As excited as I get about the return of spring, I always seem to view it with a pair of rose-tinted glasses. It isn’t until we’re in the deep throws of the season that I remember it’s an in-betweener season (aka one that doesn’t always consist of sun, warmth, and generally balmier days). In fact, it’s usually packed with rain and weather that can run up and down a 20-degree scale within 12 hours. Suffice it to say, all of those leg-baring, sandal-centric outfits I dream up aren’t always appropriate when spring actually arrives. To prepare myself, I’m going to back to the outfit drawing board.
If there’s one thing I do know, it’s that I’ll be entering spring armed with plenty of booties. If I can’t rely on sandal weather just yet, closed-toe shoes are the weapon of my choice. So to get some inspiration for how to build the perfect spring bootie ensemble, I’m running through a list of the best transitional outfits I’ve seen this month. It’s time to get shopping.
