Is it worth the money?

Transitions! Winter to spring pieces!

      With cold weather soon coming to an end, most stores are beginning to bring out their Spring/Summer collections. But before you say goodbye to dark colored pieces, sweaters, and jackets you should consider investing in some pieces that can easily transition from cold to warmer weather! Here are some of ideas of versatile clothing from three of my favorite stores - J.crew, Zara, and Anthropologie!

                                                                           Jackets

Anthropologie succeeded in making a jacket that can be worn all year round. This edgy, yet girly, moto jacket can be combined with virtually any color scheme because of its neutral color. For the winter time, a darker colored pants and scarf would balance the brightness of the white. In the Spring, this jacket would look amazing with an all-white ensemble or with other neutral or light pieces, such a light pink maxi-skirt or a light patterned skirt. 

Most girls have at least one denim jacket in their closet because of easy they are to wear. Paired with a cute scarf, dark jeans or leggings, and some riding boots, this denim jacket from Zara will complete an easy, chic look. Pair it with a white lace skirt and some gladiator sandals for a casual spring/summer outfit.

J.Crew's Pea coat trench has to be my favorite because of its timeless classical look. This jacket can either be dressed up (with a little black dress and heels) or dressed down (jeans, scarf, and trendy sneaks) for the winter time. Practically speaking, this jacket is perfect for rainy spring days but will still  make any outfit look cute!

Dresses

Anthropologie took a unique spin on the LBD this season. The beautiful beaded work around the hem and sleeves gives it a hint of a bohemian feel. For the colder weather, picture it with black tights and classic pumps. For warm weather, add a stack of bangles and a pair of strappy sandals or wedges!

I fell in love with this dress from J.Crew as soon as I saw it! The print is so eye-catching and simple shift style makes it super easy to wear. With a knee length black dress coat and a pair or cute ankle booties your outfit would be complete! For spring, I would wear this dress with a pair of simple black flats and some contrasting colored jewelry.

Everyone knows florals are a spring staple (groundbreaking...I know). But in the case of this Zara floral dress they can be a part of winter too! The darker colors make it easy to wear in the winter but the florals allow it to be worn in the spring too! The style and shape of the dress add a bit of fanciness to the dress, but wear it with flat sandals to dress it down!

Skirts

J.Crew is known for making classic, yet modern clothing. Their navy laced skirt is easily one of the most transitional pieces you could own. Add a pair of leather riding boots or ankle booties and a button down for an instant classic look. Or, just wear it with a white tee, sandals, and some bright jewelry!

I absolutely love this sequined Anthropologie skirt! It's to die for!! the color combination and shape are so flattering and elegant! I love the way the model is wearing it with booties - perfect for spring/summer! I would wear it with a tank top and cardigan and knee high boots for cold weather.

When I saw this Zara skirt in store I was immediately drawn to it. Navy is a color that will never go out of style and the jacquard print is so modern. Like the model, dark ankle boots and a dark shirt would look great with the skirt and a pea coat will complete the outfit. But, with a flowy, cream colored shirt, tank top, and ballet flats or sandals you can wear this in the warmer months.

Let me know what you think of my post and ideas! I would love to hear what you guys have to say!
