Wow ‘Em with Fresh Citrus Hues

This winter seems never-ending right now. 

It’s the end of February and we’re all longing for spring, but the snow and freezing temps just keep on coming. But that’s why I was so thrilled to spot this week’s find at my local Goodwill thrift shop! These brilliant green open-toed wedges are exactly what every girl should have in her closet come spring, and even if it’s still a little too chilly to wear them right this second, it’s never too early start dreaming about our new favorite spring outfits, right?

And with a cork bottom, just enough heel, and a textured, lime-colored upper, these shoes are perfect for carrying you through spring and all the way through the end of summer. These darling shoes are polished enough to wear to work, but fun enough to wear out wherever else you please, and the vibrant citrus color is sure to add a spark of freshness and energy to all of your warm weather looks.

Start the transition.

As soon as the shoe is off the ground, I’m all for packing away those big winter boots and bringing out all of those lighter and less constrictive shoes that have been hiding away for months. While these lovely lime-green heels would look adorable with a pretty, voluminous floral skirt or classic shirtdress once the temps start to rise, they’re also great for those in-between months – when winter hasn’t fully left us, but spring is clearly in the air. For those tricky months in between the seasons, try pairing these bright and happy shoes with warmer basics, like a neutral sweater with a less-than-full sleeve and a classic pair of navy trousers (really, the combo of deep, traditional navy and these zesty green is a fantastic one). Neither of the other pieces are as bold and bright as the wedges, but the neutral hues contrast with them beautifully, so they truly stand out and wake up an otherwise basic ensemble.
