There are plenty of fashion shows to catch up on from Paris and Milan, but today we’re talking about spring shoes! Check out if you want a full list of fashion show reviews and photos.

Now, back to shoes. Since I live by the beach, most locals roam around in flip flops or barefoot, but I couldn’t be more excited to purchase some serious spring shoes – even if that means wearing peep-toe booties to the beach.

There was certainly a range on runways, from casual to dressy. In the casual category for spring, are the all-American oxfords. Although generally suited for men, as seen at Max Azria, women can add the masculine accessory for a sportier look. Check out Urban Outfitters to get your very own.

In between causal and dressy are this season’s hot shoe – clogs. This was the signature item from both the Chanel and Louis Vuitton spring collections. But don’t think they’re your typical, boring clog. No, these are sky-high and super sexy (and possibly even comfy). Grab yours at Stuart Weitzman.

As we transition from winter to spring, the peep-toe bootie is the perfect boot/shoe to wear. Diane Von Furstenberg did a metallic dressier version, while Alexander Wang showed a sportier look. Great versions of both can be found at Steve Madden.

Finally, there are t-strap shoes. These are a great alternative to mary janes. I love how Ralph Lauren showed them with boyfriend jeans. They are also a great way to dress up a more sophisticated look, like that at J. Mendel. I’m loving the flat and heel styles shown on

Other shoes to keep your eye out for are gladiator sandals and styles with Lucite details.

Hope these shoe suggestions help put a spring in your step this season!
