When you want it to be spring but the weather is like, nah.

I’m standing here smiling like my fingers weren’t icicles, but it was 40 degrees when these photos were taken. Even though I love the snow, I’ll admit to a bit of spring fever since I’m planning outfits for our neighborhood’s 4th annual moms’ cruise next week. It’s the best I can do until we’re sailing into the sunshine is wear heavier fabrics in lighter colors – the opposite of a trick I mentioned in this post that’s worked well when seasons transition or the weather is awkward.

This green sweater is my jam – the color is cheery and bright, and I love the button detailing up each side. Threw a striped t-shirt underneath for a bit of interest; while I’m long-torsoed (ugh, grr), the sweater runs slightly shorter than others, making it a perfect contender for layering to bridge the gap or for pairing with high-waisted jeans. The jeans have a demi-boot cut, which is a fun update to the usual skinny jeans. Of course, leopard flats and a vest for another bright, springy layer that’s still functional for cooler temps.

Anyone else reluctantly admitting that they’re ready for spring?
