Adding Color with Accessories and #SCAD

I've reached that point in this capsule wardrobe that I'm feeling SO DONE with these winter clothes. Yes, I was all about the neutrals in January and February, but all I can think about now is Spring! and Colors! and Warm! All the blacks and grays and navys are bringing me down. I've heard of SAD (seasonal affective disorder), but is there such a thing as SCAD (seasonal clothing affective disorder)? My winter clothes are making me gloomy. I think it would be a little presumptuous, however, to put them all away this soon. I imagine winter won't leave us without some sort of last hoorah.

Since I won't be pulling out my floral prints and sandals just yet, I'm going to have to rely on colorful accessories to help keep me from going mad from SCAD. It just so happens that I have a new necklace that's perfect for cheering up my winter clothes. This gorgeous turquoise necklace was made right here in KC by the fabulous Ngan of eNVe Designs. I'm all about this color right now, and I love that this is a unique necklace for all seasons.

How are you adding spring to your closet?

  1. SCAD is a great acronym for the feeling. Isn't it funny how in late summer, all we can think about is wearing corduroy and boots and now, all we want to do is kick them off. Great idea to "spring" it up with accessories. I still want my sandals though. The necklace is beautiful and looks so good with the black and white printed top.

  2. Thanks Megan! I know, I remember being SO excited to wear my boots and sweaters and you're right, now I am over them. I need a pedicure in the worst way, but then I'll be ready for sandals for sure!

  3. Yep, SCAD is real. I'm done - especially with the boots. Even having 4 pairs of ankle boots to rotate around doesn't prevent this, it turns out. I so love this outfit though - doesn't feel winter wardrobe at all when you put the fab blouse with a colored necklace and flats (plus bonus excellent pattern mix!).

  4. Thanks Anne! These shoes weren't originally in my winter capsule, but I added them so that I had another flats option other than leopard. But still, only two pairs will not be enough if the weather stays nice! If spring decides to stick around (which I hope it does but fear it won't) I may have to transition to spring a bit more quickly!

  8. Yes! I definitely have SCAD. I am having so much fun planning my spring capsule. The way I'm sprucing up the last of my winter clothes is by pulling out some pretty light scarves. I love your necklace too!
