge on the left is the ADALYN WEDGE  BY MARC FISHER and it was in the last 2 years Spring Shoe Reviews! They are very comfortable and practical and it seems like they never get old! I have them in 3-4 colors. They run TTS. [See initial spring review of them HERE – this post has different colors & styles & has more info.]




This pair is less of a wedge and just more of a chunky platform sandal but don’t let it scare you! They are actually VERY comfortable and remind me a lot of a pair of Christian Louboutins I wore last year. The difference is – these are a fraction of the price! These are $88.95 and come in 4 colors.  I opted for this ‘Natural’ color because it has a ‘straw’ look which just screams summer! They are the perfect heel for sundresses! I wore them in Arizona last week with THIS dress and it was the perfect outfit [I don’t have photos 🙁 ].

See closer up photo of these below.



I saw these a few times online and more or less blew them off thinking I’d not wear them much because of the pearl detailing. AND  then I saw this ad on social media for a pair of black sandals with pearls [not the exact pair] on a pair of really tan feet & I was hooked immediately. Something about seeing the photo kind of made me excited for summer even if I don’t wear a lot of black sandals or pearl detailing. Anyway, I ordered this pair – 2x actually! By accident tho – because I saw them on Nordstrom’s site. I’d say they run TTS – but you do have to take actually insert your foot – the 3 straps are not super stiff so the top one you will have to kind of pull up over your arch, ya know?! I probably could have sized up but the 8 fit perfectly.

These do come in 3 colors and are $69.95. Since they are new-ish to me I don’t have any photos wearing them but I am sure I will soon. They go with any black outfits & are simply striking.



The next shoe is the STEVE MADDEN UNFAZED.

Holy COW! I got these back in December and my mom and I both wore them in a couple of posts traveling this winter and you all bought them out like CRAZY! BUT they were restocked! They come in black & white also. They are ‘TTS’ but I do wish I would’ve sized up half a size as it may have felt more comfy wearing them through airports and walking long distances. Mine are in the shade ‘NUDE’ and they go with SO much. They are easy to dress up or down. These are a dupe of the designer dupe by Stella McCartney HERE.

See recent posts where I have styled a similar pair HERE or my mom wearing them HERE – just scroll down a bit to our airport photo.


Next up are my APL TECHLOOM BLISS.

These are my most worn shoe this pregnancy – no joke! The brand actually send me an orange-is pair over the weekend because I had been wearing my pink SO often. I love that I can easily slide them on – because it’s SO hard for me to bend over and tie shoes with this huge baby bump! These shoes are like wearing socks! They are INSANE!! I am talking – I don’t know how I will ever go back to tennis shoes that tie or any brand but APL. They feel amazing. I also love that they have every color in the rainbow!

They run TTS and are WORTH the splurge! John just ordered his first pair in grey yesterday over seeing my excitement! I wear them like 5 days a week and we get stopped everywhere by people asking what brand they are and where to buy them!

SHOES #10 & #11

The next are LEOPARD PRINT! ???

On the LEFT are the STEVE MADDEN EMMI PLATFORM SNEAKER. These are SO cute and go w/a TON – you’d be surprised!! I do highly recommend going up ONE FULL SIZE. I wear an 8 and got an 8.5 and I wish I had purchased the 9. They will rub blisters if you buy them too small! They come in CAMO, too – and black, grey, & white. They are $50.  SEE THEM STYLED RECENTLY HERE.

On the RIGHT are SAM EDELMAN LEOPARD ESPADRILLES. These are TO DIE FOR! I wore them to Disney Land when we were in Cali in February and any time I wear these I get TONS of compliments. These are SO comfortable and feel so good. I did go up half a size! The inside is cushioned and really does feel so amazing. The quality is INSANE – they truly look like a pair of designer espadrilles – I would have expected them to be over $200 honestly. SEE THEM STYLED HERE – just scroll down to the 4th pic!

SHOES #12 & #13

Both of these were purchased last spring but they do have similar styles available so I had to share! I wear both SO much and I get tons of compliments on both styles. They are fantastic for moms or busy women who are always on the go and need to quickly just slide into a pair of shoes!

So there are a few styles that are similar like THIS leopard slide [also comes in snake print!] & THIS leopard slide, too.

I’ll make a little widget below that gives you more option:
