I am consistently on the hunt for the perfect nude strappy sandal. I need something that is fairly walkable, but looks like I made some effort when I throw them on to walk to dinner or out for drinks. Ideally, it should be something with a shorter heel, and not so many straps that it looks like my foot is into fifty shades of something. Because my footwear tends to take a bit of a beating in the summer, I try not to spend too much on shoes that I run around in. For this set, the value added are the perfect pair for me – I think Isola makes a gorgeous shoe and their sandals hold up for multiple seasons. Do you have a summer sandal favorite?

Friends, you heard it here first – Grommets are this year’s studs. Where your Valentino Rockstuds might be feeling a bit tired, this is an easy way to add edge and look a little more fresh. Pieces like this JAX Grommet dress are wonderful ways to get the look with minimal investment. There are still a ton of sizes left in this dress over at Last Call, with the possibility of adding a coupon on top of this already great steal. And because everything old is new again, take a peak through Refinery 29’s 2013 grommet fashion trend story for some inspiration. If we’re lucky, some one has ditched these beauties at your local thrift.

I have a pair of floral pumps that I am nuts about, and that seem to go with everything. In the way that Jenna taught us leopard is a neutral , I’d argue that these bad boys are the spring equivalent. They are the perfect bright punch with all black. (My New York self still can’t help but be in black head to toe most days!) Also, depending on the pattern, they can be a marvelous way to pull out and highlight a color from your outfit. The bar below has all sorts of fun picks! From the dreamy Manolos to the budget Charlotte Russe, there’s a floral pump to be added to your closet this spring!
