One Outfit: Winter to Spring

The weather here in DC has been playing with all of our minds and closets.  On Saturday, it was a gorgeous 60 and sunny and we took a long family walk in just our shirtsleeves.  And then today it snowed.  I was more than a little bitter (although I started to forgive it just a little for at least being those big, gorgeous, soft snowflakes).

Since this time of year is so fickle, I like to think of outfits that can easily bridge the seasons.  Here's one example!



WINTER
 

Shirt: J.Crew Factory; Vest: Land's End Girls' Vest; Jeans: Forever 21; Scarf: H&M (similar); Purse: J.Crew (similar); Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington; Socks: Uniqlo; Shoes: Old Navy


For the winter version, I buttoned up the vest and added some decidedly cool-weather colors.  Burnt orange socks, chunky mustard scarf, booties, and a warm leather bag are perfect for colder temperatures.


SPRING


Shirt: J.Crew Factory; Vest: Land's End Girls' Vest; Jeans: Forever 21; Necklace: c/o ShopBlueBirdBride; Purse: J.Crew Factory (similar); Bracelet: Old Navy (similar); Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington; Shoes: Tretorn (similar)


To take the same outfit into springtime, I basically took the brighter, springier versions of all the colors.  Burnt orange became coral, mustard became sunshine yellow.I rolled up the sleeves, opened the vest, and added a bright, fun necklace.


How do you take your outfits from winter into spring?
