Anyone else excited that Spring is getting so close and so fast? You wouldn’t know it around here with all the snow that keeps falling, but we are almost there friends.
As much as I have loved spending more time at home saving money on chai teas, cooking most of my meals, working remotely and learning to relax as a form of self-care…I am genuinely looking forward to just being outdoors. I can’t wait to pull the roof deck back together again, plant flowers with my Mother-in-Law, and grill out with the mister. Add more humans to that. equation and it’s going to be the perfect season!
So what do you do with that itch to start transitioning your closet but its still ‘hellah cold‘ outside? You slowly transition into a hybrid style of both seasons of course!
1 // If you are ready for some lighter layers, switch from chunky knit sweaters to a lighter material. Moving from a turtleneck, mockneck or cowl to a boat neck will also help you feel much lighter and less bundled up.
2 // Tired of pants and jeans? (or sweatpants?) Change out the bottoms to a longer skirt that goes past your knee to keep that ‘warm’ look and feel. If you have fabrics that lean a little thicker at this time like this corduroy skirt – thats a great option to pull out of your closet.
3 // Instead of pumps or strappy sandals for the look, opt for knee high boots or booties to keep your feet and legs warm. Not only will it compliment the skirt length and leave less skin exposed to the cold temperatures, you are also able to sneak on socks inside the shoes too. Its sneaky chic!
4 // Add a scarf or a fun accessory that also adds a layer to the look. I didn’t do it here but I typically pack a knit headband that keeps my ears warm or a great scarf around the neck.
You can totally rock these steps for the next few weeks to get one more use out of all your winter gear. When you’re officially ready for the season, start folding in your favorite spring prints and colors to welcome the season with open arms.
We are nearly there! ❤
