Jump into Spring

05-07-15-Jump-Suit

Why not jump into spring with a jumpsuit? They are very hot right now, appearing everywhere from runways, red carpets, and to your fellow shoppers on the street. It’s a fashionable, acceptable onesie that you can wear after you turn 5. It’s an easy way to look elegantly pulled together while feeling comfortable and breezy. I’m on the hunt to find a good one to add to my closet.

Are you trying out the jumpsuit?

What Snow?

It’s hard to imagine my relief the first time I saw a whole block of sidewalk in Boston. I knew it existed underneath the mountains of snow and ice but seeing the glorious stretch was so satisfying. It meant spring was coming (even if it was still weeks away) and I could someday soon leave my apartment without gloves. The little act of leaving them in my purse was one of the best feelings.

This morning, I was finally able to put on shorts for the first time this year for a run. It was beautiful, balmy and I’m so happy the warmer weather has come in.

Tip of the Hat

Nod to Black

 

There’s something about a hat that can liven up an outfit. It makes a simple top and bottom pop with a flash of color. Plus it’s practical all year round!

I love wearing hats in the winter but struggle for ideas in the spring. Luckily, as the stores transition from winter to spring there is a ton of great inspiration out there.  I’ve keeping an eye out for ideas in which ones to add to my wardrobe. The winter sales also give you a chance to snag  a fun winter one to wear for the next couple weeks.

Spring Coats

Spring is one of my favorite coat seasons. Pale and bright colors start to bloom just like the flowers. They are a great way to show personality and spice up an outfit. Coats are one of those weaknesses of mine, and I can never say no to one that catches my heart. They are not as bad as my flip flop obsession but it’s a close second!

Kicking It

Spring is officially here and that means goodbye heavy jackets and hello vests! They are my go to for when I need a little more warmth and are flattering by skimming your curves. You can get them in every color and pattern to mix and match with any outfit.

They are best in the spring and fall months when you are looking to add layers. Choosing a thinner vest lets you avoid too much bulk and then you can add a heaver sweater or button down underneath. I have to admit I have quite a few!
