Hey guys! Today, I’m featuring part 2 of my spring partnership with Cole Haan! I’m styling three different pairs of spring to summer shoes: the Avani City Sandal, the ZERØGRAND Global Double Band Sandal and the Cloudfeel Espadrille. They make a well-rounded trio for the upcoming warm seasons. The Avani is an office to drinks versatile sandal, the ZERØGRAND is a sporty all day walking sandal and the Cloudfeel is an airy full coverage flat. I love Cole Haan’s shoes because they marry all-day comfort with elevated style. Every pair is so lightweight and beautifully designed! Scroll down to read the fully story & hope you enjoy! xo
All Color Options
Soft knit matching sets have been super on trend the past year, and I am ALL HERE FOR IT! The CO weather is sunny, yet chilly, so having a head to toe “sweater” is perfect for the transitional weather. For my petite frame, I love going monochromatic because it elongates the body while creating and instantly cohesive look. This set is so elegant, and the ribbed texture gives it dimension. I love these sets because they are foolproof. No thinking required!
To add some height and dressiness, I paired this matching ribbed set with the Avani City Sandal. The Avani is like my nude pointy toe pumps – can literally be paired with anything! It’s a beautiful option for the warm seasons to come because the design is clean and modern, yet my toes can breath. The Amphora Leather was the perfect neutral color, and the block heel allows for all day walking without sacrificing the height.
Avani City Sandal
For my second look, I leaned in with an edgier street style outfit, pairing an all black base with an oversized lightweight blazer. Consider this a summer casual “suit”. I went with a cropped tube top to show a sliver of skin to break up all the black layers and paired that with an old pair of simple linen shorts. This blazer adds the perfect cool factor with the contrasting buttons and oversized masculine fit.
Here I went with the sporty ZERØGRAND Global Double Band Sandals in silver. How fresh is that metallic pop!? I love how it glimmers in the sun! I wanted the sandals to shine, and I thought the all black ensemble would be the perfect backdrop. The BEST thing about this pair is how COMFORTABLE they are! They have a statement cushioned GRANDFØAM footbed that makes you feel like you’re walking on marshmallows. I have six toes on each foot, making it so hard to find sandals WIDE ENOUGH for my feet. I’m happy to report that these sandals check all the boxes for a real functioning walking sandal. The double metallic leather straps (like the Avani) are so modern and clean, and the elasticated ankle strap secures your foot with the perfect amount of grip.
Last look is one of my favorite classic spring outfit ideas – a crisp white dress or skirt/top combo paired with a light rinse denim jacket. This one is extra cute due to the oversized fit and slouchy shoulders. It feels like you’re borrowing your boyfriend’s jacket, and the loose fit contrasts nicely with the flowy textures underneath. This look is sweet, feminine and screams summer.
The cherry on top was the Cloudfeel Espadrilles in Peach Blush Stitchlite. The soft pink color was the perfect addition to complete this cute look. The upper fabric is sooo light, breathable and not scratchy at all. The texture looks like subtle lace and it pairs well with the natural jute sole (which is chevron patterned). The espadrille in both wedge and flat form convey the classic summer aesthetic. Unlike most clunky, heavy espadrilles, the Cloudfeels have a cored out sole that’s filled with super cushioned foam to make you feel like you’re walking on a cloud. It’s details like this that sets Cole Haan shoes apart. If you’re looking for a full coverage walking shoe for spring to summer, definitely check these out!
