Budget Stylista: Bust Out that Spring Wardrobe!

So, unfortch we’re a week into April and it’s still cold. Which really puts a kerfuffle in your plans to wear your newest spring purchases. Colorful spring tops, shorts, peep toe pumps, cute spring dresses and springy cardigans are all sitting in your closet watching you take your same black wool sweater and boots out day after day. But like those cute puppies that never get adopted, they want some love too. Only the words ‘frost’ and ‘bite’ don’t sound so appealing, so you let your spring wardrobe sit and collect dust.
But fear not. I am here to save the day (and your wardrobe boredom)!
You can put your heavy winter things away -they’ve seen enough light of day for the year – and start pulling out those fun spring additions! By pairing them with the right things to keep you warm but the look springy, you will look fresh, cute, and ready for some sunshine.

Top, Shorts, Tights, Pumps

Let’s face it, as cute as these shorts are, sporting them with a tank, sandals and bare legs is just a waste of your shaving time in these temps. But no need for this spring essential to sit idly by. For now, pair with black tights, but keep it springy with a colorful pop on the top. I love this orchid purpley-pink boho top paired with the grey; keeps it fresh and cool for spring, while still keeping you warm. A wardrobe win-win.
Summer dress warmed up.

Dress, Cardigan, Tights, Boots, Bag

Sure, from the outset this dress looks great. For July. When you can throw it on with woven sandals and sunscreen. But no need to waste this cuteness when you can totes warm-ify it for now. Pair with brown tights, camel boots and this coral sweater. By using a spring color palette, the boots and tights won’t look so December!
