Spring Has Sprung

Friday, April 18, 2014

As soon as winter clears and warm weather sets in, I can't help but reach for my florals - layering is key! 
Layering a silky blouse underneath a casual jumper is a great way to add some pattern and color to an otherwise simple look. Not to mention the extra layer is perfect for spring's transitional weather. 
Nude heels instantly pull together any look.  
This is a great brunch outfit or something fun to wear while shopping. The flared skirt adds a spring to my step!

This is one of my favorite dresses because it's so versatile and can really work well in any season. In summer I love wearing it as is with some funky wedges and colorful jewelry. But for this time of year, I thought layering a springy blouse underneath was the best way to create a feminine and classy look that will keep me comfortable and warm. 

I've recently started experimenting with layering dresses and I love the creativity involved in creating a whole new look just by adding a shirt under or over a dress. It feels like my wardrobe suddenly got a whole lot bigger!
