Back in the Village

I’ve been slowly swapping out my winter coats for light spring jackets and vests like this one.  It feels so good to ditch the heavy layers!  I picked up these booties over the weekend and haven’t taken them off since. I can honestly say they’re the perfect tan bootie. The heel isn’t too high which makes them comfortable enough to wear all day. These are another great bootie (also available in black.)
