How to bring spring colors into your end of winter wardrobe

 

Spring is coming! It’s not here yet, but it’s on it’s way. We are occasionally getting nice spring like weather days around here and I am ready for it. But, how to incorporate that almost-spring feel into your end of winter attire?

 

Spring style

 

Take those warmer weather days and just go for it!

 

Slate blue coat + rose gold accessories

 

Start bringing out your lighter jackets, short sleeve shirts, your shorter pants and wearing your shoes without socks.

 

Shades of blue

 

Lighten up the colors a bit. Add in your pastels.

 

White sweater, + jeans with pearls & a slate blue coat

 

Bring out your bright turquoise’s, pinks & yellows and mix and match with your winter wardrobe.

 

White fluffy sweater, blue coat, denim with pearls + rose gold accessories

 

Add a pop of color in an accessory like scarves, purses or shoes.

 

A perfect day for the park

 

Wear a coat in a lighter or brighter color.

 

Booty, booty!

 

It’s all in the details. Like these wonderful pastel pearls on these jeans.

 

Pearl details

 

Or rose gold sunglasses and simple pastel pink pearl earrings.

 

Pink pearl earrings, silver pearl bun band, rose gold sunglasses
