My favorite pieces are ones that I end up wearing year-round — pieces that, in the moment, I buy for one or two seasons but that I end up loving so much I carry throughout the year with me. I tend to buy light, distressed denim in summertime that ends up livening up the cold winter months and booties that are meant for the winter, yet are great with a solid pair of shorts in the spring. This LOFT sweater is no exception; last time I wore it on the blog I was in a foot of snow, and now I’m wearing it in 65 degree sunshine. It’s great as a layering piece in the winter, but it also serves as a perfect popover for when the sunny, warm days turn into chilly summer nights. Yesterday I paired it with my trusty J.Crew blue and white stripe skirt (I’ve had this thing for years and I’ve never found a better summer skirt) and my favorite Madewell tote to run errands and enjoy the sunshine.

Last week, I finally caved in and bought work clothes. I’ve been burying my head in the sand and completely avoiding the fact that in just a few short months, once I get a job for post-grad, I’ll probably have to dress in something nicer than just jeans and a tee every day (but let’s cross our fingers for jeans being completely acceptable). But these Banana Republic pants actually take some of the fear out of being a grown-up because they’re just so damn cute — I mean, come on, aren’t they?? I’ve been dressing them up lately, but I could totally see myself rocking them with a tee and sandals in the summer months. I love those pieces — the ones you can so very easily dress up or down.
Since my brain has been focused on work-attire, I’ve also been drawn to simple, everyday jewelry, which is why I’ve fallen so hard for Wrenn. They make the absolute best simple earrings and rings that are great everyday pieces. Which are your faves?

The minute I put this outfit on the other day, I immediately felt like a bowl of rainbow sherbert. Then, when I found this wall, I knew I had to snap some pics in front of it — it was too good to pass up. I’m trying to incorporate as many light colors / brights into my wardrobe as possible to transition into spring, and we’ve actually had a few weeks of tolerable weather and sunshine which makes it easier to dress in the styles I like. How do you transition into spring? Do you have any go-to tricks or tips to dress for spring when it’s still chilly?
