Mixing seasons can be hard, but it’s a fact of life as the weather will inevitably change and fashion trends will be there, right along side, for the ride.  Now, I’m not saying anything I am doing here is new, socks with sandals dates back to most of our kinder years, BUT it’s a nice little switch up while the seasons make their transitions which makes it feel new.  I mean, it was a good like… I don’t know… four months ago that we were in fall transition and socks and sandals were rearing their ugly (yes, it’s kind of an ugly pairing), little heads.  So yes, four months later it does feel new and exciting when it’s something that has been taken from you, like cold weather seems to do with not only our sandals, but everyone’s soul.  That may or may not be a slight exaggeration…

Any way, it’s time to start thinking about spring and how to merge cold and warm weather pieces into one seamless set of outfits.  I like the idea of marshmallow-y sweaters and longer shorts, like I talked about in The long and short of it, but the outfit above is also a good option.  Pair shorts of a more sturdy fabric, also known as leather, with a wool sweater to keep yourself warm.  Been craving summer days filled with platform sandals and sun kissed legs?  Throw on your favorite sandals with a cute pair of socks to match your sweater!  As far as the sun kissed legs go, I can’t really help you with that.  Sorry dudes!  I do hope though that you can fulfill your craving for spring trends with your version of this outfit, maybe with a leather skirt instead?  Or be brave and pull out your daisy dukes!  Just be prepared for some crazy side eye as you walk down the street.  Unless you are here in LA, in that case wearing a wool sweater will get you said side eye as it’s gotten into the 80s in the last few days.  I LOVE LA. :)
