How I Dress For Spring In The Mountains

good golly it is cold here!

But I am in a spring state of mind! I've said it before but cardigans are my savior here in the mountains.

I wear cardigans all year long here in this climate. I have cardigans of every color, weight and size and I think they are the epitome of the "third piece." Changing the color changes the season, the mood, the comfort and the whole look. 

For spring and summer I take a casual sleeveless or short sleeved knit dress and add a bright cardigan with a nice weight to it. If by some chance it warms up I can drop if off my shoulders or take it off. 

For this look I showed you a couple of bag options that I love. For jewelry I wore a pair of my new earrings by Baublebar. And I have to tell you these wedges are amazing. Several years ago I bought a pair of wedges that are very similar (see here, here and here) not thinking they would be great quality because of the reasonable price. But I have worn them over and over. They are a staple in my closet for everyday wear. So when I saw this style in an updated version I snapped them up. LOVE! 

If I want a more casual look!

I throw a cute sweatshirt over my dress. I swear it is more comfy than PJs!  

For this look I wore a cropped sweatshirt by Calvin Klien. I changed my earrings out for white tassells by Baublebar and that was it.  Anther easy look for spring in the mountains. 

Here are some fun options for creating your own look!

Change your kicks!

Yep that is what I did for this look. Changed into sneakers and grabbed a backpack. Boom!

The above pictures are kind of dark but they showed my mood in this comfy style. Happy! Good grief my ball needs some air! I about fell right off the thing!

As Always

The Petal Hem

What is a petal hem?

It's the thing for spring! We all know about the raw hem, and the step hem but now we have the petal hem. And I love it.

You all know that I'm not afraid to try new things. I am what my husband calls an early adopter. And the minute I saw a pair of these jeans I knew I would wear them a lot for spring and summer. There are different versions of these jeans but the hem is shaped to different degrees like a petal. These are minimal but I have seen some that the split goes up to the middle of the lower leg. I also notice that the lighter colored jeans are popular for spring. I still love my dark flares but these are in close competition for my heart!

Now add a pop of yellow!

If the petal hem is not enough to make you think spring, then get a load of this yellow cardigan. Think sunshine, daffodils or tulips. 

Most places will have a cool day or evening as spring approaches so a spring colored cardigan can carry you through. In my case it will carry me all year long in the mountains where even in the dead of summer our nights drop down into the 40s and 50s. 

Show a little toe?

Yes! I think sandals can be one of the first things you switch to for spring style.

The last thing in this look that is new for spring is the tie front shirt. Well the tie front anything is fun and on point for spring. I'm linking up my jeans, and sweater and options for creating your own look!

As always gang, thanks for stopping by.

Peace!
