Fresh Friday // Craving Spring

It’s that time of year where thoughts of spring start floating in my brain, but the realities of winter will keep me bundled up for a few more weeks.  So I’ve been experimenting with putting some seasonal bounce into my cozy winter wardrobe – here are a few ideas I’ve come up with:

Layer a cute summer dress over a longer wool one; cozify it with a sweater, tights and boots.

(Necklace: Premier Designs, Sweater: American Eagle, Chevron Dress: Target, Grey Dress: Gap, Tights: Target, Boots: Zara)

Layer cozy cords in a bright fun color with a thick winter sweater and a light, springy plaid top and some snow-safe sneakers.

(Sweater: JCrew hand-me-up from sister, Shirt: American Eagle, Cords: Gap, Shoes: Converse)

I am definitely sick of winter weather, and I have a hunch I’m not the only one.  Hopefully this gives you some ideas to make March and April (those teasing temperature-indecisive months) a little more exciting, while still keeping nice and warm.

    Oh – we all wish for what we don’t have! Here in Sunny Gainesville it’s already in the 80s. I had very little chance to wear my boots this winter. And I love my boots…ReplyCancel
