It might not feel like it, but we're transitioning to Spring! This time of year there are warmer days and then utterly frigid ones so wardrobe can be a little tricky. One my strategies is to layer away, which also lets me get the most wear out of my clothes all year round. What I wore today is a classic example of easy layering and works really well as we transition from winter to spring.
I started with long sleeved T. I always have several of the Abound brand long-sleeved Ts in my wardrobe to layer under short-sleeved dresses for the winter. My torso is on the narrow side and these are soft and perfectly fitted without making me feel like I'm shrink-wrapped. Then on went the dress. It has a high embellished collar that gives the impression of more layering than I actually did.

And finally, a super soft and warm sweater coat as the outer layer, which is perfect for temps in the 40's. I took it off as we hit the 50's and it's nice to carry around a thinner layer than a big bulky winter coat. For weekends I tend to reach for unstructured outerwear that's cozy and not restrictive so I expect this one will get a lot of play as we head into Spring.

I grabbed my Prada camera bag because it's tiny and cross-body. I'm a huge fan of cross-body bags because they're hands-free and let me run around unencumbered, which is a pretty important factor when you have a small child to chase. I've had this one for 5 years and now that the micro-bag trend is big, we'll see many more options out there in this size. 

This one is the perfect size for pretty much any occasion if you're a minimalist like me, or not planning a long day. I stash my phone, credit cards, smaller sunglasses, gloss, and oh almost forgot - my keys!  Fitting over-sized sunglasses is a little more tricky and does require moving things around to make everything fit. 

Thanks for reading!
