Yup, it’s still cold here in NC and it doesn’t look like it’s gonna let up anytime soon. That doesn’t mean your outfits have to be a drag. Usually around this time I’m just about over winter and winter clothing but this year I’ve got some go to looks that have been helping make it through these last few brutal months of the winter season. So today I’ll share 5 outfit ideas to get you through to spring.
MINI SKIRTS AND TIGHTS
Yes, I’ve been sporting this look all winter and will continue to do so till further notice, why, because it’s cute and stylish. Lately, I’ve been wear more floral skirts to help transition my wardrobe to a more spring look. The tights and panty hose are just there because it’s too early to go bare leg. If you’re looking for something extra funky, I suggests doing a colorful or printed tight. Perhaps some heart tights for Valentines day.
As you can see, I’m wear more of mauve, palish pink colored sweater, a great transition into spring but still very appropriate for winter being that it’s a sweater. Simple switches from winter bold greens and blues to soft blushes and subtle pastels will ease your bored and get you in spring mindset.
I’m no make-up expert, but the darker lip colors and festive eyeshadows have officially been laid to rest for the season and I’m gradually switching over to bold reds, soft pinks, browns, nudes and of course clear. These are spring colors for sure and sure to get you in a spring state of mind. By the way, the lippy I’m rocking in this post is Central Perk by Oui Fresh, the perfect winter spring transition color.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, floral is a year around type of deal and it’s all in the way you style it. I love mixing prints and am quick to include a floral print in my everyday looks if it makes sense. darker florals are probably your go-to for this time of year, but again, a great way to get you in that spring state of mind. If you’re not really a fan of floral, try a floral scarf or floral print shoes or do what I did in Hawaii and add a cute flower in your hair.
For those saying kimonos and kimono style tops and jumpsuits are played out got it all WRONG. This is the ultimate spring look and this style looks good on almost all body types because it accentuates the collar-bone, covers up just enough for a work setting, but can still be super sleek and sexy in fun prints, and silky or satiny fabrics. I have several kimono cover ups that definitely add some flare to a boring winter outfit, but still give me that feeling of spring.
I hope these ideas were super helpful. I’ll be back for another Hawaii update this Thursday.
Till next time.
