Fashion Friday: Spring Shoes & Nails

I went to get a pedicure a few weeks ago and was scolded by the nail technician for being overdue. Like, 4 months overdue.  While the winter months kept my feet in Uggs and Sorels, I kept my nails, well, unkempt.  I’d slap on some polish before a yoga class (maybe) as to not completely gross out the other down-ward doggers, but this winter I really could not give a shit.  Now that spring has sprung (perhaps where you are, because we are still in sweaters here) it’s time to get those southern hemisphere digits in order and ready for open toed shoes! So here I have paired some of my favorite spring shoes with fab nail colors to get you inspired for warm weather!

Dolce Vita beaded sandals are so on trend, and so is bright orange-y red nails.

I was AMAZED when I received this pair of Sofft shoes that look exactly like J.Crew but cheaper AND more comfy (check out the line- you’ll be shocked). Paired with hot pink and some cropped cargo pants they are fierce as H-E-Double L.

Or you can go hot pink (and J.Crew) on the shoes and nude/pink on the toes!

Go preppy and nautical with Sperry Top Sider seersucker wrap wedges and navy tootsies to match. Natch.

A glam pair of rope-y gold flats by Sofft’s fashionable sibling Isola. Metallic digits make it a finished look.

Bold turquoise super high Louboutins can’t be challenged-so keep the toes bare!

Meow.$7 Leopard flip flops meet their match with sassy red paint.

These snakeskin and horn looking heel booties are RIDICULOUS. Love. Especially with taupe toes.

I j’adore the stripe lining of these Manolos– very Parisian. So go all the way with a French pedicure.

Chocolate all around with these leather studded Forever 21 thongs and hot pink nails to draw attention to your bargain.

Who doesn’t want Louboutin’s signature red soles? (Show some respect by matching the toes!)

The wedge espadrille is a MUST HAVE…pair these Michael Kors with light coral. So fab with a tan.

On chillier days ballet flats are fine, and a taupe shade keeps it neat and clean.

Lady killer Tory Burch heels with amazing details are made deadly sexy with near black nails.

Watch out fellas.


  1. What a great post! I see a pedicure in my future and I’m ready to snag a few new pairs of shoes! Headed over to the sofft site right now!
    Happy Easter.

  2. such pretty choices :) my next door neighbor is in the industry so i get to buy nailpolishes at wholesale cost– which is what they should cost in the first place! love it!


  3. speaking of french-y stripes on the manolos – have you checked out Ines De La Fressange’s “Parisian Chic”?!?!?! amazing!

  4. You, darling, are a style genius. Each and everyone of these are enough to give me a foot fetish. I, however am a style sloth, ergo, a perfectly pedi’d toe in a blush nude is my very best friend and after checking with my style elf in my mental mirror, I’m going with my innate leanings. A girl can “work” lazy…

  5. Great post and choices. I bought a pair of Sofft clogs, London, last year and love them. Had never heard of the company before.

  6. Erin! This is my favorite post of all time :) These pairings definitely urge me to get out of my boots and into some sandals. My go=to polish this spring has been Essie’s Big Hair Big Nails. love it!

  7. the Manolo’s & the Forever 21’s are my the nail polish you chose for each…I rarely color my nails…but will be starting to this summer :)))) Happy Easter!

  8. AHA! You’ve finally discovered my secret: shoes by Sofft. Aren’t they fab? They are the only heels I can wear all day in comfort. Besides Sofft’s web site, you can also find them at Nordstrom and Zappo’s.
