Stepping into Spring

Thanks to Vionic for sponsoring this post! My style and opinions are my own.

I know I'm far from alone in my anticipation of spring, and maybe even Mother Nature is feeling a little anxious right now, having swiftly dispatched of the four inches of snow which fell on Sunday. Even if the temperatures do still hover around freezing, this is the time of year when I start to swap my black shoes and accessories for whites, brights, and metallics. Even when layered up in coats and sweaters during the chilly start to spring, ditching the black makes me feel as though I’ve mentally flipped the switch and started the transition into spring.

Plus, on the days when there isn't snow, I can slip into these super comfortable loafer slides that Vionic sent over. I think we can all agree that mules and loafers are having their moment and I can not get over how cute these are in the metallic silver! Vionic is another wonderful shoe maker who puts comfort on the same level as style, offering shoes with arch support as well as a padded footbed, and resulting in a pair of shoes I can happily wear all day. On the note of prioritizing comfort while not sacrificing style, I'm not embarrassed to admit that I do wear nude trouser socks with my flats in the winter, because every little bit helps, and I bet you can't even tell.

For sizing with Vionic's shoes, I've found they run wide enough that I can go a half size down in the flats and sandals. Though for the boots I went with my usual size.

  1. Wow - the weather in these photos does look decidedly spring-like! I was just in Toronto briefly, which is closer to you, and it definitely felt like spring... completely with grey skies and lots of rain. I could have done without the rain but it was nice to be able to realistically see that warmer days are on the horizon and with them, exposed ankles and heels. I love my mules and have hated to leave them in my closet all season. This pair is just adorable on you, I love the meticallic silver, especially paired with white and grey.

  2. Such a pretty neutral look and these loafer mules are adorable.


  3. It definitely looks like Connecticut is well on its way to spring (I wish I would say the same for Alberta). And those shoes are just stunning - they look like that could be a real statement piece and look great paired with all this white in the rest of your outfit.

  4. Those are so cute! And I LOOOOVE them with the (almost) all white look!

  5. I love your mules, and the entire outfit! You look so comfy and stylish. I'm ready for Spring to arrive as well. Can't wait.


  6. I love those beautiful mules! It's nice when shoes run wide, I find that too many of them run narrow. I have slightly wide feet so I will have to check out Vionic!

  7. I love those slides! I've been thinking about shoes for spring and I think I need to find a pair similar to those--the tassels are so fun too. And so smart to wear trouser socks... you're right, you totally can't tell!

  8. Truthfully, I'm a little jealous of the weather you're having. We still have snow and lots of cold. But I'll be wearing my mules as soon as I can!!

  9. Vionic has seriously stepped up their shoe game!! And I adore these flats, the color is so cute for spring!


  10. YES, come on spring!! And love seeing white this time of year, such a fresh colour & a great reminder that warmer days are to come! Plus... those shoes, love em'! xo

  11. Nice and cool outfit ... can't wait for spring to be back!

  12. I love these silver loafers! Super cute and will be killer come spring- which cannot come soon enough!

  13. Vionics are so comfortable.I had them for work shoes but I want to get a pair of their flats. Those slides are very cute. I love when style can be comfortable.

  14. I love all of the tassels - on your loafers and on your bag. I'm SO ready for spring and am wearing transitional pieces whenever I can.

  15. These pictures are putting me in the spring mood and I love it!

  16. Love the tassels on those shoes. Also, that coat looks so comfy and cozy - perfect for spring when it's warm but still chilly.

  17. The shoes are so stylish I did not even consider the comfort factor !

  18. Such a fashionable winter look. I love the metallic loafers with the cream outfit!

  19. i love love love the shoes and you are so beautiful!

  20. I love the fun touch the metallic shoes give to your outfit - I'm wearing metallic shoes today actually, although mine are flats! :) It's a nice little extra interest when you wear something shimmery! :)

    I like the winter whites of your outfit too - a nod to warmer temperatures but still cosy and practical for the cold!

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far! We are getting a lot of rain at the moment which is a welcome change after the heatwaves, haha!

  21. I am mentally and visually preparing for Spring too. This week for example I wore a lot of dresses and I think lots of light colors, light neutrals, white and pastels are next. Your new loafers, teddy coat and bag are all beautiful, chic and cozy!
