Happy first day of spring!! I don’t know about you, but this time every year I just feel like I’ve made it. I’ve survived another winter. Probably a bit melodramatic, but that’s how I roll.
Even though spring is officially here, everyone in Utah knows that doesn’t mean we get to put away our cold-weather clothing just yet. The next couple of months can be a whirlwind of bipolar weather. So transitional style is a must. Here are three ways we survive this confused season.
Jen – A punch of color
When it comes to my wardrobe, I’ve got a serious aversion to color. My closet is full of white, black, and grey everything – so when spring and summer fashions hit, I feel a bit lost amidst the sea of color, prints, and florals. This persimmon midi pencil skirt is the perfect compromise for a monochrome gal like myself – the red-orange is universally flattering and it pairs perfectly with my all-solid basics. I plan to pair it with a slouchy grey tank and my trusty leopard-print sandals (a new neutral, if you ask me) when it finally decides to stay warm. In the meantime, I’ll toss on this lightweight bomber jacket for those chilly mornings and nights.
Emily – Rainboots FTW
Spring is always a little bit wetter than I like. If it isn’t snowing, it’s raining. It doesn’t matter how hard I will the weather to dry up so I can finally break out my summertime flats, I am plagued with puddles in the spring. Luckily, I love my rainboots and they look fantastic with my springtime dresses. And just in case the morning is a little chilly, I have an army-style casual jacket protects me from the cold. All I have to do is put my hair in a top bun and I’m ready to take on the world, puddles and all.
Rebecca – Sheer for life
Sheer has become one of those trends that, once its time is over, I’m going to be so sad to see it go. I cannot get enough sheer. And it’s much easier to enjoy in warmer weather. But that’s not going to stop me in the meantime. For now, I’ll be pairing my sheer blouses with my favorite boyfriend jeans, a simple blazer (I’m a blazer addict and proud of it) and, until it’s warm enough for my toes to come out of hiding, a classic pair of heels.
