ONE OUTFIT STYLED FOR NOW & LATER
We are all getting sick and tired of our winter clothes, right? I know I can’t be the only one…even cashmere is losing its lustre (well maybe not, that would be ludicrous). To add to our spring daydreaming the stores are tempting us with bright bold prints, flirty dresses and cropped pants…so today we are talking transitional dressing. How to incorporate new spring pieces into your current winter wardrobe to keep it fresh and interesting, the key is strategic layering depending on the varying temps.
Style Tip: If you are out and about shopping and see something you absolutely love, buy it…stat! Some of these items will sell out and not be re-stocked when the temps start to rise.
I feel in love with these ‘Sloan’ pants from Banana Republic, I adore the bold print and colour combination. These are a spring/summer cropped pant and I will show you how to wear them now and later into the warmer months.
For now, I turned to my trusty black cashmere turtleneck and leather cape jacket (last seen here) and some classic knee high blacker leather boots to keep those ankles warm. I was actually surprised at the versatility of these pants.
For the later look, I lost the layers and let my ankles out to play. I switched the blacks for creams…imagine I have a summer glow. I love this raw edge cream top and this pearl necklace has a cool edge mixed with silver chain and spikes. My new Kate Spade sunnies complete the light and airy feel. I was so happy to put on these gorgeous sandals if even for a few minutes…they are Sergio Rossi and now they are back in my closet impatiently waiting to come out and play in the summer.
I hope this post inspires you to view your spring wardrobe in a new and interesting way…it will help lift your winter wardrobe blues.
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it so much…muah!
