In the Mood: 5 Shoe Styles for Spring (Splurge vs. Save)

Now that April is coming to an end, it’s definitely time to schedule a pedicure and step into a new pair of shoes this spring. Whether you are looking for something casual, strappy or classic, then look no further cause I’ve got you covered.  I’m not sure about you all, but I personally can’t afford spending almost $1k in a pair of shoes.  If I had that money I’d rather spend it on a new purse or clothes, paying a bill or adding the money to my savings account.  If I can find a similar version of a designer shoe, then I’m definitely going to buy it, especially if it’s a trendy style.  And it’s so easy to do.  Lately I’ve found some really good duplicates at Target and DSW, so there’s never a need to blow your budget.

Well, I’ve put together a list of the top 5 spring shoe styles that you’ll need this spring.  And there’s a little something for everyone one at every price point.

BOW SLIDES OR MULES:
The bow slide is definitely one of my favorite shoe trends of the season right now.  It’s a perfect staple for spring and summer that will transition easily from day to night. I’ve already purchased these slides in pink and stripes and I’m really debating about picking up the black pair. I mean you can’t beat the price tag on these cuties – they’re a real steal at $25.


ESPADRILLE WEDGES:
One style that will never go out of style is a pair of  the tried-and-true espadrille. It’s the perfect option for spring or summer.  There are so many different styles this season like these flats, these slip-ons or these fun wedges that everyone is wearing lately. I’m personally obsessed with these classic espadrille wedges from Steve Madden because you don’t have to worry about a pedicure and you can still get a perfect “springy” look. 

POM-POM SANDALS:
This playful and colorful sandal is back again this season and you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars like this one and this one to try out this whimsical trend. Designer dupes like Sam Edelman, ASOS and Target are popping up everywhere this spring, so you can find a budget friendly version of this sandal that’s perfect for your wallet.  Grab yourself a sweet pair of pom-pom sandals like this one to add a fun twist to your spring wardrobe. 

BLOCK HEEL SANDALS:
The block heeled sandal is another shoe trend that is both comfortable and chic. The sturdy and versatile square-like heel makes a statement all on it’s own and you don’t have to worry about sore feet after wearing them all day.  Trade in your classic stilettos and grab yourself a block heel sandal with a cute ankle strap like these or structured style like these.  Wear them with a pair of jeans for a more casual look or a dress for a night out.

GLADIATORS:
The classic gladiator sandal has been popular for some time now and it’s definitely here to stay. If you don’t have a pair of these strappy detailed sandals or if you’re in need of a new pair, then pick up a pair like this one or this one.  These gladiators give you an instant boho chic vibe without breaking the bank.

What are your thoughts on splurging vs. saving? Would you rather save your money and buy the real thing or save your money and get the look for way less?
