While it might still be cold or even snowing in some parts of the country (ahem, Chicago), it is officially spring so I’m ignoring the weather outside of my window & getting us ready for the well deserved warmer months ahead. The biggest trend in footwear for spring/summer is inspired by our Roman warrior friends. You might recall seeing shorter versions of the gladiator sandal in the past, but this season, the sandal is taller & more “authentic” than in the past. If you are able to splurge, the Chloé lace-up tall Gladiator sandal is absolutely fabulous, Barneys, Suggested Retail: $1,370 (above). I love these sandals with flowy spring dresses; it creates a bohemian, “I’m chic without trying,” look. If you’re on a budget, Zara’s leather Roman sandal is a great choice, Zara, Suggested Retail:$159. Now, if we can just get the weather gods to recognize that it’s supposed to be spring, we’ll be all set.
