Searching for Spring in Your Winter Wardrobe

The ice is thawing and the snow at times turns to rain – have begun hoping for spring. February has officially concluded to provide us with a bright and hopeful March – however the temperature doesn’t seem to quite match our enthusiasm. At least not yet.

Until the time when we can truly don full-fledged spring attire, we can at least put a little spring into our warm-weather wardrobe. The easiest way to add that color of life is to add that little bit of color! I love wearing my flowery spring skirts with a blazer and booties for an adorable tween-season look.

The blazer is definitely the easiest addition to a spring ensemble to add the layer of protection from the wintry winds. Plus it adds a bit of class versus the average cardigan.

Going the other route, you may want to hang up all of your dark-colored dresses to hibernate during the summer, but tie a bright-colored ribbon or belt around your waist or add a bright pair of shoes and you just transformed your winter garb into spring style!

Most of us have become experts at layering over the years. We may not don leggings or cashmere hose now that the seasons have turned. However, we may wear knee-high socks with our pumps and a trench with our light-colored mini to survive the month and a half transition between the turtlenecks and the sleeveless frocks. We all strive to maintain the spring in our step during the tail end of winter, however that doesn’t mean our clothing can’t help us along the way!
