Now that we're officially into spring, I am just about over the moon. I'm definitely over this "winter." 2012 was okay, but the minute the clock struck midnight and the year flipped to 2013, everything went seemingly downhill. Especially the weather. It's quite annoying right about now. Besides that it's still very much chilly (if not completely freezing), the on and off rain is crazy!
Luckily, we're absolutely on our way towards sunnier days! If spring in NYC is anything like it was in DC, it will be just as unpredictable. Dressing for this kind of weather is just plain challenging. But I'm up for it. If only to finally get out of my boots and to be able to put away my tights until next season!
I've also exhausted every single weather appropriate outfit it seems like. But I think this is going to be my staple for the next few weeks. It's simple, easy to replicate, and looks pretty much put together. (Although it definitely won't take too much planning in the morning which is a wonderful bonus.)
The J. Crew popover is one of my favorite shirts. The white oxford is a wonderful little twist on the OCBD. Perfect to wear over skinny jeans. The AG Stevie Ankle jeans are amazing. The perfect length, the perfect fit, the perfect wash. I really hate spending money on jeans, but these truly do fit great. Throw on a trench (Target has a great selection of colors) and grab your simplest, chicest handbag.
Now the shoes... that's where this weather really proves to be an issue. One day, you have to just bite the bullet and wear Hunter Wellingtons. The next day, you can get away with just regular ballet flats.
We're getting closer (hopefully) to days when sandals will do just fine. Can we talk about how amazing these Sam Edelman wedges are??? I absolutely need them.
What is your go-to spring outfit going to be?
