White Ruffle Dress (Similar, Sold Out) / Schutz Lisana Wrap Sandal (Sold Out, Similar Here) / Cult Gaia Ark Bag – size small

Spring might be my favorite season.  Warm weather is definitely on the way, everything greens up and the flowers start to bloom!  It’s also time to switch from covered up winter gear to fun, feminine styles.  Today, I’m the My Favorite Five series is back with My Favorite Five: Spring Shoes.

I’m loving these great white sandals (above sold out, similar here) I first wore in Cabo in January.  I love the ric-rac like detail of the straps that lace up.  I also wore them in this post of 20 Great Spring DressesThis white dress (similar) above is back in stock in limited sizes so grab it quick!  These sandals are so versatile and fun to wear.  I’ll be wearing them a lot.

White Balanciaga damask shift dress (c/o) / Tory Burch Kira Floral Mini Bag (Sold Out) / Valentino Rockstud City sandals

These Rockstud City Sandals are probably my most worn sandal other than these.  It took me a while to get on the Rockstud train but I really do love them.  They are so comfortable with the block heel.

Misa Los Angeles Dress (Sold Out) / Similar Raffia Clutch / Valentino Espadrilles

If you’re still hesitant to hope on the Rockstud train because they are a bit flashy, these espadrilles are a great option.  They are slightly embellished and get lots of compliments.  They are a great heel height as well.  They sold out last year and they’ve brought them back!

Khaki Slim Fit Shirt (sold out) c/o / Khaki Asymmetrical Ruffle Skirt c/o (Sold Out) / Nude Espadrille Wedges / White Handbag (sold out) / Horn Bangles

These See by Chloe Nude Eyelet Espadrilles are my new go-to for casual days.  You can find them here and here in all sizes.  I wore them almost every day Spring Break.  You can see them here, here, here and here.  So many ways to wear them and so comfortable.  Especially if you are a petite girl, these are for you!  They add a lot of height but only have about a 2-inch heel truly because of the platform.

PLV Gold Jules Sandal

I just received these metallic gold Por La Victoire Jules sandals (sold out, similar here) when we returned from Cabo and put them right on!  They are the perfect barely there sandal and so comfortable.  I wore them yesterday all day with dark jeans and this top (now on sale).  The block heel is a great height and a great addition for Spring.  For those of you who have been asking for something not as high as I usually wear, these are for you!
