Spring 4ward!!

I'm guessing that it's officially Spring considering an hour of my free time that I didn't have to spare was snatched away from me without my permission this past Sunday the warm weather is starting to break! Just last weekend I was bundled up in wool and fur and as much as I love me some fur, I'm looking forward to the nicer weather and the outfits to match. To transition from the colder weather to the warmer weather without diving knee deep (hold off on the booty shorts people), particularly considering the weather on the east coast has some type of chemical imbalance (snow one day; 80 degrees the next), I usually start out slow by balancing my outfits with some pieces that cater to both warm and cooler temperatures. I call these my transition pieces.  You can do that easily with your color and fabric choices; using pieces that can be layered easily to keep you warm or that can be peeled off to keep you cool; wearing open toes and cut out shoes, cropped cut pants and sleeveless dresses.  Here, I paired a top that was designed to mimic the silhouette of a large scarf.  It's extremely light, a little sheer and a golden yellow so perfect for warm weather.  I added a bright white simple tank and paired it with a pair of navy trousers and cutout/peep toe oxfords to keep things nice and balanced.  Looks like I'm transitioning!!!  What wardrobe rules and pet peeves do you Honeeyz have for transitioning from cooler to warmer weather and vice versa? 

Scarf Top and Scarf: BCBGeneration; Navy Trousers: F21; Cut out Oxford Pumps: Marc Fisher; Leather Clutch: Gap; Sunglasses: Christian Dior; Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs
I love that the color of the scarf is simply just an inverted color pattern of the top...it pulls everything together
These Marc Fisher Oxfords are perfect for transition b/c they are more of a shoe with cutouts/peep toes than they are sandals so the work in warm temperatures and reasonably cooler temperatures as well. 

I took this belt off and on...  so indecisive. I preferred it without the belt b/c it gave it a more relaxed kinda look. With the belt seemed a little more tailored, which is fine, but just not the mood I was going for. I was indulging in guilt free slacking today and didn't want a belt or any other accessory getting in the way.  Maybe next time I'll take life a little more seriously! :-)  
Giving the belt another go around... 


  1. I am loving this outfit, the scarf top is so cute!!!

    1. Hey Carsedra! Thanks for the compliment! This top can be super fun and easy to sneak into the work attire (that's always a challenge...having a little fun with your work wardrobe without being totally unprofessional).
