We are almost one week into March and there are still no real signs of Spring just yet!  In fact, just yesterday we received several inches of fresh new snow here in Nashville and it is still soooo cold!  BUT…come Saturday, the sun will be out, the temps will rise (hopefully melting all of this snow) and then the time changes on Sunday (which I am beyond excited for)…Spring is slowly on its way, YAY!

Transitioning into Spring can be tricky, especially when it is still too cold to go without some sort of layers.  For this look, I have put together a lighter long sleeve tee, a puff vest in the place of a jacket, a light weight flowy scarf, easy skinny jeans, and booties of course.  I've also pulled in some nautical inspired accessories from Shop Suey Boutique that help achieve a lighter, yet still warm, Spring inspired look.  Dreaming of beaches for sure!

March is truly still considered a "Winter" month and although we are ALL craving Spring right now, you can still style smart Spring inspired looks without sacrificing warmth and without jumping ahead too soon to the next season!

    1. Hi Kay! Thanks so much…the orange vest is fun, a little different than the typical puffer vests out there lately. ;-) Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!
