Good Afternoon friends. I’m definitely having a slow blogging start today, but oh well.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I spent the last few days in Ohio with my family and once the rain FINALLY stopped it started to feel a bit like spring. As much as I’m itching to pull out my sleeveless dresses and jumpsuits, the weather isn’t quite there yet, so I’ve been challenging myself to incorporate summer pieces into my wardrobe without freezing. This past weekend I knew I wanted to wear this gorgeous Zara embroidered bag and my red mules, but I also knew I couldn’t get away with a dress. Luckily I’d packed two classic pieces – my dark skinny jeans + my (faux) leather jacket, and paired with an Old Navy striped peplum, red mules and a floral bag, they almost feel springy!

Fingers crossed the weather pulls itself together soon, but until then – what are your favorite tips for dressing for spring when it feels closer to winter?

Thanks for following along!

xo, Maddy

    It is still so cold here, so this is an awesome post!
    I am loving your shoes – and usually I don’t like red – but mules are so cute!!
    Definitely, my favourite tip would be wearing long sleeved crops over dresses. I get into dresses ASAP.

      I’m definitely not a red person either but I can handle it with shoes and accessories for sure. And I love that idea Kate!

    That’s it. I am coming to your house and raiding your shoes. Hand over those mules and no one gets hurt. Maybe that bag too. Our weather has been yo-yoing here. Hot then cold. I am ready for spring to come and stay. You look so cute!
