OOTD 5: Transitioning from Winter to Spring

Florida weather has been really fickle throughout this time (like everywhere else except without snow – I promise I’m not complaining!), but lately it’s been b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. In this OOTD, I wanted to inspire with looks that can help transition you from Winter to Spring. I was heading out and about to run errands with my hubby and pooch (long-haired chihuahua named Milo) on this beautiful weekend day.

Style Trials OOTD winter to spring 2Although sunny and warm, there was a bit of a wind chill in the air, so I pulled together this outfit with short, flat boots, a burgundy felt hat, and a holy knit sweater. The holy sweater gives a lighter look for Spring because of the holes (when compared to a solid knits), and it adds an interest of texture. The open knit also pulls together the suede on my shoes and the felt in the hat, which are warmer materials. The floral lightweight shorts of course give this a cooler, relaxed look that all together is a great transition into Spring.

We came across an abandoned soccer field, and stopped to let Milo run around and play in the grass.

I am in love with this hat, and looked long and hard for one that was perfect. I found this online at Tobi. I knew I wanted a burgundy hat, and also one that wasn’t too floppy. I’m also obsessed with my Alex and Ani bracelets, and like to stack them.

I simply did a loose braid on either side, then pulled out strands so it had a messier, boho-chic vibe.

Outfit of the Day 4: Aztec, Arrows and Booties

The Aztec print is still going strong, especially during this cold season. I like it best when mixed in heavy knits, and fell in love with this aztec and arrow knitted long cardigan from my new favorite shopping site, Tobi. Aztec Print Cardigan Tobi and beyond the rack aztec bauble necklace

I love the mix of neon in the sweater, and it paired perfect with one of my favorite necklaces from Beyond the Rack. The triangle stones follow the same lines you find in aztec or arrow prints.

Beauty blogger 101 – put makeup on BEFORE the pic! (oops)

I paired the look with a high top knot bun hairstyle, wrapped a cute gold hair tie around the base, and simple makeup (when I eventually put it on, lol). I kept the jewelry and rest of the outfit simple since the necklace is a statement piece, the cardigan has a bold print, and there are gold buckles on the shoes.
