We are in that awkward time between seasons called the Spring transition when the weather doesn’t know if it wants to be in warmer temperatures or colder temperatures. Though Mother Nature, could really care less, it affects us in so many ways. Between going back and forth between warm weather clothes and cold weather clothes to dealing with the allergies and sickness that comes with the fluctuating temperatures, it becomes a hassle. Personally, I even have a hard time dealing with our thermostat. We go from turning it on to off and then back on. Not that it’s too big of a thing, but in the middle of the night when the heat decides to turn on and it was a warmer day, the room gets pretty toasty. But, as always, there’s a way to get through it all when it comes to your wardrobe – especially when you have transitional pieces stocked in your closet.
SHOP THE POST:
As much as I love Fall, Spring is definitely a close second. I love the blooming flowers, the fresh produce that is able to be bought during this season, and the colors that emerge in the landscape and within the clothes that hit the shelves.
There are so many stores already unveiling their Spring lines and blue, lavender, and neutral tones have been a prominent color that I have seen. I may have already gone overboard with ordering clothes in different shades of purple. And I even went and bought a sweatshirt and sweatsuit in light blue that I am super excited to wear once it’s bearable enough to no longer wear a coat.
As you get ready to transition your wardrobe, remember that if there have been pieces of clothes that you no longer wear, recycle them. There’s plenty of ways whether through Poshmark, taking it to a local consignment store, or just donating the clothes if you feel as if they are so far out of season that there is no real cash value. I typically start with them on Poshmark for a few weeks and then try the local consignment store. If they buy anything, I take it off my Poshmark closet and re-list them out. If those clothes aren’t sold within the next couple of months – to the donation bin they go.
Once you’re ready to start replenishing your Spring wardrobe, try to avoid that “OMG that looks amazing on the mannequin, I need to have it” feeling or the “Online it just looks stunning on the model, it has to be mine! feeling. We all go through it and then end up with pieces that we wear once and never wear it again. Instead, look for pieces that you love to wear already in colors that you know compliment your personal style.
For me, I love wearing jumpers, so I got some new jumpers in Spring colors that have different elements about them. That way I know I’ll wear these no matter what.
So rock the Spring transition and get your closet ready with the chicest looks that will have you looking marvelous this season and for the rest of the year.
