Transitional Weather...

transitional weather?

It's that time of year. Nope, not Christmas. Something far less friendly and heart-warming - the season of transitional weather. You know, that not-so-nice time in the spring where it's still heavily raining - or worse, lightly snowing, and it's not quite warm enough. Living in a part of the world experiencing all four seasons comes with a cost. Although I'm loving the sunshine we're getting, as soon as I step outside, I always seem to be hit with an "Oh, right, summer's still a while away."

I always forget how much I struggle with my outfit choices - it's still too cold to go bare-legged, too and well, I'm not a girl to throw on jeans. What makes it even more difficult is that store windows are filled with pretty little things for summer - all the fantastic sandals and summer dresses are incredibly tempting, but then I remember that I can't wear any of it for another two months.. For me though, the biggest struggle is footwear.

What are transitional weather shoes?!

I suppose the point of writing this is to beg for any advice - what can I wear on my feet with a dress and tights? I feel like flats and sneakers are jeans-wear items, so I'm stuck. I would wear heels daily, but I'd kind of like to pick up an easier look so I don't look quite as overdressed on a daily basis. Is spring jeans-wearing weather? Is it time for me to brave the cold air on my feet with tights and flats?

My dear fashionable seasonal-change-survivors - how do you cope?

I was going to suggest flats. lol.
Or flat boots perhaps. That is a tough one. I usually wear flats. Sorry I'm not much help

I can't cope.
I live for fall/winter dressing.

Transitional weather shoes - that's a hard one for me to. I would go with flats, but it's true they do seem like jean wear items. Hmmm, maybe loafers? or boots?
