Okay, my fellow Shoe-A-Holics, while we are still waiting on warmer days to come (and stay), one shouldn't totally abandon common sense for the likelihood of a remote possibility; granted, I love the sun just as much (perhaps even more than) the next person, but while the date may read spring, the mercury has been less than agreeable and for all intents and purposes, it is still winter!
Another of my favorite winter-to spring transition pieces is a suede boot. During the throngs of winter, when you're battling with slush and snow, functionality is first and foremost for footwear, and you grab your winter boots. When weather predictions are less harsh or the sidewalks have been cleared, you grab a pair of leather boots. But when the days are still cold, and the threat of precipitation has been virtually eliminated, then comes the perfect opportunity for suede. As warm as its leather counterpart, yet more flexible (at least to me), suede offers a rich textural contrast to your outfit. Pair your boots with a suede bag to bring unity between the boots and outfit, try a bag in a different color to keep the look fun and relaxed.
Baci a tutti!
