Winter has thrown us a welcomed curve so far with mild weather. No schlepping to the store in heavy snowboots, three layers and kids in tow sporting the same! Of course it would be crazy to pack up winter clothing and bring out the spring styles now, but this unseasonably nice weather makes it the perfect time to try out one spring trend: the candy-colored ballet flat. In shades like lemon yellow, cobalt blue, fiery orange and grass green, these statement-making footwear styles look fresh and bright against neutral ensembles. They’re also a great first step toward creating a colorblocked look. Spend a little more on a high quality pair now…you’ll be wearing them all spring and summer.
