WHAT TO WEAR: Stepping Into Spring

Ah, spring is upon us. Or so we thought—until Mother Nature decided to surprise us with the wonderful gift of a snowstorm in the ever-surprising land of northeastern Ohio.

The period between winter and spring may be the toughest period of the year for figuring out what to wear. You often get tired of the heavy dressing and want to wear something that reminds you of the sweet springtime, but you still need warmth for the occasional (or often) snowfall.

This Fashionista is wearing the perfect outfit for that tricky winter-to-spring transitional dressing. She is wearing a utility-style coat with colorful embroidery on both of the sleeves. She pairs it with a lightweight sweater which is a truly versatile piece when you are in between seasons.

She keeps the rest of her outfit toned down and neutral because her coat is the statement piece of her look. I love her pair of classic, skinny ripped blue jeans (every girl needs a pair) and her canvas boots that have a utilitarian feel.

She ties her look together with some super cute silver rings and a matching necklace. Everything is simplistic and understated in her look which brings a sense of freshness to her outfit. This is a smart way to dress after feeling a little drab from a long winter season.

Sometimes simple is the way to go when you are trying to figure out how to dress for in between seasons of the year. This Fashionista’s look is versatile and fresh. It is an ode to stepping into springtime and to the revival and renewal that comes along with this season—whether that be in terms of dress or any other aspect related to how we live.

Even if spring may not be upon us for quite some time in cold and snowy Ohio, we can still bring the positivity and open-mindedness of the season into our lives now through the simple way of how we dress.
