Finally Springing Back

Good morning followers!  I apologize for disappearing for so long.  I hope you had smooth transition into 2014 and a wonderful January.  As most of you know, the groundhog saw his shadow Sunday morning, predicating six more weeks of winter.  BRRR!  Of course some of you might actually be excited about the cooler weather.  Here in Florida, I am ready to pull out my Lilly Pulitzer shifts and Jack Rogers sandals instead of my long pants and riding boots.  However, there are a few ways to "spring-ifying" your winter wardrobe.

For the Love of Floral

My favorite part of spring is the appearance of new flowers, plants, and baby animals.  Mix some brightly colored patterns with dark tones for a classy outfit.  For example, pair Lilly Pulitzer's First Impression Elsa over navy Pixie Pants from J. Crew.  Finish the look with your favorite strand of pearls and set of riding boots.

Breaking out the Pastels

Nothing reminds me more of springtime than pastel colors.  Light pink, baby blue, and pale green are perfect base colors for a spring inspired outfit.  These Tory Burch skinny jeans would be adorable with a patterned sweater and ankle boots.  Don't be afraid to mix pastel colors with bright patterns or dark colors.

Enjoy the Layers

Keeping warm while looking classy can be difficult.  Preppy classics such as Ralph Lauren's Crested Jersey-Knit Blazer in hot pink over a simple sweater or long-sleeve polo shirt will beat the winter cold and drab.  Create a Gossip Girl look with a pleated skirt and black tights.  Don't forget your Queen B headband! 
What will you be wearing these next six weeks?
