"Shawl"y Spring is almost here...

Shawl (Burberry); Top (Steinmart); Pants (Joseph Ribkoff, The Secret Ingredient); David Yurman smoky quartz ring (G. Thrapp Jewelers); Watch (Tag Heuer, G. Thrapp Jewelers Estate Collection); Burgundy suede boots (Diba, Zappos)
I'm ready to put my Winter coats away for the season, though I'd happily wear boots all year long if it didn't look silly. It's still pretty chilly in Central Indiana, though, so even if the heavy wool coat goes to the back of the closet, layers of warmth are still required for this cold-blooded girl. And we've still got a few boot days left, too!
Leopard design tortoise glasses (William Morris, Revolution Eyes); Earrings (Gordmans); Smoky quartz, garnet and sterling silver necklace from India (Ross Simons)
An oversized scarf or shawl makes a great seasonal transition piece in the Spring and Fall. I've tried wearing this lightweight but voluminous Burberry classic check shawl multiple ways. But, I've found I like it best when I secure it with a belt. This keeps it from slipping off my shoulders and needing to be constantly rearranged. It also creates a more intentional looking style choice, as opposed to looking like a blanket I've just grabbed to keep warm. What are your key seasonal transition pieces?
Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
