Springing Up Spring

Springing Up Spring

 

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m sure ready for Spring to get here. Inevitably, the weather warm-up means challenging wardrobe decisions. It sometimes takes a lot of effort to resist the urge to dress in anything that says “It’s warm outside!” I am a natural freeze baby, so I am one of those people that carries a sweater in my purse at all times…even when it’s an 85 degree July day (air conditioning, people!) My cool blood temp is probably also what reminds me to still wear long sleeves, closed toed shoes, or layers when the weather starts to break in the Spring because I know that if I get too warm-weather excited, I’ll regret it within the next couple days when I wake up with an “I told you so” cold.
 Above, I put together what I would consider to be a pre-Spring appropriate outfit. It brings out those expected petal shades, but the long sleeves, jeans, and booties still keep in the heat for when the sun goes down and the air turns cool again.

Springing into Spring

Springing into Spring

Every single Spring season I find myself gravitating toward yellow. I just think it’s a really great Spring statement color. So, while playing around on Polyvore, I chose to make a ‘work wear’ set around this lovely yellow dress by John Lewis. Since it’s still a little cool this time of year (at least on this side of the country ;p) I would definitely pair it with a little leather jacket, especially white because it’s definitely more of a Spring appropriate color for a leather jacket. The hint of a third color comes in with the greyish blue color blocked purse. Shades of blue and yellow pair well together. And of course, I have to add a little whimsy to the whole ensemble with the vintage daisy bracelet and flower shaped earrings ;)
