If you’re anything like me, you’ve been over dressing for winter for about 3 weeks now. I went to Arizona early in February and the beautiful warm weather really got me dreading the wintery weather in New York. So after coming back from that trip, I was inspired to start prepping for spring and dressing in a way that was reflective of spring, without feeling cold in the 30 degree weather. Keep on reading to see what I came up with! I’ll also make sure to link as many items as possible below!
I got this pretty ruffled wrap dress from Target a few years ago and one of my favorite parts about this dress is the skirt! So in order to make this outfit a little bit more wintery, I decided to layer this plain black sweater from Urban Outfitters over top. This is one of my favorite ways to style my spring/summer dresses for the winter so that you don’t necessarily have to put them away for the season (especially if you practice minimalism). I paired it with my favorite Sam Edelman Hia boots and thought it was a perfect look. The best part about this look is that throwing a nice coat over top will only elevate this look, instead of hiding it!
You guys know I’ve been obsessed with these half zip sweaters all winter, so I’m making sure to transition them into the spring time too. I got this half zip sweater from Abercrombie and it even comes in 2 colors and all the sizes are still available! I threw a white turtleneck under for some extra warmth and paired that with my tan slouchy jeans from Zara. I’m sure you saw this coming, but I paired my favorite brown loafers from Target and called it a day for this outfit. It’s a perfect casual Friday outfit if you ask me!
Back in the early fall, I shared these fun distressed dad jeans from Topshop and you all were obsessed with them. These are honestly some of my favorite jeans because the fit is really comfy. I had to put them away for the really cold winter weather, but as I’m willing it to be spring soon, I thought I’d dig them out of storage. I’m loving blue for spring and I especially love it with denim, so I added this V-neck cardigan from Target and decided to throw this tan Free People jacket that I got a few years ago over top. For shoes, I went with my tried and true tan suede Jeffrey Campbell boots. This outfit gives me so many Danielle Bernstein vibes!
For this last outfit, I went with a similar color scheme because I really love blue that much for this coming season. I got these really comfy tanks from Target recently (bought it in almost every color) and thought it would be so cute to wear with some distressed mom jeans from Topshop. In the summer, this is definitely going to be a go-to outfit! But since it’s technically still winter, I decided to add a navy cardigan from Target over top for some added warmth and the layered look. Of course, I finished off my look with my favorite loafers from Target. They were honestly the best purchase I’ve made this past year!
