Transition to Spring Begins
Hello, friends! Today my transition to spring officially begins.
Though cool weather will be here off and on in my part of the country for a little longer, March is typically when I begin to transition.
This weekend, I plan to move some of the heavier garments to another closet and pull forward the lighter garments in order to begin the transition.
Also, in coming days, I will refresh my home decor a bit…so bring on the spring transition.
TRANSITION TO SPRING BEGINS WITH NEW ITEMS
Last Sunday, I took you shopping with me at Marshall’s and I purchased two pieces.
I promised to show you how I would wear them…and these pieces are perfect for a transition to spring.
I will be wearing this Rachel Zoe Paisley blouse ($20 at Marshalls!) often…I really like it! It fits my style adjectives so well…joyful, approachable, creative, polished and current.
I kind of love that it is from Rachel Zoe since her quote had a lot to do with me creating the Foundational Five Personal Style Building Blocks to dress by!
I have been on the hunt for a little more green so this blouse captured my eye right away…and I love the paisley print with a touch of gold metallic thread.
This is a way to lighten a look up a bit and feel refreshed though outside it might still be a little cold.
Note: In the picture by the quote, I am wearing my Chico’s Aratta Crane-Print Kimono…one of my favorites…and ON SALE!
I love it over this column of Chico’s jasper colored items. The majority of items in this color are also currently ON SALE!
TRANSITION TO SPRING BEGINS WITH NEW ITEMS: #2
My second new item from Marshall’s is this 100% Lyocell tunic which I can wear as pictured or as a topper.
It is a very “cool” fabric and will be perfect for this spring climate for my life around the house and running out and about.
I styled it for a transition to spring look with my old leggings by Johnny Was (which were purchased on a clearance sale!)
It would also go great with this Embroidered Denim Pull-On Ankle Jeggings from Chico’s.
I added my gold ballet flats. For me gold shoes are a must in my wardrobe and compliment my autumn palette perfectly.
Here are a few more for your consideration…love that first pair by Vionic!
The beautiful necklace was designed just for me by Pam Neri Jewelry Designer…her work is wonderful, creative and artisan.
TRANSITION TO SPRING WITH FRESH MAKEUP
I began using Laura Geller Makeup at Thanksgiving and I still use it every day.
This is fresh, natural makeup and a perfect way for those of us over 50 to look youthful and natural and NOT made up.
I still recommend it highly. Consider starting with the CULT CLASSICS FULL FACE KIT...it is pictured above.
They also have excellent customer service ready to help you if needed.
For now, these are the ways my transition to spring has begun. I am excited to head off to the market today and hoping purchase some fresh flowers…but even those cost more these days!!
I know most of you are cold, but how can you transition to spring now in small ways to brighten up you day?
Give it a try and always………………………………………………………..
