Transitioning Into Spring








Blazer: Gifted (similar here - less than $40) | Dress: LOFT (old, similar here)
Shoes: Michael Kors (last season, almost identical here) | Bag: H&M (old, similar here)
Necklace: Julie Vos (c/o) | Watch: Daniel Wellington (c/o) | Sunnies: Karen Walker

It's no secret that one of my favorite color combinations for an outfit is Olive and Blush. You first saw this combo, here. The two colors work so well for transitioning your winter wardrobe into your spring outfits. I'd wear this olive blazer in the fall and winter and you can wear this blush dress in the spring and summer. By pairing the two together, it works so well for these "in between" weeks as we transition from one season to the next.

The blazer was actually a gift from my sweet friend Meaghan. She found it at a thrift store a few years back, and passed it down to me. Honestly, it sat in my closet for about a year before I realized I was wasting time with this gem. I've since paired it over several dresses, with a shell and either pants or skirt, and over jeans for a more dressed up casual Friday look.

I know I say it a lot, but I just love filling my closet with staple items that are super versatile. Quality over quantity people, quality over quantity.
