Around this time of year, as the days get a bit longer and we have some intermittent warm days, I am eager to wear spring clothes. Yet, the chilly days persist. During this wardrobe and weather transition phase, the key is to find a happy medium and navigate between the two seasons. That means infusing some spring items into daily looks yet remaining practical. Consider the following items during the winter/spring transition:
ONE // A White Top. White tops are classic and always great for styling in multiple ways. I love a nice white top that can be dressed up or down with a blazer or statement earrings or necklace. This particular white top is especially nice because it is asymmetric which adds interest and sophistication, as well as flashes a bit of skin (i.e. spring style) yet is not too revealing. One could cover up and make this outfit a bit more conservative with a navy or houndstooth print blazer but this is also the perfect outfit to wear out to daytime event, happy hour, or early evening gathering.
TWO // The Pencil Skirt. I have always been a fan of the pencil skirt for work or play. Pencil skirts are classic, slimming, feminine, but not too revealing. They also pair well with various footwear, such as a nice heel or over-the-knee boot. I wear pencil skirts year round because of their versatility. Here, I paired this pencil skirt with my favorite over-the-knee boots (i.e. winter style) to keep my legs cozy. Despite the sun being out, the temps were chilly. I also do not shy away from pairing black and blue though some may consider it a fashion faux pas. Here, my boots are black suede and my skirt is navy.
THREE // Statement Items (earrings, necklaces, sunglasses, handbag or clutch). Statement items are always great for dressing an outfit up or down and making an outfit distinguishable. My earrings come in multiple colors and are one of my go-to pairs for adding a touch of glam to an outfit. The white in my earrings, glasses, and clutch are also a nice, fresh nod to spring/summer. My blush pink check print scarf also adds a pop of color and is perfect for draping over my shoulders.
As an aside, every photo has its own story. These are no different. A huge windstorm was whipping through the area as we took these photos. We only stepped outside briefly a few times for fear that a tree branch would come crashing down upon us. Nonetheless, the sky was a vibrant blue and the sun kept peeking out.
