What a Stud

A first blog-wear of my newest pair of shoes. I think I am in love (sorry, hubs. They're turquoise and covered in gold studs. I'm sure you understand.)
Today I am wearing:
-white tee, Banana Republic
-navy cropped sweater jacket, H&M
-creme eyelet skirt, French Connection
-turquoise studded pumps, Jeffrey Campbell
-navy beret, Parkhurst
-creme scarf, bought on the street in Chinatown
Can you say perfect weather? Today was sunny and bright with a hint of a breeze. My light little sweater was just the right touch, and the scarf helped me inside the museum, which sometimes doubles as a huge walk-in refrigerator. 
I decided to take photos in my newly-discovered spot, smack in the median of a local busy street. As I mentioned before, there is a program to turn these areas, which sometimes attract a rather shady element, into green spaces. Today was the first day that the flowers were out in full bloom. It was rather beautiful.
Beware: Shoe photo overload to commence immediately.
And the rest of the details:
 Today's outfit combined what I'd usually consider a purely summer skirt with some warmer elements. It has me wondering:
How do you transition into spring?
Any tips for keeping cool and warm at the same time?

Those shoes are AMAZING! So much fun and I love them with this outfit!

I think they're pumps, rather than flats though. That's one of the reasons I think they are so different and fun on you!

good call, Emily! Sometimes I get so in my flats rut that I forget other shoe names exist!

I love this outfit! It's so perfect for spring. I pretty much do what you do in the shoulder seasons - layer and take off scarves/jackets as needed.

This is goregous. I love the sharp contrasts of the navy and white. It looks so pulled-together and lovely. Love it.

Wow! I'm seriously in love with those shoes. Where did you get them?!

You have the greatest fashion sense. I love all of the hats that you wear. So cute!

I got the shoes on mega discount from Century 21 (I think they were $50, if I remember correctly.) Since they've got a thick heel, they're pretty comfy, though I did of course travel with flats. Thanks for the sweet comments, all!
