Hurrah, spring is here! Everyone is welcoming the warmer weather and the chance to break out those tank tops, linen skirts and preppy twinsets. Of course, no outfit is complete without shoes, so Ross Dress for Less in San Francisco is holding their annual Shoe Event this week! It began on March 23 and runs through April 30, with every style of shoe you can think of for spring and beyond.
To celebrate their Spring Shoe event, Ross kindly sent me a $25 gift card so I could check out their new spring styles and tell everyone about it (they've also given me a second gift card to give away, read all about it below!). $25 goes a long, long way at Ross, and I eagerly made a visit to Ross to see just how far that $25 could go.
As I approached the shoe section, I was assaulted with style upon style:
Strappy sandals! Wedges! Espadrilles! Peep toes! Spring colors... pink, white, yellow, tan .... and the accents... flowers, glitter, gems... to cute to be true! The choices were great, even for size 9, 10, and 11 (if you're a Bay Area Bigfoot like me, note that the San Francisco Market Street Ross has THE biggest selection of large-size women's footwear!). None of the shoes I saw, by the way, cost more than $25, so I was spoiled for choice.
Espadrilles are all the rage now, so I tried on quite a few pairs.
I absolutely loved the natural weave pattern on this pink pair. It was so comfy and cute!
I was sorely, soooooorely tempted by these peep-toe espadrilles. They are so feminine and dainty, and they'd look equally great with a skirt or capris. I really wanted a navy pair since I plan to wear lots of white and navy in the coming months... unfortunately these were a tad uncomfortable for my feet. They are canvas, so I think they probably would stretch, but I'm always nervous about shoes that don't feel good from the get-go. Still, I was all set to buy them.... and then I saw these beauties:
This is a match made in heaven! Ultra comfy, ultra-stylish, ultra-casual, just what I was looking for. I got them for the unheard-of price of $12.99! They were so inexpensive, I had enough left over to indulge in these pretty, strappy sandals:
These will go so well with the dress I bought for our school mother-daughter Easter brunch! I'm so excited to wear them! These were only $14.99, so I paid less for those 2 pairs of shoes than I would have paid for just one of them at a department store. In fact, I may run back to Ross and get those peep-toe espadrilles.....
