Your Spring Style: Spring Transitions

April is my favorite month of the year. Not only is April my birthday month, but it's also the month that spring really kicks into gear. I love dressing for spring weather; usually it's cool enough to do light layers but not so cold that the coat-hat-gloves routine is necessary. As you can see from my spring capsule, not a lot of my winter wardrobe carried over into spring. (Peace out, thick sweaters! Enjoy your time in storage!)

However, there were a few things that I couldn't bear to sentence to basement-storage purgatory. My classics, for example, like jeans, a chambray shirt, and a jean jacket made the cut. As did this leopard blouse, because although it is long-sleeved, it's very light and won't add any bulk. I made it feel like spring by adding my favorite turquoise pencil skirt and gold wedge sandals.

  1. Light layers are the BEST. I feel like spring and fall are easiest to look put-together because there's just something about light layers. And I love the add of the pop of color for your leopard blouse... which reminds me I had actually put mine away for winter (too cold to wear it!) but it'll be perfect for now.

  2. I agree, and maybe that's why I like those seasons the best. And as much as I would love to have a huge closet large enough to hold all of my clothes at once, there's something to be said for pulling out something you put away for a season. It's like getting a "new" piece!

  12. Yay for April birthdays! Love your new capsule, I'm so excited for spring and bare legs and in my case - at least for the rest of April - light sweaters.

  17. Love the pencil skirt especially! Teal/turquoise is one of those colors that I think transitions really well between spring and autumn...though maybe in combination with slightly different pieces each season.

  18. Thank you! I agree about turquoise transitioning really well--it's one of my favorite colors (I painted my walls turquoise in my living room!) so I'm happy that I can wear it year-round.
