It is funny that I am actual blogging about Spring Foot wear when as I look out my window all I see is snow. Then again I love spring and summer winter snowfalls remind me how I love the warm weather. Then again -1 weather is not so bad here in Surrey, BC in comparison to other area like Toronto or Winnipeg. Brrrrrr that is unthinkable. Anyway cheers to the Spring thaw and the green with colorful flower.
Every spring brings a new array of color. Fashion trends go from golden apricot to shades of purple and to the calming effect of sky blue. Choosing the right color of sandals to match your spring wardrobe will make a statement about your excellent taste in fashion.
Read the latest fashion magazines to identify the hot colors for spring.

Think in color to bring out the best choices for your sandal collection. Most wardrobes tend to favor one or two colors or shades of the same color. Look for sandals that have multiple shades of color that match your outfits.

Pick up a pair of sandals in neutral shades to wear with all your outfits that are not in a specific color scheme. For instance, if most of your wardrobe is in various tones of blue, you’ll need sandals to wear with those stray pieces in orange, green or purple.

Make a fashion statement this spring when you step out in sandals that dazzle. Color is added to some sandal styles by embellishing the straps with gemstones of different colors. Celebrate any occasion with embellished sandals that match your outfit.

Reverse the normal approach to shopping for your spring wardrobe by buying the sandals first and then finding the right apparel to match. It is sometimes more difficult to find the right sandals to complement an outfit than it is to find an outfit to match the shoes.

Match the color of your sandals to your shirt or top. For instance, a red pair of sandals is a good choice with white capris and a bright red tee.

Take a hint from the flowers that bloom in spring to pick your color for sandals. The choices range from lily white to brilliant purple.

Pick up a pair of thongs to match your cover-up for your swimwear. Cool fashion doesn’t end when you go to the beach.

To answer this question simply no not everyone is going to look good in sandals. You don’t to look bad in them either. Follow a few step and your toes and heel will look very ok. Yes Guys some of the is for you to.

Scrape or Scrub the dead skin of the bottom of your feet. Use a pumice stone or foot file in the shower but remember soaking for a few minutes in a foot bath is best.

Trim your nail evenly and straight across.

Use a good moisturizer. It will keep the skin nice a young looking. Yes, your age showing through your feet.

Clear Polish is great for Spring and Summer. If you want to wear a color on you great but make it match your skin tone and personality. We all have seen some crazy things work cause it just fits who you are.  Being Daring if that is who you are don’t fake it because it is ok to be you.

How to Break in Sandals


yellowblossom_top

  1. Buy the right size. Don’t try to squeeze your feet into sandals that are too small. It’s a good way to do some permanent damage to your toes.
  2. Test a hidden patch on the sandal. Look for a piece of leather that can’t be seen by you or anyone else. Wet it with water and check to see if the color changes. Should the color change, you might not want to wet them.
  3. Put on the sandals and step into a bucket of water. You can forgo the bucket and spritz them with a water spray bottle, too. This trick will cause the sandals to mold to your feet.
  4. Towel off the remaining water. You don’t want the sandals to be dripping all over the place. Wear them until they dry.
  5. Buy a leather moisturizer. If all else fails, leather moisturizer will soften the leather. You can find it a shoe stores or online.
  6. Rub a small amount of the moisturizer on the sandals. Cover the entire shoe. Wait a few minutes and wipe off the excess.

Clear Lucite and Rhinestone Sandal at Michael's Clogs

The snow is melting or at least should be and you are getting ready for Spring. Time to buy the perfect Spring outfit and the perfect spring strappy shoes. Now you think my toes have not been exposed to anything but thick woolly socks for months. What do my feet look like. Before you wear that perfect outfit you need to take of a few things. This is a shoe blog so we are going to stick to talking about a pedicure and make your feet look beautiful and sexy.

  • Step1 Remove any old nail polish thoroughly.
  • Step2 Soak your feet in warm water for 10 to 15 minutes. Add Epsom salts or any other commercial foot soak.
  • Step3 Clip your toenails straight across using a toenail clipper or scissors. Clipping straight across will help prevent ingrown toenails.
  • Step4 File the toenails to smooth any rough edges.
  • Step5 Push back your cuticles. Use a cuticle moisturizer if they do not push back easily after soaking.
  • Step6 Massage your feet with a moisturizing lotion. Use an exfoliating lotion if the skin is dry and/or roughened. Use a loofah or pumice stone on roughened areas.
  • Step7 Separate your toes. Put cotton between your toes, or use a ready-made device for pedicures.
  • Step8 Apply a base coat and give it time to dry.
  • Step9 Apply polish, cleaning up any stray marks with a cotton swab dipped in polish remover. Add a second coat for deeper color.
  • Step10 Complete the pedicure with a top coat of clear polish.

Sandal Etiquette for Work

Cape Clogs Bohemian

Cape Clogs Bohemian

I found this blog about sandals in the work place. It has some good advice to avoid showing our feet in the wrong light.  At the end of this I will show some of our sandals at Michael’s Clogs that should fit the work place.

The following is from Shoesmarker.com

As casual wear becomes the norm at most offices, sandals have begun to be accepted at corporate offices nationwide.  However, there are still a few precautions you should take when wearing these comfortable shoes at work.  Follow these handy tips to ensure that you are “doing the right thing” when it comes to toe exposure at the office.  These tips apply to both women and men.

1. Dress it Up

The sandal that you wear at the office should not be the sandal that you wear on the weekend.  They should be dressier sandals that you reserve for office wear only, and be made out of leather or suede rather than any synthetics or any fabrics.  Leather & suede make the sandal look more upscale.  Avoid flip flops and plastics at all costs, regardless of how casual you think the office is.  It is never that casual.

2. Limit Overflows

Your feet should never overhang any portion of the sandal.  This applies to the little toe if the sandal is too narrow, or the heel if it isn’t long enough.  Likewise to feet bulging through straps; it is best to avoid a strappy sandal at the workplace altogether to keep from committing this faux pas.  This is not only for appearance, but for your safety as well.

3. Ban The Yellow

You shouldn’t have any spots on your feet that are callused or yellow.  The backs of your heels are especially visible in most sandals and should be taken care of.  Sand down any yellowed portions with a pumice stone or similar implement.

4. Keep It Trimmed

Your toenails should be trimmed and kept clean.  Sandals allow more of an accumulation of dirt on the nail, so you should wash and moisturize your feet every night to guard against infections and keep your feet and toenails in good shape.

5. The Pedi is a Necessity

Male or female, you should get a pedicure to ensure that your cracked, sick skin does not show.  Do not force the rest of the world to look at open orifices on your feet.  It is disgusting, even if it is a part of you.  Get it looked after.  The frequency of your pedicures should vary with the ick-factor of your feet.  If you know you have problem feet, go for biweekly peds.  If you have normal feet, once every month or two should do the job.

6. Shave the Beast

This is especially for the men in the crowd.  If you have some hair on the tops of your toes, shave it off.  It will not make you womanly to do so – it will keep your boss from staring at your short and curlies while you are trying to dazzle them with your quarterly report.

7. When to Not Wear Sandals

If your feet are completely hideous and will not look any better without plastic surgery, or you cannot afford to get regular pedicures, you should not wear sandals in the workplace.  They are also not acceptable in colder weather.  There is some controversy over whether or not they are acceptable after Labor Day due to the excessive heat Septembers are starting to bring us, but generally temperature dictates the fashion.  If you have to wear a jacket, don’t wear sandals.  Otherwise, feel free to expose those toes.

8. Nylons or Socks With Sandals

You are at work, not at your future rest home.  Never.  Ever.  Period.

9. Fight the Urge to Itch

With access to your feet comes access to the itch on your feet.  Keep anti-itching powder in your desk to put on your toes when you feel the need to scratch your feet.  If anyone sees you itching your feet and flakes of skin falling off, their urge to visit the bathroom immediately afterwards to lose their lunch may be greater than your urge to stop the itching.  Just a dab of powder will do the trick and keep your co-worker’s lunches where they belong – in their tummies.
