Happy Friday! Not only is it the end of the week, but we're also nearing the end of the month– which means that April is almost here! April, naturally my favorite month in the first half of the year due to my birthday, is also the real start of spring. March is always some weird wintry-spring mix and you never know what to expect. April, for the most part, is pretty spring-like. Temperatures start rising, the ground turns green again, and the sun starts to make more frequent appearances. But, there is still a great deal of rain, overcasts, and wind to make this month still a little too chilly to wear your full on spring ensembles.
So what's a fashionista to do when she so badly wants to wear her new spring sandals? In March and April, you really need to go for more of a transitional look, rather than full out spring. The best way to do this "spring trans style" without having to buy anything new is to pick some of your favorite fall/winter pieces that are pretty neutral in color and pair these back to your spring wardrobe. It's really a game of mix and match. Put a breezy spring top, with skinny jeans and riding boots. Keep it basic in a chambray/denim outfit that works across all seasons, but pop the color with a fun scarf and cute tennies. Or you can go the route I often take, and wear your favorite fall sweater with some spring-friendly light wash jeans and spring sandals. Just make sure to mix your coverage (if you go with shorts, wear long sleeves, and vice versa), play with different fabrics, and ensure your fashion has a nod to functionality– and you'll be easy, breezy, spring trans ready!
