Transition from Winter to Spring with Awesome Street Style

Spring Street Style Secrets

With warm weather hopefully just around the corner, I keep dreaming about my favorite Spring staples to pull out from the back of my closet.  It was a long winter wearing puffy jackets.  I’m ready for windbreakers, leather jackets, short skirts, and shorts!  At this time of year when the weather is still fairly unpredictable, (especially in some regions!) I like to wear layers.  Layering smart can help create some pretty chic street style.

I wore the above look to brunch and it was perfect.  I combined plaid and leather and sparkles, creating a look that was equal parts casual, edgy, and feminine.  This is the time to slowly transition from boots to sneakers…and then finally to sandals when the temperature starts rising!

I livened up my dark fall colors (i.e. black jacket and navy plaid shirt) by wearing fun Spring-y accessories like the bold pink handbag and sparkly pink sneakers.  Recently I’ve been obsessed with my extra large silver hoop earrings because they make every look a bit more boho.  I had more than enough excitement going on in this look so I kept my other jewelry minimal.

I wore this look out to brunch on the weekend.  When I don’t want to spend an hour getting ready, I take a few shortcuts.  I cut out hair prep time by doing my hair in a ponytail.  The big silver hoop earrings help make me look stylish without any added primping time.  I can jump out of bed and into the car in ten minutes or less with this look.

In the Spring, it’s easy to keep makeup minimal.  All you need is a freshly washed face a little mascara and a pink tint on your lips.

Here are six items to help you recreate this Spring Street Style look:

3 Ways to Stay Stylish when it’s Freakin’ Freezing Outside

I love when I come across those open-toe suede booties in stores in March and think what crazy person is itching for frost-bitten toes. Oh wait, that’s me.

When I moved to California in 2013, winter trends like open toe booties (which I thought seemed like an oxy-moron), off-the-shoulder sweaters, and short-sleeve coats all seemed very weird to me. If it’s hot enough to wear open toe shoes, why wear booties? If it’s cold enough to need a sweater, why keep your shoulders bare?  If you have to ruin your outfit with a coat, why cut the sleeves off?

That’s when I discovered warm winters and realized that it can be fun dressing for “winter” if you don’t actually have to worry about the cold.  But when you’re stuck in a locale where you can see your breath when you’re walking outside, you actually need to cover and zip shit up, if you know what I mean.

Faux fur coats are a staple for cold winters.  Being the wild fashionista I am, I chose one that’s pink. Hot pink. Bundling up on top makes it a bit easier to keep the legs bare in a skirt.

It took two minutes for me to whip this outfit together before heading out for brunch.  I paired a simple black leather skirt with a fun graphic tee, slipped into my sparkly pink sneakers, then threw on the pink fur coat with an obnoxiously large pair of gold earrings.

When you feel yourself going insane from the bitter cold, keep your soul warm with pink fur, pink sparkles, and over-the-top jewelry!

Outfit of the Day: Sophisticated Chic on the Streets of SF

shul outfit on lombard

Today’s look features a button down top and pencil skirt from Mendocino.

Pencil skirts are great because they give you enough coverage to ensure you don’t show off your ass every time you sit down or stand up.  This pencil skirt however, is special because it has an added sexy touch…a slit in the front on the one side, making the skirt conservative on the right and all party on the left.

Love,
