There’s always a few weeks during early spring where I want to wear “springy” outfits, but it isn’t warm enough for flower dresses and sandals. I always struggle to find a way to adopt spring trends while staying relatively warm. And I have to be careful not to freeze in the evening– here in Denver, it can be 70 degrees at 5 pm and drop to 40 degrees in an hour, when the sun sets (it’s a high desert, so we’ve got huge temperature differences between day and night). A good way to dress warmly but still look inspired by the season is to wear light coloured-denim with a white t-shirt and a pastel scarf.
I love light hues during spring, I find them so refreshing. I’m currently in love with my new lace-up flats from Banana Republic. I especially love how they make any outfit more interesting!
I’m still wearing one of my amazing t-shirts from ONNO, which is a really good base layer for these chilly nights. I was walking to happy hour with Chelsea and Zia (my pup), and was trying to teach her how to high-five me. Not sure she gets the difference between “shake” and “high five” yet, but we’re working on it!Do you have any tips on putting together spring outfits that will actually keep you warm? What are your go-to pieces during early spring?
