Don’t put the“Ewww” in Shoes
Well ladies, spring time is in full bloom and it’s time to make sure your wardrobe is, too. Bring out your sun dresses, rompers and short-shorts, it’s time to show off those sun-deprived stems.
No spring outfit is complete without the proper accessories. Most importantly, shoes. Flip-flops, wedges and sling-back flats are all spring-time styles that can make every girl feel free and sexy.
But with fun shoes comes maintenance. Taking advantage of pedicures, lotions, oils and scrubs is imperative when wearing toe-showing shoes. A brand new pair of Steve Madden’s just isn’t so sexy when being worn by ashy feet with chipping nail polish.
Every girl loves going to get a spa pedicure at her favorite nail shop with the girls, but sometimes the budget just doesn’t allow for it. The next best solution? Grab your best nail file and clippers, some baby oil, towels and your your favorite moisturizing body lotion and give yourself a fabulous homemade pedicure! It’s cheap and fun and can look just as good if you take your time!
Exfoliation and moisturizing are both very important when taking care of your feet. A good way to keep your feet soft and sandal-ready is to wear socks around the house after applying lotion! It helps to insulate your feet while, at the same time, removing oils. This is perfect for when you’re getting ready for a night out with friends and you’re fearful of your feet slipping and sliding around. Twenty minutes wearing the socks and you’re good to go.
Feet still moving around too much due to sweat or lose sandal straps? Try a little Firm Grip, mentioned in last week’s article, and some Dr. Scholl’s foot petals. They’ll give you that extra grip you need when walking around.

Put away the UGGs and closed toe pumps, it’s time to soak those toes and slip then in a sexy pair of summer friendly sandals!
