With the change of weather for a bit warmer temps, I find myself wanting to bring some spring and cheer in with my outfits, but not go full-on summer florals just yet.  How I do that, is by carefully mixing in layers, because goodness knows the weather fluctuates like crazy until it’s scorching hot in the summer!  

My favorite spring layering pieces include: cropped jeans with a raw hem (on CRAZY sale right now…50% off!) that hint at warmer weather ahead.  This striped mens-wear inspired shirt (sold out, but 1 left here and a similar one here).  I’ve always been a huge fan of blue & white anything, and that of course extends through my closet with my #1 wardrobe staple.  And while blue and white stripes can often scream summer, they’re balanced out here by an army green cargo jacket (mine is old, but here’s another one I want from J.Crew).  I really just love transitioning into spring with a button down, because if it gets a little too warm, I simply unbutton another button and roll up my sleeves…making it feel very easy and carefree.  

To accessorize, I grabbed a blue and white floral purse that brings just the right amount of femininity to, what would otherwise be, considered a tomboy outfit, with hints at spring.  And these Chanel flats (similar pre-owned here, and more flats linked below…I especially love these by Vince).  The flats are a splurge, but they’re the most comfortable shoes I own.  Nothing is worse than buying a new pair of flats, only to have them tear up your feet and give you blisters for days.  Because of this, I fully advocate investing in quality shoes like these that you’ll have for years.  And I personally splurge on accessories more than clothes; you’re always the same size in accessories!  

Tell me friends, what pieces are you most looking forward to pulling out this spring?  Truly, MKR

  • Very cute outfi, I love those jeans! I received an amazing mini- dress from my husband as a Christmas gift, it’s a 70’s paisley pattern in a purple/mauve colour palette. It’s got a great ‘spring’ vibe & I’ve been looking forward for the weather to warm up so I can wear it out to dinner!
