How to Transition Outfits from Winter to SpringWednesday, April 13, 2016
In the meantime, we are tired of the heavy blacks and oxbloods of winter. We see pastel petals and soft new growth, and it makes us itch for a change. How can we still dress warmly and still feel like spring is in the air? The answers are rather simple.
Layer, layer, layer. I know fall is traditionally the season of layering, but in spring it's arguably more important, at least in Kentucky. Our springs have been particularly chilly, while fall has proven rather warm over the years.
Because I want to feel soft and delicate like the blooms on the trees, I chose to pair my light blue sweater with my white slip. Ready to shed my traditional black tights, I changed them out for my ballet tights - pink like the petals outside my window, soft and yet warm. With a touch of grey socks and knee high boots, I am warm enough for a 50 degree day, but still feel like a new life is free to surge forth.
