I don’t know about you, but gift cards seem to burn a hole in my pocket.
I received a Nordstrom gift card just before Christmas, and I’d say I did a pretty good job at holding onto it until now. I almost immediately turned around and put it toward a cozy sweater, but instead hid it away so it wasn’t tempting me by staring me in the face every day. I’m thanking myself now as spring styles are appearing on (physical and virtual) shelves and I’m finding myself lusting over a lot of it.
After leaving a pair of sneakers out of my suitcase on the way back from Ireland – if you know me, you know I always leave one, usually small thing behind almost everywhere I go – I decided it was time for a little retail therapy, so I turned my attention to athletic-but-not-performance shoes as a replacement. After finding myself going back and forth between this pair and this pair, both in pink, I started getting distracted by the suggested products (go figure) and I realized there are a lot of great options to choose from right now at really affordable prices.
My heart seriously melted when I came across these Rebecca Minkoff velvet loafers – that didn’t fall under the gift card umbrella, but I couldn’t help but love them anyway.
So, in an effort to share the love, the pretty spring shoes and a couple pairs of sunglasses I’ve been constantly coming back to, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites I came across during my search. All are at or under $100 with some way below, so it won’t break the bank to up your style game with a new statement this spring.
Oh, and after much deliberation, I went with these for a shoe I’m sure to wear with mostly everything once socks are not required.
