If you live in Michigan like me, spring time can be a dreadful season when it comes to fashion. One day it’s 35 and raining, and the next day is sunny and 65. It can be overwhelming keeping up with such a variety of clothes in my closet. Fluffy sweaters on hand for the cold days and miniskirts ready for the warm ones. However, I’m a firm believer that if you keep your pastel pieces and open-toed sandals toward the front of our closets, the weather gods will indeed be on our side.
With that being said, here is my ideal spring look that should be front and center in every Fashionista’s closet. This outfit has the cutest key essentials of spring, am I right? Floral patterns, pastel colors, and tulle (lots and lots of tulle.) The floral shirt is eye-catching and elegant, while the tulle skirt is fun and sassy! However, an important part of making this look work is the length extensions of each piece. The high neck and slightly longer sleeve makes this top appropriate for things like Easter brunch or dinner with the family. It also balances out the long tulle skirt very nicely. The skirt is by far my favorite piece on this Fashionista. It reminds me of something Carrie Bradshaw would wear, and It flows through the cool breeze so beautifully. She easily pulled this look all together with brown, leather-strapped wedges and accessories. The dark accents simply balance out the bright pastels.
Sometimes Michigan doesn’t allow for much spring time action, and with the calendar slowly nearing May us, Fashionistas are crossing our fingers for consistent sandal weather!
