Spring usually means a flip to fresher, brighter colors.
And really, I’m all for that. But the impending arrival of a new, warmer season doesn’t mean you have to ditch your favorite cold-weather colors altogether. Especially in this period of transition between the harsh end of winter and the real start of milder days ahead, the perfect pieces can sometimes come in classic, wintry colors, but in fresh styles and silhouettes.
That’s why this week’s Goodwill gem is such a lovely find! These darling little wedges are made in a classic material – soft, supple leather – and in neutral hues of tan and black. Mixing the two tones together in one beautifully crafted shoe, however, looks incredibly modern, and will give a chic and sophisticated lift to any spring ensemble.
Think about spring!
We’re not quite there yet, but you can still start cleaning our your closet now and make room for gorgeous new seasonal pieces. These wedge sandals would be absolutely stunning with just about any spring or summer outfit you could think to put together – cropped pants and loose, airy blouse, or paired with a bright floral sundress and classic cardigan. You really can’t go wrong with a find like this one! But if you’re looking to stretch the wardrobe you already have and get more mileage out of your favorite pieces, then you could easily pop these shoes on with a simple and flattering dark sheath dress like this one – always appropriate for the office or for more fun events like drinks and dinners afterward, a sophisticated sheath like this one (also a thrift store purchase!) never goes out of style, and would look totally timeless and chic when paired with these elegant wedges.
