I call this post “Intro to Spring” as if May wasn’t coming to a close right now. But the fact is I haven’t posted any outfits for this glorious sartorial period of time we’re in! I love spring because you get the benefits of wearing jackets but with outfits that encompass all the inspiration and excitement of summer.
This look, for example, makes a strong nod to the warm weather when you break down the individual pieces and ignore the dark color story. The shirt dress, the cropped suede jacket, and festive backpack all point towards a look for running to work in June. But the darker tones bring it back to the winter period we just came out of.
Taking this compromised approach creates a lovely harmony of feelings towards the way I dress during this time. Nobody can quit jacket season cold turkey, but you also get so inspired by the season that you can’t help but to throw on a dress instead of those same jeans you’ve worn for the past three months.
