Waiting for Warm Weather

This morning while opening all the windows in my home. I thought to myself, I’m so happy it is not 20 degrees outside right now. After this thought passed my mind, I remembered that typically this time of year I am usually trying to rush the season so that I can be comfortable outdoors in shorts and a tee shirt, which is my favorite weather.

Spring Jackets are my favorite.

It’s important to be thankful where we are right now, I mean the weather is not that bad. We can wear lightweight jackets and not freeze or overheat because it is hot outside. I love love love jackets, so this is the time to wear all those cute little spring jackets.

I love a great layer lol – with the weather still on the cooler side. It gives us a few weeks of wearing our layers without a jacket. Hello puffer vest, and flannel!

Don’t forget your rain boots.

Have you ever heard of “April showers bring May flowers?” That means we will get to have those chilly nights indoors because it may be raining. I don’t know about you, but I love a great raining afternoon. It’s a perfect time to snuggle in bed with a good movie. Oh, and I can’t forget it’s rain boot season.

Wearing All Black

I love jackets! They may be my favorite item of clothing. But this time of year when we are rushing the spring weather, I like to breakout my lighter jacket. I found this jacket back during the fall Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

When I saw this jacket I really loved it because it fit well with my style. Over the last couple of years I have really had a love for all black outfits. I love the way they make me feel. I love how an all black outfit is so chic and classy.

Of course, wearing the same color every day can get really boring really fast. One way I avoid boring black every day is by not wearing all black every single day. I love it but, a girl needs some variety. I also like to find that having items with embellishments helps keeps things from being so boring as well. These shoes again, some of my favorite this year helps makes the look more fun.

Spring Layers

Once the weather starts to warm of I get really excited about wearing my layers. Putting away my big bulky coats is like a summers dream come true. It’s really hard for me to not rush into wearing light spring jackets but I am really looking forward to it.

When you are moving into the warmer weather it’s tough not to throw on shorts and sandals. Take this time to wear some of the layers you have been wearing all winter to keep you warm. Just do it in a spring-like way.

Pro-Tip: Layers are you best friend. Typically when spring comes around we go through a few seasons in one day. In the morning you will be warm with all your layers. Throughout the day you can take your layers off and when the sun goes down you still have something you can throw on when it starts to cool off.

Here are the links, to what I am wearing in this post. Check it out and send me or tag me in your best spring looks.

Last week I shared with you how I like to wear items in my closet multiple ways, check out that post here. Fun fact I am actually wearing this shirt today.

I almost didn’t put up a post today, but I wanted to share something with you all today. So, bear with me and this short post. Nonetheless, here is another way to wear this shirt here and jacket here.  I wanted to share with you a few other ways you can style a simple shirt.

Spring Jackets

One of my favorite things about spring fashion is the jackets. I have always loved jackets, in my opinion, they just complete any outfit. They are also perfect when you have chilly moments throughout the day. Here in the DC area, I think we have finally entered into the spring season. Que, all the cute jackets.

If you are looking for the perfect jacket for spring think about the type of spring weather that will take place in your area. It rains a lot here in the spring, and some days it’s cold, some days hot. So I like to find jackets that can either be layered over a sweater on those cold days or can be worn over a simple shirt. I also like to wear a lightweight faux leather jacket as well. Whatever your style, any jacket would work as long as you’re warm.

Also, think about the color of your jacket. You want your jacket to go with a lot of your outfits. For me, I picked olive, in the warmer months I wear a lot of navy blue. Olive will also look great with white, black, and even yellow, some of my favorite colors to wear in the spring or summer.

I wanted to do this post to share with you, you can still look like a normal person just running out for a second and still be somewhat put together.

You guys, I can’t express how much I love thrifting.  You can seriously find some of the greatest pieces. I found this shirt a few weeks ago. It is from French Connection and I love French Connection. They have amazing items that always fit extremely well with my body type. This shirt is an absolute score for me.

A couple of months ago, I was dying to try Trunk Club.  I love the concept of getting a box of clothes sent to me. It’s like getting a surprise every month. In my second trunk delivery, these lovely pants were in the box and I had to keep them. They are comfortable and cute — my favorite combo! To top it off, these shoes are so much fun and they bring the green out in the shirt. I love this color and I’ve been dying to wear these shoes this season. I LOVE A GREAT SLIDE.

I think this may be my favorite addition to my spring wardrobe this year (so far). I tend to have a hard time finding spring or summer dresses that are long enough. I love this dress because it covers my arms.  Dresses on the shorter side with long sleeves adds balance to a dress. I also love the idea that this dress is casual simply because I love wearing sneakers with dresses. Comfort is always key 🙂

Easter is one of my favorite holidays, I start planning what I am going to wear pretty early, truthfully it very rarely works out because it is still to cold outside for a nice spring dress. As we all know Easter is not about what we wear but, for us to remember what our Lord did for us to have eternal life. Before getting to preachy- do you get dressed up and go to church or do you hang out with family and friends in a casual setting?

Today, I rounded up a few dresses I’ve shared in past post. If you are looking for inspiration on what to wear for Easter, these would be great look for Easter Sunday.
