fall into spring

I always feel that a good way to transition from season to season is to wear last season's colors in this season's silhouettes. It creates such a chic dynamic and works perfectly with changing weather! I found this cropped blazer in a gorgeous rust color and paired it with a silky dress for a dressed-up summer look.

More ways to combine seasonal trends?

Fall-favorite animal print on a light camilonger length skirts in a spring bright, and high-waisted pieces with a shorter hemline. By crossing trends, it's easy to look seasonally appropriate all the time.

Now, if only the weather in cloudy Seattle were as bright as this dress...have a great Monday!

  22. What great tips to transition between seasons! My favorite suggestion is longer lengths in bright colors- I can't wait to wear a coral maxi skirt that I thrifted recently! :)

  30. I love both of those dresses, the floral and the yellow. Very pretty colorfulness, hehe... :) I love transitional weather actually, where it's warm enough to have bare legs for wearing dresses and skirts and such, but still cool enough to wear cardigans and sweaters! My favorite.
