Though March was a record-breaking month across the country as far as temperatures were concerned, things have started to cool a bit in this end-of-April start-of-May week. It’s drizzling and rather dismal in New York City at the moment, which has forced our denim shorts and sandals back into the closet for the time being.
What we’re experiencing now is the kind of spring weather that’s more typical to the season – breezes, chills and a bit of rain. These transitional weather days can make for a puzzling wardrobe situation, so take a cue from these bloggers on how to layer up without loosing that hopeful, blooming mood.
Alicia of Cheetah Is The New Black (can you tell she’s one of my favorites) lives upstate, so she’s no stranger to cooler temps in late spring. She sports her floral Current / Elliott jeans with a soft beanie and a cool vest layered over a breezy blouse.
One of my new favorite bloggers, Samantha of Could I Have That stays warm-ish with white-on-white layers and suede pumps that nod to a preppier style (which I love).
The name of the game this time of year is balance. For me, that means I tend to layer more up top when it’s colder, but still let me ankles breathe. There’s something about putting on a pair of knee-high boots in May that just doesn’t feel right to me.
How do you style up your denim on chillier spring days?
