If you’re like us, you may be chomping at the bit to pack away all those heavy sweaters and layering pieces in your perfectly curated plastic bins under your bed. This is a gentle reminder to hold your horses, Turbo. With this highly unpredictable weather, you’re going to need to leave out some winter wardrobe staples that can seamlessly transition you between the extremes right now. Here are a few standard (and ethical) pieces we suggest keeping around just for funsies until Mother Nature makes her mind up on what season she wants it to be.
This could be a jean jacket, a bomber, a blazer or an army jacket – but the point is it gives you more warmth than a cardigan. In fact, you can wear it over a cardigan or a sweater if need be. A light jacket is still a must for those random blistery days or cold mornings.

Quarter Sleeve Sweaters/shirts
Every lady needs some shirts/sweaters with ¾ length sleeves because you can wear it during the colder months AND during these tricky transition months! Pair a scarf with any of these pretties and you’re ready for whatever temperature the day brings!
(Our Farrah Sweater has been on repeat the last few weeks. Good thing she comes in three different colors)
(Our Hattie Sweater has been marked down! Pom poms aren't just for cheerleaders, anymore.)
The true telltale sign of spring is exposing one’s feet. If we’re honest, we’re actually grateful for a little more time to get these talons under control. A good pair of ankle booties can be paired with skirts, dresses, skinny’s, or even shorts – so keep them out and keep them on for the next few weeks! Here’s a few you might just fall in love with!

(Found these in our online clothing swap this week for $20! If you aren't a part of a clothing swap - find one. They're magical)
This may be an old wives tale, but rumor has it hats help keep your body temperature from escaping through your cabeza (i.e that's head in spanish). They also help hide bad/non-wash hair days. Plus, you can take them off if/when temperatures start to climb giving you a stylish, layering option. So basically we don't see the downside of wearing a hat.
(Everyone could use a good pop of color near their eyes. Try this beanie from Krochet Kids)
(We usually have luck finding hats in vintage stores, but we just found Yellow 108 and are in L-O-V-E )
