We’re Just Going Through a Transition

From my last post, you can tell I’m more than ready for Spring. The trouble is….it’s still in the low 40’s here. That makes it a little difficult to wear those cute rompers and sleeveless floral dresses.

There’s nothing more uncomfortable than having your legs freeze, but on the same note, you’re tired of wearing heavy sweaters and cords. What’s the solution? For me, it’s layering for warmer afternoon temperatures and wearing florals and prints in bolder colors and saving the lightweight fabrics and pastels for later in the Spring.

Here are some great transitional pieces to get you through this last bit of Winter.

Laundry by Shelli Segal Bell Sleeve Eyelet Shift Dress

Love the sleeves on this dress! Break the old fashion rules of not being able to mix navy and black, and pair this with black tights. Flats will complete a day look, and throw on some chunky heels for nighttime.

Milly 'Garden' Batik Print Silk Dupioni Dress

Wow! How many seasons could you wear this dress?

Pair it with bittersweet Spanx tights and brown booties.

Throw on a cute cardigan, and here’s an outfit you can wear Spring or Fall. I love pink with dark brown!

J Crew Cashmere V-Neck Cardigan

Trina Turk 'Botanical' Strapless Dress

Trina Turk “Botanical” Strapless Dress

Now this is my kind of floral! I like that the flowers are tempered with the black background. I can’t wear light, girly florals. I like mine bold and with a dark background. Again, this is another opportunity to bust out some black tights until it’s warmer.


Arden B Charm Paisley Print Ruffle Dress

I am soooo in love with this dress. It has the most wonderful colors and it’s so versatile. For a more casual look, I’d pair this with a denim jacket and tall tan boots with bare legs. To make it more feminine, I’d wear a cardigan and these:

Vince Camuto “Fallon”

or these:

Born “Hydrangea”

The best part about these??? They’re made by Born, so you know they’re going to be good for Mom feet comfortable. Love the large flowers and cork.

Matty M Dolman Jumpsuit

This lightweight jumpsuit offers a lot of options. Gotta love the price….it’s only $26.70!

Add bright accessories like this:

Anthropologie “Flora-In-Focus” Necklace

or something like this

Diane Von Furstenberg “Animal Spot Gauze Scarf”

Have a great weekend!


  1. I LOVE everything in this post...especially the Laundry dress. I have a shower to go to this month and I am going through the same dilema becasue its not quite spring yet but I dont want to rock anything to wintery. Thanks for your suggestions :-)

  2. This time of year in Toronto is always can be warm at noon and freezing at 5pm - yesterday I went out in a sweater with a furry hoodie and flats with no socks because I am so sick of wearing boots!
