So it's spring, right? Sometimes, I think Virginia didn't get the memo. Remember a few weeks ago when we got that snow storm?!? LOL.
I don't recommend actually wearing a tutu out in the snow for long. Of course it was cold, but I also wanted a tutu photo in the snow...don't ask. So, I guess that's one good thing that came from such a late season snow storm. I'm good now, ok mother nature?!? Let's move on. Anyway, here in Virginia, the weather in March and April can really ping pong between warm and cold. It is very unpredictable. So, I thought that I would talk about some easy things to do with outfits to accommodate the swings in temps.
Long dresses and skirts are prefect for chilly mornings (and for those days when you don't want to shave...am I right?!?). Layer it with a jean jacket, that way if it warms up, it's easy to adjust accordingly.
Jean jackets or light weight jackets
As I said above, they are versatile and are leasy to layer over top of almost everything. Look for fitted jackets in light weight fabrics. My jean jacket here is by H&M, and the blue one is from Nicole Miller. Both are second hand.
Tie them over a dress for an extra layer. Wear them open with leggings...so many options. Roll your sleeves up to make it more casual. I love a good medium-light wash chambray for spring. This one that I am wearing is Buffalo by David Bitton.
Leggings under dresses
Right about now, I am SO TIRED of wearing tights. Mostly because I only have a few pairs of shoes that I like to wear with tights, and it gets rather boring. Try putting leggings on under your dresses so that you can wear shoes that don't work with tights (open toed, different colored, etc).
Sometimes the weather changes like overnight. So, I try to have a few outfits planned that can work with either jeans or shorts. That way, if the weather at bedtime says 75 degrees tomorrow but you wake up and Mother Nature said "ha, just kidding" you are still prepared. Take that, Mother Nature.
So while we wait for the warmer weather to FINALLY stay, I hope these few ideas can help you stay ahead of the weather game. If you need me... I will put my lucky floral shoes on and wait for the leaves to appear. Someone send wine...and coffee...and my allergy meds. LOL.
