Today I have teamed up with Clarks to bring you a fun post about refreshing your wardrobe for spring! I'm all about spring- cleaning around the house, I love puttering around and dusting my knick knacks and deep cleaning my refrigerator and other appliances. However, when it comes to my closet, I always feel a sense of dread. I think that's because I get overwhelmed when I think of the amount of work it takes to switch my closet out seasonally. When this happens, I realize right away it's because I have way more than what I need and the thought of sorting and paring down is overwhelming! I have been on a constant journey of simplifying my wardrobe and really only keeping those items which I know I'll wear, reflect my personal style, and are comfortable and versatile, but it takes continually diligence to accomplish this feat.
Let's talk a little about some of my favorite tricks for maximizing your wardrobe with less.
1. A purchase should only be made when you need something specific to fill in a gap in your wardrobe.
2. Pieces within your wardrobe should do double duty. Think versatility!
3. Choose quality over quantity.
4. It should reflect your personal style and look.
5. You should feel good in it!
One of the areas I really need to look at simplifying is my shoes. I have a shoe for every possible activity: shoes that I only wear on special occasions, shoes that I wear with skirts, running shoes and running errand shoes, shoes that only work with that extra long pair of denim, and the list goes on and on…… Can anyone out there relate?
Well, enough is enough.
There have to be shoes that work for a variety of situations!! I know that many of you, like me, are used to running from one activity to the next and needing something comfy, yet stylish to wear throughout the day. I'm telling you that I found them and once you try them yourself you will definitely agree!
They are Clarks Cloud Steppers.
These flats literally hug my feet! They are the comfiest shoes I own and I literally will not be taking these off…. ever! I understand completely why these are called, Cloud Steppers because I feel like I am walking on clouds! Another thing I've found from wearing them is there is no break in period. I put them on and haven't felt any uncomfortable rubbing on my skin or my foot sliding around. They are bendy and ready to wear when you take them out of the box.
Let's talk about these shoes.
They are cushiony, bendable, lightweight and super stretchy. I put them on for the first time and was really not sure I would ever wear anything else. The thing is, they have this cushioned sole which is just simply amazing. They are lightweight, versatile and perfect for any occasion. I can safely say that my running errand shoes, my only with denim shoes, my summer skirt shoes and my all- around everyday shoes are now one in the same…. Cloud Steppers!!
Out of all the styles, my favorites are the Sillian Jetay because of the leather upper, which will make them great for year round, use! Aren't those orange ones just the cutest? I can't wait to pair those with a cute summer dress or a bright floral top.

I love that I can get one shoe that serves many purposes yet feels stylish and chic with anything I wear.
