Spring? Where did you go?

Last week, Spring had sprung. We were experiencing 80 degree temps and oodles of sunshine in the Northeast and it.was.glorious. Just as I was about to bust my spring and summer clothes out of storage, Mother Nature came along and pulled the rug out from under me. Now, we are experiencing 40 degree temperatures and wind. Not so glorious. I shouldn't complain. It was lovely while it lasted. Now I face the dilemma that I do every year: dressing for cooler weather when the calendar indicates that I should be dressing for Spring.  Here are a few pieces that can help you navigate through this iffy-weather time of the year: 

the trench coat.



I found this bad boy at Forever last week and wanted it SO badly. Of course, they did not have my size, or it would be hanging in my closet right meow. Seriously though, you guys. It's super cute and does NOT look cheap. Only $37.80! And if you're not feeling the yellow, it also comes in a reddish orange color.

the lightweight scarf.

 

I love lightweight scarves because you can sport them year round. They're great for keeping warm on a cool Spring day without looking too bundle some. Both of these are from Madewell simply because I'm obsessed with all of their scarves. Check it out and obsess with me, please.

bright skinnies.

Unless you're living under a rock, you've probably seen the bright skinny jeans everywhere so I won't bore you with an explanation for this one. I think we can all just agree that they're awesome for Spring and we should wear them. Kapeesh?


colorful ballet flats.

All shoes can be found on nordstrom.com
Sandals can be a little harsh on the footsies when temps are below 60*. Colorful flats will keep those toes warm while still incorporating the fresh spring colors into your wardrobe. Btw, if you follow me you'll see that the vast majority of shoes I blog about are flats. It's because I'm 5'10" and prefer not to make myself any taller :)


What are your tips for dressing for the calendar AND the weather? I'd love to know! :)




xoxo,



me

This weather is almost hateful! Friday, I wore such breezy light fabrics, a few days later, I'm bundling up yet again in layers and scarves! What's the deal, Mother Nature?

The bright yellow coat is so Spring appropriate & will definitely come in handy during these days, what with nature being so indecisive! The scarves are also a great feature! They're practical in keeping you relatively warm while still decorating your neck with something other than a piece of jewelry! Love the post, Morgan!

Living in Texas, I seriously never know what the temp will be, so one day it's a skirt and tank, the next jeans and a scarf. I'm dying to get my hand on more colored skinnies, but they keep selling out before I get to them. Blargh.

I've resorted to leggings under a maxi. Maxi skirt/dress that is... xoShelly

That trench coat is perfect for spring! I have been looking for a nude one in my local thrift stores for a while now. I also just bought a pair of red pants and now I am obsessed with colored pants. Thanks for sharing!
