Shoe Trends for Spring 2018

Hey Aspirers! If you follow me on all my social media the one thing you should know about me by now is my love shoes because I post a lot on my Instagram story (@_cocorenee) and Snapchat (@bajancoco). Recently I came across Purcado a shoe search engine where you can search, compare, and SAVE! Let me tell you I love balling on a budget. Why pay more when you don’t need to!

With all the new fashion trends you’ll need to know what shoes to wear and where to buy them. You can’t have an amazing outfit without rocking something amazing on your feet too! As you will see these shoe trends have been around for awhile but recently they’ll caught the eye of a much larger demographic. Everyone wants to add these to their wardrobe. Here are some of the shoes trends you’ll see for the Spring and where you find them without breaking the bank.

1. Dad Shoes isn’t just for your dad and F8FB4D5D-B8C7-4B67-94C1-F18F3C5F95FEgrandad anymore. So no more “what are those” jokes to your dad when you two are wearing the same shoes now. These go to shoes for dads made it into the closet for almost everyone this spring. One brand that have become really popular again are New Balances and they aren’t being worn to just go running anymore they are now considered fashionable. Wearing theses are a great way to dress down a outfit or you can them to “look” like you’re athletic.

Western boots have been popping up in high fashion magazines, runways, and now in a lot of our fast fashion retailers. You’re not just seeing these shoes worn with daisy dukes and bell bottoms anymore. Designers have been using the western boot style for inspiration to make the western boot look not so western; so when you wear them you won’t feel like you’re about to step into the Wild West when your walking down the street.

C9CB8388-719D-4E5F-B7A0-E85519EBCC7C3. Block Heels are EVERYWHERE! Take your basic sandal and elevate it with a
little square heel. The heel you can stand in for hours. This style isn’t only cute but it benefits those that need a little arch support. It’s great for those that can’t wear the higher heels but still want a little lift. Wear block heels with your dresses, skirts, shorts, and jeans. Switch that flat with this super trendy shoe.

#OOTD & DIY A Scarf Into A Shirt

img_7069

Just the other day I went a little over board when I went shoe shopping and bought three pairs of shoes. I have a serious shoe problem! Today I put together an outfit that you can create at home. I hate buying new shoes and not having anything to wear with them and I didn’t want to go out and buy more clothes so I decided to use what I already own which is a scarf. Yes I said it a scarf! I made a little clip for you showing you how I created this shirt in minutes.

(Tip: to make sure the shirt stays in place put double sided tape on the areas you don’t want to show. Around the neck clip in safety pins.)

If you want to recreate this same look here are the places you buy the rest of my outfit.

Why not pay less and get more! 

Hi Aspirers a sad thing happen to me recently and I have to share this with you all. My favorite black heels started falling apart! I had that one pair for years. Being a shoeaholic I had to get a new pair ASAP! Every girl needs that one pair you can wear with anything and everything. Since I shop on a budget I was on the hunt for a new pair for a great price. I love fashion but I’m not into the labels. If it’s cute, it’s cute no matter who designed it. 


I found these lovelies at Payless! Originally the shoes were $39.99 but Payless had sale. Went from $39.99 to $29.99 then I had a $10 coupon that was sent to me by my mom which changed the price to $19.99 then I had a $3.00 coupon so after tax I only spent $18.00. Yeah I said it $18.00! Not bad at all. Next time you need a new pair check out Payless or any of your local stores.

#favFridays: Heels

  

  

Would you agree with this statement? “Shoes are a girl’s best friend.” Well it is for me. Growing up I was such a tomboy I would hate it when my sister would put makeup on me and my mom would make me wear dresses. Since then I’ve clearly changed and all I want are cute girly shoes, heels to be exact. 

Below I picked my Top 4 favorite heels I own. 

Every girl needs a basic black pump. It goes with mostly everything and a 3 1/2 inch heel is also great to wear to interviews. You can find a shoe like this almost anywhere but I purchased mine from Shoe Show for under $20.

This next black shoe is my go to “going out” shoe.  When I know I’ll be on my feet for hours I usually wear these. The heel is 4 inches and because the heel is a little thicker I can wear them longer. I purchased this shoe at Rack Room shoes I think. The brand is Madden Girl and they were under $50. 

These tan/skin tone shoes have become my favorite spring heel.  This shoe goes great with neutral colors and a lot of prints you are currently seeing now. I recently wore these in one of my #ootd post with the high and low skirt I made from the thrift store. This heel is 4 1/2 inches. I purchased this shoe from my favorite site AMI Clubwear. I love this site for their sales. I paid $10 for this pair.

My last favorite shoe is my chucky black and taupe heel.   Some may not like this shoe but I fell in love with this 5 1/2 inch heel. I think this shoe is so sexy. The sole of the shoe is so soft. I’m not going to lie at first it was hard for me to find clothes that worked well with this edgy shoe but I found items and out the door I go with these on. The brand is Qupid. I also purchased these from AMI Clubwear and for $10 too! I just love a good deal.

So those are my top 4 favorites for #favFriday this week. I hope you like them. Check back next Friday to see what other favorites I will share. 

Also I like to know what are your favorite heels and where did you purchase them? Comment below.
