Spring & Closet Transition

It's not warm yet in New England (as I write this, it is currently about 67 degrees with a high wind warning), but nevertheless it's not too early to start dressing like it's spring in my book. Although I have not put away my winter wardrobe yet (secretly counting the days until I can officially do so), what I've done is getting my lighter, more colorful pieces out and mixing them with my wintery pieces.

And it is small changes like that that will do wonder for the mind and spirit! I like to think that my current wardrobe is in a transition period, and I want to feel joyful about it all the time. 

Turtlenecks are appropriate to transition with into spring and then fall, because they can be paired with pretty much everything - with jeans, trousers, skirts, under a dress, over a dress. I mean...endless possibilities. Of course not all turtlenecks are the same, so the pairing will depend on the turtleneck style. 

Both top and bottom are from Zara; the culottes were part of ZARA winter sale back in February. These sandals with turtoise heels are about 4 years old; there were part of a limited collection from H&M. They are my go-to tan sandals every year and I am hoping not to have to retire them soon because they have been there every step of the way (from blogging days to first-time mom to business launch). Not being melodramatic...at all (le sigh).

Speaking of motherhood, I was joined by a guest who forever has my heart.
