STYLE GURU STYLE: From Winter to Spring

Spring is finally here and the weather is finally showing it! As I assume I am speaking for most of us Fashionistas, I have been beyond excited to be able walk to class lately without having to wear a parka and big chunky snow boots. The only downside of the weather is that in the morning it is still a big chilly, and by noon it can be up to 80 degrees. I can’t help but jump straight into wearing my new, more colorful spring clothes. I usually am able to layer by throwing on a leather or jean jacket in the morning. Carrying a piece from your winter wardrobe, the leather jacket, into the spring makes the transition much more casual. I personally can never jump straight into wearing shorts and tank tops.

I thought this outfit was the perfect no-fail season transitioning outfit. The eyelet lace top is a statement piece that can easily carry the outfit without being too overbearing. The bell sleeves with ties is my favorite accent. The two-tone jeans are a trend that I have been loving! I bought these not thinking I would wear them often, but I’ve gotten so much wear out of them. My favorite part of the ensemble is the lace-up blue flats. They add a perfect amount of color for the beginning of spring, and as a bonus they are extremely comfortable. I kept the accessorizing to a minimum with just a few rings.

I wore this out for a girl’s night and dinner with a few my friends. It was casual, but I feel as though this outfit could be easily more dressed up with a pair of heeled booties and a fun handbag. Just as it could be dressed up, it can also be dressed down. Throw on a pair of sneakers, grab your backpack, and you are good to go to class! I can’t wait to put together more colorful, fun outfits for this season!
