Outfit of The Day For April 10, 2012. Spring As We Know It

April 10, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day

Today is a typical Chicago spring day. It is chilly and may get down to the 30s tonight, so I have to bundle up, but I don’t want to dress like it is winter. This cream colored vest by Chicago designer Vika Brown is just right for today – under a coat. These Belle by Sigerson Morrison booties are closed up, but the peep toe makes them appropriate for spring.
