Looking to add a little Spring to your step? Try a pair of pastel shoes! Now I know that pastels aren’t exactly ground-breaking for Spring but it does seem like this year, they’ve taken over the footwear category a little bit more than in years past (purple is especially big this time around).
Not sure how to wear pastel shoes? Treat them like you would any other light-coloured neutral and wear with everything from denim to dresses. They’re a great way to lighten up some of your favourite colder-weather looks since everything from mules, to pumps, to sandals, to sneakers are available in light pastel hues. For example, does your work look consist of pumps, dress pants and a white blouse? Swap out those black pumps for a pair in light pink and voila – you’re ready for Spring!
Here are some of my top pastel picks, all available at Coquitlam Centre.

A d'Orsay for those of you that don't know, is a style of shoe where the inside section is cut away to reveal your arch. It can be either open-toe or closed-toe but needs to have a full back section. A d'Orsay is not only extremely feminine and elegant but it's also a great transitional shoe as it's not quite a sandal and not quite a pump.
NINE WEST Mossiel d'Orsay Pump available at Hudson's Bay $130*
