Its that time of year where winter's freezing grasp is slowly loosening, and the days are getting longer once again. The sun is reappearing and snow is starting to melt. However, this odd transitional weather can be difficult to dress for - especially if you're a fashionista! How can we start wearing spring items without freezing?
I'm collaborating with August Wrinkle to show you three ways to wear spring items while still compromising with the chill that's in the air. This first look is the strongest, spring-themed outfit I created, and I wanted to kick start this 3-part series with it! Its all centered around this amazing teal, bird print kimono. Easiest way to make something more spring-like? Adding more color! By layering this kimono over a neutral top and some mint skinnies, this outfit instantly got warmed up. I was lucky enough that Too Sexy Store had also sent me some cute, minty earrings as well. Perfect timing! And instead of going with black boots, I chose my taupe Litas to create an overall lighter effect. Plus, a bright floral bag? Instantly a spring-appropriate theme! I even whipped out a top knot, one of my favorite ways to wear my hair once it starts getting hot out.
How do you transition to spring?
Say it with me: "Awwwwww!"
They always sit right across from CG and I, and one day, the older lady nudged her husband and commented loudly, "Notice how he always sits next to the cute one?"
She was referencing CG of course, who had just plopped down into the seat next to me.
He just smiled and laughed, "That's what I do."
I rolled my eyes in a teasing way and informed them he was also in Psychology with me.
CG: "Yeah, and you sit next to me in that class."
Me: "I do, only because you're the one who moved closer."
CG: "I don't think so, pretty sure it was you who crept over."
Me: "Haha, yeah, I think we're remembering this differently!"
Ah, banter. Gotta love it.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”
