As I sit here writing this on April 24th, I think I might finally be able to say it… winter… is… over! Did I say it too soon? Mother Nature really likes to mess around with us during April. She teases us with a bit of glorious sunshine here, then gives us a torrential rain storm a couple of hours later. BUT, I’m pretty sure that we’re not going to be hit with another snowstorm in New York this year (insert prayer hands here) and that the dark, cold, bitter days are over.
Rejoice!! The beginning of spring weather, and that little touch of sunshine that comes with it, has the power to change my entire mood. All of a sudden I’m a social butterfly, wanting to meet for patio drinks every night of the week. I’m walking instead of slinking onto the subway, I’m smiling at random people on the street.
Springtime also reinvigorates my will to dress every morning. Under the shining sun, my go-to jeans and sweater feel stale and boring. My long lost creativity comes flooding back, just in time! Nothing beats those little hints of spring, but fluctuating weather isn’t exactly easy to dress for.
If you need a bit of inspiration to get the wardrobe juices flowing, we came up with some ideas for you here. Spring dressing for me is all about layers, layers, layers, both for creativity and for comfort. Suiting separates, jackets, blouses and light knits all lend themselves nicely to the look.
During springtime in New York, you never know what the weather gods will bestow on us, so best to be prepared and layer up!
