Put A Spring in Your Step

    They say March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, but that still doesn’t help me decide what to wear on my feet. I don’t know about you, but come mid-March to April, I get a bit confused when it comes to my shoe choice.
    It’s not cold or snowy enough for the fur-lined, driveway shoveling boots, but it’s certainly not warm and dry enough for flip flops or cruise-worthy sandals…and honestly whose toes are up for that challenge? Can you say at-home-pandemic-pedicure?
    As you start to get out and about this Spring, it’s time to lose those clunky Winter boots and think about sprucing up your foot wardrobe.
    What’s appropriate footwear when temps can fluctuate from 40 to 70 degrees in one week?
Here are my top three favorite shoe options for transitioning from Winter to Spring in style.
    1. Booties or ankle boots: Sturdy and warm enough for coldish rainy days, booties come in a variety of colors, styles and patterns. Leather, faux leather or fabric, booties are the ultimate transition shoe and look stylish with almost any outfit. Ankle boots look cute with tights and a skirt, capris, leggings or cuffed jeans.
    2. Fashion sneakers: These are my favorite because, well, they’re sneakers. Popular brands like Converse, Adidas and Skechers make comfy slip-on or laced designs that don’t look like gym shoes. Kicks or slip-ons not only feel good on your feet but also look trendy. You can choose from sporty styles, pastels, metallics and even animal prints. They can be worn with socks when it’s chilly, or without when you’re in a rush out the door. If you cross paths with a mud puddle, most fashion sneakers can be tossed in the washing machine and will come out looking like brand new.
    3. Mules: This stylish shoe is the perfect option if you have a more elegant event to attend or are just going out for a nice dinner (finally). Casual or dressy, slip-on Mules are easy to wear, chic and come in all sorts of fun choices and bright colors. Super versatile, you can wear mules to accent a cocktail dress, suit, or dress pants. They offer plenty of toe coverage and usually have a low heel for comfort and mobility should you get caught in an April shower.
    Now’s the season to spring into some of these in-between shoe styles. Before you know it, it’ll be time to break out those strappy summer sandals and show off that fabulous pedicure!

Poolside Picks

Dive into your summer reading list

(Family Features) Laying out on the beach and floating in the pool are true hallmarks of summer. A good book, however, can elevate these relaxing experiences to a new level.

Whether you find yourself looking for a beach read, a book for the pool or something to help you escape while lounging on the couch with the windows open, these sizzling summer reads offer something for nearly every type of reader. From suspense to romance and adventure, you don’t want to miss these books this summer.

Some Secrets Aren’t Meant to Be Shared

From author Meg Mitchell Moore comes a warm, witty and suspenseful novel filled with small-town secrets, summer romance, big time lies and spiked seltzer. In “Two Truths and A Lie” the leader of an idyllic beach town “mom squad” has made surprising effort to include a new resident and her daughter in typically closed-group activities, though they’re not the only ones she’s been spending more time with. A blend of propulsive thriller and gorgeous summer read, Moore’s latest novel is a reminder that happiness isn’t always a day at the beach, some secrets aren’t meant to be shared and the most precious things are loved ones.

Romantic Adventure Proves Anything Can Happen

No. 1 “New York Times” bestseller Susan Elizabeth Phillips returns to her Chicago Stars series with a romance between a quarterback and one of the world’s greatest opera singers – and a major diva – in “When Stars Collide.” It’s Mozart meets Monday night football as the temperamental soprano and stubborn jock embark on a nationwide tour promoting a luxury watch brand, they engage in soul-searching, trash talk and backstage drama. Threatening letters, haunting photographs and a series of dangerous encounters also complicate their lives and make them wonder if it’s the work of an overzealous fan or something more sinister.

Transatlantic Love Story Raises the Royal Stakes

“New York Times” and “USA Today” bestselling author Alyssa Cole’s second Runaway Royals novel, “How to Find a Princess,” is an Anastasia-inspired romance featuring a long-lost princess who finds love with the female investigator tasked with tracking her down. When a threat to her grandmother’s livelihood pushes the princess to return to Ibarania, the investigator takes her on a transatlantic adventure. When they finally make it, they realize there’s more at stake than just cash and crown, and the princess must learn what it means to fight for what she desires rather than what she feels bound to by duty.
