Slides for spring 2017

Pictured: black suede slides

Shoe trends for spring 2017 are crystal clear; slides, mules and Adidas sneakers. When the occasion calls for something dressier then sneakers, you will need slides for spring 2017, or a pair of mules for the season.

Slides and mules have been sneaking into fashion for the past three years. It is in the spring 2017 season that they have taken the streets by storm; leaving little room for any other shoe style!

Since shoes are being shown highly embellished, tied in bows, denim, printed with patterns or stripes, and in classic solid color styles for spring 2017, there is a style of slides or mules for every taste, occasion, and comfort level. Love that!

It does not matter if you like flats, heels, covered toes, open toes, leather, fabric, suede, or other, there is a style of slides, or mules, out there for you this spring season. There is no wrong slide or mule on the market! Anything goes, as long as your shoe is backless. Love!

Mules and slides were on the spring runways in New York for the spring and summer seasons. Not only were they on the catwalk, they made it to the streets quickly! It seems as though everyone has at least one pair of slides or mules this season. If you are wondering what to add to your closet for spring, I would recommend one pair of black mules, a light colored pair of slides, and a third pair in a fun print for spring. This will give you two basic options to wear with almost anything, and one fun pair for spicing up a neutral outfit or jeans with a tee.

These are my absolute favorite slides for spring 2017 and mules for the year. (mules will carry you into fall and winter!!). From top left: street style black slide (very NYFW) / Gucci Princeton (hot IT shoe-get it while it is in stock!) / embellished mule (great style for under $100!!) / striped slides (two trends in one!) / Gucci Marmont slides (hot IT shoe) / slides with tassels (these are so cute and under $110!-on my wish list!!) / multi-colored striped mules (three spring trends in one!!) / black mules (I have these in beige, pictured above, super comfortable-love!!) / black studded mules (so cute and under $175!!)

Slides for spring, and mules for the year, are such great shoe styles to invest in now. They are comfortable, and fun to wear. I am in love with all of the pairs pictured in the collage above; I wish I could fit them all in my closet!! Which pair is your favorite? Have you jumped on the slides for spring trend yet? Did you grab a pair of mules yet? Mules will carry you into fall; good long-term shoe shoe investment for the year!

Wearing: Ivory tassel earrings / YSL lipstick / pale pink ruffle shirt (under $30) / Cult Gaia Ark bag / boyfriend jeans (old, also love this pair)  / black watchKendra Scott ring / Gucci spring nail polish / pale pink wedges (under $175)

No-one can deny, ruffles are a huge trend for the spring 2017 season. We saw them on the runways, and then they took the streets by storm. Of course the ruffle trend did not just start now, it started a few seasons ago, and this season is has exploded beyond belief!

It seems as if everywhere I turn this spring season I see ruffles! It is almost like they are chasing me around! Well, I love ruffles for spring, and I am happy they are everywhere! There is something carefree and fun about ruffles. They are playful and light; making any outfit fabulous and fun at the same time. Love!

I was so thrilled to find this pale pink blouse for under $30. Not only does it offer a carefree silhouette, it has ruffles! Oh the fun of it! My daughters love it too, they think it is so much fun. It is really comfortable with my loose fitting boyfriend jeans. This has turned into my go-to casual look for spring when I want to feel comfortable yet pulled together.

What do you think of the ruffle trend for spring? Are you wearing ruffles for spring, if so, how do you like to wear them?

Wearing: hat (also love this one) / YSL lipstick / Kendra Scott earrings / maxi dress c/o OhConcept / Cult Gaia Ark bag / Kendra Scott ring / Gucci spring nail polish / black watch / espadrilles (fabric version)

Spring is here! This means I am starting to think about vacations; both spring break and summer. It would be so nice to find a beach somewhere and sleep on it for a whole week! My kids schedules are wearing me out, I need a huge nap!

This maxi dress from OhConcept is perfect for my current mood. It has a vacation vibe, yet can easily be worn here in the San Francisco Bay Area at home. I wore this dress the other day to have lunch with my kids in downtown Saratoga, at the library, and to run errands. It was really comfortable, and made my day seem a little bit lighter since I felt like I was dressed for a beach getaway! Love that!

This dress by OhConcept is made from a lightweight jersey fabric and has a fun, open back. There is also a tie at the waist which adds a nice silhouette to the dress, as well as a fun little tassel on the side. Love it!

I cannot wait to plan a beach getaway and wear this dress non-stop while on vacation. It is the perfect vacation outfit idea for spring break or a summer getaway! This dress is also fabulous to wear right now, and well into the summer months, right here at home. It will be fun to wear casually with sandals or espadrilles, or pair with heels for a dressier look. Love this dress!

You can find this beautiful maxi dress by OhConcept online here, and you can find the entire OhConcept collection online at OhConcept.com. You will love their collection, they have so many fashionable, casual options which are perfect to wear right now! Love!
