Spring Fling

Spring is such a beautiful time of year; the flowers are blooming, the weather is cool and breezy, and our bodies can finally be freed from the shackles of bulky wool sweaters, thick socks, and unflattering coats.  When I saw the skirt, featured below, I immediately thought of how chic this would look for a spring daytime event. 
The skirt is the attention-getter of the outfit, and I would allow the focus to remain there by pairing it with a neutral button-down blouse (a tie-neck blouse would look equally gorgeous).  If you're going to wear a button-down, though, keep it fresh by unbuttoning it to a reasonable level - too high and you'll ruin the effortless feel of the outfit.  Regarding the shoes - I am really, really pining for a pair of d'orsay pumps and this Sam Edelman pair is exactly what I've been looking for.  Trend has moved away from pointed-toe pumps to more rounded-toe designs, but a d'orsay pump will always be in style.
