April here has been a bit overcast, brown, and so un-springlike. But as anyone from the north knows, spring can be faked with some strategically placed pastels. So here’s the first pop of color I’ll bring out in my wardrobe for seasonal transition style.
All the photos in this post are by Mo Ashley (see more from this shoot). We shot on location at the Walker Art Center Sculpture Garden, which is a beautiful venue any time of year but you can see from the photos that it’s looking a little brown and not yet covered in flowers! The conservatory (seen in the background) is closed until 2017 as the park undergoes renovation.
This weekend I was finally able to move my own plants into their own outdoor greenhouse after the winter, so the seasons are definitely changing.
Seasonal Transition Style
For spring, I’m loving this look:
- Tall wedge sandals
- Cropped leggings or ponte pants
- Long, loose tops
- Fun scarf
It has everything you could ask for in this transition season – a little bit dressy but still comfy casual, a hint of summery skin but enough coverage for still-cool temps.
Shoes – I got these BOCs on clearance at DSW and these are the closest I could find!
Top – I got mine from a local popup boutique, but it’s also available with shorter sleeves from Shoptiques.
Pants – Lysse, exact style not available, but I’m also loving the side zips on these from Shabby Apple.
Scarf – Lilly Pulitzer (Similar)
Wallet – Target (in four different colors) or get one on clearance.
