March arrives…and I always wake up expecting spring to be here….anticipating wearing an adorable midi dress, enjoying the tulips and sunshine — birds singing on my shoulder all day long. (Yes, this IS sometimes what I fantasize about — I was definitely meant for summer work as a dancing, singing Disney character.) Unfortunately, every year I forget that spring doesn’t officially start until March 20th, and that we often don’t have ACTUAL spring weather in Philly until April or May. AND, this year I woke up on March 1st to three inches of snow. Apparently, I have to wait a little bit longer for spring. On a side note, I actually do the same thing right before fall, expecting to wear cozy fall sweaters and booties, and am sorely disappointed when it’s still 90 degrees when I wake up on September 1st. I obviously have some seasonal weather awareness issues.
I’ve found one of the best ways to satisfy my itch for spring is to bring out my spring sneakers. It’s not practical to start sporting my favorite Fitflops with pedicured toes quite yet, but a spring sneaker (maybe even showing a bit of ankle) is just right. This is also the time that I look at the dirty black sneakers I’ve been wearing all winter and realize it may be time to do a refresh on those too.
So many good sneaker refresh options for spring 2019. I tried to include a range of price points — from awesome sneaks in the $70 range, to some beautiful kicks in the pricey range for you ladies who like your sneakers FANCY. Try the very popular animal/snakeskin print, a fresh pair of darker sneaks, a pastel or lighter neutral, a clean bright white, or one of the Bold New Spring Colors of 2019. As I said, lots of good options. Happy browsing!
