Spring's Most Wanted: The Flat Mule
I think by now we can all agree that we are pretty much done with winter. Over the weekend it was about 60 degrees here, and you would have thought it was 90! People were walking around in short sleeve t-shirts and a few brave souls were actually wearing shorts (!!!). I used to think this type of behavior was a little unnecessary, but after thirteen winters in New England, I finally get it. If you will it, it will come. If there is a day that feels like spring, you have to embrace it and if you have the chance to leave the heavy parka behind- DO IT!
Since retailers are currently rolling out their new spring arrivals, I figured it would be fun over the next few weeks to highlight what I think a few of the trends will be. There are a few things that we will be seeing in the coming season and I always feel like it's better to get these things early in because you will always have more sizing options and you never know when another unseasonably warm day will roll around. (I'm pretty sure there is nothing that is more mood lifting than wearing your new spring outfit on a warm day in February!)
Right now, the number one item on my spring wish list is a pair of flat mules / slides. I think we are going to be seeing this shoe EVERYWHERE in the coming season and I for one could not be happier. A flat mule is quite possibly the most comfortable shoe there is, given the lack of heel height and backless nature (no rubbing), and that is something that I can definitely get on board with. They look great dressed down with jeans, and can easily be dressed up for a night out or for work. The most coveted pair is going to be a carryover from the fall, the Gucci mule, and yes, these are the number on thing on my wish list right now (and probably forever).
Below I've rounded up some incredible mule inspiration, and picked out a few of my favorites that are currently available. Spring is only 26 days away, get ready!!!! Xx
