Most years by mid-March I’m eagerly waiting the arrival of spring but this winter didn’t feel that tough, we had one big, fun snow storm but it’s been pretty mild.  There’s still a nip in the air that gives you that giddy feeling that a new season is hiding around the corner, the trees on our street are just starting to bloom and the daffodils are popping up in our backyard. And I’m sure ready to put away my boots and flats in lieu of spring sandals! Stripes and jeans are my go-to this time of year — and a fun, yet comfortable sandal is a breath of fresh spring air to my wardrobe.

These block heel sandals are from Hush Puppies — and are the perfect mix of comfort and style…. These days I’m not interested in heels unless I can get away with standing in them for hours for work. I love the nude color which is versatile enough to mix with just about everything in my wardrobe. Did you know March 20th marks the International Day Of Happiness? Hush Puppies is all about smiling at life, so the brand is celebrating International Day of Happiness by giving back! They’ve generously donated $500 in my name to the Make A Wish Foundation…..how awesome is that?

I plan on reflecting back on this list when I’m having a rough day or feeling worn down…it’s important to find joy in the simple pleasures of life.
