Winter To Spring Transitional Style


The weather in So Cal has been kind of crazy lately.  Just two weeks ago it was cold and rainy and even snowing in some parts.  Now our high is peaking close to 90!!  Overall though, spring is easily So Cal’s most beautiful season.  Once the weather levels off, temperatures tend towards ideal (70-ish) with a warm spring breeze, and of course flowers are blooming everywhere.  The foliage here is not to be beat…even the weeds are pretty, lol.  During this season it’s not quite warm enough for summer clothes, but a lightweight knit would do perfectly.  I spotted this slightly cropped, oversized sweater at H&M a few weeks ago and knew I had to have it…I love the silhouette and the embellished neckline! Here I paired it with a (super old) printed maxi and some wedge gladiator sandals that I’ve had for years and absolutely love.  The jewelry is by JewelMint (i.e. cute and affordable).  This look was shot strolling around my local neighborhood at the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains…

Tuesday Shoeday: Dolce Vita

I absolutely adore Dolce Vita for shoes.  For a long time they also made apparel, but it appears they’ve phased that out to focus on what they do best.  They offer two lines – their main line, Dolce Vita, and the slightly lower priced but still very appealing DV.  I own shoes from both.  The designs are similar though the quality of fabric tends to be a bit higher with Dolce Vita versus DV.  I’m happy with all my Dolce Vita shoes…the DV line may not be as high quality, but they’re definitely budget friendly and still super cute.  Sooooo here are some of my top picks for spring, straight from the Dolce Vita website.

Annnnddddd here are some of my very own shoes, from previous appearances on the blog…
