From Winter to Spring: How to Transition Your Wardrobe

Wow, it’s been awhile since we’ve had an outfit post on the blog! I was really not feelin’ the winter vibes for the past few months (I’d rather stay inside, ha!) but am inspired to start posting some more fashion-related content now that the weather has become a bit more bearable. I also just started working with a photographer, and I am so in love with the results! I love, love, love Richard helping me out with the blog, but working with a professional is great, especially since I’m not always super comfortable in front of the camera.

Anyways, today’s look is one of those which we shot a few weeks ago, and while I wasn’t thinking too hard when I put it together, I realized after checking out the photos that it’s kind of perfect for transitioning from winter to spring. SO, while I was originally just going to share the photos, inspiration always comes at the most unexpected times/places, and I’m also giving a few of my best tips for putting together transitional outfits as the weather gets warmer below. Hope they are helpful, and happy Easter weekend!

Rain Boots

Ask anyone, and they won’t hesitate to tell you how much I love rain boots. I have so many pairs, because they’re just so versatile. If it’s especially chilly, throw in a pair of fleece liners and rock them anyways. Then you don’t have to worry about ruining any of your other fave shoes during the muddy season! You can also opt for the liner-less look like I did in this outfit if it’s feeling warmer outside. Trust me, once you invest in one pair of rain boots, they’ll last you practically a lifetime (but you’ll probably want to buy more, because they’re awesome). I also love pairing my Hunters with dresses as the weather gets warmer. This creates a great playful look that’s still not baring it all when there’s a bit of windchill.

Prints

Spring is a great time to play around with different prints! I love pulling out some of my floral dresses, but you can also stick with simpler patterns like the checkered vest pictured and put your own spin on it.

Color

Pastels are an obvious choice for transitioning into spring, but that doesn’t mean you should forget about the other options. In this look, I chose to capture more of a winter vibe in terms of color and then balance that with the playful, springtime dress and rain boots. Don’t be afraid to mix it up and go with a non-traditional look!

Layers

Layering is a great strategy to tackle the fluctuating spring weather. Where I live, it’s always chilly in the morning and warm in the afternoon, so it’s great to have an item that’s easy to remove when it gets sunny outside. This is also a great way to incorporate patterns into your outfit with a fun vest or light jacket.
