Obsession #1 – The Leather Flatform
Girls – it’s time to let those feet out. Get those pedicures ready because this spring is all about the sandals. And not in the way that you were probably expecting – this season your classic flat sandal gets a chic update with a super flirty flatform. Once a long-forgotten trend of the 1990s, the flatform is the perfect way to add a littleheight to your look and a little oomph to your style. Not only are they super comfortable to wear, but they look totally edgy-chic, too. Our favorite flatform of the season? Definitely has to be our gorgeous Julie Sandals. These sexy little numbers feature a totally gorgeous pebbled leather upper in a sleek minimalist design that totally begs to be worn and seen. A flirty buckle at the ankle keeps these babies safe and secure whether you’re heading out to brunch or to a festival outdoors. The contrasting flatform adds an edgy touch of color blocking that makes them perfect for pairing with pretty much anything and everything in your closet for spring.
Obsession #2 – The Minimalist Heeled Sandal
While we’re totally in love with the perfect flat sandal for our day-to-day travels, we can’t forget how much we love our heeled ones. Now that it’s finally spring, we can totally break these bad boys out without worrying about our poor feet freezing if we go outdoors or head to a bar with an open window or two. And this year, it’s all about the minimalist heeled sandal. A sleek barely-there design and luxe materials make this style perfect for elongating those sexy legs, especially when paired with shorter springtime hemlines.
And our favorite minimalist heeled sandals definitely have to be our totally gorgeous Carrson Block Heels. These babies are the perfect combination of classic and modern, with a simple yet chic design and a contemporary block heel that makes them perfect for wearing all day or night. The luxe suede upper adds an elegant touch, especially when paired with the delicate buckle at the ankle.Available in super sexy black and barely-there nude, these babies will definitely be our go-to heeled sandal for spring, summer, and beyond.
Obsession #3 – The Not-So-Classic Espadrille
Don’t worry babe – this isn’t your mom’s espadrille. Spring 2018 is all about wearing the tried-and-true trends in new and exciting ways and this is totally the way to get this spring and summer classic into your wardrobe without looking frumpy. Try experimenting with the classic basket-weave texture in different places in your pieces, like in the sole or straps.

These sexy, modern little numbers are designed with an of-the-moment flatform paired with a chic leather upper for a minimalist aesthetic.

Obsession #5 – The Updated Ankle Boot
For 2017, it was all about the ankle boot. This year, we’re ready to update our tried-and-true favorite with the perfect piece for spring. The look is a little more minimalist than your favorites from the winter season, since bold and colorful prints tend to take center stage for the spring. On the runways of New York, luxe simplified ankle boots dominated the scene with subtle details that didn’t take away from the outfit.

Obsession #6 – The New Athleisure
Forget Yeezy – this season we’re all about the attainable new athleisure look. Long gone are the outrageous price tags and the weirdly unwearable designs. For the spring, we’re all about affordable and totally chic athleisure. If you’re already a fan of modern street style, you definitely know what we’re getting at here. The new wave of athleisure shoes is all about comfort, a minimalist aesthetic, and luxe materials.
