Spring Fever

Bring back bold hues for spring. There still may be a cold winter wind out there, but for a few days at least, we got a taste of the sweetness and sunshine of the coming spring. To get yourself in gear and ready for the new season, there’s no better place to stop in that at your local Goodwill, where you can pick up the fabulous new pieces you want at a fraction of the price.

This week’s find is a fantastic pair of bright magenta heels that are practically brand new. Made in a soft suede fabric, they’re perfect for the transition from winter to spring. The beautiful hue and soft suede fabric will instantly complement any look during this time between seasons. The pointed toe and skinny heel look sleek, but the heel isn’t too high, making these pretty shoes comfortable enough to walk around for a workday or an evening out.

Vivid magenta high heels are the ideal addition to a transitional wardrobe, and will take you anywhere from late winter through early summer.

Instantly inject life into your between-season pieces. It can be hard to dress well when the weather is constantly up and down. But with a fabulous pair of heels like this one, you can immediately add a glamorous touch and pull off a polished look, no matter how many layers you have to carry around with you to stay warm, dry, and comfortable. Here, I’ve decided to pair them with a super simple and casual ensemble that’s just right for a weekend brunch or other relaxed outing. The skinny, stretchy denim on the bottom allows the shoes to be shown off in all their glory, while the basic top, still in a soft, neutral gray tone, adds a little more volume on top without distracting or competing too much with the vibrant color that anchors this look. But of course, darling heels like these could easily be worn with a fancier outfit for a dressier occasion. To create an incredibly ladylike look, you could easily pair these with your favorite little black dress, or with a flowing, silky skirt and blouse.

These sophisticated shoes add just the right refined touch to almost any ensemble you can think to put together, whether you’re adding a bit of oomph to a more casual outfit or looking to dress up for a festive spring party.
