Spring is my favorite time of year because I love all of the bright colors that are out in the stores.  I don't naturally lean towards black and drab colors (in case you haven't noticed!)  Living here in South Florida, we are able to get away with lighter colors because of our warm climate and beach culture. 
Pink is definitely up there as a favorite, add to that a fondness for espadrilles and a little height - without sacrificing comfort- and I thought this pair of wedge shoes was adorable. Personally, I think that heels are great and I love the way they look, but generally speaking, I don't like to wear them very often. I am fortunate that my casual, work-from-home lifestyle affords me the opportunity to dodge regular workplace clothing rules and wear what I like and what works for me personally. Often that includes a bathing suit (under casual clothing - convenient for an afternoon swim break) and flip-flops. There are times when a girl wants a little lift though, and that's when I opt for a comfortable wedge with some style and color like the pair above.
I'd probably sport these with a great pair of white jeans (my Summer staple).

and maybe a bright aqua tank

This is kind of my go-to Spring/Summer casual get-up. 
There are an endless number of color combinations that are great for this time of year, whether you pair jeans and a tank, shorts and a tee, a sun dress and a great pair of metallic sandals or a colorful tunic and leggings. To me, it's all about color and the ease of putting pieces together that look sharp and yet are comfortable and versatile. 
What are a few of your favorite Spring pairings?

Anne, I love each one of these pieces and have been wearing blue wedges with my white jeans--am looking for a mint tee and those pink wedges would be great too!

Hi Anne,
Well, I'm a bit of a black and drab colours kinda gal !! but, I often put a bright pair of shoes or camisole on with my black, just to jazz it all up a bit so, these are perfect for Summer.
Have a lovely, colourful week Anne. XXXX

Beautiful! Though I lean towards charcoal and white a lot for summer I do white (have those jeans already) and various tops (more white, navy, turquoise, coral). I love pink but stopped wearing it a few years ago. I think you have to live in the right place for pink to work. I wear clogs and comfortable shoes, flats mostly but I love espadrilled. Have a great day Anne. xx
