Spring is here and I'm already thinking about what I should dig out of my closet for this season (outside of sweatpants once we're not on lockdown mode anymore). The short answer: Not much. I went overboard on Marie Kondo-ing my closet and gave half my warm-weather wardrobe to a local thrift shop. Now, I need to find new spring dresses and shoes that spark joy in my life. I already have some dresses on my wishlist and, as an avid shopper/fashion editor, I know what the new footwear styles are and where to find them. And yes, I will happily share that information with you. Here are 20 new spring shoes to shop as a yay-we-made-it-through-winter treat.
