Happy Tuesday! Sadly it's colder in Spring than it was in Winter this year. Sooo, I'm still in lots of layers. I start to get antsy and impatient when it's the end of March and it's still cold. I completely lose tolerance for temps below 40. I notice I start to really pile on colors and go a little crazy with mixing textures and layers, as if the colors will warm me up. I have 4 layers on - tank top, button-down, a shawl-collar vest, and then this long wool coat!

It's the beginning of Spring and I'm trying to keep wearing black to a minimum. It can be a challenge! In an otherwise bland outfit I love to use leopard instead of black. Have you tried that? It gives your outfit major punch. So I used the leopard skinny belt and pumps are the sauce on my collared shirt plus dark jeans combo. Then I threw on a vest for an added layer of warmth and chose this soft drapey one to contrast the structure of the button down and the coat. You can see the vest styled with blush and neutrals here if you missed that post.

The handbag is a most amazing shade of blue. It's a great color accent for many color palettes and occasions.To me it's like the leopard. It will always stand out but can be used as a neutral if you either have other strong patterns in play or if the rest of your outfit is neutrals and you want a pop of color. Banana Republic commented on my Instagram that it was a pop of Spring color and it definitely is.

Thank you so much for reading, have a great week and hope to see you back on the blog Friday!
