How To Smoothly Transition Into Spring

Spring is around the corner and I can’t wait because the weather is already starting to warm up and the days are slowly starting to get longer.

Thankfully, this was my first winter in California so I didn’t have to deal with the snow. However, there were still some cold and rainy days here in the bay area. So it’s been great being able to go outside in a t-shirt and a chunky knit cardigan in the middle of February.

So here is an outfit idea to help you transition into spring!

The Spring Transition


Last year, around this time I would have been wearing a fur coat, some leather gloves, and a hat. Also, I definitely wouldn’t be able to wear a pair of suede chelsea boots.

However, this year I’ve swapped out my shearling coats for this classic chunky knit cardigan from Jack Threads.

I’ve been wearing cardigans more often because they’re super versatile and they’re the perfect layering piece.



Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of over-sized clothing (and sweaters in particular) on the blogs and in stores and I’m sure it’s just one of the trends for 2017.

But for me, the focus will always be on wearing pieces that fit me well and compliment my body type. Because honestly, the last thing we need is to go backwards and start dressing like we are in the 90’s again.

Also, not only is this outfit ideal for more casual work environments but it’s also a great alternative to the typical all-red valentine’s day inspired looks that you all have been seeing everywhere.

Last but certainly not least, my interest in denim continues to grow and I’m already working on some new more content for Denim Week 2017!

I also picked up these raw selvedge denim jeans from Jack Threads and I couldn’t be more impressed with the quality. Not only do they fit great but they’re also way more affordable than some of the other raw denim jeans on the market.

Honestly, I’m just excited for those natural fades to start developing on the pockets, behind the knees, and on the thighs!
