Hello friend! As we are emerging out of winter, it’s time to start our wardrobe spring transition. While I do a similar transition with each change of season, winter to spring transition is my favorite! That’s because I love warmer weather and longer days of sunshine. So even though it’s a big task to change out my closet, I do so happily. Let me share a few key things I change in this transitional time.
Spring Transition With White Accessories
While I enjoy white jewelry, I tend to avoid wearing it in the winter. I just feel it is more of a summer item. I also do not mind segregating some items for certain seasons. It gives me something to look forward to with each change of season. It’s almost like getting something new! Also, white looks great on tanned skin.
Besides jewelry, I will also be bringing out my white pumps. Before last year, I had not worn white dress shoes since I was a kid. But after seeing how versatile they were on Caryl, I decided to give them a try. It turns out she was right, and I’ve been wearing them ever since!
Bring in Some Brights
While I will continue to wear pastels and soft shades from winter into Spring, I will also add some brighter colors. Bright aquas, pinks and yellows are the perfect spring colors. Case in point is this pretty bright pink dress. Its vibrant hues completely scream spring.
For the accessories in this outfit, I chose to wear my favorite floral pumps. Because the shoe has shades of blue, I then chose a blue clutch to complete the look. For the jewelry, I kept with my current obsession, the Trellis Lane bracelets (discount code “elsie25” still valid for 25% off).
Swap Out Textures
During winter, we were cacooning ourselves in woolen pieces and blanket scarves. But now that spring is here, it’s time to substitute those heavier textures with lighter ones. One of my favorite ones to bring out in spring is eyelet lace. Whether it is in a dress, skirt or top, eyelet lace is always a perfectly feminine warm weather texture! This pretty color-blocked dress is just perfect right now.
To further illustrate my first tip, I chose to wear my white accessories with this dress. What can I say, I am so ready for spring!
For the rest of my accessories I wanted to add both texture and pattern with my leopard print clutch. I also chose a small (but effective) pop of color in my earrings.
Update the Shoes
My last tip to prepare for spring transition is to replace your heavy winter boots with lighter shoes. That means bringing out my pretty flats and sandals. Besides what I already own, I am also eyeing a few key items. One is the wedge espadrille everyone is loving. The second is a cute perforated spring bootie. With these two items, my feet will be ready to welcome spring with style!
